I've owned a leather and now 2 textile jackets. Both textile jackets are not as tight in the shoulders and chest as I'd like, but maybe that's the way they are.
I have 32" waist according to my jeans, and ordered the small. Its very tight around the waist, but very loose in the shoulders and chest, but i suspect that helps with air flow... the part that bothers me is when I'm putting it on, I have to navigate my arms through the sleeves to avoid the protection that seems to float a bit too much. Luckily I spend more time riding than taking the jacket off and on.
For the price I feel it was a good deal.

I've been riding for eight years and have been using the same $100 helmet the entire time. my RF1100, came last week and I only wish I had bought it sooner! To think of all the money I have spent on motorcycles, when $400 for a helmet made such a huge difference in riding satisfaction. I can only review against my lack of helmet experience, but this lid is quieter, less wind resistance, lighter and I have more confidence in it.
I do wish it had a quick release chin strap, or at least an easier snap for the remaining strap. It's hard to make it fog even on purpose for a test, and the front vent quickly wisk it away. And I can actually feel my hair blowing with all vents open.
I can't compare it against other $400ish helmets, but I know I won't be buying another anytime soon! I recommend, unless ur really picky, then go try a bunch and come back to the RF1100.
