This bag is a good size/shape for what i need. The problem I'm having with it is that the bungees are not securely fastened. I've only used it twice so far, and the first time I used it, one of the bungee cords came loose from the bag, so I had to retie it. And the second time I used it, one of the hooks fell off of the end of a bungee cord. Luckily both of these times the product malfunctioned while i was putting the bag on, and not later on while I was already riding. I've retied all of the ends, but I'm still not sure I trust it.
No, I do not recommend this product.

I just got this jacket. I've worn it once, and so far I'm very pleased with my purchase. I am 5'5'' and 140lbs, and hourglass shaped. I ordered a large and it fits me perfectly. Most motorcycle jackets have the tendency to make me look like the stay-puft marshmallow man, so the belt at the natural waist is what really sold me on this jacket. Another aspect that I love is that it's cut longer in the torso than most jackets. It all comes together to create a really sleek, flattering look. I got this jacket as an alternative to my mesh jacket, for use on colder rides, and with the quilted liner, I think it's going to be perfect.
Just a couple negative things:
- The armor in the shoulders and elbows feels pretty flimsy. It's not nearly as sturdy as the armor that came in my similarly-priced, mesh, Fieldsheer jacket. I plan to replace it with better quality pieces (and to buy a back protector to fit in the built-in pocket).
- The sleeves don't taper at the wrist, which looks really stylish, but you get a lot of wind up the sleeve. There are straps to tighten them a bit, but gauntlet gloves will definitely be a necessity in cold-weather.
Yes, I recommend this product.
