Great protective budget leather jacket
It is very hard to find a real leather jacket with full CE armor without breaking the bank... This is it. Most jackets advertising "back protector included" give you a wimpy piece of foam, but I pulled this one out to check and it does have the "CE" stamp. A pleasant surprise! The leather is good quality and thick, so I have no doubts about its abrasion resistance.
Not sure how cold it could be outside before you'd need additional layers, but removable thermal lining provides some flexibility for warmer temperatures. Leather is going to be warmer than textile no matter how you slice it, but after removing the thermal liner and opening all the vents (shoulder, arm, back), it's not uncomfortable while moving.
Fit is good. I'm 5'2" with a 30" waist and 36" bust, and got a small. Shoulder/elbow armor falls in exactly the right place. As with many riding jackets, the torso shape, padding, and curved arms look good while you're on the bike, but it looks a little "off" if you're just walking around. Unzipping the front helps, but I guess if you're not shopping specifically for a *riding* jacket then you wouldn't even be looking at this.
In terms of "while sitting on a motorcycle" style, I would classify this as a standard or sport bike jacket than a cruiser jacket. Being longer in the back, it falls more naturally when you're bent forward a bit on a slightly sportier standard bike (like mine) or hunched over the tank of a real sport bike. Sitting in the typical "cruiser" position, the whole torso area bunches up and just looks weird.
I am overall very pleased with this purchase. Nice to find a good, protective leather jacket without emptying my bank account!
