Does anyone have one? After being quite anti-mesh for quite sometime, I tried on a few mesh coats yesterday and am hooked. I’ll be shopping the small-business Saturday sales next week. But this has opened the door to a shad that I could actually wear in the dead of summer and not die in. Is the AA Motion Lite shadbelly hunter-appropriate? It seems to be marketed as a dressage coat and has interchangeable tail weights (I assume this means weight can be completely removed?), but is advertised in some places as a “multi-discipline” jacket. I have not seen it up close so I am unable to judge for myself.
For those who may suggest the RJ mesh shad, their soft-shell shad fit me horribly in the shoulder/chest area. So unless their mesh shads fit way better than the soft-shell, those likely won’t work. Again, no shads locally to try on so I am basing things strictly off of the standard coats that are in stock at my only local tack shop.
