Loving the White AStars Sniper Jacket

This jacket makes for a very fine daily commuter. It's bright and people see it. I love how it looks, even as the white material continues to collect dirt and bugs. That's what dry cleaners are for, right?

It's comfortable and easy to adjust when you change out your gloves or wear different layers underneath. While I was in the hot weather back east, I would have benefited from some vents.

The Sniper offers moderate protection in all the right places. If I was going on a cross country ride or knew I was really going to push it, I might choose something with a little more thickness in the armour. This is a mild weather jacket.

Nothing has torn, broken or come apart. It's durable. I've taken it by train, plane, automobile and bike. It's still holding up and feeling great.
