I love this jacket! I tried on the gp plus and other models below the tech-1r and the quality of the tech is miles apart. The gp elbow protection is far and away better, and the vented shoulder sliders are sick! They are the same sliders that you'll see on professional racers. The jacket is an aggressive race fit so I had to go up a size. I am 5'10 175 max and the 44us fits nice, the 42 was too tight with the chest and back protector installed. The air flow is awesome as well, I wore this in 85 degree heat and was perfectly comfortable. The only complaint I HAD was the race hump did bump my helmet a bit so I removed and trimmed the top of it with scissors and its perfect now and you can't tell one bit. And even with the bionic chest and race back protector i hardly notice i am wearing this much protection. It's more than confidence inspiring and i swear it's made me a better rider because of the aggressive fit and keeping my elbows in the right position. You will not be disappointed with the quality of the tech 1r, you will know where your money went.
