Fieldsheer Titanium Air Jacket
My first mesh jacket was a Fieldsheer Titanium Air. It is mesh all over, with armor and nylon skid pads. This jacket was around $100 (maybe a little less). I liked it, and I only upgraded because I wanted a 3 season jacket with a zip out liner, more leather, and more armor. I replaced this with a Fieldsheer Mach 2.
My main cool weather jacket (and my first jacket purchase) is a Tour Master Cortech 3/4.
Because Fieldsheer's web site has only 2 images per jacket, I decide to put a TON of photos online. If this helps, or if you have suggestions, please drop me a note.
