Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys: High performance riding gear – the women’s Harley Davidson FXRG Jacket.
I value the unbiased opinion of those not tainted with “marketing media” favoritism or connected to the money behind the fluff and puff promo behind a product I’m interested in. Today we have such a diverse selection of products marketed to women riders, I think it could be helpful to spotlight gear and recommendations that are earning praise from real women riders.
So with that said, let me introduce hot motto mama Karen Kamrowski. Karen hails from Alexandria, Minnesota and is the proud owner of a 2005 Harley Davidson Softail Deluxe and a 2005 Harley Davidson Road Glide. Two bikes for one gal, I like it.
Karen has been riding motorcycles for 8 years and highly recommends the Women’s FXRG Harley Davidson jacket. She shares, “I had purchased a FXRG Harley Davidson jacket the weekend before a fall color ride in 2006. I was wearing it when there was debris on the road on a curve and I lost control of my bike on the curve. I crashed and broke my left clavicle and cracked my left shoulder blade. I had not one bruise or any road rash on my body, thanks to the jacket!
I had initially picked this style HD jacket because it was heavy leather, had a 5-year warranty on zippers etc. It has a full quilted jacket as a liner (wanted insulation for the arms in colder weather) that can be worn separately. It had all the protective padding in elbows, back, shoulders, is waterproof and has the air vents for warmer weather. It held up wonderfully during my accident. I was grateful we took it off before the ambulance got there or they would have cut it off! It has a few scuffs on it but the leather is intact”
I’m happy to say Karen is still riding, making a healthy recovery after her crash.
I agree with her recommendation, as I too am a fan of the Women’s FXRG Leather Jacket. I purchased mine a few years back and it has been one of my “go to” jackets ever since. I’m thankful I’ve never had a situation like Karen’s to put the protective qualities to the test. What I have appreciated about this style is the comfort and technology that sometimes is lacking in heavy-duty protective jackets. It is designed with what HD calls the CoolMax lining. A waterproof and wind change membrane, which reacts to the rider’s body temperature and it works. It also comes with a lightweight, removable, Primaloft warmth liner, which can easily be removed and worn alone if you choose. The CE-approved body armor lightweight and also removable.
The Women’s FXRG Leather Jacket is a style I’m glad I invested in and consider it a keeper. It’s not a fashion or nifty leather biker inspired jacket, the FXRG is a women’s specific, functional high quality piece of performance ride gear. Retailing around $650.00, it’s worth the investment.
