L. from OCEANSIDE, CA:
got this jacked in march ride to work everyday. the zippers on the rain protections do not work any more and the zippers on the mesh stopped working also. the jacked pants compo keeps warm, dry and protected, but if the zippers keep on breaking then the jacket will be useless.

James S. from STONE MTN, GA:
I ordered my true size, xl, and had to return it as it was too small. Order up in size. The jacket was well made and had a lot of features. With the armor, the jacket was a bit too heavy for my liking, but most armored jackets are going to be on the heavy side. Will reorder from Leatherup but a different style. Their products are always high quality at great prices!!

Jeffrey R. from WILMINGTON, IL:
This is my 2nd Xelement jacket first one is leather. Both I did one size up from what the fit guide says. I'm 5'9" 165 lbs a little wide in the chest and found the large to be a good fit. With the waterproof liner and the quilted liner I do loosen up the side straps. I'm not a real fan of the main zipper. It can sip from either the top or bottom and sometimes have to jiggle it to zip evenly. With both liners there are a lot of pockets but with just the mesh jacket there are just the 2 side zipper, one inside left chest and the 2 outer chests which are on the smaller size, just able to get a smart phone in it. They are all lined which makes it nice when running into unexpected rain. The mesh is a great feature especially on the 88 degree days we've had in Illinois. Even rode when it got down to 68 just tightened up the sleeves and it reduced the air flow. I do have a windshield which helps too. The only other minor compliant is the padding seams a bit bulky but I'm sure if I went down I wouldn't complain. I had left the jacket on the bike during a downpour so it was soaked inside and out including the pads. I popped in the rain liner to keep the wetness off and in about 15 minutes of riding with a windshield all was dry. Removed the rain liner and on my vented way. Would definitely recommend the jacket and Leather Up.

Richard G. from TEHACHAPI, CA:
Ordered a large mostly due to sleeve length, as I'm 6'1" at 175lbs. The fit was very good and sleeve length about right. I rode on a cold CA morning, approx. 45 degrees and it was comfortable. Some air did go up the sleeves as I had on fair weather gloves. Did not wear my heated vest as I normally would with my leather MC jacket to see how the jacket did, and I believe that the heated vest is no longer needed. The following morning with temps around 50 degrees, I wore only the inner liners of the jacket with my vest over the liners and again was comfortable to the days ride. I am very happy with this jacket even though it is not a true MC jacket, but it looks and functions the way I need it to at 61 yrs. old. These old bones feel the cold more then they used to. Overall very satisfied with the jackets performance and fit. Tried a medium first but just a bit too small in the frame, and sleeves were definitely too short for me. Have ordered many things from LeatherUp and have not been let down yet. Next is a pair of overpants to replace my leather chaps.

John W S. from Lakewood, CO:
Just received jacket and felt a rating should be given even before use. I separated the jacket layers very carefully and one of the jacket zippers still broke. The outer jactet looks good and the fit is perfet. Detaching the layers gave me the feeling the snaps should not be re-used. I plan on using the layers unattached to each other. I went to the Xelement web site and you are paying the suggested retail price. I will keep it but I would NOT recommend it to anyone.

Don Z. from ENTERPRISE, KS:
I bought this jacket because it says "ALL SEASON" I rode 77 miles to a doctor appointment this morning at 38 degrees, torso was fine but arms were cold, wind goes right through it , stopped and put a sweatshirt , then wasn't to bad . still feel the cold through the sleeve. The cuffs were pulled tight and I wear gauntlet gloves so the cold was not going up the sleeve. Was going to exchange it for a same price coat but since I wore it , it's not returnable.. Items like this I will buy directly from the store . Every other item I bought from leatherup has been fine .. Would not recommend this coat for cold weather.

Great buy! Fit and finish is very good and the level of options is great too. If your looking for a jacket that offers warmth, style...and is more then reasonably priced...look no further. I'm 5'7" 185 and ordered a large...fits perfect.

David B. from VERNON, VT:
Have worn the Jacket in the 80"s and in the 50" and it's very comfortable. Has lots of features and the fit is great. Will wear this jacket well into fall in the northeast but it's not too hot on warm days either.

Harry T. from LINCOLNTON, NC:
Nice and heavy. The entire jacket is basically all mesh. Has a little vest as well as a waterproof liner. With out the water proof liner the jacket is very breathable. Like not wearing a jacket at all. Very comfortable. But that liner in and it turns into a sauna. No water in, no water out. I took it out. I don't ride in the rain anyhow. I am 5'11" and 230lbs. XL fit very well and my wife even said it makes me look thinner.

Purchased as gift... he really likes it, but had a little trouble finding one that fit, which allowed me to experience the no hassle return/exchange process too! Definitely a great place for quality motorcycle gear!

BRIAN L. from LEESVILLE, SC:
Purchased a two layer "Xelement Men's CF-626 Armored Race Motorcycle Jacket" a year ago for 79.95. That jacket was warmer than this four layer jacket. Only reason I wanted a new jacket was due to buying a different color bike. The arms are much colder on this jacket. One of the arm strap snaps pulled loose the first time I tried to unsnap it. It did a great job of keeping me dry in the rain though. Should be a good summer bike with the two linings out.

James H. from WIGGINS, MS:
Decent jacket for the price. My wife is currently resewing the liner as it is coming apart at the seams. Also reattaching the loops that hold the liner in the sleeves. Other than that no problems so far. Of course, It's only been a couple of weeks.

Gregory U. from Venice, CA:
I'm 6', 185lbs. and broad shouldered and went with a Large based on Leather Up's telephone sales person. I ordered on a Friday late morning and the jacket arrived the next afternoon. The jacket fits me a bit awkwardly compared to a much higher end jacket a friend lent me while I shopped around. It's a little bit big around the middle. The elbow pads everyone complains about seem like they're in the right place for me. The bulk of the pad rides forward of the elbow on the lower part of the upper forearm which is exactly where you want it to be if you take a spill. I'm in Southern California and recently experienced 90F weather. The shell by itself was really cool and well ventilated and I felt protected by the armor. Temps got into the 60's at night and the quilted interior vest and waterproof layer kept me comfortable. My only pet peeve is that you are unable to use just the jacket and quilted vest. You must use all three layers or just the shell. You can make it work by turning the quilted vest inside out but this seems like a workaround. All in all I'm very satisfied with Leather Up and my purchase. I would definitely order it again from these guys.

Omar S. from LOUISVILLE, KY:
I am 5'11, 190lbs, 34" waist. This is a great jacket. It has two removable internal liners (one water proof) that I immediately removed. I also removed the removable armor. The built in armor is oddly placed as other reviewers have mentioned. The mesh is very breathable when moving but as you can imagine gets very hot when stopping for more than about 10 seconds. Pockets are very small so don't plan on carrying anything other than wallet, keys, and phone. The sleeves are a little long but otherwise this jacket is exactly what I wanted and exactly as described. I think it will serve a good 3 season jacket (will probably need the liners and a sweatshirt underneath for fall. For the price I think it's a super purchase.

Tim O. from LONGMONT, CO:
Ordered small, fits well (I'm 5'9 170lbs, 34" waist) except that the arms are a bit long and the armor on the elbows is almost not protecting my elbows). If you are any shorter than me, I don't know if the elbow armor would do anything except protect your forearms. First one I ordered had the sewn-in liner twisted making in near impossible to put my arm through the sleeve, but leather-up exchanged it for me for a non-defective jacket. Both jackets had awkward zippers. Sometimes they work the first try, but I've struggled (sweating like crazy in the heat) for 10 minutes to get the zipper to start. The trick seems to be applying an outward pressure on the zipper when starting it so that it lifts a tiny burr (not sure if it this is a defect or engineered 'feature', but it existed on both jackets) out of the way and lets the zipper start. The zipper seems to get better with use (or maybe practice). The jacket keeps me quite cool while moving, and baking when waiting at a red-light. Sweating while at red-lights in Colorado, followed by going up in the mountains (temp dropping 5 degrees, and being in the shadows) actually can make you downright cold even though it's 80 degrees until the sweat finished evaporating. The mesh acts like a nice evaporative cooler. Quality seems acceptable, and considering the price, I'm happy

John H. from Morehead, KY:
Great jacket. No puff up, you don't feel the wind beating on you just a nice breeze thru the jacket. Bad thing is it is black and if not moving it gets hot, I have ordered a silver jacket. My measurement was around the shoulders not just chest and I got perfect fit.

AJ M. from WELLINGTON, KS:
I ordered an XL for my chest measurement of 49", and it fits perfectly. Looks good, is (pleasantly) cooler than expected for hot weather riding. Jacket weighs quite a bit. Sometimes have a little trouble getting it unzipped. Good jacket, especially for the money. I would recommend it.
