I have been very happy with it, great jacket for the money, but I just noticed the front has fluffy "tufts", it is like the fibers are fraying.
I am guessing that as the jacket is buffeted by the wind the fibers are flexing and breaking. I only have a few hundred miles on this jacket. Is this normal?
Call New Enough and tell them whats going on - Joe Rocket ( makers of Power Trip ) had some issues of this exact same thing going on - I had a couple of customers that we got replacments for due to this going on - Shouldnt be a bog deal, they just had some bad material finishing or something for a run , the material shoudnt do this so they are replacing it , or at least they were last year - Although, yours is the first Black one that Ive heard them having an issue with - normally its the Blues that look like crap !
This causes a little fraying on my Joe Rocket, when the right (or is it left? one or the other) sleeve at the wrist/forearm comes in contact with the velcro on the waist/zipper tab. A little careful trimming with some scissors makes it look like new. Haven't had the problem in a while since I'm now conscious of the cause and am careful to not let the two get together.
+3 got a cortech that has Velcro on the elbow area that has connected with the waist area and frayed it a little but the rest of the jack seems fine. 2 years with the jacket i believe, bought it local.
