Fox Racing Titan Sport Jacket
I'm 6'2", 195lb with a 44" chest. The large fits perfect and has multiple adjustments to fine tune the fit. Nice and snug as it should be for under the jersey protection. I don't even notice it while riding. Have used it in 90+ degree weather and it has great air flow even with jersey over the top.

Saved my a$$ets
This is an excellent product. I got cut off by a left turning vehicle at an intersection at 45 mph when the light went yellow. I impacted their rear quarter and flew/slid a good 50 feet. The elbow pad took most of the impact and my knee guards took the rest. I did receive minor elbow rash when the elbow guard rolled. The bike was totaled, I walked away. I am still wearing it two years later. It is adjustable around the arms. The only thing that I dislike is that the kidney belt Velcro doesn't always cooperate. It is awesome in the summer heat of Virginia. If it is a little chilly I just wear a cotton long sleeve underneath. It fits under a windbreaker/raincoat if the weather turns ugly. Over all I am highly satisfied with this armor and will buy another once this one wears out.

love! a pleasure to wear.
Super happy with my Fox body armor! Wearing as protection in the summer in NY over minimal layers and find it cool with plenty of air flow. I am riding a motor so on a mountain bike when you are working harder it may feel hot? I plan to wear it under an oversized leather motorcycle jacket in the fall. As a women, 5' 9" and 140 pounds I bought a mens medium. I would have liked the sleeves a bit longer. My wrists feel very exposed....I would prefer wrist armor on the jacket. Honestly it's a bit of a boob crusher since the front plates are made for a man. But the look is very flattering if you go for the power rangers/intergalactic warrior look. Now if this little plastic and net contraption actually protects you if you ride the tar....is another question.

Quick and convenient
I'm only 90 miles into using this but so far I am a fan. I'm an older rider and I want all the protection I can get. With this I could whip it on, throw a jersey over it and ride. Plus, I get more protection than separate pads because no way would I buy all of these as standalone pads. I was riding in 90+ heat and though it is hotter than just a jersey with elbow pads I wasn't suffering. I had two crashes, one into sagebrush and the other on a rock hill climb--neither probably really challenged this jacket but I came away fine from both.
My one gripe is the zip-up mesh material that goes under the pads only goes down to mid-gut, above the belly button, with the back strap below that. This was just an odd feeling, like it was always riding up (a bit of a gut doesn't help) and I found it a bit irritating. I think maybe the mesh should have gone lower. That wouldn't stop me from recommending or buying again though.

I just got back from a hot summer trail ride on the WR250 wearing this jacket and I am now a huge fan. I wore it over a underarmour t-shirt, and did not use a jersey on top. The ventilation was great, and the XL fit me great. I'm 6-3 and 205lbs. I low sided off road on some dirt and rocks at about 20mph and slid to a stop on my right side. the elbow and shoulder armor did it's job perfectly, as did the back plate. I got right up and kept going. once I got home I hosed it off, and it's essentially as good as new. the mesh that holds it together had no problems or signs of distress.
While i didn't hurt my ribs, that is an open spot. I think it is on almost everything, so can't really fault it for that.
This is the best money I've spent on gear, and Revzilla knows I've got a weakness for gear.

Worth the money. Great protection.
At 6'4" and 215 lbs, the XL large fits me great. Very comfortable and the weight is well distributed. Doesn't feel heavy at all.
It is hot if there's no breeze or if you are not moving. But, with a little airflow, it cools down nice.
Took a pretty hard digger off my bike onto my right shoulder and the armor did it's job. I felt it, but I was able to continue the day riding without any lingering pain.

Solid flak jacket
Ruggedly made with great coverage. Definitely an upgrade from a competing product that I'd had for six years. The Fox jacket inspires confidence and is smartly designed and attractive.
Might run slightly small... I'm an L in a T-shirt but the XL Fox jacket is a perfect fit for me.

Quality, affordable protection.
The sizing for me runs a little small, I was a little closer to the top of the measurements so I went up a size and it fits nice and snug, I recommend this for good affordable protection. It's winter time here in Nebraska so I can't testify to the hot weather airflow but I think it will be fine.
