Bilt Paddock Mesh Jacket review

Well for the money I would have to say this is a great jacket. I have had mine for 6+ months and it is holding up quite well. I just washed it for the first time and everything held up fine. I did switch out the inferior back foam pad for CE approved amour. I have worn a gore-tex jacket over it in rain with great success with staying dry.

The good:
Inexpensive gear
Doesn't look half bad if you don't mind the corporate patches
3XL for me 6'4" 250lbs fits great
Looks like it is reinforce were it should be
Not super heavy or bulky

The bad:
I expected more air flow for a mesh jacket though I don't have anything to compare it to. so if you aren't moving your hot in warm weather.
Cheap o foam pad for back (but I am glad the insert was there)
