I am 6'4" tall, about 210# and finding an off the rack jacket that fits can be frustrating. Aside from custom order jackets (which are very pricey), Cortech is the only brand I found that has tall sizes and delivers a decent quality item. The 44 tall fit true to size and is a very comfortable and good looking jacket. Very stylish.
I bought this jacket primarily for those hot Northern California summers but was surprised to find that, with the liners, it is also a very good three season jacket. It has good flow through ventilation when wearing it without the liners yet warm enough for those cool or damp days with the liners in.
The downside: One of the velcro sleeve fasteners was poorly sewn so I had to spend 10 min. resewing it. The stitching, overall, is just "OK". The velcro fasteners are rather small and cheap. The elbow armor has a tendency to shift around.
Overall, a good jacket. For the price, a very good jacket.

After researching the jackets available, my wife chose the REV'IT air jacket mostly for the style and how nicely it fit. I was, however, taken by the quality of the material and the workmanship put into this jacket. The European sizing is no problem if you follow the guidelines on the website. My wife absolutely LOVES this jacket.
