I have lowered my rating for this jacket, and the reason is, I emailed Alpha cycle gear about the jacket being useless in wet weather and have not had a reply. I don't know if they ever read the reviews, but as others have written it seems the ACG never answer, I want to know if their 10 year guarantee covers the jacket being NON WATERPROOF, but I don't expect an answer from this shitty company.
First the PROS, I bought the TAHOE jacket and I really like it when riding in dry weather, the vents keep me cool even in hot weather and the price is right. Now the CONS, after only wearing the jacket twice, on the third time wearing it I left my real waterproof jacket at home and only took the waterproof pants, I thought that as this new Tahoe jacket is claimed to have a waterproof membrane and is absolutely 100% waterproof as the info said, I would wear it, well I was very wrong in my thinking, when the rain hit I got drenched, I might as well been wrapped in a roll of toilet paper, that how useless the Tahoe jacket was regarding its waterproofness was. Its a shame as I really like this Tahoe jack as long as I don't have to wear it in wet weather. As a rider who has ridden in really bad wet rides in the UK, I will tell you to get a Belstaff or Barbour suit, I had one for years in the UK and barely got a drop of water get through it. The Tahoe that I bought is absolutely useless in real rain. Now I hope Alpha cycle gear read my comments and at least reply to me so we can sort the problems out. I hope this also helps those thinking about buying the Tahoe jacket.
How do I return the 3x for a 2x green and white over black. You sent a 3x. I've left 4 emails. No response.
If I get the correct jacket your rating hoes to a 5 star
This one of the best riding jackets I’ve owned. Comfortable, great fit, waterproof with armor. What more could you ask for? This jacket is nicer than other jackets I’ve tried that cost 6-8 times more. I immediately bought the pants and a whole set jacket and pants for my wife.
Bought size large that was too big. Ordered and received a Medium that fit fine. Have sent three emails wanting to return the Large and have had no response. Apparently the "free returns" advertised on the website are b.s.
