Looks great out of the box. Very heavy. Breathes well, and blocks wind nicely.

This jacket ROCKS!!! I was a little unsure about the size based on some of the other reviews. So I ordered a XL and a L. Went back and forth but ended up keeping the L and returned the XL. Like any jacket when you first put it on and it is in the mid 90's... it is uncomfortable to be wearing anything. But this one is super lightweight and as soon as you start rolling it feels like you are in just a t-shirt. I had found another mesh jacket at a local dealer that I wasn't really sold on. But it was OK and I was leaving for a cross country road trip in a few days so I decided to go ahead and get it. (for 150 bucks how could you go wrong?) It worked and I was glad I had it for the trip. But then I found this one. As one other review said... I would expect this jacket to cost a lot more after seeing the quality. Again as others have said my only negative so far is that I wish it was available in some other colors.

I have a FLEX II in black that was getting too hot for Northern CA riding, so I bought the FLEX III on sale-outstanding deal (in White/Silver). The jacket works for me even at 100 degrees- the temperature drop was tremendous versus having the black jacket which I will now only use in the fall/winter/early. The good news is that all of the liners appear to be interchangeable with my Flex 2 jacket. For the money, I think this jacket (on sale) is the best for the buck out there, and I have very few complaints. Some people complain that it is too complicated to put together in regards to liners ...really? I guess, but for those that wrench on their bikes, it is simple (no offense JMO).

It is a nice looking jacket and seems durable. It comes with a nice warrantee also. I am enjoying my jacket and have worn it in temps from 55 to 90 so far. As you would guess, with temps over 85 you better be moving or you are hot. Under 60 and you need the zip in wind breaker and at least a long sleeve shirt to keep warm. Being from MI it can be 60 in the a.m. and 90 coming home at night. So I am taking the liner in and out, sometimes not zipping it in. I am 6'2" 190 lbs. and needed the XL. It fits well, the large was to small. An option I would like is another zip out liner that has more insulation to extend the jackets use in the cold.

I'm 61 235 and my belly is not flat and this jacket fits really good in a 2x, Most jackets I have to get a 3x but this one fits great and 70 degrees to 55 its perfect. So if this is what u need get it,cant go wrong with the price either.

I live on the North Coast of California and I needed a jacket that would be versatile to go from a cold and wet conditions to hot and sunny all within the same day. This jacket is perfect. Very Impressed with the quality of the jacket and the versatility. Have worn it mainly on sunny and warm days and have stripped it down to the mesh jacket without the insulation but with the armor in. I've been impressed with how much air comes through the jacket. Was incredibly comfortable the whole time. I purchased the white/black/orange combination primarily for visibility enhancement. Those colors work really well both for a very foggy day and a sunny day.
