Tell her she has to buy her own stuff. That will let you know if she is in it because she really likes it or not.

My girl ordered this jacket and it came in yesterday. I've got to say it's a VERY thin jacket. I just don't know if I trust this to protect her in a crash. It does have the usual elbow and shoulder protection, but everywhere else, it seems like it won't do much.

Does anyone have experience with mesh? Will it rip open in a crash? Just holding the material in my hands, I would guess that it wouldn't hold together at all. My girl said that when she took her MSF course (at a harley dealer), they showed them around the accessories dept, and they said a mesh jacket is made of material JUST as strong as leather. I don't buy it!

Someone help, i need to know if I should return this jacket!

edit: also, the little crappy foam back protector that comes with it sucks, and the pocket for the back protector is super tiny. looks like I'll have to buy a separate protector too.

This question was raised in the women's section, too. Ms. Diana said she wrecked in a mesh jacket and it held up just fine. I, personally, don't feel very protected in my mesh but I do feel the breeze and that's what I'm going for.
There are 3 basic types of jackets: leather, textile, and mesh. Each of them have their pros and cons.
Leather: very protective, blocks the wind nicely, pretty warm, heavy.
Textile: protective but not as good as leather, light weight.
Mesh: Great in the summer as it lets all the air through... that's about it.

I went down while wearing a "ballistic" polyester textile jacket a few years ago. This jacket was substantially stronger than the typical mesh. I slid for a short while over grass and gravel on my right arm. Interestingly, the jacket did not tear at all. However, my arm did get pretty torn up underneath the jacket. Since then, I only wear leather unless it's like 100 degrees out and I'm just taking a very short ride to the local 7-11 or something. IMO, mesh is really not adequate protection.

I kinda agree with you, Interceptor... most of motorcycling is about calculated risk (including choice of gear)....
