  1. We purchased these jackets at the last minute before heading out on a Scooter trip to California.
    Since we leave after work, around 7:00 PM in Tucson, we expect it to get very cold: We have traveled on New Years Eve to California when the daytime temperature is 80 degrees, but the nighttime temperature drops to 40 or lower. Riding on scooters at 75 mph adds a great deal of wind chill into the equation – we froze our butts off as we were not prepared for the extreme cold.
    Anyway, this time around the our new Mountain Hardware Ardica jackets proved to be “toasty” and quite comfortable for the long ride; it takes us about 9 full hours of riding with 4 gas stops along the way.

    The only complaint my wife had was that her hands were a little cold and her feet and legs were a “little cold”.

    When will you be making heated overpants (with side zips) and possibly gloves and socks/booties?

    Thanks,
    Peter & Tammy Curtiss

    PS, we are both wearing these jackets all the time now when going to work in the early mornings; temperatures are around 40 degrees and getting colder. We don’t need to turn them on, because of their superior wind proctection and insulation.
    Nice Gear!
