I wanted a jacket providing warmth/ventilation, visibility and serious armor all at once. This one delivers. I am 6'4", 205lbs, and the size 46 fits really well. Very long sleeves, which is a relief for tall people like me. Undoubtedly a very high quality construction all around, you get what what you pay for.
The vents work very well. When they are open, it creates a very noticeable increase in air resistance, but you can't have your cake and eat it, too. The liner is somewhat bulky and rigid, yet easy to remove. My only issues are that the back armor doesn't go low enough (I am complementing with a hard-paneled lower spine protector belt worn underneath), and the collar is not soft enough to the neck.
Yes, I recommend this product.
