AGV Sport Photon Perforated Leather Jacket
Buy it, you'll love it!
I low sided at 40mph, this jacket saved my elbows and my back. I walked away unscathed! By the way, I still wear the jacket because it held up pretty darn well from the crash. no tears or cuts on the leathers at all. *boom - mind blown!*

Pretty good jacket
I am 155 lbs, as many other reviews recommended to buy 2 sizes higher than what the sizing chart gives. I did exactly so and the jacket fits perfectly.

Extremely Aggressive but AMAZING
Every rider has their own preference. I, for one, love a very aggressive jacket that hugs my arms and body like a second skin. This jacket is by far not a touring jacket. But at its price, this is an AMAZING aggressive jacket. Yes the arm length is short. Guess what, I have short arms. So it works.
I love the venting in this jacket. I ride in 90+ weather, and yes, I have to bring a second shirt to work. But while riding, this jacket causes no discomfort.
Agv sport needs to make more jackets like this one.
Super cheap. Great quality. Awesome snug/slender fit. Great venting. Throw away the liner. And have a safe and fun ride!!

I have been looking for a leather jacket for over a year now. And when I saw this one advertise I went and made the purchase. I ordered 44 thinking that my measurements were the closest to that size well that didn't do it so I returned it for a 46, still kind of snug but after major back surgery I think it will come out right. Nice feel and quality

Wanted a jacket that would provide the best level of protection and still wouldn't be astronomically priced. This jacket is perfect. The only downside would be riding in 100+ weather, leather is probably not the best choice for that regardless. Any temp above 50 and under 100 is awesome for this jacket. Sizing runs small, normally Im a size 40, and I got a 44, fits perfect. I'm 5'9" and 160 pounds.
I get compliments on the jacket everywhere I go, and plus goes awesome with my shark raw helmet!

Excellent look/style, love the jacket.
First, I would like to say I'm a new rider and have a textile/mesh jacket (Alpinestars Viper). I love that jacket, but this jacket is a whole other ball game.
FIT: I am 5'8" about 150lbs (lean but athletic). Let me start with that I used the size chart and I chanced it on a size 40. This was based on sizing of a different AGV jacket (dragon) that fits completely different. I was swimming in the dragon but in the photon 40 it was too tight. I called Revzilla and they shipped out a 42 right away! This jacket fits like a glove. The hump takes a little getting used to, but when riding it feels great. The sleeves for me go right past the wrist bone. The length of the jacket fits the way a sport motorcycle jacket should fit, slightly shorter than a regular fashion jacket.
COMFORT: I rode last night, which was around 90 degrees and about 100 in the day. I have to say without the liner, the jacket breathed well. I never felt hot, and to be honest, it almost had as much air flow as my Alpinestars jacket. I wouldn't think so, but I guess the way the jacket is designed and the aerohump helps. It does heat up if you are at a stand still in that kind of heat. I'm not brave enough to wear in the day time with sun and an additional 10 degrees. I don't know if it is just me, but I think I get less vibration wearing this jacket. I feel that with my textile/mesh jacket it catches a little wind and tugs me around. But with the photon I feel as if I am more aerodynamic as I feel "slipperier" in the air. I need to ride again, but I also feel like I get less turbulence behind the helmet. I love the jacket's look, the fit is snug but confidence inspiring, and it provides me a feeling of quality and safety.

Bang for the buck! 1 or 2 sizes smaller though...
Great leather jacket and well worth it for the leather quality and the features it has.
I would caution people to buy 2 sizes up if you have an athletic or medium size built though. I am 5'4", 160 lbs with athletic/medium size built.
I ordered size 42, and normally wear a 40. With a 42 it was quite small with all the pads. If I were racing on the track, it would be fine. However, I plan to wear it for summer commuting.
Because I'm used to wearing somewhat loose jackets, I had to remove the back protector and shoulder pads. It already has the exterior aluminum insert, and forearm/elbow pad too, not to mention the sport hump and a backpack I usually wear.
It does feel a lot more comfortable without all the pads. I should've ordered a size 44 instead, but Revzilla is sold out.
I would only complain about the length of the waist, as it does sit quite high. If you are overweight, it could be a problem trying to zip it and attach to a pair of pants.
This type of jacket may not be the style for certain body builds. It really is made for fit riders who race on the track occasionally...
