Yesterday I´ve received my new Ignition 2 jacket in black/anthracite (matches my engine covers on my kawa Z750s) and directly went for a ride in the evening. It was around 10°C (50F) and I´ve had inside just the thermo vest and a long sleeved T-shirt and it wasn´t uncomfortable. This morning I went to work and it was around 5°C (41) so I´ve put out the vest and installed the hydratex liner. I was wearing just a T-shirt underneath and I was really surprised how the liner stopped the wind. I didn´t feel chilly even riding around 130 km/h (80 mph) – maybe my temperature tolerance level is different – anyway it was comfortable. (live in Slovakia, middle Europe)
Sizing – runs bigger:
I am a tall guy 6,3 with 43 chest and 40 waist, 200 lbs, long skinny arms and I´ve ordered size 54. I can say the fit is good. Even the sleeve length is good – but if I put out all the liners it´s feel little baggy in the biceps area (I need to visit the gym :) and also the elbow protectors move little bit (hopefully it will not affect the protection level during the crash) but that’s just because it´s more relaxed fit. Also around the stomach area it´s roomier but I am planning to put the back protector inside, so hopefully it will get better. So I was considering replacing it for 52 but I am afraid of the sleeve length so I’ll keep the 54.
Quality:
Really nice finish. It´s the Netherlands design and quality even it is made in china (what´s not these days :( The leather is soft, so you don´t need to break in the jacket and the Dynax mesh looks and feels awesome. As mentioned in previous reviews there are few differences between the video reviewed jacket and the original, but really not big deal. The ProLife armour is very comfortable; you barely notice it is inside. Nice stitching and details.
Summary:
+ Design, quality, versatility, comfort, finishing, protection,
- Sizing, hard to operate VCS zippers with gloves on, no loop for pants,
Overall I think this is a great 3 season jacket. Main reason I´ve bought this jacket was the upgrade from textile to leather - but at the same time have a jacket for every day riding to work + weekend getaways with good airflow for hot summer days and still look good on and of the bike.
This jacket offers it all.
Next step – buy back protector and Gear 2 pants :)
Only reason I´ve gave 4 stars for protection & style is that the sleeves as well as stomach area are baggy.
Yes, I recommend this product.
