RST Ventilator III Jacket Review

Summer on a motorcycle should be fantastic – so long as you wear the right gear. Sweating buckets in non ventilated kit is a recipe for you losing concentration and who knows what else…

So why not invest in some kit that will keep you in tip-top condition – like this RST Ventilator III Jacket. I’ve dragged mine from the loft this morning after using my winter kit with the liners taken out up until now. You’ll have to do the same with the Ventilator, as there is a thermal liner and a waterproof inner that will need removing, but once they are out you’ll get nothing but a cool breeze blowing through!



The Mesh outer isn’t going to do much in a crash, but beneath that you have CE protection and a decent back protector meaning that it offers a good compromise between comfort and safety. It has an rrp of ¬£169.99 but you can shop around and it’ll be a bit cheaper. Head to RST’s website for more info – and then keep your fingers crossed that the sun stays out!
