AGV Sport Laguna Textile Jacket
Outstanding 3 Seasons Jacket
I purchased this jacket for summer usage and will comment based on the different categories
Bang For Your Buck: Honestly, for under $200, unless you get something on clearance or closeout, I don't think you will get a better deal than this. For the sake of brevity, I will not repeat things here that will be written in the other categories. See below.
Style: A very stylish mesh/textile jacket that is quite sleek. Very slimming effect on the rider, love the colors and overall scheme. Nice little shoulder caps really add to the aggressive, youthful styling along with air vents in the shoulder. Foam bits adds a nice stylish touch.
Comfort: This jacket is as comfortable as they come. Elastic, stretchy fabric by the elbows allow you to move freely, various clips to loosen or tighten up the arms, waist, and wrists.
Protection and Durability: CE approved armor in the elbows and shoulders along with titanium shoulder caps. I do wish their was a CE approved backpad but for under $200, it is a rarity so can't say I'm disappointed as it is to be expected. The only reason I gave a four was because the velcro tab by the top of the zipper/collar came apart after 6 rides. I have since super glued it back together and looks like new, unnoticeable to the untrained eye.
Airflow: Man does this thing get great airflow. I rode it in 30 degree weather (Wisconsin) and it was warm enough for me during the 6 min ride it took to get to work and the liner is a complete liner; covers your entire arm and keeps you very warm and fairly well protected from the wind. While I felt comfortable in 30 degree weather, I know most will not so I will say anything over 45, this jacket and a long sleeve shirt should be suffice. Without the liner in, the wind just flows from every which direction, keeping you cool. Flows in the front, chest, arms, underarms, as well as the shoulder. Couldn't ask for anything more.
Features: This is where this jacket shines. Mesh/textile yet with the liner in, enough wind protection for cold morning or late evening rides down to 40+ degrees (32 for me). Without the liner, wind galore. Zippers and tabs everywhere to fit your particular body style including in the arms, which I have not seen in many jackets; arms of all sizes now feel more protected and fitted if you want or you can leave it a tad loose. Titanium caps on the shoulder for more protection and aesthetics, some foam added to different areas of the jacket that adds another element to the styling and another dimension to the jacket and last but not least, there are pockets. Far too many sportbike jackets do not have front pockets and I love that this one does.
Fit: I honestly feel this is a very aggressive, slim fit. It fit quite small, in my opinion. A medium in the Icon Attack Fit Overlord is the same as a medium in this one, which I found to be odd. So if you are a bit on the hefty side (5'6" 175lbs), get a size larger than normal. All the different clasps will allow you to make the jacket smaller and tighter if necessary.
A must buy for anyone who wants a mesh/textile jacket. One happy owner here

Great bang for the buck!
I bought this AGVsport Laguna textile jacket as my first piece of motorcycle gear. Being tight on money I felt this jacket was the best jacket i could afford at the time - and boy was I right. It's been almost 2 years now and I still wear it!
It is pretty comfortable, even when walking around. It is best used for Spring, Summer and Fall. Winter is a no go, even with layers.
My only criticism for this jacket it the flimsy back protector...its just 3-4mm of foam!!!...Oh well, at least you have the option of upgrading the back protector, though I'm not sure if you can upgrade the elbows or shoulders...

Great Summer Jacket
After a thorough amount of researching online, this jacket easily turned out to be the best deal out there in the context of textile, breathable mesh jackets.
The armor inspires confidence. The fit is clean and snug. The styling is aggressive. The air flow is phenomenal. The removable liner makes a world of a difference in the cold/rain.
Would definitely recommend the jacket considering it's price.

Great Jacket for the money. Very comfortable!
I'm 6 foot tall 150 lbs. I originally got the medium but the sleeves were too short so I replaced for the large. Jacket is super comfortable. Has a fair price tag for what you are getting and has a very moto gp look to it. Great air flow and comfortable to wear even on 90 degree days. Only minor cons. I wish the sleeves were still a bit longer but if you wear gauntlet gloves it wont matter. I also wish the back padding was more tough than just foam padding but again this is a $200 jacket. Not a race suit

This is a great jacket. It provides protection, while still looking cool. It has a bunch of protective items, but the back pad is not that great. It has good airflow and keeps me relatively cool riding in the heat. Overall a great product.

Most bang for your buck!
I went out for my first ride ever to Bear Mountain this past week. Thank goodness I was fully geared. Did not look through the line of a downhill left turn and dropped my bike while rolling 3 times. The titanium shoulder pads ate up most of the damage along with a minor rip to the mesh material. If it wasnt for this jacket I'd hate to wonder what my shoulder would be like now. Overall pretty happy with my purchase. It can be super hot while in standstill traffic under the sun. But once you get some speed the air flow is pretty good. THE ONLY JACKET WITH TITANIUM SHOULDER PADS AT THIS PRICE POINT!

Very pleased with this jacket!
Great jacket! I feel very protected with it. Air flow is good, but I knew I'd sacrifice some airflow for the extra protection. On cool nights I still find myself putting in the windbreaker to stay warm. Hot days(85ish so far) it fine as long as your moving. It gets a bit hot sitting, but not unbearable at all. I do find that if wearing a backpack it blocks the front vents that channel air to your back, as well as your whole back, so your back can get pretty stuffy. Overall I am super happy with this purchase!

Durable, Great price, Amazing stying and features
This was my first motorcycle jacket i have ever owned because i am a new rider just starting this riding season, i bought the blue one which goes perfectly with my 2009 SV650 SF. I am very glad i chose this jacket. The quality is amazing the styling is just great and it fits perfect. i have rode with it in relatively cold weather (low 50's) and it done great keeping the cold weather out, the inner liner is astounding and does exactly what it is supposed to. But when the weather gets warm don't worry about getting a new jacket! Because the inner liner just zips out with ease and the airflow is great for warmer riding. There is protection everywhere you look in this thing but it doesn't take away from the comfort at all. the very back is extended just slightly so you don't that annoying jacket rise up when leaning over your tank, so that's a great little feature. I absolutely love this jacket, it is a great first jacket at a great price. If i had to "nit-pick" then my only con would be that the inner liner zips and Velcros which sounds great but to me its kind of annoying to me, especially when walking into a quite building and you have the awkward moment of *slow un-velcro* *slow unzip* so maybe buttons? Or just zipper? But that's just nit-picking. Other than that i absolutely love this jacket and recommend it to anyone!
