Any One Have A First Hand Review On The Montana Jacket From British Cycle Gear?
I realize I'm a couple of months late in replying to your question, but I just took delivery of my Montana jacket from BMG about two weeks ago. I can't say enough good things about it.
I was immediately struck by how heavy it is. Very solid, and the knox shoulder/elbow armor is a nice touch. The leather is a great black (with a touch of brown depending upon the light) and feels like butter.
I have had it out on a couple of runs in 55-60 degree F weather here in Minneapolis. Defintely keeps me warm (without the liner). Not sure if it will be too warm once summer hits, but it seems well ventilated. And you absolutely can't argue with the style (fits my Bonnie perfectly).
Not cheap in terms of $$, but certainly not cheap in terms of quality, either. I feel like there is no doubt that I got my money's worth. And I was impressed by BMG's customer service.
I did order mine one size up (ordered a 44; my suit jacket size is 42) and I'm glad I did.
Hope that helps...
