Testimonials for Cortech
Hi, I bought this jacket a year ago and this year I had a crash. This jacket literally saved my skin. I sustained some "rug burns" from inside the jacket but nothing serious. As hard as I hit the pavement I should have broken my elbow but your jacket saved me. It sustained some rips in the denim but nothing else.
I received a Cortech Coaster II Jacket for Christmas and it's just a wonderful jacket. I love it. Well after going for a ride a couple of months back, I lowsided my bike and sustained some damage to my jacket. The jacket gave me GREAT protection, and I only came away with a slight scrape on my side. My poor bike was totalled but I came away just fine.
A few weeks ago I took a ride of a lifetime.....or more accurately stated "a slide of a lifetime". I was riding my Harley Sporster on a beautiful crisp fall day in Oregon, when I hit a depressionin the road and bottomed out. Traveling at a speed of 50 mph, it was like hitting a brick wall.
The bike and I flew up in the air, then came down hard hitting the pavement, and then proceeded to slide 224' into the oncoming traffic lane where it came to a halt. I ended up just short of it in a ditch surrounded by boulders and rocks laying there unconscious. The only thing I remember after the first few seconds was the sound of metal sliding on the asphalt.
Had I not been wearing my Cortech jacket there is no doubt in my mind that I would have incurredserious injuries to my upper body. The armor did an impressive job protecting my arms and my back.
After a two hour ambulance ride to the hospital, the doctors in emergency could not believe whathad occurred, and that I did not receive one broken bone or internal injuries after viewing ultra sounds,and cat scans.
The only harm to the jacket after sliding that distance was a small tear in the right shoulder seam. On the other hand, my bike was totaled. Cortech has done an impressive job standing behind their product. I have been very pleased with their service and attention to the repairs/replacement.
I have two Cortech jackets, one for summer and one for fall and winter riding. I would not think ofgetting on my bike without wearing my jacket. To me it is as important as my helmet. We havesigns posted as you enter Oregon "Helmets are Required". They should add to the sign......"Helmets and Cortech Jackets Required".

I recently purchased a Cortech GX Sport jacket and just wanted to make comment on it. What a great jacket! I did a lot of research prior to my purchase and feel the Cortech line is definitely the most bang for the buck, and offers excellent protection. There are a lot of textile jackets on the market, so it was hard to make a decision. In the end, I wanted a jacket for year round riding (down to 30 degrees) and the GX sport will definitely have me covered. The fit was spot on according to your sizing charts. Again, thanks for a great product!
