this flows enough air to keep me cool through indiana summers. i've never like the liner though, it doesn't fit like an integral part of the jacket. so this is my summer only jacket. the pads in the shoulders and elbows really like to float around too because of the soft shell of the jacket. i'll be looking for something with a little for substance next time, although it may sacrifice airflow.
better liner and stability of armor would make this a better match for me.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have the black and tan version of this boot that is not listed as an option.
These fit my needs for:
Kickstarting an older 400 thumper
Riding to work in anything from snow to 100 F summer heat
Blasting around winding roads with the race reps
They seem to be pretty water RESISTANT
Once broken in, I can take a walk into the grocery store to run errands and they don't bother me. However, i keep an extra pair of shoes at work. My jeans fit over them mostly but the bottom buckle is still visible.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I like this jacket, but i feel its a bit overpriced for the quality.
after a few washes the big patch on the sleeve looks a little wavy and it hasn't shrunk noticeably. still a bit on the big side. i mostly use it for layering under my textile jacket for colder rides and for that it works perfect.
Yes, I recommend this product.
