Fly Fifty5 Jacket
Good all season so far with just one or two small issues
I've had the jacket about a month now. It's very comfy. Maybe a bit large for me. I'm 6'4 260lbs and the xxl is just maybe a bit large for me in the waist. Chest is perfect.
Speaking of the waist, the waitband tighteners don't do much unless you are bulging in that area. The zipper is consistent and nice, but the inner liner zipper has come undone from the bottom twice now while I was riding. I didn't notice until I was taking the jacket off but it made it a pain. More annoying than anything.
Buttons and snaps all work great with one exception-- this morning the button that snaps at the neck unexpectedly fell out without warning. I'm still trying to figure out how that happened.I remember taking the jacket off this morning and it still being on there. Other than that the buttons are great.
The thermal liner in the pockets are great as phone screen cleaners! And hand warmers. Those too. I live in Minnesota and in the past two weeks we have had swings as low as 35 and highs up to 90. The jacket handles the cold without a problem, just wear the thermal liner and maybe a hoodie underneath.
The thermal liner is warm. Very warm. I won't wear it if the weather is above 50. It's a breeze getting out, but putting it back in is a little annoying if you have large fingers.
Armor protection is good but I haven't fallen so I can't speak to it's usefullness. As of now it remains as hidden body protection.
Overall I think it's a great jacket, especially on this budget deal. The only reason it got 4 instead of 5 stars is the button unexpectedly falling out. Luckily it came with extras and I'll be replacing it tonight.

Fits great but wish it had more air flow on hotter days
Love the fit and it looks great. Very warm with the liner in. The only thing I'd like is more vents on the front for the hot days.1

Would buy again and again...
Extremely comfortable. Has kept me warm in 30-40 F temp. Without inner liner, air flow is good enough to keep me comfortable in the upper 80's F. Have not yet had the opportunity to wear in dead of winter or extreme summer heat. At 6 ft, 175lb, large fits well, maybe slightly tight with liner. Wish sleeves were a bit longer. But imagine the next size up would be too big.
Awesome buy, awesome price. Would highly recommend.

This is my first jacket and I was nervous of buying shipping it back.
This is my first time buying motorcycle gear. I watched Tony's video and bought the jacket and it is a true fit. It looks good and fits me perfect. I live in NJ and weather is still cold however, I went for a small ride 2 days and jacket kept me warm. Tony seems to have wealth of knowledge of all the products and I bought helmet and it is a true fit as well. From now on I will do all my shopping from Revzilla with out hesitation.

Lots of features
I'm about 5"7 195 pounds so the large was perfect for me. Arm length was perfect as I've seen some people who are taller say they were short. Inside liner keeps you warm below freezing and comes out so you can wear this in warmer weather. Material is conforming to your body so it doesn't seem to construct movement. Lots of pockets and the liner is fairly easy to remove and reattach though it takes a few minutes to do it properly.

A Quick Size Note
I bought this and am extremely happy with the jacket. I haven't actually worn it riding, but it is very comfortable, stylish and has decent protection.
My issue was what size to get. I am about 5' 9.5'', 169Ibs, 38 in chest and 33/34 sleeve. I first ordered the medium and thought the chest was good, but the sleeves were too short. I exchanged thinking the chest on the large would be huge but it was actually perfect. Loose enough with the liner in that I could wear a hoodie under it but not at all baggy like I thought. Without the liner, it might be a bit loose but the large feels like it was made for me. Hope this helps someone who had my same problem (long and lanky..)
