I washed mine before I sent it back to Cali for adjustments. Although I'm sure they get a lot of gear that is an olfactory challenge, this son of a east Tennessee mountain girl was raised with better manners. I noticed no difference in stiffness at all when it came out. I agree with the comment about it not staying wet long. It was darn near dry coming out of the spin cycle.

I hit mine with Febreze every now and again to try to keep it from getting too bad. No one has complained (yet).

Agree with that I put mine on and rode home. I do have to use my Amazon Prime and grab some of the fabric protector. When I was out at the factory they showed some examples of gear that did not use the Fabriguard 303 https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00KN0UOEE/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Does Motoport make anything that isn't mesh? I didn't see anything on their site.

Oh yeah - the mesh is perfect for me but not recommended for anyone with milder summers and a colder riding season. The jacket actually keeps me cool just standing in it in the summer. It's like portable breezy shade. You would freeze in this stuff north of Texas or FL.

You want the stretch Kevlar. My hard riding Canadian buddy has lots of miles on his. He rode a circle around the 4 corners of the country in Motopor stretch Kevlar.

Wow I just found this thread and the timing is perfect as I had a fitting and ordered a jacket and pants two weeks ago.i ended up with a mesh jacket w liners and mesh/stretch overpants.
I live in so cal and wanted the coolest gear possible to ride in the heat. liners for the short cold/wet season here.about four weeks wait time but if everything fits I well be a happy camper.
thanks
jay  :great:

Hi,
        The problem is, the Motoport Mesh  KEVLAR.....

Is probably as cool or cooler than any other gear out there and.....

Gives as good or BETTER protection than any other gear!

That's pretty hard to beat!!! :great:
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” -Samuel Adams

"Oh bother!", said, Pooh, as the tripwire clicked!

Fights begin, fingerprints are took, days are lost, bail is made, court dates are ignored, cycle is repeated.
