AGV Sport Canyon Perforated Leather Jacket
Good, but could use improvements
I've given this jacket about two months before I did a review. First of all, it's a nice jacket, I overall like it. It flows air well, gives me good protection, fits alright, and overall a good, cheap jacket that is definitely more than you pay for.
First, the good. It's cheap, good protection, mostly comfortable, and has great airflow. This jacket is great for the price, at nearly $200 it's a solid, leather jacket. It gives good protection and is not ridiculously colored like most sport bike jackets, and is not studded everywhere like many cruiser jackets. It's the perfect, subdued jacket. It flows enough air, but not necessarily a lot, and gets hot over 85 and unbearable at nearly 100. It's also mostly comfortable, it's not a problem to wear I just have a couple gripes about the styling.
The bad. First, I'm 6'2" and about 210 lbs. I one of those that is skinny until I take my shirt off, then I look slightly overweight, if that makes sense. Anyways, I have broad shoulders, about 44/45" chest, so I ordered the XL. It fits alright. The chest is great, the sleeves are perfect, HOWEVER, my biggest issue is the length. It is too short for me. It falls too short and above my belt line. This translates to slightly lifting up when I'm riding and that annoys me to no end. Not only that, the shoulder width is fine but there isn't much room other than that.I could not fit anything other than a tshirt under this jacket without discomfort. It flows enough air, but after 85 you better have some kind of moisture wicking shirt on underneath or else there will be lots of sweat stains. The arms flow A TON of air, but the body section of the jacket needs more airflow.
All around it's a great jacket, I would probably get a size larger than I already did, but that would be too long in the arms I'm afraid. All in all it's a great jacket at a good price, and I would definitely buy it again. But get a textile jacket for the hotter months.

Other reviews helped with sizing
First genuine motorcycle jacket I’ve bought. Fits snug but is very comfortable while riding.

Great leather protection/quality for the $$$
For the price, this jacket is hard to beat if you are looking for a leather jacket with built in armor. The warmest I have ridden in it so far is about 85F. Warm at stops, fine at speed. Decent ventilation on the arms. The two small vents on either side of the chest to not seem to move too much air. I can wear it year round here in Southern California, but I did have to augment the very thin removable liner with some beefier base layers on the colder mornings. When its cold, you do feel the ventilation, so I know its there when things warm up. I upgraded the back protection since it comes with just a thing foam space holder. Arm and shoulder protection is good. Quality seems to be very solid and I do not anticipate any issues with seems, zippers, etc i the near future. I took Anthony's suggestion and got it true to sizing and it felt snug at first, but I realize it should feel this way and it will stretch about 10% with wear.

Quality, Style at a great price
I will preface this review by saying this is my first motorcycle jacket. The quality of this jacket is very good, thick leather, zipper and seems are all good. The perforation works well to allow ample air flow through the jacket and with the additional zipper vents you can get air flowing in all key areas. I will tell you that that the warmest day I've ridden in this jacket so far was 80 degrees so not sure how it will feel when the heat really kicks in. The fit of this jacket, in my opinion is a little snug in the waist. I'm 5'8" 170 lbs, 33 waist, purchased a 42. Could just be that I'm not the young buck that I used to be! I've also taken out the elbow armour. It wasn't uncomfortable, but I never felt like they were "high" enough on the arm. I may end up putting them back in, not a big deal. Overall the jacket looks great and functions the way I hoped.

A great looking value for the fit rider.
This coat is an excellent value considering what it offers. It’s moderately aggressive styling provides the protection that you need when riding. The protection is kept in place by the relatively tight fit at shoulders and elbows. Note that a back pad is not included. The sleeve zippers slide well and enhance the protection by fitting the coat to the wrists when zipped closed. It includes a zip out liner which seems to give me about another 10-15 degrees of riding. The cooling vents on the front offer some heat relief and can be opened or closed while riding; the rear vents … not so much. I’ve ridden with this coat in 40-70 degrees relatively comfortably. Above 70 degrees I’m sweating at every stoplight; below 40 I’m starting to shiver. A final note on the pockets; the jacket is meant to be fitted and anything in a packet bulges and sometimes digs into the body. Enjoy!
