Got this on sale, hence the good value rating. Cut on jacket is athletic so it looks nice and aggressive, and fit is good. I went a size up to comfortable fit pressure suit underneath. Built in Knox armor is removable (note you have to feed the elbow pieces out the back pad opening). Only ding on comfort is the neck fabric MIGHT chafe a little if your shirt doesn't have much collar or if sensitive skin. 1.4mm looks tough -- good protection. Its leather so not great airflow, but it incorporates little scoop vents on shoulders that can help a bit. All-in-all good solid jacket. I'm 165 lbs, 6'0", got 44 for extra room, would go 42 if just wearing t-shirt under.

Haven't crash tested so protection rating based on Snell cert. FYI sticker says snell M2005, but snell website has it listed as meeting M2010 although it's not marketed as such. My head is ~22.5" and kinda oval-ish and med fits well. Longest non-stop wear time so far was 2 hours, and pleased to report no discomfort or sore spots. Lots of vents. Also, has that new helmet smell. Good value for price. Haven't swapped shields yet but instructions say you must have it in full open position to change -- not sure if other posters having trouble did this.
