    Tourshell Jacket, Question For Owners?

    My wife is looking at purchasing a ladies Tourshell Jacket but we have one question.

    The fabric new jackets in the shop is stiff and not as flexible as with some jackets.

    For anyone that has a Tourshell Jacket, do they break in and get more flexible when they are worn for a while?

    Stiffness equals strength equals abrasion resistance, wouldn't you think?

    My wife really likes her tourshell suit.
    Only thing I had to do was trim the back pad.

    They do soften up a bit , but by nature are stiffer than the comfort shells were. You get used to it. As Kent says, the stiffness of material is there for a reason.

    Does she wear it in hot weather? If so, how is it with the liner out and the vents open?

    We have Airflow suits for the higher summer heat.
    But the venting in the tourshell is a lot better than my streetguard.

    Thanks

    She bought a GS Dry Suit, along with a Gerbing Jacket for the colder weather.
