AGV Sport Women's Xena Mesh Jacket
Great for summer in Florida
I bought this so I could ride with my boyfriend and as long as you remember to take the winter liner out (hehe I forgot the first time I wore it), it has great airflow for riding in the sweltering heat that is the Florida summer! It also has plenty of zippered pockets to carry your stuff, which is normal. Definitely looks better than a leather jacket with tons of fringe on the arms and back you had you borrow from your mom who once owned a bike and fancied herself a "biker" so she bought all kinds of leather fringe. Basically it's a good choice if you have no clue what kind of jacket you need and want to feel safe but not die of heat exhaustion. Seriously though, take that liner out or you will have to literally peel the thing off from the sweat (if you live on the surface of the sun AKA Florida).

Excellent jacket at a great price
After being disappointed at the lack of CE-approved protection near this price point, I stumbled across this jacket. The other reviews along with the video made me decide to give this a go. I'm 5'2" 130 lbs, and a small fits me very well.
Removable windproof/waterproof liner gives me the ability to stretch this into cooler months, or night riding. The liner coming with a separate storage bag was a nice touch.
CE approved protection is important to me.
Length is great, and it doesn't ride up at all.
Airflow is good, even as pillion!
Has zipper attachment for compatible pants.
Elastic ribbing on the side allows for a good fit
Arms are a little long on me and the armor is a little lower than I'd like, but I am a smaller person.
Headphone pass-through was covered by the mesh liner. There's no way to pass a headphone cord through without putting a hole in it.

Great for summer
I don't like to wear leather in the summer in Chicago heat. But I place a high importance on safety. I bought this jacket because of the mesh and the armor. Both do not disappoint, although I look quite broad-shouldered with the armor. I am 5'8" and 133 lbs and am 36A and waist (28) and would not be able to wear a small in this jacket because the top zips tight and flat like a man's jacket, however, the shaping of the trim is for a woman so it looks quite nice on me. Don't know what a large busted woman would do, maybe go up a size. I usually wear a woman's small or medium. I bought a MED in this jacket and it fits perfectly.
I don't like that the zipper is opposite (left zip), not sure why that is but it's weird, but I would still buy it again. It is lightweight and cool once you take the rain liner out. Haven't worn the liner in the cold yet but it makes the jacket feel tight. Below 55 degrees I would probably go back to my leather because it would be warmer. This jacket is great for warm weather because I feel protected but still cool. I got the black with hi-viz green trim and absolutely love how it looks. It's visible without being annoying and I got a solid hi-viz helmet (GMax 64S) that matches great with this jacket. I ride on a Harley with my husband so though he doesn't want to wear all this hi-viz, I do and I feel a lot safer.

I tend to get really hot in the summer so I wanted a mesh jacket to help keep me cool while riding and have all of the protective elements included. This jacket has a removable waterproof (?) liner that I immediately took out as soon as I tried it on - perhaps I'll zip it back in when the temps are lower in the Fall. With that said, when I return from a ride I'm usually covered in sweat. The mesh seems to be working though because I don't notice the heat until I'm stopped. The jacket has armor in the elbows, shoulders, and a pad for the back.
I knew going in that motorcycle jackets in general tend to have a smaller fit, so I chose the XL to accommodate my 38C bust and I'm glad I did! I have a curvy shape, so the waist is a slightly loose and the arms are a bit long but otherwise the jacket fits just fine. I am certain that a Large would be too tight around the bust to be comfortable. I bought the white/black color combo because I thought it wouldn't be as hot as the other color combos plus I wanted the visibility. It would be awesome if this jacket came in more colors like a bright orange to match my bike. So far so good!

This is a great jacket with many features but the sizes do run small. My wife normally wears a large but in this jacket I had to purchase a XL.

having the airflow makes all the difference in the world.!
First off I would like to say that whoever designed this jacket was an absolute genius. it fits very true to the female form which I found very difficult to find in any other jacket. now I'm far from flat chested I'm a 38D and weigh roughly about 175 pounds so any jacket that I tried on I always had trouble fitting over my chest but not this one this one fit absolutely flawlessly right out of the box. having the removable liner is something I've never had before so during the day I take the liner out and I enjoy the temperature when going down the road but it night when I get little bit older to throw that liner in there and I stay very comfortable even at 50 degrees. the added length on the jacket was a wonderful idea every jacket that I had before this one always rides up and always rides my shirts up and the small of my back always gets very cold so that is one of the many features I am thrilled about. this is a great jacket and for the price there's nothing better I will recommend this to everyone.
