It's an awesome jacket, it's mesh throughout the front and back. Armor in the shoulders and elbows. Mesh feels durable but I'm not sure and don't plan on finding out how it does in a fall. Amazing airflow when you ride and not as hot as other jackets when you're stopped in traffic. Jacket is really light too and built well.
My only criticism is that it's a bit too short for people with longer torsos and arms like me. An extra inch or two in length and sleeve would have been great. I'm 6'1 165lbs with a longer torso and arms. I got a size 50.

Shoei CW-1 Faceshield The new Shoei CW-1 Visor / face shield fits Shoei Qwest, RF-1100 and X-12 Helmets Q.R.S.A. (Quick-Release Self-Adjusting) base plate allows for tool-less shield removal and installation. The spring-loaded base plate (U.S. patent pending 11/799935) pulls the shield back into contact with the window beading evenly and ensures a proper seal The CW-1, three-dimensionally curved shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces Optional, CWF-1 two-dimensional racing shields with tear-off posts are available Scratch-resistant coating 99.9 protection from harmful UV A and B rays Optional, CW-1 Pinlock prepared shields are available to accommodate Pinlock Fog Free Inserts A pre-set lever can easily lock the shield in place to prevent the shield from opening unexpectedly, as well as prop the shield open to increase airflow Note Mellow Smoke refers to a tint that is lighter than the Light Smoke shield. Note Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States

I got the dark smoke face shield. It's perfect for bright sunny days. I'll open my visor when I ride at night if I happen to have it on, otherwise it's a quick switch between this and the clear face shield. I would recommend the Light Smoke if you would rather not change face shields as often.

At $29 you can't really go wrong. Great for daily riding, not a ton of protection but better great airflow and comfort for the price. The inner sew on the left index finger for the pair that I got was a little thick and caused a little pressure, but nothing that couldn't easily be fixed with a pair of scissors. Bottom line is you get what you pay for!

Wanted a pair of shoes to ride in which I could wear casually and these fit the bill perfectly. I'd order a half size up since they do run narrow in the front. Good protection in the heal area and nice non-slip sole. Single zipper makes it easy to slip on and off.
