Good jacket overall - have only used it for a month so take my review with a grain of salt. The good: moves a ton of air, very light and relatively comfortable. The fit is.. a bit boxy - probably a bit too big in the belly area while it fits me perfectly in the shoulders. I am 6' and 185 lbs and I got the medium - it is the right size for me. I hoped for a bit more in terms of fit and finish, but it is up to par with the other tourmaster gear I bought in the past. Overall decently made but nothing to write home about. I like that the cuffs tighten up nicely, allowing the jacket to fit into gauntlet style gloves and prevent the sleeve from riding up in case you go down. The armour is OK - though it is hard to tighten up the sleeves enough to have it sit snug against my arms - I am not a super slim build, but you'd have to have forearms like Popeye to fill in the sleeve! IN terms of protection.. I kind of feel like by wearing this thin mesh of a jacket I am already pushing the limits of minimum acceptable protection. Compared to my 4 season nylon jacket, I definitely feel more vulnerable in this as it is very thin in spots. The liner feels reasonably made and fairly comfortable, but have not yet tested it in pouring rain. One other gripe is that the cell phone pocket is too small to fit any larger modern smart-phone.. forget about getting your iphone 6 plus in the jacket (minor frustration). Overall, decent value for the money - would I buy it again.. maybe. I would not say it is outstanding for the money.

Jacket with liner and a mid layer (needed until about 50): 37ish - 60 deg. After that, it's fine without it and the vents help after 80/85. Venting work well in higher temps though I do feel like I get pushed around more at highway speeds with them open but I don't have a windshield on my bike so ymmv. Jacket isn't waterproof, more like highly water resistant. I've been riding in steady downpours and after twenty minutes or so the inside starts to feel damp to the touch. In lighter rains it's held up alright though. The internal pockets are definitely nice. The right hand one holds my small tablet perfectly and the pockets carry through to the liner so you don't lose anything by having it in place. I like the more classical colors. I get complemented on it all the time. It fits me well and the fit and finish has been fine. The stitching etc. has held up. Overall, the jacket has been a great purchase for me. I did get it on sale though.

I’m a Tourmaster guy. I think the brand offers a fine quality product. I have one of their leather jackets which is now six years old and is still tough as nails so it was a no brainer for me to pursue their line of jackets for warm weather riding. I’m big on safety when it comes to running around on two wheels but I can’t don the heavy leather jacket anymore in 90 degree heat, I about pass out from heat stroke. I pursued Tourmaster’s line of warm weather jackets and decided to go with this Draft Air 3, jacket. I wasn’t disappointed. Last month I went on a 2000 mile round trip to and from the Great Smokey Mountains and each day was sunny, blistering hot and humid. Removal of the wind-resistant liner allowed this jacket to breathe which was very comfortable at cruising speeds. When you’re sitting in slow moving traffic or stopped on the highway due to construction sites, sure, you’re gonna feel the heat but you’re gonna feel the heat with nothing but a t-shirt on, too, right? There’s armor in all the right areas and in the medium sized jacket, the armor doesn’t feel intrusive nor did I feel any pressure points. The fit is great, I’m 5’11 and tip the scales at 170 and there are no problems with tight-fitting-here, loose-fitting-there areas. I originally went with a large, but returned it for a medium due to the large was a bit baggy on my frame. The customer service at the Superstore was first class all the way. No hassles, no attitudes when talking to one of their reps on the phone. I will definitely buy from them again. The jacket is nice, sure you can pound the internet and look for lower prices to spend on your riding gear but for me, I’d rather spend a little extra for something of quality that will endure. You can’t go wrong with this jacket for summer in the Midwest and for hotter than hell bike trips to the Great Smokey Mountains in late August.

This is a great value, for anyone wanting an all-around 3 season jacket; 3 seasons being fall, winter, spring. Zippers/vents/etc. well done. It's proven itself truly waterproof/breathable in the last month of riding in it, and durability seems quite acceptable. About me: 6' 210 Lbs., and I ride everyday- it's my only transport. So far, it's gotten me thru 29* light snow, up to 70* sunny, and I love this jacket.
