Just got this in the mail and tried it on around the house so I will update as I have more experience but this site is painfully without reviews, so... First impression is great! It has all the bells and whistles you would want! AND they seem quality!! Very pumped. The fit is very fitted, for lack of a better word, but the shoulders, arm length and torso are spot on, and break in is always expected in protective leather jackets, but for now I feel a bit like C3PO. For reference, I'm 5'8", 148 lbs, 35" chest, 30" waist, 40" hips. I got the size 40, so you'll see I just followed the size chart. The jacket is heavy, which I personally look for in something that should protect me from the road. As for layering, however, a fitted long sleeve will have to suffice until the arms loosen, so glad it doesn't have venting... Pockets. This is important for me! The outside pockets are surprisingly roomy. The little top pocket by the neck is probably just going to have chap stick but the outside pockets can accommodate quite a bit. Mine will probably have proof of insurance and title. The inside pocket is awkward. The opening is up against your breast, and the C3PO arms make it a bit tough to get anything in it, especially to the depths... Up side, however, is that it's big! I listen to music and directions through ear buds on longer trips and I will definitely have room for my iPhone 6 and Skull Candys in this pocket. Yay! One last thing-the length. I got this jacket because I have a Roland Sands Maven, and it is beautiful, but it is NOT for cooler weather. The perforation and length had me cold in glacier in early August, even with 2 long layers beneath it. This jacket is to be my cold weather jacket, so I was glad of the lack of venting, but hoped it would be long enough to cover my lower back on my long torso!! So far so good, and I'm pumped for the pants connecting zipper option and belt loops! All in all, I'm REALLY HAPPY!! (And as you probably noticed, I'm a bit picky!!)

Pleased with the jacket. Flows air very well. Quality is great. XL fit is just snug enough so I can use another liner I have (I'm 6' & 205 with 44 chest). I hate the left side zipper, but getting used to it. Pockets are a little to far back, and had to buy some zipper pulls for the tiny zipper flaps. Also the collar rubs my Adam's apple when open (not padded). Overall great jacket for the money!

Bought this for my rev'it airway2 jacket and it fits as expected. Going from no back protector to this is obviously a noticeable change, as it decreases airflow and it is less comfortable than having no back plate; however, it has holes to provide some airflow while still protecting your spine. It's also not rock hard, so it is comfortable even when wearing a backpack on your back. all in all, good product.

I got the 2x large size and my waist is only a 34. They are big but still fit nicely when riding and will go over any pants I have on comfortably. The liner is extreme, I will only use if riding below 50 degrees F. Knee and hip pads are sufficient and the mesh without the liner is great for warm days. I have been wearing these every work day for about 5 months and I have no complaints.

I only used it in one rain storm and it worked. That's all I care about. The velcro that folds over the zipper is a bit of a pain to deal with, but I don't plan to be using it every day. I like how lightweight and compact it is which makes it easy to keep with the bike for those unexpected rainstorms when you are on your bike and need to get somewhere. I am happy with the product. My ratings are average for fit, finish, durability and features, but the most important thing for which I give it a 5 star rating is the cost benefit. Perhaps if you needed something for a lot of time of use, you might want to get something more durable with a perfect fit. This product is a bit loose on me, but I like that because it will allow me to use it if I ever have lots of clothes or a snow suit on underneath it.

I've had these boots for about a year and wear them frequently even on days I'm not riding. I like everything about the boots, except the stitching is starting to fail. The trim along the sole is falling off and some of the stitching on above the toe has torn. For $300, they should last for years not months.
