Scala Gears Marvel jacket first impressions review
- Scala Gears Marvel jacket debuted with aggressive pricing
- Minimalist yet, best in class styling and the famed CE Level 2 armors not just on the the shoulders or elbows but on the back protector too!
- Adding to the slim fit quotient are the integrated liners to keep the rain and cold drafts out.
- This Tex-Mesh mix allows for a decent level of ventilation on the Scala Gears Marvel jacket.
- Specially, where one may have to change from thermal to rain and take them off.
- Phone Battery down, Got a powerbank? excellent, keep the phone in the top pocket. The powerbank is neatly tucked away in the thermal liner or the jacket.
*please do be mindful that the weight of the powerbank may weigh you down, should you get uneasy pull over and keep it in your luggage
The Quick bits about the Scala Gears Marvel jacket:
- Wait but aren’t most jackets bulky and need a skill level of a OCD infected packer? In case of…
- Well they might, however in case of the Scala Marvel it neatly fitted into the Dirtsack Shellsack . It already had a dual liner two piece raincoat, a Git2PRO ACTION CAMERA along with its folding monopod already inside.
- HOW?? Quite simple, the CE LEVEL2 armours are a soft gel like. This gives the jacket the feel of a hoodie or a thick sweater rather than that of a riding jacket.
- What else? Folding cuffs are zipper fastened on the diameter. velcro-straps seal up the circumference. Want to sit down for a meal and its too cold remove the jacket? Simply fold the cuffs and its Bon appetit!
- Last and not the.. ? Yet it has a double lined zipper that should keep the rains out from the periphery of your smartphone or any other valuables tucked away in the chest pocket
Scala Gears Marvel jacket – Long Term Review
- The Scala is as easy as the RR Gear Raptor to maintain. The armors on the back and shoulders are easily removable – Simply wash and wear.
- unlike most other jackets this one has more white accents. White as a color is a toughie to keep as is. Certain shampoos and Colgate toothpaste have come to the rescue while keep it at its whitest best.
- The CE Level 2 armors as soft and gel like which make it easy to pack in to any backpack, in this case the Dirtsack Shellsack
- The Marvel makes an awesome summertime jacket while keeping the rider protected.
- The collar build allows you wear the jacket weeks without washing it.
- The inner cuffs have color coded buttons to match the color of the elastics on the liners
- The rain liner provides adequate protection from rain however a conjoined lined could looked forward to.
- Best in class pockets, not only on the jacket but also on the liners as well.
- Daily use has had no effects on the color, even on the white linings.
- The reflective bits are eroded, however as per the wear and tear it is certainly acceptable.
- From scooter to superbike this is a one style fits all two wheelers.
- The Velcro on folding cuffs however have lost some bit of grip.
- The runner on the main zip broke after about 8 months and was easily replaced
- The zippers on cuffs are still in shape sans a bit of paint

Doesn’t all level 2 armor at 6000 bucks sounds too good to be true? What company is the armor from?
Hey Akhil, how are you it’s a pleasant surprise to hear from you!
We weren’t given a name of the source however we do understand that the armour carries a certificate of the standards claimed and that makes the cut for us. You too have been in a similar business, you know how it works..
