An Affordable Mesh Jacket Designed for Versatility

One of the things that makes the Speedy Super Net jacket so popular is its price point. At around $200, it’s very affordable compared to many premium mesh jackets, which can run $400 and up.

The jacket is constructed using 600D polyester in the solid panels and a punched mesh fabric that allows maximum airflow.

It has a neutral, straight cut that accommodates different body types and riding positions. For the price, you get a surprising number of features and adjustments that allow the jacket to fit snugly.

The outer shell uses an abrasion-resistant tenacity polyester fabric along with extensive mesh ventilation panels made of a breathable elastic fabric. The combination provides protection along with cooling airflow exactly where you need it most while riding.

Inside the jacket, the liner is composed almost entirely of mesh as well, except for a single small stash pocket. The mesh liner allows air to flow easily from the outer ventilation panels throughout the inside of the jacket unimpeded.

Generous Mesh Panels Provide Ventilation Where You Need It

The highlight of this jacket is clearly the copious amounts of ventilation mesh. Along the front torso, sleeves, back, and even collar, you’ll find mesh panels that take up the majority of the real estate.

Only around the elbows, shoulders, and waist is the solid fabric used to provide abrasion protection.

The extensive mesh coverage allows air to flow easily into and around your body as you ride. This keeps you cooler and drier than solid jackets, which can quickly become a sauna in hot, humid weather.

The mesh panels utilize an extremely porous yet durable elastic fabric that retains its shape while allowing maximum airflow.

The open weave doesn’t restrict movement, which is vital for riding comfort. Yet the mesh is still thick enough to prevent the wind from cutting through and retains warmth better than you might expect. If needed, you can even add wind-blocking and insulating liners for when temperatures drop.

Designed to Fit a Variety of Body Types

Unlike some jackets cut to fit a narrow range of body types, the Super Net has a neutral, straight cut that accommodates many different figures.

It’s roomy without appearing bulky and includes numerous adjustment points to fine-tune the fit. For example, the chest, waist, sleeves, and bottom hem can all be cinched in as needed to prevent flapping in the wind.

The jacket is available in sizes from XS to 4XL so that you can get just the right fit. Our recommendation is to order your normal size, as the Super Net runs true to size.

The model pictured is 5′ 8″, 140 lbs, with a 37″ chest and 36″ bust. She’s wearing a size medium, which provides full coverage without restricting movement.

The sleeve length is also sufficient to accommodate different arm lengths and riding positions. When in a tucked sportbike riding stance, the sleeves still overlap properly with glove liners and gauntlets.

For taller riders, the sleeves are long enough to prevent exposing forearms. Overall, the neutral cut and fit range help the Super Net jacket work for many riders.

Armor and Impact Protection Included

Unlike some low-cost jackets, the Super Net doesn’t skimp on safety features. It comes equipped with basic CE Level 1 armor in the elbows and shoulders.

The Step-In Armor system allows the protectors to be inserted into interior pockets for a snug fit. While more premium armor provides higher levels of impact protection, CE Level 1 is better than nothing.

The elbow and shoulder armor helps prevent bruising and abrasions in a fall while remaining flexible for comfort.

The sleeves also have Velcro brand adjusters to keep the armor situated correctly as you ride. One missing item is that a back protector is not included.

However, the jacket has a pocket arrangement that allows you to install an aftermarket CE Level 1 or 2 protector for full upper-body protection.

Specifically, the Super Net comes equipped with these protectors:

  • Force-Tech removable elbow armor CE Level 1
  • Warrior Protectors shoulder armor CE Level 1

So, in summary, the jacket provides basic impact protection for your joints and shoulders with the option to upgrade as desired. Considering the low price, this armor inclusion is a major plus.

Designed Specifically for Warm Weather Riding

When choosing a mesh jacket, you want substantial ventilation coverage matched to the areas of your body that get hot and sweaty while riding. The Speedy Super Net targets airflow to the right zones to keep you cool in warm weather.

Along the chest and back, generous mesh panels allow air to flow into and circulate within the jacket. The lightweight mesh collar allows heat to escape from your neck area.

Mesh sleeves prevent the notorious “sweaty arm syndrome” by allowing the breeze to flow from your shoulders down to your wrists.

The inner liner is also fully mesh, apart from a single pocket, to avoid trapping hot air inside. Altogether, the Super Net is thoughtfully designed for warm weather riding with cooling mesh placed exactly where you need it.

Extra Features Enhance Functionality

A few other handy features improve the functionality of this jacket:

  • Zippered waist adjustment provides a snug fit
  • Zippered side entry pockets are roomy enough for essentials
  • Reflective print on the back enhances nighttime visibility
  • Interior pocket and belt loops allow you to add layers
  • The long zipper gusset facilitates getting the jacket on and off
  • Dropped back hem provides added coverage while riding

The waist cinch and gusseted zipper make it easier to take the jacket on and off while maintaining a good fit.

The pockets and loops allow you to bring extra gear like wallets, phones, liners, etc. Overall, these useful features improve the experience of wearing and using the Super Net jacket.

Ideal for Hot and Humid Riding Conditions

If you regularly ride in hot, humid conditions, the Speedy Super Net jacket deserves a spot on your shortlist. The mesh fabric and paneling provide airflow exactly where you need it to stay cool.

The straight cut and size range accommodates different figures for a comfortable fit. And it includes basic armor for impact protection.

Overall, for a reasonable price, the Super Net delivers exceptional cooling performance.

Mesh jackets require some tradeoff between protection and breathability. With its extensive mesh coverage, the Super Net skews decisively toward airflow and cooling over abrasion resistance.

For riders who value staying cool and dry above all else, it delivers on that promise. Considering the price, fit, features, and cooling performance – the Speedy Super Net is one of the best mesh jackets available.
