Pretty awesome jacket! I was a bit suspicious of how good it really worked being it's just a light under gear jacket but it really does stop the wind! I was thinking of buying a heavy leather jacket to help stay warm but they were all quite pricy the value on this is definitely worth it
I bought this and a pair of Knox Trooper knee guards to wear under textile riding pants. They are comfortable on 400 mile days. While I haven't, and don't intend, to test them in a crash, the armor is rated by a standards authority and Knox was one of first companies doing this. Hence have some confidence they will help in a crash.
They are also unobtrusive.
Unlike about every other MC gear I have bought, would say order down a size. At 6'3 and 210 pounds XL fits but size chart indicated 2XL.
They could use a fly opening in front. Other than that, great.
The concept and execution are excellent; however, after trying the vest on twice (with and without the optional chest protector) the hem stitching on the right cuff started to unravel. Finish and durability are questionable at this point.
I really love these gloves. They are made for cooler weather, NOT the summer heat. They don't breathe well. I live in New Hampshire, so April and May in the spring, and September through November (weather permitting) I will be wearing these. But the features are very cool.
And the protection is second to none. But break it down. Paying $270 for a pair of gloves is asinine. These gloves should be more reasonably priced. I think nothing more than $180 would be fair. They are definitely eye catching though. You feel like a transformer while wearing them.
