I spent a considerable amount of time checking out, I think, all adventure jackets including all videos before I pulled the trigger on this one. I wanted one jacket that could do everything! This jacket was the right choice for me. I'm 5' 9'' 185lbs, 44'' chest and 32'' waist. The XL fits perfect like a tailored suit while being able to move around. It feels light compared to other jackets with comparable protection and features. I live in Lake Tahoe NV and often ride 500mi loops thru the Black Rock desert and back. No problems with 100F sections the venting works great. I have only done cold nite rides so far but I can tell this jacket will handle the cold great. I'm looking forward to testing the jacket in the winter.. Super high quality! I am very happy with this jacket!!
