Fredric F. from Woodstock, GA:
Great summer jacket with armor in all the right places. The fit was spot on. I have a 40" chest and 32" waist ...5'7" tall and 160 lbs. I ordered the small. Very comfortable. I wore it on a warm day with a regular t-shirt and long sleeve t-shirt over that as it was cooler in the day. I think with warmer weather this will be a t-shirt only kind of jacket.

Frank S. from Powdersville , SC:
Jacket is true to size. I am 150 5'4" and the Med fits perfect. This is a hot weather jacket and meant for protection in hot weather. I ware a short sleeve T on the 85 and above days and a long sleeve T on the below 85 days. Wind will rush through the mesh outer shell to keep you cool. As the days cool off I will have to switch to a warmer jacket. This is not meant to be worn over a sweatshirt or other heavy outer garment. If you try then you will rate it as to small and not to size. The only drawback is the lack of a collar snap. I like to zip it all the way up on cooler rides but this gives little protection on the collar. Dont ride a night so cannot comment on the reflective trim but looks great.

I received the jacket very fast and the fit was perfect. I followed everyones advice and bought one size larger than my regular fit. I also used the fit guide provided and corretaed the two. Very nice jacket and for the money, it's fantastic.

I've worn it in temps nearing 100 and it's as comfortable as can be expected on a hot day. Can't wait for fall temps, so I can really enjoy it. I like everything about the jacket. Especially the price!

I LOVE this jacket. I took the recommendation to get the next size up. It fits perfect. And, it "Breathes". Amazing to ride in a jacket for protection and not sweat to death. I highly recommend it.

I have worn this jacket in over 90 degree weather and not broken a sweat. It breathes very well and still has the armor just in case something happens.

Great jacket for price. I was wearing it n low 70 degree weather and was a little chilled. Very nice for hot days. Feels like you are not wearing anything when mobile, and offers protections with armor and padding. Order 1 size larger

Paul W. from LAS VEGAS, NV:
I love the jacket. It is very comfortable and works really well in the heat. I can ride during the summer without dying of heat stroke and still feel protected. The only thing I don't like about the jacket is the lining on the inside of the sleeve is starting to fall apart. It is like the mesh is being shreaded when I ride, maybe rubbing against my glove or watch.

Awesome value. Works great, You can ride in 90 degree weather and it keeps the sun off of your arms while providing air flow to keep you cool. Plus the added benefit of lightweight armor. Should have bought this years ago!

Jonathan D. from CLINTON, MD:
Great, breezy, summer jacket. It may not be waterproof, but it does keep you warm even when riding wet. I felt comfortable, even warm, riding in the rain at speeds under 30mph. Once the rain let up, the jacket and my shirt dried out quickly. If you have a bit of a gut, order a size up. I wear 2XL, I ordered a 3XL and it fits perfectly, covering everything. The jacket arm buckles really made this secure on me and kept the elbow protectors in place.

Allan B. from BELLEVIEW, FL:
Great jacket! I love the light weight and good fit. The two outside zippered pockets and the velcro closure inside pocket are secure enought for a wallet, change, sunglasses or any other small items that you would like to carry with confidence. The velcro closures at the waist and cuffs allow for a good range of adjustment, as do the elastic and snaps on the sleeves. I also like the reflective piping in the seams which makes the jacket very visible at night. The level 3 armor seems very substantial. I found the back armor to be slightly thinner than some other jackets I have seen, but this may have been done to reduce weight and increase flexibility, making it less bulky and more comfortable. I have worn this on hot days and I have to say it doesn't feel any different to riding in a tee shirt. For me I find that any piece of protective equipment is only good if you wear it and that means its got to be comfortable. This one seems to fit the bill, especially at this price point. I have a much more expensive jacket that spends most of its life hanging in the closet because its too heavy and too hot. Since I recieved this one, I wear it every time I ride. Nice product, great price.

Regina D. from MAGNOLIA, TX:
I ordered this jacket for my husband. I ordered the pink and black one for myself. His jacket fits great. He's about 5 feet 11 and about 195 pounds. I ordered the xl and it fits perfectly. We live near Houston.TX. The weather hasn't gotten very hot yet. But it has been around 70 to close to 80. We've worn it then and it's kept us nice and cool. I order from leather up frequently and I'm always happy with my purchases!

My sexy V shape body does not allow me to wear American Eagle Outfitters clothes because those are not made for real AMERICAN MEN, they are for Euro's and ladyboys. This jacket is awesome.....got get yours.

Doris B. from Douglasville, GA:
I bought this jacket for my husband and he really likes how lightweight, comfy and cool it is. However, one of the snaps on the arm adjustments broke loose from the material on the very first day he wore it. He was able to repair the snap with some pliers but that was a little disturbing for a brand new jacket. Regardless, I'm sure we will get our moneys worth from the jacket as the price was extremely reasonable.

This jacket is perfect for hot summer weather when wearing a leather jacket is just too hot. Doesn't look like it would be cool, but it is. I usually wear XL, but ordered a XXL and it fit fine. I have long arms and the sleeves were plenty long enough. Great price for a nice cool jacket

Robert K. from HINGHAM, MA:
Great jacket for the money, this is the second jacket I got from Leather Up. The first one was also great. The only thing complaint I would have is, the inside pocket has a velcro closing system. It seem that the piece sewn on to the pocket flat always sticks to the mesh lining. I can see where this will over time will start to fray the liner. I'm considering removing it. Everything else is top knotch, worth twice the cost. Great jacket for those summer rides.

Jerry T. from BELLINGHAM, WA:
Bought this jacket for the mech type, I put it on in 80 deg heat and had my doubts about the effectiveness to keep my cool when riding. As soon as I took off it was like instant cooling I rode all day with it on even when the weather got up to 90* very good jacket for the price, my only complaint would be is the material seams kind of chintzy and I would hate to snag it on something and rip it. The armor seams to be good, I've had other jacks made by the same Xelement brand. Jacket is lightweight, and easy to wear.

Can't beat this how weather mesh jacket for the price, just wish they had them in all grey or other lighter color. Plenty of adjustability, decent armor and great airflow for cooler riding in our hundred degree weather. Also purchase a similar one for grandson, who loves his and even wears it when he isn't riding.

Heather K. from CHESAPEAKE, VA:
Jacket fits well, and the armor is well placed. The material inside the jacket is a little bit scratchy on the skin, but not overly uncomfortable. I like the fit in the back of the jacket where it drops down to cover more of the lower back. There are quite a few snaps to customize the fit of the jacket that make it worth the money. The entire jacket does breathe, so wearing it on a chilly day may not be the best plan, but with warmer weather it is great.

William B. from LITTLE ROCK, AR:
I bought this jacket in anticipation for summer riding here in the South. I've been wearing a denim jacket and as long as I was moving I didn't over heat. But there was no armor and I'm getting increasingly paranoid about road rash as I get older. I have an Xelement riding jacket foe Fall, Winter, and Spring and have been very pleased with it. The mesh version seems to be equally well made and after experimenting with it on the few warm gays we've had, it seems to breathe very well. I'm 6'2" and 225. The XL fits perfectly

I bought this jacket because I wanted some extra protection when I am riding in warm weather, and in Florida that is ten months of the year. It arrived in record time and I was thrilled to put it on. I have long arms and have bought jackets in the past that were simply not long enough there. This fit perfectly (I am 6'3" 200 lbs with 35 inch sleeve). I would definitely recommend it to others and the price was outstanding. I have bought from Leatherup before and have never been disappointed.

Richard D F. from Goldsboro, NC:
October 2, 2013 Richard F. from Goldsboro, NC On Sunday 07/14/2013 I was involved in an accident...5 broken ribs, broken collar bone, and a broken thumb, not to mention road rash. I purchased the Men CF-511 after reading some of the reviews from other NC riders, and got it at the same time my bike was getting out of the repair shop. Can't believe it I wore the Jacket for the first time in 90 degree HEAT, and I felt cool with the breeze that came through the Jacket. The Jacket keeps the direct sunlight off your skin and you are actually cooler with the Jacket on than without it. I only wish I was wearing it on 07/14/2013. I know diehard Harley riders want to be in shirt sleeves, however after you experienced road rash that will change. This Jacket the Xelement CF-511 is a great product for the price and I'd recommend it to anyone riding a cycle.

On Sunday 09/22/2013 I was involved in and accident. A driver slammed on her brakes in front of me and I had to drop my bike to avoid rear ending her. I was wearing my: Xelement Men's CF-511 Mesh Sports Armored Motorcycle Jacket Xelement Men's Classic Fit Denim Motorcycle Racing Pants Xelement-Mens-Leather-Protective-Padded-Racing-Gloves THE GEAR I WAS WEARING SAVED MY LIFE !!! When I had to drop my bike I rolled 6-7 times on the road and the jeans didn't even tear. Now the jacket is toast, but my insurance co. is going to get me another one. I went home instead of staying in the Hospital. All I got was a fractured knee and some nasty scrapes on my elbow. I am alive thanks to the Xelement gear I was wearing.
