Default Fxr gear

I'm looking at a fxr mission jacket. What's everyone's take on fxr gear quality? Waterproofing? Thanks

Mixed reviews. Everyone on film or the interweb I've seen says it's the best. Only person I've talked face to face that had a full setup said it was terrible. I've never worn any of it except some boots about 4 years ago and they leaked in the truck on the way to the mountain...(not really, but they were terrible out in the snow)

I have an FXR jacket and the quality isn't there with Motorfist, Klim and TOBE but the price is.


Didn't hold together that long and started to fray apart on the inside and a few places on the outside. I was warm and dry before it started shredding apart though

I bought an XC Renegade jacket because that is the only one that would fit the length of my arms. I have used it 2 winters now with no complaints. It comes with the zip in liner which would be way too warm for my uses, but with the liner out, the shell is cut just right for me.

I upgraded my mid-layer for this season so it will be interesting to see if I can get the right combination of insulation and breath-ability by layering.

We got a chance to run the Mission stuff last year. Most people that have influences from last year are sponsored riders.

With that said, we were very happy with the gear. It is not something that you can compare to a 1000 dollar setup from other brands, but for the guys wanting a great jacket at a great price, with a ton of features and color options. It is a great option. There is a three year warranty on the product, and the HydrXPro waterproofing worked well for us. Worst case scenario you have three years to get it to leak and they will still replace it, but our money is on the fact that it won't leak.
