Argon Fusion Jacket (product review)

With the hotter months approaching, the good folks at Argon Moto threw us their new Fusion jacket, to get our thoughts on one of their latest product offerings. It was perfect timing too, as at the time, it was actually warm.

That was before we hit what’s meant to be our wettest summer on record. We have had a few really good weeks of riding in warmer weather though, and the Fusion has proved its worth, with generous air flow.

Constructed of high grade cow hide leather, with tactically placed mesh across the chest, torso and back to allow maximum comfort in hotter conditions, it was certainly a God send when riding in higher ambient temperatures.

Put to the test in 34 degree heat, the reinforced mesh was genuinely appreciated and provided a strong relieving breeze across the chest and torso when riding. Like the Scorcher jacket we reviewed earlier in the year, the Fusion unit also has a removable lining.

It works well, is easy to attach via a zipper, and only takes a moment to take out and put back in. This liner ensures you can wear the Fusion jacket year round and can gain maximum return on your investment.

The Fusion jacket features a back protector and CE Level 2 armour for shoulder and elbow protection. In the case of our test jacket, it was finished in Black, with White reflective piping for added safety.

It can be had in Grey Lime, Stealth, Black/Red and the Black/White tested here. Available in sizes from Small to 3XL there is literally a size to fit just about every rider.

As for storage, there is a handy dry pouch on the inside of the jacket for keeping valuables and phones nice and dry, as well as another decent-sized internal pocket. In addition, there’s a dedicated phone pouch in the liner.

Externally, there are also two good sized pockets as well. Neoprene collar and cuffs are a nice touch for added comfort and a better fit, while all zippers are YKK and work seamlessly.

The elbow and shoulder pads actually fit where they are supposed to, too, which is very important. What we did like about the Fusion variant is the fit around the torso, as it’s a little more relaxed for riders carrying a little bit extra around the midriff.

Pricing for the Argon Fusion jacket starts at $439.95 and it’s available at all good motorcycle apparel stockists. As always, we suggest trying it on before buying, and making sure that this jacket suits your intended riding purpose.

Once again, Argon has come up trumps with a good quality product that meets the needs of Australian riders, at an affordable price. If you in the market for a new riding jacket, we recommend you checkout the Fusion jacket from Argon.

Pros – quality product; looks good; feels great.

Cons – making the choice between the Fusion, Scorcher and Descent versions is difficult.
