Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Let me be up front about this jacket: if you have worn mesh equipment from companies like First Gear, Joe Rocket or ICON, you need to know that this mesh jacket is not in the same class as the $120+ basic jackets from those companies. The exterior is light nylon mesh reminiscent of a football jersey, the foam padding is thin and firm, and the overall fit and finish of the jacket is not in the same class as mainstream motorcycle equipment.
With that said, for $60, this is a very good value. It keeps the foam padding where it needs to be, and given the choice between going down in this jacket vs. going down in a non-motorcycle jacket, I would certainly pick this jacket. It's not for the daring canyon carver or the 90mph+ freeway driver, but it's certainly adequate for street commuting.
I am 6' -0" and 250 #. the 2XL size fits me just right. Works great in the 65 to 85 degree weather. Under 65 you need a sweatshirt and above 85 the jacket is too warm. the armor fits comfortably, I rode 340 miles in one day without any discomfort.
After reviewing many jackets I decided to go with this one because of features and cost. I was certainly correct in my decision as the large jacket fit perfectly (I'm 6'3" 180 lb.). The armor is a bit pliable but certainly offers a good level of protection. The Jacket is very visible from a distance and so far is very cool on an 80+ degree day. Naturally when stopped it heats up but above 30 MPH its quite breezy from shoulder on top to belt line. I would believe this jacket would be an OK fit up to about 195 or so in weight. The arm snaps adjust to 3 variations of fit and the belt line via a good Velcro pull tab each side. I would recommend this jacket to all first time riders for fit, value and mostly visibility front and rear. One other note, the packaging shows a seller who cares about their clients. The cutting points box top and bottom have a cardboard shield to keep the over zealous buyer from cutting into the jacket on opening. Maybe not much to some but as a business...
