AGV Sport Canyon Perforated Leather Jacket
Don't let the low price fool you!
I bought this jacket with low expectations and it has completely blown me away. For the price you cannot beat it, before deciding on this jacket I looked at plenty of other jackets ranging from $150-$800 and this one was the best decision for me. One thing I'm not a fan of when it comes to moto gear is the gaudy branding on every panel of the jacket. I get that some people want others to know they spent $800 on an a "brand name" jacket, but I wanted something understated and comfortable, and I got exactly that with this jacket. Have not crash tested this yet (and hope not too) but I have no doubt it will hold-up in a crash. I've also been very happy with the quality (only 1 loose thread even after 1+ month of daily wear, have bumped my shoulder into many different surfaces and not even 1 scratch on the leather, broke in quickly and comfortably, high quality ykk zippers,...) Overall I would highly recommend this jacket to anyone who wants a comfortable, understated, high quality, and extremely affordable jacket.

Decent leather jacket for the money
Pretty stiff out the box but starts to break in slowly. Feels solid and strong. Heavy on a hanger but not bad when on and out riding.

great jacket for price
This is not a $500+ jacket, so if that's what your looking for spend the money on it. This is a very nice $200 jacket for all around riding. It is not a race jacket, and has not business on the track. it is great for mountain carving and vents pretty well fo ra black leather jacket. the fit is pretty close to the size, but it is a little slim. if you plan to layer, go up a size.

This jacket is quite comfortable and feels incredibly durable with good quality leather. The armor in the elbows, shoulders, and back is an added bonus.
Airflow is decent. Opening the front and rear vents allows airflow in the torso area, and the perforations in the sleeves keep the arms cool (as long as you're moving). I live down in the deep south where it's hot and humid and haven't had any problems with it.
The fit is snug. I'm 6' 1", my chest measures 37.5 inches and my arms measure 36" from the middle of my back. I ended up trying both the size 40 and the 42. The arm length was about the same for both. The 40 was snug around my chest, and the torso seemed a little short (not overly so though). The 42 fit better for the length, and fit better around the chest when I was standing. However, in riding position, the chest bunched up a bit. I went with the 40, and the slim look fits me I think.
The side pockets are a little shallow (so I haven't really used them), but there are two different inside pockets on the left hand side. One is smaller, and easily fits a knife clipped to it (Spyderco Endura, 3.5 inch blade). The larger one fits my wallet and a couple wrenches with ample room to spare, and it zips up.
Overall I think it's a great jacket. Quite comfortable, airflow is good enough for me, and it feels like it would do a good job in the unfortunate event of a crash. Definitely would buy again.
