Women’s Sand 4 H2O Leather Jacket
The fourth time’s a charm with the Sand 4 H2O Jacket.
The Sand series has always been a line of gear capable of taking the rider around the world. This fourth iteration now does the job even better. Engineered with weight savings in mind and featuring a curated series of liners, the Sand 4 H2O Jacket wears easy without the fatigue of typically heavy ADV jackets. The foundation of the Sand 4 is its abrasion-resistant polyester ripstop shell. Close your eyes, and one would imagine this shell was designed solely for hot weather exploration. Three ventilation panels cover the front, twin zippered ports ventilate each arm, and the exhaust vent count at the rear is two. Matching the ventilated shell is ventilated Seeflex CE Level 2 impact armor at the shoulders and elbows. For a multi-season jacket, the hot weather tradeoffs are few. A back protector and split chest protector inserts are available upgrades (sold separately).
Talking layers, both the Hydratex mid-layer and inner thermal liner are fully removable. Add one or both liners to suit your conditions. Lose the shell and you have a waterproof, insulated jacket system for setting up basecamp; finishes each liner as a freestanding, destination garment. Adjustment straps at the arms and torso of the shell ensure an unencumbered range of motion and a secure fit regardless of your combination of liners. The jacket’s rear stash pocket is large enough to store both liners if needed. Fourth-generation improvements considered, the Sand 4 H2O is a tremendous three-jackets-in-one juggernaut.
There are very few instances where the sequel eclipses the original. (You can ask Bruce Willis.) The Sand 4 Jacket is one of these historic moments. Buy. Wear. Ride on.
