A Jacket to Last a Lifetime: Search and State’s S1-J Riding Jacket

A Jacket to Last a Lifetime: Search and State’s S1-J Riding Jacket

My old S1-J (from 2015!) was a staple for road and dirt road riding back in the day. I used that jacket on just about every ride, tossing it in a handlebar or hip bag, any time I pedaled into the unknown microclimates of the coastal California mountain ranges and beyond. Then, one day at a bike event, it went missing. It’s been a while since Search and State have made the S1-J but it’s back this year after a two-year hiatus. Take it from someone who let one get away, don’t miss this opportunity if you’re shopping for a new jacket…
