Overall this is a very nice jacket that offers great riding protection. I think it is quite sharp looking and like it very much. I am 5'10" and weigh 160lbs. I ordered the Large size and it fits but is just a bit tight. It is not so tight that it is uncomfortable and the fit won't interfere with my riding ability. The sleeve length is perfect.
I like the fact it has a removable liner. I found it quite easy to take it off and put it back on again. One thing I dont' like is that the main zipper has the tab you hold onto on the left side but it's not really a big deal. The armor, which is included, is easy to access via zippered enclosures.
It has 2 large zippered pockets that are accessed on the outside of the jacket. My phone, which measures 6"x3" fits snuggly into a pocket but I find it quite difficult to access the pocket while wearing the jacket; hard to reach.
There are several ways to adjust the fit with zippers and velcro for the waist and wrists, there are also zippers for further waist adjustment, There are two elastic straps coupled with metal snaps for adjust the tightness of the sleeves.
I think that this jacket is very nice for the price but it really can't compare with a real racing jacket made of leather costing hundreds of dollars more. I would recommend it for normal riding on city streets and is a good value for the price.
4.0 out of 5 starsNot only for motorcycle riders...

I got this because I've recently gotten into electric scooters, and frankly some of them are insanely fast and not completely stable and you just stand on them. So, this jacket struck me as a really good idea.
My friends have said it "looks tough" and I was asked "is it armored?" Oh yes, it is. Maybe not to a full pro-level kevlar / carbon fiber armored, but for a guy that rides electric scooters? Absolutely, astoundingly perfect. This provides me with just the right amount of protection for my risk level / speed level. Electric scooter guys and gals - no way road rash is gettin through this.
I'm around 5' 9" and roughly 160 lbs, and large fit me perfectly. Nearly tailor-fit. The only complaint (and reason for the -1 star) is the pockets are SO hard to access. It's like, yeah, sweet jacket but you look like a goon trying to fish something out of the pockets. And it could use a LITTLE more wind protection at the zipper. There's a flap, but it could be longer, or it could use a zipper over-flap.
It's nearly perfect (minus the pocket access thing) for me. The styling kills, everyone loves it, it's built like a tank and should take quite a scrape before it lets the road meet your skin, the price isn't out of this world, it fits well, is fairly warm (or not if you take out the liner which is awesome btw but you lose a layer of padding), is very adjustable with all the straps, and makes you look like you ride superbikes for a living. I love everything BUT the pocket access. I definitely recommend this jacket. I now wear it whenever I'm out on my scooter, lol.
Perhaps they could release a matching backpack for this? Maybe for both jackets? Capable of holding a full size helmet? With "grab handles" for the passenger? I'd buy it.
4.0 out of 5 starsStarter jacket for fall, cool mornings

This jacket is good for those who want a warm motorcycle jacket for chilly morning commutes and rides in fall weather. The length is good with appropriate rear tail and armor pocket. The sizing seems to run a bit small, so a size up is likely prudent when ordering. I like that the elbow and shoulder armor "lands" in good position while wearing the jacket (kind of important in a slide). The included armor is CE level 1 (fine at this price point). This jacket lacks the venting options available in its higher priced cousins, but that's OK. I do wish there was a breast pocket for phones, wallets, etc. Also, the placement of the hand warmer pockets is a bit awkward and they are a bit small. It is pretty warm with the liner zipped in and makes a decent shell with the liner out given its breathable layer.
