Happy I grabbed it
I'm 5'8'' 157 lbs and wear a 40 dress jacket. I sent back my medium with Bio Armor back protector for a large with a large Bio Armor back protector. Decision based on fit with protector installed. Medium looked good but was short in arms and tight in the chest It's a bit roomy without the liner but great with it in. The jacket is very comfortable and lightweight. I'm a wimp to the cold and am very happy with the warmth provided. The style splits the difference between racer Joe and dorky touring gear. With the Bio Armor back protector and my slip stream back pack I'm comfortable on my Street Triple R on the highway and backroads. The one knock is the zipper. It's one gauge too small for this type of jacket. Not a deal breaker for me. I really like the versatility this jacket offers especially early fall to winter without having to carry full rain gear. My Gerbings fits with the liner in so I'm thinking no snow, I ride home for Christmas. Revzilla was super accommodating on the exchange.

Really good jacket worth much more than price.
Really good jacket worth much more than price. Good air flow once you are on the move....good in light rain but have not tried it in heavy rain.

Good for cold weather
I bought this jacket with the intent of using it year round. The arms get very hot unless you keep moving. The removable shell liner helps a little, but even without it this jacket still gets pretty hot. I recommend this for cold/cool weather riding (70 and below)

Great for the price. Classy good looks
The T-Fuel waterproof jacket is an incredibly versatile jacket for the price.
Yes, the ventilation isn't super, but a dash more throttle gives enough wind to counteract that.
The only two complaints I would mention are that the elbow protectors in the sleeves move around a little, not enough to matter in a collision but it would be nice to have some sort of tensioner at he elbow. Also the Bio-armor back-protector should be standard and not a $30 extra.
Overall the classiness of the jacket makes it useful for more than just riding. But when riding, the removable liner and breathable shell have kept me comfortable from 10-70*F.

A qualified recommendation for an OK product
Before I get into the product specifics, let's talk about intended use. I currently live in an area that allows me to ride year round. Winters do go down to the high 20's (slightly below zero if you prefer the metric system) so warm clothing is still required.
Given my location I get a great amount of use out of my mesh jacket (Verona Air). For those colder days I had been pairing the mesh jacket with a second layer or even a third. The t-fuel solves this problem by properly blocking cold air, with a bonus: I can use my Alpinestars back and chest protection.
About this jacket. Very good bang for the buck. You get a full liner, what I think is a nice urban/retro city style and some protection. It's also waterproof, but I've not tested it.
The not so great stuff? The fit is challenging. I'm 5'9" 170 lbs and the medium would not have allowed any layers. Moving up to a large I can layer, but the elbow pads are very loose. Not the best solution for protection when layering.
The main zipper is quite light and I've had issues with it. You have to be extra careful to align the zipper or it will 'unzip' from the bottom up. A more heavy duty bi-directional zipper would have been appreciated.
Another issue is the collar: There is a flap with no hook on the inside of the jacket should you wish to keep it open up top. With the jacket unzipped, the collar will poke you in the face. I've fixed this with some double sided tape and Velcro. Now I can rock an open collar at will.
Bottom line: OK jacket but you get what you pay for. Good price with OK fit, low quality zipper and a collar that could have used a bit more design consideration
Overall, it does the job on a budget and looks very good. Great on a cold day and looks good. I do however think it could have been better designed.

Ron G: On Sale and it was Waterproof. I live in georgia and it rains often, Plus I dig the retro'ish look to it and it is much cheaper than buying an all out leather jacket with the retro look.Oct 6, 2013
Jeremy D: Good price for a jacket with potentially great versatility. No need to carry the rain gear for those mid week Bear Mt runs! Can't wait to get it in the mail.Aug 28, 2013
A shopper asked:Hi. I'm interested in acquiring an Alpinestars T-Fuel jacquet and I'm having a hard time finding the proper size for me. I'm 5'9'', 44'' chest and 183 lbs. What size would you recommend, L or XL?
Covalciuc M:Hi. I am around the same size as you, 180cm, 83 KG, athletic constitution. I can't measure the chest size at the moment, but I thing i am around 43 inches (109-110 cm) :) I bought the size L and it is kind of large for me... I also have a Verona Air Jacket for the summer and the size L fits perfect. I'm from Romania and exchanging it would be a pain in the ass. That being said, I can definitely tell you, do not go for the XL, try the L first! Cheers!Sep 30, 2013
Jeremy D:I am 5'8'' 157. I wear a 40 dress sports jacket. I originally ordered a medium with a medium bio armor back protector. It looked good but was short in the arms and chest. I exchanged for a large with a large bio armor back protector and I kept it. It's slightly big without the liner but awesome with it. It's really light and comfortable. I agree with others, the zipper sucks, but it's a great jacket. You go XL sir.Oct 9, 2013
I am 6 ft and 183, 42 chest. I purchased the XL because the chest measurements fitted and the Jacket was great across my chest when i received it. Unfortuntely the jacket is too large across the hips fpr me, so the jacket catches the wind when you ride. Could not send it back becasue I had worn it. The jacket is designed for a heavier set person than me. Would suggest you try on a large before buying.Sep 26, 2013
