Scorpion Hat Trick Jacket Three goals, three jackets. The Hat Trick has a nylon mesh outer layer with ballistic nylon elbow and shoulder panels, providing maximum airflow for hot-weather riding. Two removable liners do the rest One's an insulated Thermoliner to keep you warm when it's cool, and the other's a breathable waterproof liner that keeps you dry when it's wet. Simple and highly effective - a true four-season system. Features NightViz reflective panels front and back for visibility two inside and two outside pockets for all your cargo Cool, tattoo-inspired asymmetrical screened and embroidered graphics give a total custom look CE-approved SaS-Tec armor guards all critical shoulder and elbow impact areas

This is a high quality jacket, but without the liners in, it becomes fairly loose. And if you size it to fit without the liners in, I imagine it would be very snug with the liners.
I used the size chart and ordered a medium. I am 5' 7", 165 #39" chest# and it fit well with the liners and loose without. However, I am a fan of a snugger fit. With that in mind, I found the abdomen area to be larger than the chest, a very American cut.
The loose fit did seem to affect the placement of the armor in both the elbows and shoulders, making them loose as well. There are no adjustments in the arms to correct this either.
Despite fitment, the construction is high quality with what appears to be rugged stitching, zippers, and armor. The liners also appear to be high quality and warm, but they are not something that you would want to take out and put in often. Keep that in mind when thinking of the versatility. You will probably end up just using a warm underlayer when the weather varies a lot in the spring/fall instead of using the insulated layer.
I did return the jacket due to fitment, but for anyone with a larger abdomen or who prefers an American cut in general, I would recommend it.
Yes, I recommend this product.
