unsure how so many people can give this jacket such high reviews, i personally will wait a few months before reviewing any product.
i've worn this jacket throughout the Australian winter, in Perth. This jacket is not water proof, i would classify it as water resistant.
Totally soaked through and through in any moderate rain, it does hold up for a little while here is my results:
1 - 2 mm of rain (light) stood up for 30min of 100km/h riding before getting through liners onto cloths
2-3mm of rain (moderate) would get about 15min at same speeds before seepage.
3mm+ (moderate to heavy) lucky to get 10min before your soaked.
Warmth: During winter and no rain, kept me nice and cozy.
Fit: Overall very good, felt nice to wear, biggest issue is with colar, restricting movment of head as it is flush with helmet, forcing you to push the collar as you turn ure head.
Conclusion: I think it should be criminal for a company to advertise a product as water proof when it is resistant at the most.
Rides: 2007 Honda CBR1100XX Super Blackbird
No, I do not recommend this product.
