Dirt Rider Magazine gives Leatt GPX 5.5 Enduro Jacket a score of 90/100
“The durable construction and quality components will keep the GPX 5.5 Enduro a valuable part of your riding wardrobe for many winter seasons.”
Dirt Rider took a close look at the Leatt GPX 5.5 Enduro Moto Jacket and gave it an overall rating of 90/100.
“Riding jackets are a relatively long-term investment for the riding enthusiast. Cold weather is truly seasonal, and, unlike boots, an extra upper body layer isn’t required year-round. Winter jackets are typically tough and don’t usually come in contact with sharp or hot surfaces of the bike, allowing for a long life span. The odds are that what you purchase in 2017 will likely be something you can still sport well into next decade. With that in mind, it’s best to consider all of the factors that make up a great riding jacket now and in the years to come. Here’s what you should know before you drop a few hundred dollars,” they said.
Our 5.5 Enduro jacket is made from durable material so that it can handle those tougher conditions. To keep you cool, it has an internal hydration pocket with a bladder suspension system that prevents your bladder from sagging. The elbows are reinforced with Brush Guard, an ultra-thin flex film that is feather-light and greatly increases the scratch and abrasion resistance of the material.
Not only is it a tough jacket, but it looks good too. “Every time out with this jacket someone in the riding group made an unsolicited comment about how nice it looked,” Dirt Rider commented in their review.
It is also adjustable. “Utilizing a system of snaps and elastic fasteners, [it] easily expands or contracts to different body shapes, body armor, and of course neck braces. Ventilation is on point, with plenty of openings to let out the heat when you want to. What makes the GPX 5.5 Enduro a good cold-weather jacket makes it less suitable when the temperature rises. Although the sleeves zip off to form a legitimate vest, the jacket itself is not packable.”
“The durable construction and quality components will keep the GPX 5.5 Enduro a valuable part of your riding wardrobe for many winter seasons,” they concluded.
