Olympia Renegade Mesh Tech Jacket The Olympia Renegade jacket offers a unique combination of retro yet modern styling making it perfect for just about any riding style. Despite its competitive price, no substitutions were made when selecting key safety components for this style. Like all Olympia gear, the Renegade is cut in a combination of authentic Cordura fabric with ballistic nylon mesh panels for maximum airflow and superior abrasion resistance. It also comes fully equipped with our articulated CE armor at the shoulders, elbows and back. 3M reflective trim adds additional safety in low light situations. Features Outer shell constructed in 500 denier Cordura fabric with ballistic airflow mesh panels Removable CE approved Motion Flex armor at elbows and shoulders Removable CE approved Motion Flex articulated back protector Cool mesh airflow lining Custom Fit detailing at collar, cuffs, elbows and waist Comfort neoprene framed collar 3M Scotchlite reflective piping at front, sides and back 8 connecting zipper for pants Two storage pockets plus interior cell phone pocket

Fits Americans. Flows a ton of air. Jacket is a little short. Good for the money.

Here in DC, the summers suck due to the humidity, and I commute daily. This jacket flows a ton of air, but like anything else, you have to be moving. Even with the armor in, it doesn't bake you to death when you are sitting in traffic like many jackets will.
As I have found with most Olympia gear, this jacket is cut properly, not just for the sleek. I wear a size 48-50 suit coat, and the XXL fits pretty good except for the sleeve length, which I found to be a little short. The jacket also DOES ride up in the back, however, the zipper strip in the back mates perfectly to my Olympia vented pants I got last year, and the jacket also has keepers to attach to your trouser belt if you aren't wearing protective pants, so that solves the problem.
The pockets are mesh, so I would expect sharp objects like keys to poke through them over time, but its not an adventure coat - its a super hot weather jacket, so no points down for that. Overall, I like it. Its exactly what I needed. I would recommend it, and if it wears out I would buy another one at that price.

It is a plug and play unit, but understanding the mapping and what it really does with the EFI was a little confusing for a novice. Also, I failed to save the map download the first time I tried - maybe I didnt understand the process? Except for difficulty of accessing the crowded connectors under the frame on my bike (DL-1000 V-Strom), it's a pretty simple install. Big performance difference that might not have been achievable without this unit. So far, so good.

I had a RevIt jacket that was just not cut for "Regulation-sized" men. So I got this Olympia jacket, and it fits much better. (I wear a size 50 long suit coat, and the 3X with insulated liner fits fine over my Gerbings liner.) This jacket is primarily for winter use as a windbreak over my heated liner. I got the Hi Viz Yellow color, and it is definitely visible! Below 35 degrees, I still need to use the liner this jacket came with, though. The liner affixes to the jacket with really cheesy loops and Velcro foldovers, and snaps would have been much better. The collar is also a little odd until you get used to it, but it sort of "seals up" under the helmet and helps keep wind out. Great jacket for the money.

It works, but not rugged. Seems expensive for a thin insert.

This is the best anti-fog product I have used for my face shield to date. However, this is a replacement insert. When raising the helmet face shield using the thumb "tab" at the lower left corner, the face shield torques the entire face shield on an angle a little bit, causing the insert to break its seal and fog up. Extra care and concious thought has to be taken when raising and lowering the face shield with the insert is in place or fogging WILL occur in cold weather, and it cannot clear without removing the insert and wiping it and the faceshield dry. It's still a great system to reduce fogging.

Bought the tires recently subsequent to positive reviews. Put the set on my DL-100 V-Strom. I have not taken them off-road yet so I can't comment on that element, but for commuting with a combination of open highway as well as city riding, they have been great. I expect them to last well. The tires showed up within a few days of ordering, so as always, great service.

Fits right, and belt loops are a good feature along with the elastic in the waistband. The elastic allows for light trousers to be worn underneath. They could have come in trouser lengths - having such heavy material hemmed with the velcro closures did not make my seamstress smile, but I can see how it keeps the price point down. Zip off legs is a nice touch. Haven't worn them on many rides yet, but it is just starting to get warm here in the DC metro area.
