AGV Sport Dragon Leather Jacket
Well Priced Leather Jacket
I got this jacket along with the AGV Sport Willow pants for a price effective two piece suit to use for spirited riding and for my first track day season. (My local org allows two piece suits for beginner and intermediate groups). The pant jacket combo fit together perfectly right out of the box.
The Jacket itself is great for the price. Great protection, nice style, and fits exactly as the size chart says it will.
A few points I've noted below:
It's a warm jacket. I've only had it out in 70 deg weather so far and it was great but I feel when it gets hotter I'm gonna be sweating, but then again its not perforated so that's what I was expecting. When riding at speed though the vents push a lot of air which will help in warmer temps
The cuffs are not the most comfortable thing in the world. My wrists seem to be scratching on some of the stitching. I might try to get some neoprene sown into the cuffs to improve comfort.
I would say the sleeves are on the long side of the spectrum. For a guy like me (height 6'2", waist 36", chest 42") the size 44 was perfect.
Overall this a great jacket and I highly recommend you pick one up while they are still available.

Lets be real here, leather anything can get pricey! The fit is snug, and it definitely keeps you warm in the cold.. I ride in Denver, the evening can be brutal at times, but this jack definitely holds its end keeping me warm. We're just hitting the 60s 70s, so I can't honestly say how breathable it'll be in the warmer days.. But why look for leather to keep you cool in the summer right? Textiles or Mesh type jackets would probably be more suitable lol

Get one while they last.
Although these jackets are about out of stock all across the board, you can still get your hands on one if you look close. I wanted a full leather non perf jacket. No neoprene panels under the under side of the arms that are nice in summer but cold in winter. I wanted the jacket to zip to my willow pants. The Dragon jacket DID NOT zip to the willow pants. I had to cut off the zippers on the jacket and sow the upper half of pant zipper to jacket. I stitched it up myself and holds perfectly. I have 2 jackets that are between 380-400$, and this 240$ AGVsport Dragon jacket. The jacket is very thick leather and should soften up after a few wears and a few leather conditioning treatments. You can certainly tell this jacket is not a 400$ jacket when you're inside it. For a 240$ jacket though, you can't beat this jacket and pant combo.

Great leather jacket that offers great protection!
I love this jacket. I ordered a size 42 being a size 42 inch chest. It felt small and fit on like a fitted jacket. After I broke it in I was able to move around comfortably. If you plan on layering up for winter to stay warm get a size bigger. I have worn this jacket with a warm thermal and all though it felt stiff I was able to ride with little issue I still wish I was one size bigger to layer up more comfortably. This jacket provides excellent warmth during cold days for your back and chest, I did feel breeze on my arms thus wearing long sleeve shirts or a thermal which made riding in cold temperatures warm. On warmer days it gets really hot when you are stopped but air flow was excellent when you unzip your front and back zipper and felt great even at slow 25mph-30mph speeds. Quality seems very high on this jacket and after a few months of use I don't see any wear and everything is in perfect condition.

I absolutely love the style of this jacket, seems to be built solidly and cannot wait to get many years out of it. sizing is on point and i would definitely recommend to a friend.

Great price and great product. Impressed with built in protection. Either fits a little small or it is true that it should be snug so the jacket does not lift. Have received comments on how nice it looks.

Awesome protection and style
I read the reviews and really liked how this jacket looked. Am very pleased with my purchase. It feels very good from a protection standpoint. Its a leather sport jacket so expect to feel a little stiff but not anything I would not recommend anyway. Definitely upgrade to the Knox TP2 Advance X CE Back Protector to give you further protection. I am 5'6" 175lb and usually wear a 42S sport jacket and I ordered the 44 and it fit perfectly with a little room to spare. The thermal layer inside is pretty useless and I dont use it. I would say my only minor complaint is the airflow - its ok. At high speeds, I feel like a kite on my bike and feel like I am going to blow away.

Well, I just hit four hundred miles on this jacket today, and I think I've worn it enough to give it a proper review.
First, I have to say to make sure to get one size larger than you measure. I saw this recommended in a few other reviews, and they were spot on. There's just enough room to fit a hoodie or sweatshirt underneath, if it's needed. The only downside I've found are that the forearms are a little tight, especially with a hoodie or something on underneath.
Second, comfort; Once broken in, this coat is fantastically comfortable to wear on or off the bike. Feels very stiff and heavy when you first put it on, but after wearing it a bit it almost feels like a second skin.
Airflow is great, except for one issue: There is zero on your forearms, and in the sun that gets brutal. Leaving the sleeves unzipped helps a little, but a couple of zipper vents would have been great.
I've ridden the jacket without the liner in temps ranging from 55-95, and while 55 was a little chilly, and at 95 my arms kinda felt like they were burning, it was overall comfortable. I'd imagine that with the liner and maybe a hoodie I could have a warm torso riding in temps below fifty.
