Overall, this jacket is pretty ridiculous, but for the price, I think it should be closer to perfect than it is. Construction and protection is top notch and it feels like it will stand up to a lot of abuse. Its got a ton of style to boot, but there are a few issues (2 of them being pretty major).
If your considering this jacket, remember the bulk added by the liner and back protector. I am +/- a few cm on the majority of size 48 measurements and the jacket fits just right. I have just enough room for a t-shirt and mid weight fleece layer and its on the verge of being too tight (Its wicked warm though).
The things I like:
Great adjustability to suit various weather and temperatures.
Great quality materials and construction.
The armor is awesome and I feel very protected wearing the jacket.
Armor placement is perfect.
Thoughtful placement of pockets (More on pockets later).
The jacket is super comfortable in riding position.
So far, it has kept me completely dry but have not worn it in rain lasting any longer then 20 minutes.
The things I'm not too fond of:
#1 major issue-The storm guard doesn't work. On my jacket, the distance between the two front snaps on the jacket are much further apart than those on the guard itself. I'm unable to snap it to the jacket when I'm wearing it. Beyond that, you have to yank the heck out of it to even get it to reach the snaps. This is a pretty big issue and am considering a warranty claim over it because I'd love that storm guard to work in my climate.
#2 major issue-The wrist zippers snag on the inner material and it is really annoying. I consider it a pretty big design flaw.
Exterior pocket zippers are too short. I don't have big hands and find it difficult to reach the bottom of the front pockets.
The jacket is a bit long but this is easily fixed with the two way front zip.
The water bottle pockets detract from the jacket's overall good looks and functionality.
Yes, I recommend this product.
