I was not about to bring leather to Texas in July, so chose this jacket mostly based on reviews here. Fits great, I'm told it looks great, and with the liner out, I was shocked at how comfortable I was in temperatures in the 90s. I felt like I could move in it with no problems.
One reviewer said white was a bad choice because of bugs, etc., so I got black. That wasn't the best choice either, since the only time I felt overheated was when the sun got to be the most brutal and when we stopped. (The heat is a fine trade off considering the protection in this jacket.) I'm pretty sure a lighter color would have conducted less heat, but there is that bit about white showing every smudge and smear.
I'd definitely recommend this jacket, and color choice would depend on how intense the sun is where you ride.
I was looking for something more light weight then my leather jacket. This jacket provides more flexibility with two separate zip in components.
I'm typically a size 10-12 and the L fits really nicely. The elbow, shoulder and back protective pieces take a little getting used to, but overall I'm happy with the jacket. I do wish it had a few more reflective features for night riding.
Was looking for a mesh jacket with protection for hot summer days. The jacket is comfortable and well ventilated. Nice fit, tried a lot of jackets and they were not flattering! Clean lines and no fussy details. Priced right so it doesn't break the bank. Extremely happy with my purchase!
Love love love this jacket ... Exactly what I was looking for stylish with all the padding and not to mention the purple matches my bike . The only thing that's missing is the pants that go with it . They are on backorder sure hope I get them !!
