Great Light Jacket for Heavy Protection
I have been looking for a Kevlar-lined jean jacket for quite some time but most are in the $175-$200 range. I found this AGV jacket for around $99 and was a little skeptical of the lower price. But since I have two pair of AGV Kevlar jeans that I really like, I gave it a try. Glad I did. The fit is just on the small side but I like an athletic fit in my jackets. I wear a 40 to 42 in most jackets and the medium was spot on. It has a very stylish look and is indistinguishable from regular, casual jean jackets. The stitching seems sturdy and there are pockets for soft armor. I don't use the back pad but I do use the pocket to carry rain gear on occasion. With the bottom button fastened it is much cooler than my perforated leather jackets on warm spring days. I have not tested it's protective abilities and, quite frankly, I hope I never do. It's a great lightweight jacket and I'm glad a purchased mine.

Really good jacket
Great price and looks good. Runs a little small. The buttons can be a bit annoying but other than that it's perfect.

Nathan T: Looking for a lighter alternative to my perforated leather riding jacket while maintaining a greater level of protection during hot. summer commutes. Very, very happy with my AGV Kevlar-lined jeans so I decided to give the AGV jean jacket a try. Price point was also attractive compared to similar options.Mar 28, 2015
spencer b: Look and protection in very hot weather riding (hot enough that mesh is worse because your sweat dries to fast with it).Jul 6, 2014
David R: excellent price and reviews. Once I received it I was very pleased with the quality and price. The Klim back pad was almost a perfect fit also.Feb 14, 2014
A shopper asked:Hi guys, I'm 5'6, 130lbs. I wear size 46 in Dainese measurements. Should I go for XS or S? XS isn't listed on the sizing chart, which is why I'm asking. Thanks!Apr 18, 2014
David R:I am 5' 10", 175 lbs with 42" chest. I wear a large in jackets from Icon, Olympia, etc but my experience with Dainese and AGV is that I have to buy a size larger than my normal size. I bought this jacket in an XL and it fits comfortably, not loose but not too tight.May 4, 2014
Nicolas P asked:Hey guys, just a bit curious as to what armor available on your site would best fit in this jacket? Also, does anybody have any experience regarding the durability/quality of its materials? Lastly, I've read that it fits relatively small in the sizing department while AGV's size chart seems to think otherwise, at 6'0 150 lbs 38" chest, what size would you guys recommend?
Jacqueline S:Hey Nicolas: I am a female who liked the style of this jacket and didn't find an equivalent in the womens' stuff. I would think a large would be fine. I am 5'8', with a 38' chest and wanted enough room for either armor or to wear it over an armored vest (which is what I do most often). The large is a little big on me but perfect for that layering. I love the jacket--well made, very comfortable and the kevlar is in all the right places. The back armor from my Scorpion mesh textile jacket fits in there; however, not sure what would fit in terms of elbows. As I said, I generally wear the jacket over an armor vest with spine and chest protection. Hope this helps. JackieJan 7, 2014
Paul S:I used standard CE armour at first but changed it out to to d3o armour which is much better.
As for quality it's quite good for the price but it is only Kevlar lined in places not fully, and doesn't have a liner or inside pockets. I bought it for summer riding in the desert heat as airflow is great.
Regarding size, I'm 6'2" 200lbs 48" chest and got 2xl which it a bit big, should have got the xl but everyone said fit was small for me it wasn't
David R:For the shoulders and elbows I used spare ce approved armor from other of my jackets that were no longer usable. Those pads fit perfectly in the AGV kevlar jacket. I bought a Klim backpad from Revzilla. That pad fit with only very slight trimming needed. It was 15.5 long and 11.5 at the widest point. The armor is not very noticeable and doesn't detract from the fit of the jacket.May 4, 2014
A shopper asked:The AGV size chart shows the smallest size as chest 42-43. I'm 5'10'' and 38'' chest, always take a medium in everything. Where does this leave me? Their chart makes me feel decidedly inadequate... Will a medium really be too large for me?
