The Field sheer Mech2 Mesh jacket has been one of the most popular jackets from this well known riding gear manufacturer. The one reviewed in this article is the 2007 model that has actually been upgraded slightly in the past 3 years into an altogether new model but older stocks are still available online for great deals. The main advantage of this jacket (like other mesh jackets in general) is the comfort in hot weather conditions as the mesh allows cool at to pass through. The removable thermal liner (that can be zipped on the inside of the jacket) makes this jacket usable even during cold weather conditions a fact which was borne out during the Royal Enfield Himalayan Odyssey 2010.

The CE approved armor provided in the jacket for the elbows (long enough cover forearms), shoulders and the back have been designed for the riders comfort. One of the primary reason for opting for the Field sheer Mach2 Mesh is that it also features abrasion resistant “leather” patches in place of the mesh on the shoulders elbows, stomach, and part of the back. This adds another level of protections, as these are the most common abrasion points on a riding jacket in case of a fall. The jacket has a Velcro adjustable, micro-fleece collar with padding, which adds to the rider’s comfort
