I get to try a new jacket: Macna Oasis
« on: December 03, 2013, 09:05:39 PM »
So I got an email from Twisted Throttle for Cyber Monday and one of the things that crossed my mind was this jacket

http://www.twistedthrottle.com/macna-men-s-oasis-motorcycle-jacket

They are being dicontinued so I said 'Screw it' and called them up to put one aside for me to pick up. Went in today to get the right size. I bought 2 sizes too small when I called so I'm glad I went in to get the right size. After much looking for the size I needed out back (they're still looking for 2 more that the systems says they have  :crazy:) While I was there, I saw a different price sign and asked 'Since I'm here, can I get it for that price?' He said, 'Sure, must be some kind of in store promo'. So a $335 jacket, discounted to $180, and then another $25 off for an in-store promo!

water liner

inside of the main shell, with a zipper attachment for their pants. I haven't tested it to see if it will work with my Firstgear pants

The liners are kinda interesting design with the liners. They all interlink at the cuffs

The water liner attaches to the main shell and the warmth liner attaches to the water liner about 2 inches inside the sleeve. You can remove the water liner and the warmth liner attaches to the same zipper inside the shell as the water liner.

Thanks for posting, looks like a nice jacket for that amount of money.  :thumbsup:

I like the outside zippered cuffs that keep all the layers together. It should make it easy to get on and off.

You would think that. But the layers are also zippered together inside the main shell. They use full circumference zippers, unlike every other jacket that uses zippers up each side only and a set of snaps at the top and bottom. It wouldn't be a problem to unzip the layers, but they used a very small zipper that feels on the weaker aide if you work it too hard.
