    Triumph Hybrid Jacket

    Have been looking for a Fall/Winter Jacket and found this Triumph branded $450 jacket w/ thermal and waterproof liners on Ebay, from a Triumph dealership. Asked if they would price match a competitor,  which they did and got it for $160 + taxes and shipping.
    Think there are a few left in xxl and xxxl.

    Yep, I agree. Needed winter jacket (doesn't get real bad here in Georgia) and it was between this jacket and a Joe Rocket Classic '92. When the dealer lowered the price to $160, for a $430 jacket, jumped on it. Bought an orange Icon mesh vest to wear over when on the bike! :002:

    Installing heated grips and seats this weekend. Was on bike this past weekend, temps in the 40's, wearing jeans, long sleeve t shirt, wind breaker and a Joe Rocket mesh jacket and have to say the only thing that got cold was my ankles...guess it goes to show how well designed the Trophy's body works are! :028:

    This modern trend of putting a waterproof liner inside the jacket really bugs me.  The concept is so flawed.  Why on earth anyone would prefer an inner to an outer waterproof liner is beyond me.  I have Triumph jackets where the waterproof liner has never been out the wardrobe.  If it rains I put a Richa (great quality for the 35 price) waterproof overjacket on.  That way my expensive jacket keeps clean from road spray and crap and whatever I have in my pockets doesn't need to be moved to a safe 'dry' area.  I also don't have to stop, remove my jacket and try to fit a zip-in or snap-in waterproof liner when the rain starts.

    Agree on the waterproof liner Novo and have rain suit here! They way I look at it the WP liner will just help keep heat in, worst case senario.  :164:

    Jacket delivered today. If weight has anything to do with quality, this jacket is the best ever made....feels like it weighs 50 pounds! :033:
    In all seriousness though, it seems well made, comes with CE3 rated shoulder, elbow and back protection, leather accents on shoulder,
     elbow and Triumph lettering areas and will definitely keep  you warm during cold rides.
    Guess Triumph believes in quality, not only in their bikes but, everything with their name on it! :020:
