AGV Sport Women's Xena Mesh Jacket
Perfect for price!
I bought this as my first jacket and loved it! I purchased the black and yellow/lime. To my surprise, the yellowish detailing was brighter, which I loved! Makes it easier to spot you. I'm 5'3 125 lbs but big chested so I was afraid of purchasing a small but it fit perfectly and was not restricting in the chest area at all! The removable liner is so handy when you live in a hotter area (purchased when I lived in FL) and the ventilation is fantastic. I only wish the back padding was stronger but that is always something you can add on. Stylish & does its job, highly recommend it.

Great airflow and very comfortable
Just received this jacket a couple of weeks ago. Airflow is wonderful and the removable waterproof/windproof layer is a great feature considering some of my rides get a bit chilly when out on the coast. I purchased a Large. I'm 6ft 36" chest 29" waist and I was a bit worried that the jacket would be too short but the overall length and sleeve length of the jacket is perfect! Looks and feels great on. Good summertime jacket for the CA coastal weather! :)

This is my first motorcycle jacket and I love it! It's comfortable, very stylish, and I feel protected while I'm riding. I don't feel restricted at all. It allows for nice air flow on warm days and is nice on cool mornings. I definitely recommend it.

Absolutely Perfect......well almost
This is the best fitting and most comfortable riding jacket I have ever had on!
It does run one size small (I'm 5'8", 155 lbs with a 38" bust and normally wear a large but had to send it back for an XL), but the length of the jacket and sleeves are perfect. Plus, the accordian fabric on the sides is the best design element they could have incorporated. It makes the jacket fit snugly without being tight and gives when you need it to.
The liner offers great wind/water protection without being sticky or uncomfortable. It makes this jacket versatile enough for more than just hot weather riding. And the reflective piping offers great night time visibility.
The one and only flaw I can find with this jacket so far is the lack of interior pockets. It has only one. It should have at least two so you can keep your cell phone separate from keys or anything else that might scratch it...without having to use the exterior handwarmer pockets.
I would definitely buy this jacket again if I had to. But it seems well made, so I don't think that will be necessary for a very long time.

Love this jacket
I love this jacket. The design is eye-catching and the air flow is amazing. The wind just filters through the mesh wonderfully. I had tried other jackets on and they never fit quite right, the armor was always somewhat off. This jacket fit me perfectly, the armor fits perfectly and after a while, I forget I am wearing it. My only only only problem with this jacket is the stretch panels at the sides. Somehow, the sides cause the jacket to kind of rumple and cut into my sides. It is not uncomfortable but it does not really flatter me. For what this jacket costs and its features, I decided to keep it. I found that if I pull the jacket all the way down, then the rumpling doesn't really affect the appearance. The stitching is great and the whole thing feels durable. If AGV came out with a new version of this jacket without the over elasticized side panels, because that is the part that is not really flattering, I would buy it.

GF loves it!
Black w/Hi Viz accents. She loves the fit. Got the XS, just the right length and fit. Complimentary, but not dorky to my Mission Hi-Viz Jacket.
Highly recommended. She usually gets cold easily. Stayed warm on a 50 degree night ride with only a short sleeve t-shirt underneath. Will compliment with Telluride pants to give her an entire outfit.

Great fit, great value
Needed a summer jacket with better ventilation than my spring/fall jacket but didn't want to spend a lot; the Xena mesh has far exceeded my expectations, especially in terms of looks. I got the hi-vis which is basically black with hi-vis yellow wavy stripes, and it's really attractive - it gets lots of compliments. My husband says the stripes really stand out when I ride in front of him. Good airflow through the sleeves without the waterproof liner; not as much air through the body, but in 90 degree heat it's still been comfortable when in motion. Collar is lined and very comfortable when zipped. It's more form-fitting than I expected; the elastic bottom band keeps the jacket from riding up but allows enough expansion to fit over my riding pants. I'm 5'5", 135 lb, and the small fits fine (a little snug but not enough to go up a size.) Sleeves are plenty long and the zipper and Velcro wrap-around cuff make it easy to get on and off. I won't be able to wear anything heavy underneath - would have to go to a medium to wear a sweatshirt. But for an inexpensive summer mesh jacket with good visibility, airflow and style, this is a really good choice. I LOVE this jacket!

Good Summer Jacket - White Has Odd Feature
I wanted to love this jacket, and was excited as I took it out of the box. It was a little snug under the armpits but not too bad, and it has the stretch panels there so I think I probably would have gotten used to that. I purchased the white, and you could see the uneveness of the colors from the layers fo darker fabric underneath the top layer of while down the front. On left side of the zipper was a different pattern than the right, and it really looked weird. I tried to straighten the pockets and linings but it just didn't work. Sadly I am returning this jacket and will continue my search. Love Revzilla and their staff!
