Boy oh boy,
I have been eyeing this jacket for some time. Trying to determine if it would be a good buy for safety reasons. I finally broke down and ordered it, and I must say...I am super excited!! I got it today and tried it on. The fit is like a glove in the sleeves. A little more roomy in the waist but who'd complain about that. I love the fact that the back protector that comes in it is CE rated, but is also flexible. Way better than the foam that comes in other jackets. So far, I am super happy that I bought it and the price was well worth it.
Love this jacket! However on the first trip I wore it on the velcro on the wrist strap separated from the rubber. Luckily I was close enough to a store. A few drops of gorilla glue and a chip clip for a clamp and I was back in business the next day without the strap flopping in the wind.
The feel overall is very soft and comfortable, even though it is mesh.
The water liner is breathable soft mesh lining on the inside that does not irritate the skin
I love the adjustments at the waste, they give a nice flattering cut alot of riding jackets lack this feature.
The one complaint I have is the backpad. I was rather surprised how pathetic it is considering the elbow and shoulder armour is substantial. The backpad is the same type of foam they pack meats on in the grocery store (thine steaks.. chicken breasts) I wish I was joking but I can easily rip this backpad. I have ordered a D30 I plan to cut it to fit and replace it..
I am 5"3 180lbs 36c with a big round backside.. the small plus fits beautifully... by far the best fitting MC jacket I have put on.
