Protection & Durability
I am 6" and 180lbs. I ordered the Medium and it fits perfectly. I love this jacket. The vents work really well. On hot days, I open all the vents and riding is a pleasure. As other reviewers noted, it does "balloon" up when going over 65. One gets used to this over time though, but its a bit annoying at first.
I live in Santa Barbara, so the mornings are misty and often wet, but the afternoons are stunning. Opening the vents in the afternoon keeps me cool and closing them for the morning commute keeps me nice and warm. I have also ridden briefly (15mins) in the rain with this jacket and was kept nice a dry.
This is really a great jacket. The adjustability in the arms and waist ensures a perfect fit.
Our new Drifter Jacket looks like you've worn it for many miles and many years, and is just that comfortable. Constructed of quality, medium weight, distressed brown leather for comfort and protection, and accented with antiqued brass hardware, it is an instant old friend and only gets better with use! The sleeved, insulated and removable liner provides warmth while the 2 clever front combination vent/pockets and the 2-rear zippered exhaust vents allow cooling in hot weather. There are also 2-front hand-warmer pockets, an inside zippered pocket, and a special inside cell/PDA pocket. Zippered side gussets and cuffs ensure a comfortable fit, and other features include smooth YKK zippers, a tab collar with snap, and a trick leather locker loop for hanging your Drifter.
