AGV Sport Laguna Leather Jacket
Excellent comfort and protection
This is one amazing Jacket, The feel of it is great, and I feel so much more protected compared to other jackets like your typical Joe Rocket. It breaths great, but I'm not sure I'd use it in 90 degree weather or higher. I live in the DC Area and traffic congestion is always a problem, so at that temperature with no ventilation it would surely be a sweat box. I personally feel that more chest protection and back protection could be added, but I'm a sucker for safety. I'm 6'1 and weigh almost 185lbs with a fairly skinny/athletic figure. The arms fit me well and the jacket overall fits pretty snug. For the overall protection value I get from this jacket I honestly believe that not many more can compare. So far I've only rode about 400 miles in it and the stitching has held up great. It may be too early to say but I would definitely purchase this item again.

Unbeatable bang for the buck
In my opinion (which matters at least in this review) this is BY FAR the best "bang for the buck" motorcycle gear in the world. I have way too many jackets for any clever explanation, not to mention other gear, of which some i haven't even had on yet (oh boy, now thinking about it, i guess i'm like a woman with clothes!) and this is simply the best jacket for the price. I can compare it to Dainese and A* jackets i have which cost HUNDREDS more than this thing and that's amazing. I honestly recommend it

Amazing for supersport bikes
The jacket not only looks great but flows a lot of air (which is easily blocked off with the liner). The jacket does fit very snug. In the upright position this jacket is restricting, but its not meant to wear to ballet lessons, anyway. In the race/tuck position it's absolutely amazing. It just feels right. It has lots of armor and protection. I'm 185 lbs 5feet 10 inches and the 42 fits just right. If you want a looser fit you could go a size up, but personally i don't think thats what the jacket was intended for. It's a more race track or spirited street riding jacket for bikes with a slightly aggressive riding posture. The hump helps air flow and isn't too big. I was skeptical about a race hump for street riding being overkill, but it isn't too conspicuous and adds to the look as well.

Great Jacket for the Price
You can't beat this jacket for the price. It features all the race ready features you would want and need on race day.. The perforated leather flows a good amount of air and the hump in the back will too if you are in the tuck position. I would not recommend this jacket if it is a really hot day 95 deg F and above, if not in the tuck position due to the fact it is just to hot and flow will be restricted to the hump. So your chest will be dry but your back will be soaked with sweat. But this is a race jacket and is well built for that purpose.
As far as the fit it is nice and snug to the body, a little tricky to put on when you first get it but the more you wear it the leather will start to contour and take to your shape more. The zippers are top of the line which are always a plus you don't want to be worrying about a zipper coming undone when it's race day.
If you could not guess it I am very pleased with my purchase and the Revzilla made it great and easy. Thanks you guys

Excellent comfort, features and protection for the price!
I've had this jacket for about a month now. The quality is top notch and the included features are incredible at this price point. Perforated leather for airflow, vents in shoulders and back hump, safety stitched, foam padding in chest and back, accordion stretch panels behind the shoulders, race-level armor in the shoulders and elbows, and titanium sliders in the shoulders. Plus you have the option for a small zip connector or full circumference connection to pants - perfect for hitting the twisties or attending a track day.
If you are concerned about leather in the heat of summer, this jacket flows a ton of air. You will warm up at stops but cool quickly as you start moving again. On cooler spring days you may want to consider layering underneath as the jacket won't keep you warm.
As for fit, the jacket fits to size. I measured at 44 and ordered a 44. It is a snug race-style fit around the arms, chest, shoulders and waist. I am average build: 44 chest, 36 waist, 5'10", 180 lbs, and as the previous review indicated upper arm (bi/tri) circumference of 14". The protective components stay where they need to be without cinching straps like you see on the mesh and textile jackets.
Overall I am very pleased with this jacket. It fits great, looks great, and offers stellar protection. It does make you look better than you would otherwise, always an added benefit!

Perfection in Sport Riding Jacket
The jacket fits very close. I ordered the size 44 according to my measurements and the AGV Sport sizing chart. I am 6' 1", long torso and short arm for my height. My build is average. My waist is 38, chest 40, shoulders 50, arm (shoulder to cuff) 23. The jacket hugs my shoulders and fits snug on my arms (upper arm 14" diam). Waist is plenty adjustable- I have drawn it up a little.
With its race snug fit, the AGV Laguna requires more effort to put on than an ordinary jacket and being brand new leather, it is a little awkward to take off. Front zipped, vest liner in and standing up straight, the AGV Laguna fits tight across the chest and comparatively loose in the back. In the sport riding position, it is sheer perfection for me. A perfect fit is what I was looking for and I doubt I could have done much better if it were personally tailored.
Looks great. The design makes my physique look better than I am. The blue is a lot darker and more of a purple blue than the pics seem to indicate. Some details you only see up close: thin, plastic skids on chest and elbow. Light grey reflective piping on abdomen and across shoulder. Large AGV Sport Logo inside of liner. I love the fact that they took the trouble to put the tiny AGV Sport logo on the shoulder vents.
