This is a sturdy jacket. It is necessary to upgrade to the back and chest protectors in my opinion.
-1 on the features for the Velcro closures at the collar and wrist. The Velcro likes to snag the mesh areas - not good, but can be remedied with an extra piece of Velcro to cover the troubled areas.
Airflow is sufficient for the Texas summer.
The armor is snug, comfortable, and encompasses the shoulder, elbow, and forearm areas sufficiently . I'm 5'11", 132 lbs and I have the small size. There is no noticeable bulkiness or loss of comfort with the added chest and back protectors.
The zipper is on the left side in case you were wondering.
The colors are nice, but I would have preferred white text and logos rather than the lime green that comes with the white/black version.
I've had my jacket for about 3 weeks and the road grime and bug splatter is just beginning to show on the white areas, but mind you, I live in the suburbs near the interstate, so there aren't many bugs to begin with. It's not leather so you can toss it in the wash when it get super dirty.
Overall, nice jacket. If I were to go back in time I would buy the jacket all over again.
Yes, I recommend this product.
