Fox Racing Titan Sport Jacket
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.

For Dirt & Street this jacket is awsome... I feel very protected. Under the jersey is discret... And look great for a street bike... I recomend... Double check for correct size...

Great Quality vs Price
Great quality construction, very comfortable, great air flow for hot days, its light, even you can wear it and you don't even know that you have a protection vest on.

Saved Limb and Rib
Wore this armor at Rawhyde school and I can attest it took a beating, which my body didn't have to take. Fit is snug by design, but would have liked a bit more length in the torso. Was riding in the Mojave with a lot of off-road miles and temps in the low 90's. Airflow was good with limited heat build up. Flexibility/range of motion was good, but arms over head moment is limited - get a buddy to help you don/doff a jersey.
Saved my ribs in a sand wash went I had a come off onto rocks. The armor was left with a ding from my landing and my ribs were sore for a day. Without this protection, I'm sure it would have been much worse - broken ribs likely.
