I like mine alot. Good protection, lots of pockets, nice and warm with the liner. Haven't had the chance to check out the waterproof-ness, yet.
Slightly sloppy in construction. The zippers for the liners don't really actually park in the "zipper garages" at the tops of the zippers - everything's just a little out of alignment. There were a few other little similar things I can't quite remember, too, but overall I certianly liked it and wouldn't recommend against buying it unless you're a real perfectionist.
The cuffs are hard to get gloves inside of, and forget putting your gloves outside of them - they're huge.
In fact, in general the jacket is HUGE. I wear a 52 or so in a Dainese jacket #that's a US 40 or 42#, and a medium in most euro fit stuff, and I swim in the small Icon Patrol #which is the smallest size they make#. It's really almost too big for me. I'm 5'10" an 170 lbs.
Went down on black ice in it at about 40kph#25ish mph?# and not so much as a scuff mark on it, and I didn't feel a thing. Not a huge crash, but still, went down, slid 40 feet, not even a bruise on me? I'm happy with that...

This is a great jacket if you're only going to have one jacket. It's tough and well armoured (other than the need to add a back protector and chest protector if you want one). The leather is really thick and heavy duty, and the construction seems pretty decent too. knee and shoulder armour feels quite good, and stays in place well even though my arms aren't huge.
Lots of perforation, so not crazy hot in the summer, and comes with a good full sleeve thermal liner for colder days. This jacket took me from about 35C#95F# to 8C#46F) comfortably. Below 8C it would have been ok if there was room to wear a fleece or something under it. I couldn't wear one under it because I sized it to fit without the liner in the summer, and it got a bit tight with the liner and anything more than a sweatshirt underneath.
Back protector slot is hard to get other brands of protectors in, since the zipper is about 5 inches down from the top of the protector, and the pocket is shaped to fit the protector exactly. I'd suggest if you're adding a back protector to either get one that is made to fit in this jacket, or get one that you can cut down to fit using the foam insert it comes with as a template.
I find the zippers a bit annoying.
Cons:
White leather gets dirty quickly
Leather seems to dry out very fast near perforations and starts to flake a bit.
No pants connection zipper, so you can't really use it as a track jacket. But it does have a small leather loop that you can hook up to a belt or belt loop to keep it from riding up on your back when you're on the bike.
Back protector slot is hard to get other brands of protectors in
Finish on metal sliders wears off quickly.
Not light.
