AGV Sport Sniper Jacket
Great Cold Weather Jacket
Bought it for cold weather riding. I have a short commute to work and have done a few rides in the winter with this jacket and its great for what I rode in, around 30 degrees. The liner really keeps you warm even in the cold weather.
I only have 3 issues with the jacket. 1) It is a little short on the back. Even with tightening the straps, it doesn't feel as long as I'm comfortable with but it still works fine. 2) The neck isn't as snug as I would like to help keep the wind off my neck better in cold weather. 3) Comes from a great feature from the jacket, the long zipper pulls. Its great for accessing with gloves but if you don't tuck the shoulder ones away before riding, the pulls might smack you in the neck.
The good by far outweighs the bad though. For the price, this jacket is great. Keeps you warm in the cold weather, comfortable cuffs, the warmer pockets work well, removable liner, etc. I can't say on how it does in the warmer weather since I haven't ridden with it in the warmer weather yet.

Good riding jacket
This was what i was looking for, a decent protective wear with very good protection pads. Just a little bit of concern over the exposed area around waist. Fits good on shoulders and arms but short in length for torso.

Best jacket I ever owned!
Firstly, I live in Canada, and I had to add about $100 (CAN) to the price of $135 to get the jacket shipped here and passed Canadian Customs. I thought we had a free trade deal with the US - but apparently not applicable to motorcycle jackets - nuff said...
I shopped online for a long time before I settled on this AGV jacket. It was worth it. The style is very fetching, because this jacket was designed by somebody who has at least has been to Italy. With my Simpson Helmet, and iridium face shield - I look bad!
However I did carefully remove some parts I didn't need, such as the velcro waist belt, and all the little fabric zipper pull extenders.
The jacket cuts through the air very smooth, and I almost felt naked at 80MPH - from a wind/drag point of view. I like the velcro wrist/glove tighteners. I like the heavy duty zipper, and heavy duty construction throughout. This is a great jacket, but honestly, if you'all went out and bought them, then mine would not be as unique - and if you do, please don't come to Canada with it on....just kidding.
Remember to add a size bigger, as I am 5'-8" (155lbs) and a Large was just barely big enough - I want to wear a fleecy thing under when it's colder than 10C.

Looks good, full of features but just doesn't fit right.
This would be my third jacket. I am returning it because it does not fit at all the way a moto jacket should. I am 6'2" slim athletic build so I have to look for "euro" fit type jackets. I have a fieldsheer that is too big but works great with a down jacket underneath(winter). I also have a Dainese mesh jacket for the summer. It fits GREAT but not many features for the cost. I know that AGV sport is NOT Italian even though it flaunts the colors. It is rated as a EURO fit, but they just make their jackets very very small. Not a proper fit at all. The sleeves are way too short, and the elbow pads are about 3 inches off too far down AND hang under my arm... WTF?? I ordered a large and with the liner taken out, I can just barely put it on, but it is super uncomfortable. Not to mention the back pad actually IS CE rated even though not listed on Revzilla as such, but it is very flat, stiff, and non removable. The pocket to get to it is about half the size of the actual pad. you would have to cut something to remove it. Seemed too good to be true for the price and now I know why. You would have to be a very awkwardly shaped person to fit this jacket. I will go back to spending much more for a featureless yet COMFORTABLE jacket.

Very good for the price, but need to order 1 size up.
Very good for the price, but need to order 1 size up. This is a very good winter jacket and not recommended for warm weather. Style is awesome.

Excellent jacket for the price
I don't think any riding jacket will be overly comfortable with decent padding, but this isn't too bad. The removable liner makes a great transition from early spring to summer conditions in the mountains (all in one day). I was the most surprised by how warm the jacket keeps me when its cold (without the liner) and how cool it keeps me on the 90+ degree days, even with an all black jacket. I encountered some nasty rain and hail recently and I was bone dry afterwards. This jacket is fairly bulletproof from what I have seen (may not really stop bullets...) Overall I have been happy with this jacket in its price range.

Bought this jacket knowing that I would be riding in semi-chilly conditions. Definitely kept me warm during the colder months but also breathable enough to keep you cool on the hot days. Fits a little small for my tastes but not too bad. I'm 5'10", 170lbs and a large fit me a little snug but not uncomfortably.
