AGV Sport Women's Xena Mesh Jacket
Great budget summer jacket
This jacket is a great option for hot weather, with the removable liner and large panels of mesh. I have worn it as a passenger and riding my own bike and the airflow is excellent. Obviously, there is a lot less airflow as a passenger but that is to be expected. I have also used the jacket with the liner in and a long-sleeve shirt to stretch the jacket into early fall when riding around town.
The jacket is surprisingly well-made for the cost and feels nice. I will say the armor is not the softest I've felt, but given the cost, the armor is more than adequate and is comfortable when in the riding position. One of the best things about the fit of this jacket are the stretch panels on the sides which make it feel like a tailored fit regardless of size. It is definitely a European fit-I am 5'6" and 120lbs with a fairly slim upper body and the XS fits me perfectly.
Overall, really happy with this jacket for the money.

The elastic on the sides makes it fit nice and snug without being tight or uncomfortable. Lots of air flow and the style is very flattering to a woman's shape. Well made and great price. Love the jacket and highly recommend!

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.
