Fly Fifty5 Jacket
Great all weather riding jacket
I bought this jacket at the end of August and used it to commute to work through the beginning of December down to about 38 degrees. In the summer I removed the liner and opened up the vents and I was very comfortable. The jacket has some great air ventilation. As the temperature dropped I was able to add the liner and with a good sweater I never felt cold in my core. Only reason I stopped riding was because of my hands, have not found a good pair to ride in during high speed low temperature stretches. Water protection is great as long as it is not a down pour. It has kept me dry in light showers, but eventually the vents and the non leather areas of the jacket will start feeling wet.
I Highly recommend this jacket, it looks great, the pricepoint is awsome, and it has been really versatile.

Good value, good experience.
As a 5'10" 200lb guy this was my first purchase online from Revzilla, so I was a little nervous about what I'd get. Quality of the product is good. Jacket is very comfortable and fits well. Its a little tigher than I anticipated, but definitely workable and comfortable. I really like the style, and the materials are really relaxed. Jacket is warm, but I haven't had to endure any rain or moisture riding in California. Good value.

Warm and comfortable
The jacket is great. I am 5'9" and weigh 165 and a large is a perfect fit with the liner in. It's a little loose with the liner out, but that is to be expected. It definitely looks like a bike jacket, but it's low key enough that I don't mind wearing off the bike. I live in the northeast and I've found it to be warm and comfortable for a short ride in the mid forties with just a shirt underneath and jeans. I expect to be wearing it for commuting until the snow flies.

Great 3/4 season jacket
This is an awesome jacket. I will edit this later once it gets a bit cooler. But without the liner this jacket keeps me warm/cool from 50 to 80 degrees. It has kept me dry in light to moderate rain. And over all I am very happy with it. I commute daily about 8 miles each way and this jacket is perfect. Note I got a small, I am 5'6 about 160 with a 38 chest. Small is perfect. I can even fit a sweatshirt under the liner.

Real nice jacket.
First off props to Revzilla for getting this jacket to my door spooky fast with nothing special on the shipping.
The jacket is really comfortable. Good quality and the leather accents are nice. I was looking for a jacket that would work well in cold weather and I think this will do the trick with the insulated liner.
There are a decent amount of pockets and the padding that comes with the jacket is good quality. I'm 6' 195 pounds and the large size fits great but... I really wish the sleeves were at least an inch longer. On a sportbike especially.

Amazing bang for the buck.
This jacket is amazing. I am about 140lbs and 6ft tall. The medium fits me perfect. I believe the jacket also looks better in person than on the site. It is extremely comfortable in the sleeves and throughout the whole jacket. I could see myself wearing the jacket for long periods of time off the motorcycle as well. This jacket I believe is good for all seasons as well. You can layer up underneath and have good protection, as well as stay warm. AND the jacket is waterproof. I don't think it gets much better for the money. I'm surprised they haven't sold out of these already. I would not hesitate to buy again knowing what I know now. It feels like a quality jacket as well.

If you're even looking at this jacket, give it real consideration.
At this closeout price you really can't beat it. It's VERY comfortable, the stretchtech material really inspires confidence too. I feel much safer with this jacket than without. With that in mind i'd like to mention the armor that comes with it, while it is quite heavy, it doesn't slide around everywhere, and generally stays put, and the backpad this comes with is no slouch either, it seems pretty solid to me.
My one gripe about this jacket is the vent zippers, they are the normal metal kind, but they do seem to pose the same problem that Anthony had in the video, they get caught ALOT. Other than that it's great, the styling is simple and universal, great for all styles.
At this price, these should definitely be sold out by now, i would not hesitate to purchase this again.

Comfortable and keeps you warm.
Absolutely love this jacket. Worn it for at least 2 riding seasons. This is my colder riding jacket and works really really well. no complaints in that area. I have also ridden in the rain and stayed dry.
Not the greatest jacket for riding in the summer time. definitely gets warm even with it unzipped fully and the inner liner out, but its doable. would highly recommend this jacket for colder weather riding or even on rainy days. Only thing I don't like about it is the styling isn't the greatest, but other than that great jacket. price isn't that bad either.
