Milton R. from CONCORD, CA:
If I had ordered the jacket based on size as shown on the drop-down list, I would had chosen Medium or Large; but I went by the "Size Chart", and according to it my chest measurement of 44 falls under "S". When I received the jacket and tried it on, it would not close by about 5 inches. Obviously the chart is wrong. I sent it back, and asked a Large size be shipped. I'm not happy with their return policy as it's taken seven working days for Leatherup to receive it, and will take another five working days before I get an email telling about a shipping date. I'm not happy :-(

Joseph P. from Seattle, WA:
Jacket had nice features, fit well etc. but the quality and durability was a real problem. The first time I tossed on a backpack half of the sleeve buttons just pulled right out of the fabric. Most of the things attached to the inner liner (loops and buttons for the other liners) just ripped right out with any sort of tug. After about 6 months the velcro on the wrists were just totally stripped out from daily use. I really liked the jacket for its features but after just a year of wear I need to get a new one because it's just falling apart.

Ryan H. from Philadelphia, PA:
This is a great Jacket. Plenty of pockets to carry phones and other stuff in all different sizes. IT is well ventilated, however the rain/window layer seals great. It is a high viz jacket, I don't see how a rider could be missed wearing this. IT is really reflective. Highly recommend this jacket.

Taylor Z. from LACEY, WA:
I just barely got the jacket. It fits snug (I usually wear XL and got the XXL). It shipped fast, and so far has been a great jacket for the cold morning commute and the sunny afternoons. I haven't had any problems with it and look forward to using it for a while longer. Great jacket for a great price.

Robert A. from Sedona, AZ:
The heaviest jacket I have worn. Nice looking, excellent workmanship with zippers and snaps everywhere. The quilted liner does not extend into the sleeves. The outer most shell is totally permeable to wind, but even combined with the second liner, my arms are cold. My cycle has a small windshield and no faring so the arms get blown

I really like the jacket. If you could have just one jacket this would be the one. It has three layers and in water proof. Really great jacket.

Thomas L. from ROCHESTER, MN:
This jacket is very nice for the money (and for much more money). It fits well, the snaps could be attached a bit better but that seems to be more related to the mesh shell rather than any other reason. The thermal liner does not go down the sleeves and it would be nice if they did but otherwise neither my wife nor I have any major complaints and I have ordered riding pants to go with the jackets.

Definetly a nice jacket for the price, but it is a bit heavy for SoCal most of the time, but I do recommend it!

Kyle R. from NOOKSACK, WA:
This is my first motorcycle jacket, so I based my purchase off of reviews. The Jacket fits perfect. I can wear a hoodie under it if I need to be a bit warmer. my biggest complaint with it is the adjustable sleeves. when you unsnap to tighten or loosen, there is a good chance the snap will just pull through the mesh instead of unsnapping! rather poor design there. also, the inside liner has sleeves that snap in to the outer shell's sleeves, but I already had one of the snaps rip out when pulling my arm out. I've only had this jacket for a few weeks, and would not go with this design again. cool features, but just some poors design flaws that I hope won't causes issues down the road.

Wilfredo B. from Kissimmee, FL:
At a glance the Jacket looks great however at a closer look I found a few defects and small damages. The stitching on the inner mesh lining has become undone in a few places,teh zipper male portion of the inner winter lining was ripped, and the velcro from the windbreaker gets stuck on the lining and when pulling it off well you can imagine what happens to the mesh lining. these damages are small incomparison to the over all aside from that the jacket has held up to the warm weather. and some what to the cool weather and the rain. over all i like the jacket

Steve M. from CHICAGO, IL:
Interesting on the wholesale sight from Leatherup the jacket has a list of $159.99 not $349.99. Still a lot of jacket for the money. Heavy but that can be corrected depending on how many items or liners are removed. Fit is ok, I am a large and it fits although a little diificult to put on. Probably a good value for the product.

Jay F. from Woodinville, WA:
A bit heavy but to be expected with the armor. I bought a 2xl even though i normally wear xl so i could wear a sweatshirt or sweater underneath. Glad i did. Would be too small otherwise. Comes with removable liners too. Great buy for the price.

Cliff W. from SUGAR LAND, TX:
Love this jacket. The large fits perfect like I normally wear. I wish the red was a little brighter but it's still very visible. Would buy again for sure. Great jacket for the money spent and the two inner liners (water proof & warm) make jacket great for winter and can be removed for summer.

Tim S. from Cantonment, FL:
Great jacket, but it took me 3 tries to get the fit right. I'm 6'3" and 220lbs. My chest is 46 and waist is 40, but the 4XL finally fit right. I love the zip out liners, and in Northwest Florida this time of year the morning starts in the 40's but in the afternoon it's in the 70's, so the zip outs are perfect.

Phillip B. from OLATHE, KS:
I bought the jacket because I liked the features listed, the color, and the price. It arrived earlier than I expected. I've worn it a number of time and I very pleased. The mesh allows great ventilation. It got cool one night and I used the full liner. I was surprised that it actually kept me warm along with blocking the wind. Great jacket, excellent value. I would highly recommend.

For less than a 100 bucks, considering all the features and functions..... find a better "bang for buck" jacket out there, and I'll eat your hat!

I like everything about this jacket. It fits great and is comfortable to wear most days. On really hot and humid days I don't there are any comfortable jackets. A great deal $100 for a $350 jacket!

Cory T. from RICHMOND, VA:
I recently purchased two of these jackets. The first was too small and so the second was a replacement. The liners in the first jacket were dirty and the zipper on one side was sewn in backwards. One of the side pockets in the replacement jacket had buttons missing. Geez! I took it around to see if it could fixed and everyone said it was a manufacturer error. The reflective phoslite is also very faint, not highly visible as indicated by the site. My assessment of the jacket overall is good, but watch for these minor details.

Great jacket. Too hot for me with the liners in but that is because it is August. Great ventilation and a great fit. I can see the liners being useful in the cold.

Richard V. from GENOA, OH:
I seldom rate and review items . I purchased one for my wife and myself, after looking for a long time online and at motorcycle shops. This is worth every penny. I was at first surprised at how heavy they were, even with the inserts removed. Once put on they seem to disappear, except you know by the feel you are protected. I was also surprised at how cool I felt when riding in the warm sun. I only felt overly warm when standing around but a simple unzip fixed that. I also liked being asked where I got it by strangers.

Jack C. from KEENE, NH:
Seems to be fairly well made although the first time I tried to tighten the sleeves one of the snaps pulled right off. Because I was not using that particular button I just let it go. It's dissapointing that the thermal liner is just a vest and has no sleeves. If you want to wear this jacket in colder weather, you would be better off wearing an insullated wind breaker underneith the jacket and forget about the thermal liner because even with both liners left in place, your arms will still get cold. Rode with it in eighty five degree weather also without either liner and the jacket allows a great deal of air in to keep you cool. Overall I am very satisfied with this jacket.

Steve L. from LAKE STEVENS, WA:
I was very impressed with this jacket from the minute I opened the box. It offers great protection, and even includes removable elbow, shoulder, and back insert pads. There are 2 zip-in liners. With the liners out, the jacket allows airflow through to cool you down while still offering protection. With the liners in, it provides waterproof protection and warmth. I wore this jacket the entire time during a 1,200 mile trip and it was comfortable. Well worth the price! My only gripe is that the main zipper is a little hard to operate, but I find that's typical for those 2 zipper (up/down) coats.

stan k. from HINESVILLE, GA:
I got the jacket fast!!! Fit is good,I like it, but Im only rating it a 3 due to zipper issues..very hard to get zipper lined up to work properly. I have tried several times for minituets to get it lined up!!! CRAZY..makes me look like a fool and I cant get dressed properly. After three days of riding zipper is now stuck at bottom and jacket cannot open. I must put it on and off like a sweat shirt, over my head. Im going to take it to a local shop and get zipper replaced...

Laverne H. from RED LION, PA:
I received my jacket yesterday, as always fast delivery by LeatherUp. This jacket is simply put AWESOME. Rode to work this morning with the temp around 67 degrees with all the liners in. No issues with the chilly weather on the way in and this afternoon when I rode home I removed the liners because temps were in the low 90s. It was a nice ride and the mesh kept me cool. Love the jacket and do not mind the weight. It is heavier than any other jacket I have. Worth the money ao buy it. I had a large jacket and ordered this in large. Perfrct fit.
