Had this jacket for about a month and about 10 rides. Love it except for two minor things; the sleeve fastener (velcro strap) and no collar button/snap/strap (just open). Would like to see a short neck warmer built into the top of the liner. T hat aside, it is a great jacket; the liner and the separate waterproof layer is a good design (either or both may be utilized). the exterior jacket fabric is much softer than typical textile jackets, but the abrasion resistance at the sleeve and shoulder areas is much greater than average. Armor sungs down well with elastic/snap pulls in two places on the sleeves. Some extra padding stitched into the back is a little stiff and you can feel it through the jacket. Fit is true to sizing (L perfect for 6' 195lbs athletic shape). Nothing binding or flapping. Longish 'tail' extends well in the back. Venting is great with large vertical zippers at the front and in back. Pockets and zippers good. Zipper functions well. Look is good, although only two colors to choose from, either light or dark. I chose the black which has a few reflective accents not entirely evident in photos.
