AGV Sport Willow Leather Jacket
I can't recommend this jacked
It fits very well, looks really nice with a classy look but the construction is in question. My 1st trip with it was a 3300 mile trek to Colorado and half way into the trip the main zipper pull broke off. It will zip up and down but there is nothing to grab to do it. I ended up threading a sandwich tie into the zipper to give me something to grab. All the zippers are cheap, they should of used YKK zippers. Also on my left arm I can see broken threads in the stitching. I like the air flow trough the bicep vent but when in light rain, even when closed, water comes through. This will be a perfect jacket for the posers but you iron butt types need to look else where.

Great bang for the buck, just what the Dr ordered.
Very high quality jacket for the price. I expected a cheaper feeling leather at this price point, but what AGV puts out is anything but. Very comfortable, good maneuverability, and I feel well protected. I'm 5'8", 170lbs and the 40 fits me like a glove . Great styling and features all around. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Highly recommended!!!

Great style, excellent grade leather
Hard to believe this jacket can be had for less than $300. Awesome grade leather, quality stitching and good ventilation. Best looking jacket I've ever owned. The gray in the picture is not really gray on the jacket, it's all black and I love that.
I am 6 ft 190 lbs and wear a 46 jacket which is what I ordered. The 46 was too small in the chest and shoulders. I packed it back up and shipped it back to Revzilla the next day and ordered a 48. Two days later the new jacket arrived. Awesome service! The next day my card was credited for the return.

Good value jacket.
I was looking for a leather jacket under $250- that had decent protection and that I could wear comfortably throughout as wide of a temperature range as possible,(in other words I wanted one jacket to wear throughout the year). It was a more difficult task than I expected, however I'm happy I settled on this jacket.
The vents do help airflow, especially the bicept vents, I could feel them catching air and venting to the armpits or back vents when travelling at highway speeds.The jacket appears well made and should last well. The fit is spot on for me going off AGV's chart. As others have said it is very stiff when new and I've only used it once, so hopefully it softens up enough with more use. I think this jacket is great value for money.

Can't give an actual review on the protective aspect of this jacket but it seems like I'd be fine in the event of a slide.
Removable liner really made a difference on the hot/cold days
Good rain protection
The vents give amazing airflow that reach even my chest and back.
Took a bit to break it in but feels great now.

My favorite jacket by far
I can't say enough good things about this jacket. It's a steal for the price and it's great quality and is a good looking choice for us cruiser guys.
With no sleeve length specified on the sizing chart I was unsure which size to go with since I'm a 39-40 chest 32 sleeve. I decided to go with the 40 and it was a perfect fit everywhere. This jacket fits just a hair small at first but when it breaks in it will be perfect.
The leather is thick, heavy, and stiff and the armor holds tight in all the right places. The back armor, as usual in most jackets, was just a throw-away piece of foam. I replaced it with a Forcefield Type B 001 protector which is about an inch smaller in height and width than the original foam but just barely fits into the access hole for insertion.
The jacket is all black regardless of how some of the pictures make it look and it does not have any kind of suede finish. It's all plain leather.
The vents are great and flow air very well. I took it out on its maiden ride in 75F and it was perfect with all vents open and the liner removed.
The size adjustments are truly ingenious because they approach adjustments from the opposite way that they are usually created. These adjustments expand rather than contract and there is never any extraneous material flapping in the breeze.
On the negative side I don't like the velcro connectors at the wrists. I don't believe they are necessary and they don't seem to be stitched on well. In fact one of them even has a slight cut in it which appears as if it could eventually rip off. But even taking these off wouldn't affect the fit or look of the jacket so I'm not sure why they're even there.

Received this Jacket from motorcycle superstore, was too big on me at size 46. Since they took almost 2 weeks to ship the jacket, I ordered from Revzilla so I wouldn't have to wait another 2-3 weeks. Revilla shipped same day and I received the jacket the next day! Talk about outstanding customer service. I even received a follow up call, which the customer service rep was nice and helpful. The size 44 fit snugger on me, although the arms are still a little baggy because I took out the pads. No complaint though, I don't think I would like it tighter. Took about 2 weeks to break in, but isn't as stiff now. Overall excellent jacket and looks great!
Definitely shop with Revzilla, best experience I've had with cycle companies.

Exceptional for the Price
I purchased this jacket and the matching pants and could not be happier with them. The fit and finish of the products is equivalent to others at twice the price.
