Really cool blue. Blocks light well. Not sure about durability yet as I haven't been hit by any large rocks while using it yet. I would assume that it would scratch about the same as any mirrored shield.

These gloves are comfy and stylish. They have decent airflow. The one thing I found was that the closure piece came off the velcro the first time I wore them on one hand. I used fabric glue to reattach. For $29 they are good gloves.

Pros: Great style and looks Extremely comfortable Good protection in the correct locations
Cons: Air flow is not exceptional, better for temp less than 85F Pocket locations on the exterior are awkward
Overall I love this jacket and would recommend it to anyone who doesn't live in high temperature and humidity areas. The jacket doesn't breath as well as I had hoped, but really most of them don't. This jacket offers great comfortable protection in a stylish way.
When comparing fit and comfort with other brand jackets, this one comes out on top. Sizing is slightly smaller due to the inside removable liner. With the liner removed it seems comparable to other brand jackets of the same size. Sizing is very close to Alpinestars. It is more roomy than Scorpion. The back side of the jacket is lower, preventing ride up in a street bike riding position. There is no need for additional liners or add on accessories to prevent coverage on the extreme lower back. It is more comfortable than any other jacket I have worn riding.
If you are reading the reviews because you are on the fence about buying this jacket or another, BUY IT!!! I did for over a week, and ended up buying both because I couldn't make up my mind. The other was an Alpinestar. I only wear this one as it is much more comfortable and looks great. You will not regret it!
