Jacket Road Race

A very good companion

The road race is always ruthless: when you’re wearing a jacket 12 hours a day for six days, even the smallest flaw can quickly become unbearable.

In the end, I got not much to fault the DXR Meta: it is comfortable and light to wear. Even after the biggest stage of my trip (900 km across the Poland and the northern Czech Republic) I’ve never had the feeling of being crushed by this jacket.

But this lightness unfortunately has a price: the heat. The beginning of my journey has shown that the thermal lining is limited until the thermometer does not exceed 10 °, and its attachments are pretty fragile for use. But lhen I spent an entire afternoon to roll in the Black Forest under a blazing sun, I removed the lining and Mbakecheng discovered that this jacket much better ran high temperatures. Four zippered vents fast become one of the greatest assets of this jacket, although they can not work miracles behind a high bubble.Inside mesh should be more comfortable in direct contact with the skin and looks as solid as we can find in competition, but it has at least the merit of the movement of air inside the jacket.

Sobriety and safety

Combining the softshell and cordura, the DXR Meta has a nice and sober look while providing effective abrasion in case of sliding resistance. It is comfortable to wear, and adapts to the morphology of the biker through clamping to the size, and the arm bands. The DXR Meta does not stand by his number of pockets, but the two side pocket and the inside pocket is more than sufficient. Little extra that becomes essential in everyday life: the wrist Pocket allows to drag carefree toll or parking badge. My only real regret is the absence of tabs on the slides of the zippered closures, which complicates much manipulation of the pockets and vents when wearing gloves.

Security level, there is no fantasy, but we get the essential trio: protection at shoulders and elbows are perfectly positioned, and the Pocket for Ridge (not supplied) hosted perfectly my Furygan D3O. The DXR Meta has also small retro-reflective inserts, which increase visibility at night and remaining very discreet in the light of the day.

At what biker is destined the DXR Meta?

The general level of finish of the DXR Meta is perfectly honorable, even if he isn’t up to the models of the premium brands. But… the price either! Placing himself under the symbolic bar of €100, this jacket reached an excellent value. The jacket is probably the most abused equipment during a trip, and the Meta DXR conceded the very pace that I imposed.

It found its place in the closet of the bikers looking for a very good jacket mid season/summer affordable, effective, and no frills. It’s a choice I would advise both bikers to the budget tight to those who roll every day, and who would like to save their high-end equipment saving motorcycle-work-sleep.
