Overall this is a good product, but it does not stand out. In terms of fabrics used it is in the top 50%. Stitching is straight and overall garment assembly is as good as any.
The outstanding issue with the jacket is the armor. The shoulder and elbow/forearm armor says CE rated on tags but I honestly doubt the veracity of the label. This can be replaced, though the cost lessens the price/performance of the garment. The back protector is of a proprietary shape that is not replicated by any 3rd party manufacturer, clearly is not CE quality, and Tourmaster does not provide any upgrade path, nor shall they (I asked). Had I known this at point of purchase I would have not bought the jacket and instead would have bought a Rev'it, Teknic, Macna or other mesh jacket with superior armor from the onset.
No, I do not recommend this product.
