Arrived with a shade lighter than expected, but after popping it on the helmet and cruising in full sun I realized it removes glare and helps overall visual acuity. There are NO artifacts in the visual field...just this nice, sealed invisible tint in front of me.

Quite a nice jacket, although I don't pull all the stops and rate it as a full-five-star perfect example of the genre. The airflow and protection seem ample, and two snaps in each arm help with snugging in the final fit. It is a short and rather snug jacket, but not skin-tight...it's definitely a sport-cut jacket, so it fits (one assumes) as a shorter, tighter, more form-fitting jacket. I ride a cruiser and I like how it doesn't bunch up in athe rear. It could use more interior pockets, since the only pocket inside is mesh and doesn't give one that warm-fuzzy that whatever you zip into it will be safe...but the pocket "works", though the zipper pull is stupid small and difficult to manage with meaty fingers. Stays cool in 85+ heat, so no problem there.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Bang for the Buck
Protection & Durability
Fit is perfect in the finger length, with just the right amount of loose fabric in the palm and knuckle area to allow for managing controls without binding across the width of the hands. I used the sizing chart and opted for large based on the tape measure. First pair of Spidi. Impressed so far.
