  For all you ladies out there who are searching for a jacket to protect you in any weather, on any ride, we have found the jacket for you. The River Road Taos Womens Waterproof Jacket is constructed of a heavy-duty textile material that is not only waterproof but also breathable. The 3/4-length of this great ladies motorcycle jacket also gives you the extra coverage just where you want it.     Let me tell you about all the great features River Road has incorporated in this fantastic ladies motorcycle jacket. Starting with the protection aspect, they’ve built in CE rated armor in the shoulders & elbows plus included a removable, upgradable EVA foam back pad. Along with that, they’ve provided strategically placed reflective piping for additional visibility no matter what weather you may encounter or what time of day you’re out riding.       They’ve filled this ladies textile jacket with plenty of comfort components beginning with the removable, insulated, fully-sleeved liner which will keep you toasty if they weather turns nasty out. But if the weather is warm & sunny, just like we always hope for, then the ventilation placed throughout this jacket will keep you nice and cool. There’s two front shoulder intake vents, two rear vertical exhaust vents and two unique mid-arm length zipper vents to allow optimal cooling.     There’s plenty of other great features in the River Road Taos Womens Waterproof Jacket like the two way front zipper that is covered by a snap & velcro storm flap. Speaking of zippers, they are all high-quality waterproof zippers which help keep the rain out. And we know you girls need plenty of pockets to stash all the must-have’s while riding, so don’t worry there are several storage places. Two large chest storage pockets, two lower front pockets and a very large rear cargo pocket, which is great to store your gloves or maps, plus there’s more pockets inside!     To make sure you get a proper fit, especially if you encounter rain, there are many adjustment components. A suede-like lined collar with adjustable tab closure offers a comfortable, secure fit as well as the snap adjustments at the inner elbow which keeps the jacket from flapping in the wind. There are also velcro tabs at the cuffs, waist and hip area so you can snug the jacket around your body to keep the wind & water out.     This jacket would make a great addition to your ladies motorcycle gear collection. Plus there’s the River Road Taos Womens Waterproof Pants that attach to the jacket via an internal zipper that will keep you covered from head to toe. Don’t worry about your man, both of these items are available for him too…the River Road Taos Waterproof Jacket and the River Road Taos Waterproof Pants.
