AGV Sport Women's Xena Mesh Jacket
Great summer riding jacket!
I don't know what I'd do without this jacket living in the San Fernando Valley. The airflow is AWESOME! It was 102 degrees today and I rode comfortably during the hottest part of the afternoon. The fit is great, with the tapered waist I actually look like a female while riding. I have the yellow and I love how bright and visible it is. I did replace the back pad because I felt the one if came with was a little flimsy but other than that this is a really great jacket!

Great jacket for summer riding.
Though I have little to compare it to, since it's my first summer riding jacket, I really love this jacket. It fits perfectly (made sure to measure myself for the fit), it's highly visible according to my boyfriend when he followed me home in his car one night, and it's been great for riding in rain with the liner in. The breath-ability of the jacket is good too--it gets very hot and humid in Philadelphia in the summers, and I've been very comfortable in nearly all conditions with this jacket. The pockets are helpful, the armor feels reliable, though I've thankfully not had to find out for sure, and it looks great, too.

Finally a womans jacket that fit me
5'2'' -130 lbs and not much of a waist line , love the contour fit with the stretchy sides. Good air flow too , I bought the small, reluctantly, because I like more room in the shoulders and arm length. Perfect

A Great Value Purchase
I bought this jacket for my girlfriend. She loves it and it fits her very well. For the price, it's a great buy! I would definitely recommend it for a passenger jacket, maybe a daily rider jacket (she isn't one so I'm not sure about how well it will function for every day use). AGV Sport is a good brand and the build quality seems durable and carefully constructed.

Happy girlfriend is now protected!
Got this for my girlfriend to ride with me. The sleeves are a little long for her and the actual jacket is a little short too. That being said, she's very happy with the airflow and protection.

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.
