I put a lot of miles in my Tourmaster Transition Series 4 jacket, and the Series 5 retains all the elements I came to appreciate in the former version. It utilizes 600-denier Carbolex polyester fabric for the main construction, with 1,680-denier ballistic polyester on the elbows and forearms. It's got CE-approved Armadillo armor in the shoulders and elbows, and a waterproof Rainguard barrier along with a removable thermal liner. What I really enjoy about this jacket is the quality of the details, especially considering its affordable price. These include the Aqua-Barrier under-the-helmet hood that quickly deploys from the collar, pockets that are easy to access with gloves on, pinch vents to help keep the intakes wide open and the air flowing, and two-way main zipper closure for a reliable seal against the elements. The fit is also spot-on for me, much the same as the Scorpion. Not too bulky or heavy or baggy in my standard size, but not too tight or restrictive either. Plus, the Series 5 adventure jacket is available in men's and women's cuts, and ranges up to 5XL for men. There are tall cuts too, ranging up to 4XL.
