Great looking jacket. Motorcycle superstore does a good job at taking accurate photos, if matching up colors is your thing. I'm 5'11 167lbs with somewhat wide shoulders and I can usually wear a large no prob. But it fits kinda short on the torso (shorter than bike jackets are supposed to fit in IMO), and the sleeves were do-able. However, when paying 200+ for a jacket I want perfection!! So Im sending it back for an XL, along with that RC back protector which I got in a med. and it slid around in the jacket so ill figure out how to better fit them both. Besides that this jacket looks super durable and well made, ergonomically placed pockets and zippers too. Its nice n thick in a good way so air gets through it pretty well (minus the liner) but in the event of a fall I don't doubt that it would save my skin. With the liner, I assume it would be comfortable in temps ranging from 80-50 degree weather with just a tee under. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.

I'm 5'9" 210 lbs and have a larger chest. Reading the reviews I decided to go with a size larger than I may otherwise. The jacket fits very well and the quality seems to be very good as you would expect at this price point. Protection seems like to would be good as well. Ventilation was very good on a 85 deg day with no liner. The jacket looks great on top of all that. I would recommend this jacket to a friend.

Excellent jacket, I went with a size larger and that worked. I usually take an xl but read the reviews and took a 2xl and it fit fine so I would have to give the fit a lower score, the inner liner is great at keeping you warm on cool riding nights although there wont be a few for a while, air flows fine, not as much as full mesh but it’s cool.
