Whether you’re riding in the summer sun or winter chill, Schampa’s FaceFit face mask is a great way to make sure your face stays correct in any weather. Why is it better than a $3 bandanna, you say? Well, Schampa’s masks feature an adjustable FaceFit system that offers a contoured fit that will not slip while riding. How does it do this? The FaceFit system has an internal wire that bends to fit over each rider’s individual nose and cheeks. It also attaches comfortably in the back via Velcro instead of having to tie a big knot into it. I rode out to Laughlin wearing this in 100-plus-degree weather and sub-40-degree with scattered showers on the way back. This face mask felt comfortable, breathed well, and offered the coverage I was looking for the whole time.
Let’s face it: There are a ton of black leather motorcycle jackets out there. Some are cheaper and some more mare expensive than this one, but not too many of them possess what the Fahrenheit has. First off, this jacket has a ton of features without it looking like it does. It is perforated, as you can see, so it flows a ton of air when the temperature heats up. But the Fahrenheit is made from proprietary leather known as “KoolTeK” that stays 20 degrees cooler in the sun than other leather materials. The jacket also has a full-sleeve, windproof zip-out liner for when things get breezy. It also comes complete with a thermal-regulating liner that’s moisture- and odor-wicking, making this a great “three-season” jacket. For safety’s sake the Fahrenheit has D3O armor and an ample amount of discreet reflective trim, as well as beefy YKK-brand zippers.
I have been riding with this jacket for a few months now, and I can say that although I am wearing a garment that has everything safety-wise and comfort-wise I should be riding with, it doesn’t have the look and feel of one. It’s comfortable, breathable, and actually looks good. And I like that a lot.
