AGV Sport Photon Perforated Leather Jacket
Great, versatile leather jacket for the price
This is a fantastic product by AGV. It is really difficult to come across a leather jacket that breathes well, has great protection, is aesthetically pleasing, and on top of that all at a decent price. AGV pulled it off with this jacket.
The jacket breathes incredibly well as you are riding. It can get a bit toasty on a hot day if you are in traffic, but as long as you are moving it keeps you cool. Of course, it is a leather jacket so it will not be too comfortable on a blistering hot day if you live in the southern states.
The jacket does run extremely small like some other reviewers have mentioned. I went two sizes up and it fits well, it is a little tight still but that's they type of jacket that it is supposed to be; it's supposed to hug your body just right so it isn't awkward or too tight so it isn't uncomfortable. I would even recommend bumping up three sizes in case you live in the northern states and want to use the jacket into late fall and wear a hoodie underneath it.
Like the video review said, you will also want to upgrade the back protector. They other armor is decent in the jacket. The jacket does feel a bit uncomfortable at first with all the armor, but it just takes some time to get used to it and for the jacket to break in.
All in all, great product and bang for your buck for comfort, protection, and looks. Definitely recommend this jacket.

This jacket is just way too sexy! hahaha, it's wayyy cheaper then other popular brands but I feel that it offers equal protection, specially the fact you are able to use forcefield armors (I haven't yet, but probably will get the back armor soon)
The fit is quite snug, I'm 5'11", 170lbs, chest 37 in, waist 34 in, i got size 40 and it fits like a glove, I need gauntlet style gloves but for now my gloves cover me well
Just rode a total of 3 hours with the jacket and it's so comfortable, the air flow is amazing, even at 150km/h (not crazy just tested it out on a practically desert road)
It's so snug that I can't really put anything in the pockets though, my cellphone stays in my pants usually, the liner really helps when the temperature goes down quite a bit at night
Overall, this jacket makes me look real good and i feel really protected!

I am about 5'9, 150 lbs, athletic build. I ordered size 40 and even though it is little tight on the arms, it fits perfect everywhere else. This jacket zips with my AGVSport Willow Perforated Leather Pants. Last weekend I lowsided on gravel and thankfully I was wearing full gear. I did not get a single scratch on my body.
I wear this jacket even on my dates and I get compliments on it. I highly recommend this because of its looks, athletic fit and protection it offers.

Extremely versatile sport jacket, runs small.
I bought this jacket due to the high level of protection it offers at an entry/mid level price point. All of the materials used on this jacket feel robust and of good quality. Call me crazy but I ride with this jacket year round. Throw a layer underneath and it will keep you quite warm. Remove the liner, open up the flank vents and you have a nice air flow up the sleeves and out the back. Now, this is no mesh jacket so don't get me wrong; you will get warm, but you wont be suffering. Overall a very versatile jacket. I'm confident it would prevent a substantial hospital bill without making me pay with sweat and tears every time I ride.
About sizing: I am 6'2 185 lbs, I measured out to fit a size 48 based on the chart. Based on what some others had said I ordered a size 50 and if fits me perfectly.

great jacket for price, run very SMALL
I measure 47" around my chest, im 6" tall, wear 34-36 waist pants. I ordered a 48 and had to send it back and get a 52! I could barely get the 48 zipped, the arms were too short, and the overall length of the jacket was short. Revzillas return policy and customer service are top notch of course. The 50 probably would have fit but would have been too tight with the liner zipped in. This jacket is a little on the short side but, is longer then the jackets that come with 2pc leathers. I wouldve given it 5stars if the sizes were more accurate, and it was about an inch longer.

Awesome jacket for the price
This is a great jacket for the price. It fits perfectly with my AGV pants making a two piece suit. The quality is great and the so are the aerodynamics. There are a couple of downsides though, the sleeves are short and Europeans must be small people because this jacket feels painted on. That said I love this jacket!

Seems Like a Good Jacket
Ordered this jacket back in October while deployed, had to wait until I got home in February to try it on. I got it and opened it up and my first impression was that it is a very well made jacket but it didn't fit so I called up Revzilla and they still let me exchange it for a new one even though I ordered it so long ago, so GREAT customer service. Can't ride with the jacket until April or May so don't have that experience yet, but build quality is nice and doesn't cost an arm and a leg like other jackets.

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!*
