This is a light-weight jacket with lots of airflow, but seemingly good protection (haven't gotten to try that feature out yet...). The high-vis is something I'm committing to; though from a style standpoint, I'd sooner not, but it's well worth it - I know it's made a difference in my riding experience, especially in town. It's still a great-looking jacket. I'm going with the motto: Motorcyclists, start BEING seen! Pockets are great, too - almost too good, as I find myself digging through them to find things. Sizing is a bit tricky - I was told two different sizes from the guys on the phone. I'm 6'0, 41-inch chest, 36-inch waist, 210 pounds. I first tried the 50, but it was too small; the 52 fits just right.
It's pricey, but, in my view, well worth it.
Yes, I recommend this product.
