This is a top quality jacket. The fit seems a little roomy the fist time you put it on but it is apparent why almost instantly once the suspension harness and kidney belt are adjusted. The jacket floats on the suspension. The jacket worked well with a press suit and theLeatt brace . Both collars are comfortable and great(weather permitting) without a collar entirely.
Pockets are big enough for everything you need and then some. It is amazing how well the goretex combined with the active vents work in keeping you comfortable. I have only ridden in light rains so far and have stayed dry. I miss a sleeve pocket and keeper loops for the hydration hose but not a big draw back. Great jacket overall.
Yes, I recommend this product.
