Brent P. from BACKUS, MN:
I am very pleased with this jacket overall. It feels very protective. The zips and construction are of very high quality. Temperature management is good, the vents are nice, and let a good amount of air through. The ability to zip pants to the jacket is a major plus. In the rain however the forearms and zips where the sleeves detach leak. The rest of the jacket stays nice and dry though. The zip-in liner is a major plus for those colder days. With the liner and a few good base layers, this jacket is good to very low temperatures. I would recommend it as a budget jacket.

Anthony S. from Newberry, FL:
Love this jacket, my only complaint isn't with that jacket it is that the sizing chart is wrong and the jacket was to small. Cant wait for my replacement to get here. Best jacket for the price.

Burke W. from FAYETTEVILLE, NC:
The jacket is amazing it fits great all the pockets and padding. I needed a tougher and cooler jacket for summer riding. the first thing I did was take off the sleeves and pull the liner and go for a ride it is just what I was looking for. Something that I can wear all year round and not sweat to death and this is it. The padding and armor make this a great jacket vest.

For the price and quality one of the best jackets out there. Very comfortable and has loads of features. Armor is in right places and the zippers are very good. Very good ventilation and the weight is not too much. Highly recommend.

lance m. from White Cloud, MI:
I just got back from a 2,500 mile cross country trip in Ontario where the average temp was around 55F. I needed to put on a fleece under this jacket but that was to be expected. We encountered two solid days of rain and much to my surprise, this jacket kept me completely dry. I am 5'11" and around 185lbs. Height/weight proportionate. Size Large fits me perfectly. I have one very real complaint about this jacket. The removable arm zipper on my left arm failed after a very short time. I had a seamstress replace both zippers with a higher quality zipper for $40. This failure unfortunately effected the bottom line cost of the jacket as well as my score for quality. However, outside of this one issue, I'm extremely happy with my purchase.

James J C. from WILKES BARRE, PA:
The jacket exceeds what was expected, excellent quality. Plenty of pockets, including a cell phone and gun pocket, that can accommodate most needs. The jacket needs to be broken in to be more comfortable, which I am sure will happen. The customer service is outstanding, I had a issue with my order and it was rectified very quickly to my satisfaction. Thanks

Henny S. from COLORADO SPGS, CO:
Ordered in my usual size and it was way too small. Returned it for two sizes larger and it fit much better. I keep finding new pockets and features everyday. Used it during a nasty rainstorm and I didn't feel a thing. Feels good with the sleeves off. Some of the sewing started failing after about 2 weeks so needs to be better made, however. Overall great jacket but some of the sewing needs reinforcement.

Sharon G. from Eden, GA:
Aftter exchanging this jacket twice, I ended up having to get a refund. The size is WAY off. My son usually wears a XL, which is what we ordered originally, because it was so small, we exchanged for a 3XL, it was still small and cannot be zipped up and was tight in the arms, So disappointed and now scared to order another jacket from this company because they run so small. It's a shame too, because the jacket was very nice and well made.

Brian M. from COLBY, KS:
I love this jacket! It is great quality, and build design. I feel safe and its all stays in place. The pcokets, the air vents, the zippers all work great. I do want to share I am a 2xl in all jackets and shirts. But I heard people say that I needed to buy 2 sizes bigger than I normally wear. I did, I purchased a 4x and it fits me great. My stomach and chest area, and arms all fit great. I must also share, when I got the jacket and tried it with the inner liner on (its removable by zipper) it felt a bit tight, since the first day when I removed it, I have worn the jacket without that liner, and it has always felt great without it. The jacket looks great, I ride a street bike, got compliments on jacket. But also know this... it get HOT in there on sunny days. I havent tried riding with no sleeves.. it seems crazy but I might try it locally and not on highway.. well see! Enjoy! and GET IT!

Jedidiah A. from LOCKPORT, NY:
Sizing for jacket is way off. I'm normally a 3xl and I ordered a 4xl. Wasn't even close to fitting me. Had to send it back and exchange for a 6xl. Should fit now. Zippers and armor are good quality but I think zip off sleeves are not needed. When would I take the time to zip it off the sleeves when at my motorcycle destination, then zip them back on when I'm about to ride? Pointless to me

Mark M. from CORONA, CA:
First off I want to say that I really like this jacket. Like other reviews I agree that the sleeves feel a little tight right at the spot that they zip on and off, But by no means a deal breaker. The one thing that I really found dissapointing was the position of the air vents. Let's face it 90% of the people ordering this jacket probably ride a street bike and wear a backpack. The vents could have been placed in such a way to allow them to function while wearing a backpack. However they are completely blocked and useless when you have a backpack on. Other than that like I said it's a great jacket at a nice price. I would definatley reccommend this jacket.

This jacket is awesome! Hands down very comfy and protective. Luckly I havent gone down on it. Its very warm, has inner liner you can take out if its too hot. Option to make its a short sleeve jacket. Lots of pockets for pretty much anything. Just get what size you normally wear. Great price.

Kyle T. from TEMPLE, PA:
I bought this in August. I live in PA about 1 hour north of philly. I didn't need it until late sept. but once i needed it I completely feel it's worth every penny. Plenty of pockets in it for my phone wallet, house keys, ect. Almost too many pockets, I loose stuff in it. I ride a Honda Shadow cruizer. I rode in my local toys for tot's in 40F with the inner liner and i was sweating still. The vents don't do much with the liner in. I never took the sleeves off to ride but i took them off to see if they were easy, and they were. If i ride my bike to a store i need to take it off if i'm going to be in the store for any decent length of time. or else i sweat like crazy. It protects against the rain rather well too. if you want a good jacket that will keep you warm this is it. I can happily say i have yet to see if the armor protect me (knock on wood). but when it comes to size order your size don't go buy the company sizing chart. order what ever size shirt/jacket you wear. I wear XL shirt and that's the size jacket i bought fits me like a glove, but thier chart says i should get a M not XL.

Even with the lining out, the coat is warm and breaks the cool wind! My husband was so excited when he received and it made me look really good for finding it. The quality is outstanding and it exceeded my expectations. It will keep him warm and protect him.

Phenomenal quality for a great price! The jacket looks even better in person than on the site. Much lighter and way less bulky than I would have imagined it to be. Very satisfied with my purchase. What's more I received 4 out of 5 of my items the day after I placed my order, crazy fast shipping!

CHRIS R. from SAHUARITA, AZ:
Great jacket! It wont work for me, i wish it would, but it wont. I have large shoulders and arms along with a 76" arm span, so i went with the 5X. This jacket is a little big in the midsection, it fits my shoulders and arm lenght is good but it does not fit my biceps area. It is way too tight, like there isnt enough slack in the arm pit area, so i can lift my arms past about 45 degrees. It might work if you ride a supersport bike but of you ride a cruiser with drag bars or apes this is a no go. Looks like I will have to use only a vest. This jacket exceeded my expectations in all categories having to do with materials and workmanship. If your built like a twig it may work for you!

David B. J. from CHESTER, VA:
It's a great Jacket but mine is way to big and i don't have the $28 to send it back just to exchange it, wish i did though, so basically i'm out $90. here's a SIZING TIP: I wear a Large in t-shirts, i bought this jacket in XL, and it's just uncomfortably big, i need a Large. So go by your T-Shirt size and you'll be fine, and there will still be room for other clothing layers underneath. Mine has enough room to fit an entire identical jacket underneath and still have room.

I love this jacket!!!!! I almost gave it a four star for this one reason. The collar seems to rub on your neck and irritates the crap out of you. I wish they put a different material around the neck maybe leather. I just might have to get it tailored and put silk around the collar.

Jeffrey S. from LOXLEY, AL:
I am 6'3" and 220lbs. Normally wear a 34" waist in levi jeans with a 50 chest and a 2xl fit me perfect!! Fits perfect with a normal button up collar shirt or T-shirt and snug with a T-shirt and thick hoodie. Not sure how they get their size chart!! Jacket is heavy requiring a metal hanger. Very comfortable riding and very warm!! Great South Alabama fall/winter/spring jacket.........long sleeves even when extended on my V-strom 1000. Can't speak much about construction, pockets or venttillation as I have not used it much yet. Looks super cool with the 6 pak abs and definitely feels like I am protected with all the armor. Excellent value in my opinion.

Sean F. from SUNNYVALE, CA:
I received this jacket yesterday when the Fedex man pulled up right when I got home. This is my first motorcycle jacket, so I have nothing to compare it to, but I was very excited. First impression was it's a very good looking jacket and that is probably why 90% of buyers choose it. It's fairly heavy which is reassuring, but since CE levels don't go above 2 and I couldn't find any info on what Xelement means by Level 3 armour, I'm not sure how well it would perform in a crash. I'm a tiny person at 5'8" and 140lbs, so I went with a small. There is plenty of room for a hoodie or extra spine protection if you're slim, but the waist and sleeve adjustment straps make it fit great. I put a few patches on the shoulder and chest pads to add some style and they make the jacket look even better. The shoulder armour moves around a bit and the back armour is very thin, so if you get this, I would definitely recommend replacing at least the back armour. The zipper had a sharp point on the bottom but that was easily fixed with a Dremel. Also, the kidney belt seems to be barely held on by the mesh it's stitched to. Overall, I really like the jacket.

KELLY M. from XENIA, OH:
I just received this jacket and I absolutely LOVE IT! I am 5' 9" about 175 lbs. and ordered a large and I couldn't be happier with the fit! It fits perfectly in every way. I especially like the slightly long sleeves putting them at the top of my knuckles standing with my arms down, and comfortably right at the wrist/palm on my bike in riding position, how motorcycle jacket sleeves should be. I was a little concerned about this when I ordered it because I DO NOT like the sleeves short while riding. It is not bulky or restrictive even with all of the armor, it hugs just enough and has just enough weight to it to know you're wearing it, giving a definite feeling of confidence. It is very comfortable and the armor is snug in the jacket/doesn't move around. It fits like a comfortable glove. The material and construction of the jacket is top notch and it is even cooler looking on than in the picture. I don't usually say a whole lot in these product feedback/customer review sections but I was so pleased with this purchase that I had to share!

Gean C. from GALLITZIN, PA:
Had this jacket for a couple of weeks now. Its a really nice looking jacket. It has excellant padding and elbow, shoulder and back armor. I read its waterproof but I havn't tried it yet. I only have two complaints on this jacket. One its really hot and doesn't ventilate well. I used it on an 85 degree day and I just couln't stand it I had to take it off and put it in my saddlebag. I could wear my old mesh coat when temps got this high. The second thing is the liner only provides warmth for the torso. It has no sleeves. Even though I still like this jacket I just won't use it on hot days. Fits great.

This jacket fits great! I like the adjustable waste and vents. I get lots of compliments on the way it looks. Kinda like Batman! lol Ventilation is great around the body but your arms will sweat. At first I thought it kinda rubbed against the helmet when I turned my head but I got used to it. It could definately use some reflective pinstripes or something. For the price... it's a great deal!!! I wouldn't expect it to protect me at super high speeds though but for normal riding, I'm happy.

This jacket is awesome. On Friday the 13 of april I got into an accident and this jacket mightve saved me. The only downside is it was so form fitted to me the fire dept had to cut it off and it had just arrived the day before! Good jacket and good protection. I put it to the test and know frm experience it works. Now just gotta wait for it to come back into stock. Thanx leather up! Imma be getting another very soon.
