I was looking for a jacket that I could show up to a client's office in, and still be safe on my Duc. This jacket fits the bill perfectly- on or off the bike. Great fit (Large-I'm 5-9/170lbs)-snug enough to not be flapping, not so snug I can't get a sweater under it. The leather is beautiful and the finish is top notch.

The gloves are solid-perfect for cold riding w/heated grips..had them down into the 30's. Only complaint for me is the plasticized logo around the cuff makes it hard to get the cuff of my coat over them. Allow some break-in time, though- they are softening up w/ every ride-

Fit is great-especially for a Euro boot. I wear a 9-1/2E and 44's fit great. The sole damps vibration nicely, and the lugs are great on all surfaces. The boots start out a little on the stiff side, but should loosen up a bit over time.
Pros Rugged, Comfortable
Yes, I recommend this product.

A little snug with the liner in, but don't need a sweater or fleece (down into the 30's with just a t-neck) so it's all good. Haven't tested the water-proofness yet, but the jacket is very comfortabel Like the removable neck gaiter, and especially the little arm pocket for keys!
Pros Comfortable, Rugged
Yes, I recommend this product.

Perfect Jacket. The fit is a bit snug with the liner in, but not uncomfortable. It doesn't leave much room for a sweater, but you won't need it- the liner makes anything other than a heavy shirt unnecessary. So far, the jacket w/ the liner was very comfortable from the mid 30's to the low 60's, when it was a bit warm and I took it out. The removable neck gaiter is a great feature- and plenty of pockets to carry whatever Idon't want to put in a saddlebag.
Pros Comfortable
Yes, I recommend this product.
