Cortech Adrenaline Leather Jacket
I am very pleased with the quality of this jacket. I ride in North Texas and find this jacket cooler than the textile mesh jacket I was using. I admit I bought it for appearance because I ride to work everyday and needed something cleaner and trimmer than my preferred Aerostitch road clothes. After riding with the Jacket I decided to buy a pair of Cortech gloves.

The jacket is snug but all the pad placement is perfect. Heavy when you first put it on, but worth the protection.

Not very often a piece of clothing fits this well!!
I read all the reviews I could on this jacket, and there were a lot. When I received the jacket I was prepared for a little disappointment but I was wrong.
This jacket is everything I hoped it would be. It fits me like a glove! The sizing is perfect (I'm 180cm, 87kg, somewhat athletic build) and the medium was a perfect fit.
I love the way the jacket fits across my chest but still hugs my waist, and yet I can lean forward comfortably to the handlebars in complete comfort. it's snug when zipped up to the wrist.
The quality of jacket is very high, and the leather smells great. The protective pads sit well and you barely know they are there.
The only issue I have is on the left wrist, with pressure on my watch when the jacket is zipped up to the wrist. It could use just a smidge more space where your watch sits on your left wrist.

Had the unfortunate chance to crash test this jacket just a few weeks after purchase in a 30mph lowside. The armor inserts absolutely saved me from an elbow and collarbone fracture, absorbed a majority of the impact force (my left knee abosorbed the rest, which, unfortuately, was not padded -_-). Leather is super tough, you can barely tell I took a spill in it unless you look at the scraped up steel sliders on the elbow and shoulders.
Very breathable jacket; I daresay even a bit too much for a chilly morning. But as far as awesome protection in hot weather, hands down, it is a great way to go.
Only real cons: I am tall, and, like most clothing for people with long limbs, I had to buy a 2XL jacket just so the sleeves would reach my wrists, which made the belly area a bit looser than I would have liked. Still a far better fit than euro style jackets are on us tall folk, but for this price, I wish companies would offer "Tall" options with their jackets so they fit properly. Other con: FRONT ZIPPER. What a pain it is. Not really enough to dock it more than 1 star, but what a pain it is to get it zipped up without catching. Like a 2-3 minute long affair. So frustrating.
As far as styling, I really liked that this jacket didn't have silly logos all over it; just a nice clean look. Got a lot of compliments on it (even after I crashed).
Overall, I would absolutely buy this jacket again

Great looking jacket
Jacket is very well made, the leather is heavy and it feels really solid. It also is a bit heavy, but that's what you expect with all the features and the quality of leather. The jacket for sure makes you feel more secure so you can push that speed up just a bit more ;)

Great price, style, protection. Terrible zippers.
The Jacket seems good and I hope it holds up well, the matching pants already had a few loose threads with 2 weeks of wear, but I don't think there are any on the jacket yet *fingers crossed*. If it does stand the test of time then it's a great jacket except for the ZIPPERS! The zippers are pretty much garbage. They're plastic and get snagged really bad really often. I can't zip the jacket to the pants by myself because it snags so bad and I attempted it several times. I either have to have someone zip them together for me, which everyone has had trouble doing, or zip it all together and climb into it like a one-piece suit. The main zipper is also bad and it took me a little while to figure out, there are certain spots you have to pull while zipping to keep the zipper from snagging, definitely a two-hand job. The armor seems good and I feel safe riding in this. Tons of airflow so I think I will be good to go in through the Kentucky summer. The style is awesome, and I think it's one of the best looking jackets out there. Overall as long as it holds up I love the jacket, especially for the price and I would recommend it to my friends. I can live with the terrible zippers.
