I bought this jacket at a local bike shop for the same price revilla lists it at. This is my only riding jacket and I like it. The airflow is great. Even with a hoodie on under this, I can still get air flowing through both. It fits well and the armor is CE rated. Unfortunately, the back pad is just a foam pad. I bought a forcefield pro back insert (shape A size small) to replace it. Also, the wind proof liner is not included and is a $30 add on though. With the liner and upgraded backpad, this is a solid jacket for summer or winter use.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I got shape A size small. I replaced the cheap foam backpad in my scorpion drafter jacket size medium. My jacket now has all CE rated armor. The forcefield back pad is very stout. It is heavier than foam and does add noticeable weight to the jacket. The shape is almost exactly the same as the foam piece it replaces so I am confident that it will be located properly at all times. After wearing the jacket a few times, it now has a feeling of much more protection. Revzilla price matched this item for me so it was a great buy and I would recommend it to anyone who still has the original foam pad in their riding jacket.
Yes, I recommend this product.
