    These arrived in the mail today. I believe they are 2nd generation Racing Jackets - pearl white with transitions lenses. They are in perfect condition.

    Always loved this frame. Nice pick-up.

    It has a Water Jacket Nose piece. FYI

    I remember George Hincapie riding in the TdF wearing these and I've liked them since then. This is my first pair of the original Racing Jackets.

    How does the Water Jacket nose piece vary from the other?

    That nose piece is for either the Water Jacket or the Pro Racing Jacket, which this one is. Congrats, its a killer pick up.

    I did not know the PRJ had the same nose piece as the Water Jacket.
    Cool.
    I like the full nose piece myself anyway.

    I think I like it more, simply for its place in cycling history. I might have to let this one stay as a disply piece.

    The Racing Jacket just had the 2 nose bombs. The Pro added the one piece for better grip and shock absorption. The Water Jacket added the strap to keep them on when you wiped out in the surf.
