I am a 5'11" 185lb male who normally wears a large in just about any sort of shirt/jacket/sweatshirt/etc. This is my first motorcycle jacket.
I initially ordered this in a large, and while you can cinch a lot of points down, I ultimately felt the jacket was too large. RevZilla was awesome with cross-shipping a replacement which I received a few days later. Medium is definitely the size for me, which was surprising.
The jacket is nice. The styling doesn't necessarily standout, and I can see the zippers maybe breaking down the road (they seem to be plastic or a lightweight metal). However, it seems like it'll offer plenty of protection in the event of an accident with the armor on the elbows and forearm, shoulders, and back. Overall, I think it's great value for the money given what I've tried on locally.
Living in the northeast, it's very important to me to have a jacket that works in all weather. The modularity of this jacket is great, having the mesh jacket for very warm weather, the rain shell for, well, rain... as well as keeping a bit warmer, plus the thermal liner. The rain shell has two vents in the front which stay open with no problems, and has one vent in the back which is secured open with velcro. I went for my first ride the other day with the rain shell attached, the vents open, and the thermal liner removed. I was plenty warm enough in the low 50s weather we had, though I imagine the rain shell would be a bit warm using it in warmer weather if it were raining.
