Cortech Women's LRX Air 2.0 Mesh Jacket
very comfortable jacket
I ordered this jacket last minute to wear at Sturgis 75th Rally. It came in the mail quickly and just in time. The size chart had me wearing an XL, however I had tried one on at a consignment shop and a Med. fit perfect so that is what I ordered and it fit well. I wore the jacket everytime we were on the bike. Airflow was great as long as we were moving. The day temps were in the upper 80's most of the time. It can get hot when you are wearing it and not moving, like in downtown Sturgis traffic. We did have rain on two occasions and low temps, the windbreaker did keep me warm and I was completely dry when I arrived at our destination. The only thing I do not like is the plastic zipper. I did have an issue with the zipper on the windbreaker opening up, it took two of us to get the thing unzipped, it worked fine after that. I am 5 feet and medium build, but I have large boobs so I went for the medium, and the adjustable snaps on the arms made it so I could make that armor fit perfectly. It is a comfortable jacket and warm. I have not used the quilted liner yet, I live in Florida so I may never use it...Overall I love my jacket...

great jacket overall
We own several Cortech products and overall they are a great bang for the buck. This jacket was purchased for my daughter and I found the size chart to be a little misleading. I ultimately only used the height portion and found the size worked out great.
Like everything cortech makes, the cell phone pockets are still made for phones no bigger than a 1980s flip phone!

Great jacket for female riders that want protection and ventilatoin.
Versatile jacket that fits a woman's body well. Many inside pockets for change, cell phone, lipstick, etc. I usually wear a medium, but returned the medium for a large. Definitely to up a size. It's snug, but a comfortable fit.

Affordable, stylish, durable.
I'm on my bike every day barring ice on the ground, from 15-105°F, and have owned this jacket for a year, so am giving a long-term review. :)
It has held up very well. Snaps, pockets, zippers etc are all solid. The waterproof liner has kept me dry during downpours, and the same liner is an excellent windbreaker for chilly early mornings. Even in the middle of winter, with both liners in is good enough for commuting around town.
Has good airflow for the summer. Good enough that I've never thought, "it's too hot for gear." Sweating buckets when at a standstill in the midwest humidity, but can't expect otherwise wearing black.
I unfortunately tested all my gear during a ~30 mph lowside a few months ago. The armor was sturdy and in just the right places to do its job, and my body took not a scratch or bruise.The sleeves have some scuffing but even with my continued use, no tears or fraying have developed.
If this jacket ever wears out, I wouldn't hesitate to get the same one again. My only minor gripe is that the shoulder armor is rotated partly back onto my scapula. But that's more because I'm built funny than flawed manufacturing.
(for reference: 5'1", 120 lbs, X-small is a great fit).

I absolutely love this jacket! At first I had a little trouble figuring out the size so I ordered the jacket in the wrong size the first time. Getting it exchanged was no problem at all, Revzilla had it shipped within a day of receiving it.
I am a very short rider. I am 4'10 1/2 weighing about 170, so a medium plus fit perfect. It was a little tight when I had the inner liner but that was no problem once I took it out. I live in Florida sooo I need all the breathability I can get. The jacket is also perfect for all the rain we get. I was so ecstatic to find out that it was rainproof. The reflectors are also a nice touch so that drivers can see me better...I'm a tiny person so I'm not always seen haha.
I am absolutely in love with this jacket and would definitely recommend it to anyone!

Great jacket for a great price.
I purchased this jacket for the armour protection and air flow. I was not disappointed. This jacket comes with 3 layers that can be taken out or added according to the weather. Airflow is great and allows you to go fast without getting blowed off your bike. There are lots of pockets to store your stuff. I ordered a small which fit perfectly. There are Velcro closures to make it a bit bigger if you stuff your pockets. There is also Velcro around the wrists which you can tighten. Color and design is very stylish and visibility is terrific. I would buy another one if I needed it.

I found this jacket in the closeout section, and after seeing all the great reviews, I figured I'd try it out. I can't believe such a great jacket is on closeout! I like the white/black for visibility. It's a great option for me since I'm not into the traditional pink/purple for women's gear. It fits great with and without all the liners (there are 3 total pieces!). There are PLENTY of pockets, it's breathable, and seems like it would be plenty warm if you wore all the liners.

I'm happy with my purchase!
I'm happy with my purchase! The jacket looks great on if you get the correct size. The jacket runs very big!
After reading reviews and watching review videos online, I decided to call customer service. I'm 5'5", 40" bust, 33" waist, and 38.5" hips. When reading the sizing chart, that would put me in a XL. Customer service rep put me in a medium. Fits perfect. Close to the body but not tight, even with all layers in it. Arm length is perfect.
The quality seems great. Stitching, zippers and snaps all very nice! Plenty of pockets! The protective inserts fall perfectly on the elbows and shoulders.
