AGV Sport Mission Textile Jacket
Good jacket for the price
This jacket is pretty warm for cool morning commutes if you leave in the waterproof liner in and zip up the vents. If it's warm out, take out the liner and open up the MASSIVE vents and you will not be hot in this jacket. With all pads and liner in, the jacket feels a little tight. I normally wear a large long sleeve shirt, so I bought a large, following the recommendation of the video review.

First Motorcycle Jacket
As to having nothing else to compare to, this is a fantastic jacket. Faired well during the first cold rides of the year. Not sure how it will perform in the summer though. The fit in the shoulder and arms was good, but the bottom of the jacket stays way above my beltline. I don't know if they are supposed to fit like that, but the is the only problem so far!

Arms way too small
I used the sizing chart before ordering, but the jacket I received was still too small. I'm normally a 44 sports jacket, and measured 44 inches with a tape. I ordered the Large which was supposed to be 46-48, but it was still too small. I don't think I will order the next size up because the arms were extremely small, even with the liner and armor removed.
I like the jacket's features and style, but it seemed like it was more of a women's cut.

Awesome jacket at an awesome price!
This is a great jacket for summer and winter riding. Very comfortable and awesome looking. I bought this jacket in the summer when it was hot for riding and with the liner out and the vents zipped open there was a lot of ventilation. It was not too hot and still provided good protection with leather areas and pads on the shoulders and elbows. And with the liner in the jacket and the vents zipped up it kept all the wind out and has kept me nice and warm in cold weather. It has a few convenient pockets and one with a headphone slot which is nice for using headphones under a helmet. Overall great jacket from a great brand at an unbeatable price!

Can't beat the price
I have only worn this for about 300 miles, but so far so good.
Design and cut, I like the look of the leather shoulders and elbows, Not sure how well they work but cool design
Fit and finish look good and feel fine, no problem with zippers or loose thread
Waterproof - Rode a half hour in a downpour, I was dry. Jacket soaked up water, especially in the leather areas. But I was dry. I am going to spray the leather areas to see if that helps.
Could be a little longer in the back
I wish it had a zipper to attach to pants will see if AGV will sell me one
Need to upgrade back protection
Over all very pleased with AGV and Revzilla

I like the style of the jacket. The color is just what I wanted to be seen by other motorist.

Awesome Jacket- the bells and whistles need work
Let's start off with the bad:
The rear-right vent lower zipper pull snapped off when I was trying to zip the vent open. No unreasonable force was applied.
The front-right zipper is well and truly stuck, no matter how herculean my tugging on it gets.
Fortunately, in both cases, this problem can simply be side-stepped, since all the vents have a zipper at the top and at the bottom- if one fails, just use the other.
My only other issue so far: there are fabric loops sewed into the jacket in strategic locations for locking the liner to the shell. One of the two loops in the right sleve has ripped out on me when I was trying to get out of the jacket- that's probably my fault, though. I might be between a medium and a large by the manufacturers recommendations, but I really should have known that I was a large.
With all that out of the way, every issue that I've had with the jacket has been circumventable, and the parts that really matter are really good. The jacket is of good solid construction (I've yet to go down, thankfully, but I doubt it would fail to save my limbs in a crash) and the hi-vis yellow is extraordinarily visible. I get comments on it wherever I go. The black "leather" accents come across quite nicely on this jacket.
I don't think the leather is really leather. But that's a good thing! because of this, the jacket is very adaptable. I got it at the start of the season (and my start to the season might be earlier than others- when the snow is off the ground, it's warm enough). With the liner in and vents closed off, it's comfortable to ride around through a drizzle-y, fifty five degrees cold day. On the other end of the spectrum, once you open up the vents, air flow will keep you cool all the way through (as I've experienced it, I haven't gotten to go higher yet) a heat index of 95.
In short, this jacket has the base-line protection that entering riders want, the coloration that I so adore, and the parts that actually matter are really good- it just needs a little finishing yet on the moving parts.
Get it in hi-vis!

Great for the Dollar
Been using this jacket for about 2,000 miles now. Has held up very well and the large vents provide great air flow during the summer.
