I tried on the AA in stores a while back and I loved it. I thought it was so much nicer in feel and fit than some of the other tech fabric jackets.
The guy who leased my gelding last year had one and if you really zoomed in on a photo you could see the mesh but it wasn’t noticeable in person at all or on a photo that you didn’t zoom in for an ultra close up of. Even in the zoomed photo I thought it looked fine, you could just see it was mesh. I think if you wore one of those shirts with dark sleeves and a white “bib” you wouldn’t notice at all.
Question for those with the AA coats though: if they come in contact with Velcro (thinking accidentally with a Velcro collar, horse boots, etc) does the fabric pull badly? That was my only concern.
The colors are gorgeous in person! One of the reasons I don’t own one yet is I couldn’t pick!
