I get tons of compliments on this jacket from those who ride (particularly girls on scooters) and tons of surprised post-hug reactions from friends/family when they realize I'm wearing an armored moto jacket. This thing is stylish.
My favorite things? The tall collar, large armor coverage, lack of conspicuous logos and surprising weather resistance.
My least favorite things? The material isn't the most confidence inspiring for high speeds. I've gone down in gravel at around 15mph and the forearm material tore easily. Fortunately, the elbow pads cover most of the forearm and and shoulder pads also have good coverage to make up for some of it.
In short: this is an awesome jacket for day to day around the town riding hopping between cafes, clubs, bars, etc. Although I've worn it on longer tours and even some fire roads, I'd suggest something made from a more durable material.

As my first motorcycle helmet, I feel pretty spoiled with the features of a modular helmet at such a great entry price. It's really handy being able to pop up the face for visibility when backing up my bike or to talk while parked on a break.
My main beef with the helmet is that the chin guard plastic seems very flimsy and seems like it'd be the first to go in a crash. I'm putting my trust in the DOT sticker and well known brand.
Also, the latch's inside cover on the chin guard was cracked when I got it. This appears to be from poorly fitted plastic. I'm fairly certain the piece is superficial (not related to function or integrity), so I've decided to hang on to the helmet, regardless.
