Great jacket! Looks sharp and keeps me dry and warm. The boxy cut fits us big guys well and the two way zipper keeps it from hitching up once your on the bike. I do wish the neck had some adjustment but haven't had more than a little stray breeze down my back. Sizing might be a touch on the large end but that leaves room for an extra sweatshirt in cold weather. Glad I spent the money on the Kilimanjaro instead of going for a cheaper option. One last thing, this is a substantial jacket, not flimsy and you feel the weight when you put it on. I find it feels secure but some might complain.
Pros Great Value, Comfortable, Fashionable, Rugged
Yes, I recommend this product.
