Great leather jacket and well worth it for the leather quality and the features it has.
I would caution people to buy 2 sizes up if you have an athletic or medium size built though. I am 5'4", 160 lbs with athletic/medium size built.
I ordered size 42, and normally wear a 40. With a 42 it was quite small with all the pads. If I were racing on the track, it would be fine. However, I plan to wear it for summer commuting.
Because I'm used to wearing somewhat loose jackets, I had to remove the back protector and shoulder pads. It already has the exterior aluminum insert, and forearm/elbow pad too, not to mention the sport hump and a backpack I usually wear.
It does feel a lot more comfortable without all the pads. I should've ordered a size 44 instead, but Revzilla is sold out.
I would only complain about the length of the waist, as it does sit quite high. If you are overweight, it could be a problem trying to zip it and attach to a pair of pants.
This type of jacket may not be the style for certain body builds. It really is made for fit riders who race on the track occasionally...

I was in search of a 2nd helmet, and knew that this was the one. My friend has an EXO-400 also, and I loved how it fitted. For the price, it's well worth it, especially when it's SNELL certified. Not many helmets for the price of $100 (on sale) that has these features.
Plenty of air flow and good design as well.
It can also be a good 1st helmet for newbies out there or those who just don't want to spend much money.
It fits quite snug as a intermediate oval shaped helmet that will fit most head sizes out there.
The face shield is one of the easiest to install and simple.
You get what you pay for, and for $100, I will never complain.
Get your EXO-400 while there are some sizes left!
They sell out quite fast, and I'm not sure if they'll discontinue this model with a new one to replace or not.

This Iridium Mirror I got for my K3 helmet is really nice and stands out. It does block out the sunlight, but not too dark either. I like how the AGV logo is on the side. It doesn't scratch either. I never purposely tried to scratch it, but I have bumped the front of the shield a few times on some surfaces except concrete, and I haven't had any scratches.
I'm glad that I chose AGV as my helmet, and plan to focus more on their brand for future shopping. Thanks REVZILLA! Keep your videos coming...
