"Much has been written on this and many other sites about "The Quest for the Holy"…..err, sorry…."Perfect Jacket" – the one that does everything well, all the time. While we’d hate to preempt anything that Monty Python may come up with on this subject, we may have an answer to a topic that is dear to all our hearts? I live in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada; a location that is famous for its scenic beauty, outdoor lifestyle, twisty roads through stunning mountain and sea-scapes, militant unions, heart-attack-inducing property prices, the western world’s worst drivers….and its “temperate climate". But I grew up and spent a lot of time riding in Central Africa. There, the term “temperate climate" meant about 340 sunny days per year, fresh highveld air struggling to vary as much as 50 F in temperature between midsummer and midwinter, a total absence of snow, and warm rain that was only allowed to fall for 1-2 hours per day during a specific three months a year. Much like Camelot, really, but without the constant irritation of clanging armor and all those indecipherable Welsh accents The “temperate climate" outlined above does not describe Vancouver. Nor does it describe any other part of “Beautiful, Super Natural British Columbia". Seasons here are simple. There are Two. For 5-7 months (6-9 in a lousy year) it pisses with rain, is grey, miserable, depressing, and blessed with that damp, bone-chilling cold that can only be appreciated by living right on the beach of a Northern ocean. Add the occasional decent dump of snow and a north wind that can freeze the lips off a carbon-fibre duck decoy in under three nanoseconds, and you have Season One: Winter. Season Two, Summer, is a relative blessing. Especially if it doesn’t turn back into Season One - like this year. Temps soar from -10 Celsius (that’s about 14F at the current US exchange rate) to the mid-40s C – about 110F or so – inland and away from the water. As a year-round BC motorcyclist, then, good versatile gear is important to me. As a confirmed pauper with a proud Scottish heritage, so is not having to buy any more of it than absolutely necessary. And, after 43 years of riding in Africa, Europe, Britain, the Far East, the US and the Great White North, this Mercury textile unit is as close as I’ve come to finding that Holy Grail of Motorcycle Jackets".

What the Press has to say about the BMG Mercury Motorcycle Jacket: "Riding in the rain isn’t so Bad. Neither is riding in the cold, but riding in either condition wearing the wrong gear can be absolutely miserable. Thankfully the Mercury Jacket has been by my side to shield me from both elements. Designed in England, the folks know a thing or two about riding in cold and wet conditions. The Mercury jacket is made from heavy duty nylon with extra material in the likely impact zones and features a Teflon coating to resist dirt-- The Mercury’s long list of features includes Knox CE armor in the shoulders and elbows, and a 8-inch zipper along the bottom to attach a pair of riding pants. British Motorcycle Gear says the jacket is also waterproof, windproof and breathable. The twin full-length flaps protecting the front zipper ensure that no water or wind reach the rider’s chest, while reflective material on the shoulders and arms help you to bee seen at night. There is also a full-length removable liner to keep you warm on those cooler rides, and a whole slew of hook-and-loop straps and various buttons along the arm and chest area to ensure a correct fit. Normally I save my opinion about a product until the end, but this time I’m going to spoil the surprise early. I like this jacket.. A Lot…Unlike some other jackets in which the armor is only comfortable in the riding position, I can wear the Mercury jacket on or off the bike. It’s that comfortable. If you are looking for a quality jacket with all the amenities at a great price, look no further". Rider Magazine
