Acerbis Ramsey Vented Jacket – Keeping All Things Cool!

The summer months are finally here, so therefore, it’s time to reach for that trusty airflow jacket again. My good old faithful Triumph airflow jacket was getting long-in-the-tooth and starting to look a bit tatty so it was time for a replacement.

Enter the Acerbis Ramsey Vented Jacket…

First of all, the Ramsey jacket fits really well in all areas, it doesn’t pinch under the armpits or feel tight around my waist at all, and the elbow/shoulder pads line up as they should, which at this price point, isn’t always a given (I have an Oxford airflow jacket which I bought last year which is the exact opposite). The styling of the Ramsey jacket has a sporty fit to it which I really like, as it compliments the overall look of my bike.

There are two smallish pockets on the outside of the jacket and one internal pocket which is big enough to hold a medium-sized phone or wallet.

The cuffs have a zip which enables you to slide the sleeves on over your gloves, and there’s also a velcro cuff adjustment so that you can fine-tune the fitment. Also on the bicep is another adjustment mechanism for fine-tuning the fit accordingly.

Safety-wise, the Ramsey jacket comes standard with CE-certified elbow and shoulder protectors, there’s a pocket for a back protector, however, this is sold separately.

Located on the front, sleeves and back of the jacket are reflective Acerbis logos and inserts which give the rider some added visibility when riding at night.

The outer is made from 100% water-repellent polyester (which is resistant to tearing and abrasion), there is a waterproof and breathable membrane available for the jacket, which zips together on the inside, however, this is sold separately. Personally, I just carry a rain suit with me on those rainy forecasted days.

Now let’s talk airflow, situated on the front, rear and sleeves of the jacket are huge vented mesh areas, which gives you plenty of ventilation on those hot days during the summer months—I can attest that the airflow of the Ramsey is superb!

The inner lining is a mesh fabric, adding to that all-important ventilation. What I particularly like about the Ramsay is the microfleece collar, it gives the jacket a premium feel around the neck area, which I thought was a really nice touch.

Overall, I am very happy with the Acerbis Ramsey Vented Jacket, it is a very lightweight jacket, fits me really well, is stylish and at a price point of R2200, I can understand why they are selling so well in South Africa.
