AGV Sport Photon Perforated Leather Jacket
nice jacket for a small price!
Got this jacket a couple weeks ago and finally got a chance to try it out. I am 6'2 180 with a 42" chest. I got the size 42. Since I am tall, the length is a tad bit short but this is a race cut jacket so it should just come down to the top of the waist anyway. The build is excellent and solid. Hope i never have to test it in a fall but feel that if I did I would be protected. The fit was tight at first but after wearing it around the house and on a couple of rides now, it is breaking in. The armor stays put and is exactly where it should be on the shoulders, elbows,forarms. I can squeez it over a hoodie although its really tight if I do. I've gone out in about 43 degree wheather and it was a little chilly. If i would have had a hoodie underneath i would have been fine. We shall see how it handles hot wheather onece it warms up around here.....if ever. The airflow seems sufficient enough. Revzilla is awesome and their product review video's are a huge help in making a decision. This is my fourth purchase from them and definately not the last. I plan on getting a new shoei soon and new leather #alpine stars# towards fall.

Promising jacket, but fits very awkwardly
Having read reviews before purchasing, I opted to get 2 sizes larger than what I would normally purchase (size 42). Being 6' tall and 150lbs, I have a rather skinny stature. I knew I could live with a bit of extra space in the chest, but didn't want a short jacket.
Well, they came in and they were still too short. The width was the jacket was a little large, but doable. However, the length of the waist and the sleeves were too short for me. The waist didn't cover my belt line, so it looked like I was wearing a belly shirt. The sleeves didn't cover the bottom of my radius bone. Needless to say I returned for a different product immediately.
I would steer away from this particular product unless you're on the shorter side.

LIke a lot, seems short, most comfortable in 3/4-full tuck.
I chose my red jacket based on chest size. I'm 6'4", 175 lbs, 38" chest. Jacket fits absolutely perfect in the chest and shoulders for me. Chest and back vent as expected. There is little to no perforation in the forearms. Late summer riding in Arizona leaves my forearms and biceps sweaty so it can be tough to wriggle out of the jacket sometimes.
I have unusual physiology....really long arms, broad shoulders, small chest, so this jacket sits slightly short at the elbows, and even shorter at the cuffs than most of my other jackets. Gloves cover the gap, but even with full Knox Handroids, the rolled neoprene barely stay in them. The sleeves of the jacket seem to want to pull out of the gloves while I'm riding, and sometimes the armpits feel excessively tight. If you prefer shorties, and are built anything like me, the jacket won't make it all the way. Check pic.
All of this is quite easily solved by being less lazy and riding in a more aggressive tuck. The precurve and stretch panels take up and give slack, and the pressure in my armpits goes away, the elbows don't feel as short, tight and awkward. But, this causes the jacket to pull up in the back, where it already feels too short. It sits well above my hips. So much so, that I'm considering not even buying AGV compatable pants to zip into the jacket for fear that I wouldn't be able to ride the pants high enough for the zippers to connect.
Overall, good jacket, just slightly shorter than others I have.

Well worth the price
I have little experience with jackets so take the sizing remarks with a grain a salt. I found the arms a little short so but they work with my gauntlets. Lets in air well along the chest and arms area. A little too well for this winter weather but that is a personal issue. All in all I would recommend this jacket to anybody. I find it stylish, has good protection and should be wearable in warmer weather while moving without too much discomfort. At the price don't hesitate.

Good, Solid, well priced sport jacket.
I bought this jacket to replace my AGV Talon 2 jacket. So far it seems solid and comfortable. Air flow is fantastic. A little disappointed that the zip is not compatible with my AGV Sport leather pants like my previous AGV jacket. The neoprene cuffs and neck are comfortable but the cuffs seems to be wearing already where they meet my gloves. The fit is also a little wide in the body and short in the arms. Quality is still good.

Awesome leather jacket for its money
I ordered this jacket at random because I liked it very much but had no possibility to try it on in my country. Excellent style, good colors, fantastic metal shoulders and small aerohump. My chest is 89-90 cm, and size 40 fitted me good, except for sleeves - they are a bit short for me (174 cm height) but that's ok with gloves. The elbow inserts could also be a bit thinner.

The jacket looks and fits great and the looks are backed up by the functionality.
