I bought this jacket to wear over my armour. I used it for six days while riding multiple trail rides and forest tracks. Has great venting for the hot days. When travelling on the open road at 70mph/100kph it handles the wind well. I could imagine though, If the air was cool it might cut through the jacket. I haven't taken any tumbles with the jacket so can't comment on it's protection really. All the days were sunny and warm, I'm not sure how well the jacket holds out in rain, but I don't think it was designed as a "touring jacket" anyway.
Stylewise it looks good on. I'm 178cm or 5'10" and weight 65kg and the small size was perfect for me even with the armour on underneath. The hydration pack worked well in the jacket.
The sleeves velcro down nice and snug.
Over all a very good jacket.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I ride in New Zealand and spent a good deal of time researching the pants which I thought would be good for dual sport riding. These are stylish, warm but well vented for hot days, feel durable - though I haven't put them through many tests yet. And for their price not bad compared to other brands such as Rev It.
Yes, I recommend this product.
