Great Fit and Fabric!

The fit of this jacket is great, as it's more form fitted then some of the other brands that simply hang loose and flap when you ride.I needed a mesh jacket that offered a fully waterproof liner for the afternoon down pours that we get in Florida. The styling is clean and the mesh is not abrasive like some other jackets too, as I run a tee under this jacket. I like the waist and wrist adjustments plus it has a softer fabric around the collar, so doesn't rub on my neck. It's a fair price at $150 given the waterproof liner. I'd definitely recommend this jacket in areas where you get some rain throughout the day. Hope that helps.

Sweet Jacket

This is my everyday riding jacket and I love it. Flows is very good and fit is perfect. Removable rain liner and removable armor make it a breeze to wash if needed. All pockets are waterproof.

Love it!

This is my first jacket, and so far it's been great. I am tall and lanky, 6 feet tall and 150 pounds. I was worried about finding a jacket that fit well. I got a medium and it fits great. The arms are perfect length, with the jacket still being snug around my waist. The ventilation also works really well, plenty of airflow. I have only had the jacket for about a month, so I can't really comment on the durability. So far it's fine. The zip out shell works great for the cooler months. I would recommend this jacket to anyone, anywhere in the country.

Great Jacket

This jacket is great. I took the liner out of mine because of the humidity in my area so it really held in the heat. With the liner out it really breathes well and it has some padding in the back, shoulders, and arms. Well worth the money.

Awesome Jacket

Great jacket, it fits great and has an awesome look. It has an easy-to-remove liner that is color coded so you always put it back in correctly. Worth the price.

Perfect hot weather jacket

At 6'4", 210 pounds, the XL fits perfectly. I'm in the Tampa area and have found this to be a great hot weather jacket with good airflow, but yet has more structure than some other mesh jackets I have tried on. The zipper flap at top, and belt loop retainer snap at bottom are nice additions. The liner is cheap but I never use it anyhow.

You stay cool...

Perfect for sunny riding above 70%. Most of the summer I've been riding around in my black Shift jacket. It has been murder with no ventilation. I bought the white Shift Backdraft and--what a difference. The air flows through it very freely. It almost feels like I'm riding sleeveless at times. The construction is good throughout. Fit is good, comfortable on longer rides. My only gripe is that some of the material on the sleeves reminds me of of the netting of a cheap basketball jersey. It is obviously much better quality. It just has a similar look which is kind of cheesy. I got compliments on it though, so maybe it's just me.

Good Summer Jacket

Jacket looks really sharp and fits pretty well. I followed the sizing chart and got a medium (5'10”, 150 lbs), and the sleeves were way too long and the jacket bunched up a lot in the mid section when on the bike. Got a small, and the fit was right on. The jacket vents really well, so even on hot days it is really comfortable to wear. Also no problem with the armor shifting out of place. Overall, great jacket and not a bad price.

Great Jacket

I'm 6'4", 160 lbs lean build and the Medium fits me perfectly, as suggested by another reviewer on this site or some other. Definitely buy a size smaller. The length on the arms is still long enough for me even as tall as I am, while still fitting great in the chest.

Nice fit

I am 6'4" 190 pounds and was concerned about the length of an XL but am pleasantly surprised at how well it fits me. I have 35" arms and the sleeve length is more than adequate. The body is long enough - it falls below my waist. The extra length in the back is nice too. Overall, I would say that the jacket has a nice athletic fit. I have used it only once but I am confident that I made a good decision.

Great Ventilation

I used to dread puting on my leather jacket on hot days, but with this jacket it feels like I'm still just wearing a T-shirt. The armor feels pretty stout and the white increases visibility. It's exactly what I was looking for in a mesh jacket
