AGV Sport Telluride Waterproof Jacket
Good commuter jacket, lacking in waterproofness (esp pants) and poor durability
Have had the Telluride jacket and pants for 3 years. I'm 6ft and I wear the Medium jacket and 2XL pants. The 2XL pants are required for leg length even though they hike up above my short boots while on my bike. The shoulder vents on top of the jacket act like huge sails when open or closed and you will encounter severe drag, especially at highway speeds. Pants are not waterproof. I ride 12 miles into work and my thighs, groin and butt get soaked if riding in constant rain. My arms get wet too in constant rain but not as bad as my lower body. After year one the threads holding the right sleeve together between the wrist and elbow unraveled revealing the liner beneath. I manually sewed the sleeve together but it has since starting coming apart again. I love the 3/4 length of the jacket but cannot recommend it for use past a single season due to the right sleeve constantly coming unsewn.

Florida to Alaska and back in this jacket.
Well, It's yellow.
Good points..Price, fit, color
Bad points..Many. First, there is NO snap to close the neck. Very annoying when it gets cold. There is a small velcro patch but if you are riding with you neck in the wind it blows open. I had to wear a rain jacket with a secure neck to overcome this issue.
Second, there are "flaps" above the vent zippers on the front shoulder. These "flaps" catch the wind and create huge drag. You can actually feel them pulling you back.
Third, the snaps that allow you to tighten the arms work but one broke off.
Would I buy another one? No.

Good value for the price.
This coat kept me very warm and comfortable in 50-60 degree weather with just a turtleneck.
Plenty of pockets and the Hi-Vis is the reason for my purchase.
Inner liner is warm and easy to remove and install.
Arm adjustments and cuff adjustments work well and are secure.
The ventilation is not bad, being this is a coat for cooler days
it idoes the job.
Neck is comfortable and all the zippers seem to be of good quality and work well.
Only 2 things I would point out :
Runs small- I am 5'10" 195 medium build with no gut. I normally wear a medium jacket.The medium ( as suggested by video) is tight. Did an easy exchange for a Large and the arm length is fine, but the torso is still a bit snug with just a turtleneck. Not really enough room to layer.
I have another AGV mesh jacket that I purchased from Revzilla, and bought the XL, which fits well.
Stitching quality on both coats is good and the reflective is also good.
As other reviews state, the main zippers are reversed.
For the price, they are a good value for getting started, will eventually upgrade. Both will accomodate shoulder, elbow and back armor upgrades.

Great entry level touring jacket.
I've ridden in weather from 39 to 80 degrees (Fahrenheit) and have been comfortable. It flows air well when its warm and seals up nicely when its cold. The collar and interior of jacket (when liner is removed) can get a bit scratchy at times.

First off if you have a gut get a size bigger. Love the jacket. Will continue to buy Agv. New rider.

Perfect 4- Season Jacket
I've used mine in 30 deg and 90 deg. It's great for fall winter and spring, comes with a nice quilted liner, then i just use base layers under it. The only con in the cold, if you do not secure the wrist straps perfectly, air will get in and make you chilly. Now, I am extra skinny so that could just be my issue with little wrists.
It is 100% waterproof, been caught in many a rain storm and have not gotten wet. Has water proof pockets. It's phenomenal in the rain. I cannot stress that enough.
It's a little warm in the summer, but it does have pretty decent vents. It could use one or two more but, hey. The only con on the vents, the shoulder vents at high-speeds become parachutes and slow you down.
The fit is wonderful, I am 5'9 135 LB and got a medium.
I love the jacket, great bang for the buck. Plan on buying the telluride pants to go with it.
I also have a AGV sport solaire jacket for the super hot days.
I also would like to note I replaced the back pad.

15 months after purchase jacket has fallen apart to the point of no longer being usable. The upper left hand pocket's zipper pull fell apart within three weeks. Main zipper (which is backwards) is all screwed up at the bottom making zipping up a very frustrating hit-or-miss proposition. Seams are now coming apart all over the jacket, the last of which has rendered the jacket no longer waterproof. If it can't hold up to a handful of washings how well do you think it'll hold up if you hit the pavement? Buy something else.

I really like the overall design because of it's functuionality, obviously designed by someone, or team that has ridden in good / bad conditions. The one most important aspect is the price point. While I do not want to sacrifice quality / workmanship for savings I think the overall industry has grown too expensive.
