You could probably best describe the Ridge GTX jacket as outdoor-meets-motorcycling- meets-high-end technology. The Ridge GTX takes you on a journey from the outback to the city streets and back again. It has all the functional features and benefits of a top-level touring jacket that are seamlessly integrated into a clean and minimalist design. The way the venting works is something completely new, as it is a combined functionality of the YKK AQUASEAL® front zipper. When closed, it’s 100% waterproof. When open, it reveals a 3D mesh ventilation panel that will let in tons of air. More airflow comes in through the venting zippers at the upper arms and hot air can escape through the venting zippers at the back. The laminated 3L GORE-TEX® outer shell guarantees to keep you dry whilst maintaining the highest level of breathability on the planet. The removable GORE-TEX® storm collar, which you can store in the stealth back pocket in case you’re not using it, is part of this all-inclusive package. Protection-wise, it’s top-notch, of course! Our award-winning SEEFLEX™ CE-level 2 armor is located at the elbows and shoulders and, if desired, you can upgrade the protection level by adding a SEESOFT™ CE-level 2 back protector into the already-prepared insert and/or add our SEESOFT™ CE-level 1 chest protectors.
