Fox Racing Titan Sport Jacket
Great Air Flow. You forget you have it on.
Quite light, and air flow is great. The protective pads are strong but allow you to move without any restrictions.
If you are leaning over the shoulder pads can get in the way of turning your head with a full faced helmet.
No pockets was annoying because some days I had no where to put my keys depending on the pants I was wearing.

Fits the bill.
I am 6' and just shy of 190lbs. I got the large, and sort of wish I'd gotten the XL. It's JUST good enough that it's not worth it to me to send it back. The sleeves are a tad short and if I got fat, I'd have to step up. These are made for kind of slender guys. However, that does keep the mesh from bunching up and restricting air flow, and all the armor is in pretty much the right position (shoulder and elbow pads are a little high, I have broad shoulders and long arms; but if I had the XL, it would be baggy in the waist. same old story)
All in all, great for the money and I have no doubts about its abilities to do what it is designed to do. I'd recommend it.

Highly adjustable fit, solid build
I love the jacket and the medium fits me well (6' 175lb). Great for summer sport touring and I just add layers under/over as needed. I got the white and it looks great, and I get compliments and questions from time to time.

Bought this at the last minute for a 4 day camping/dualsport trip because the weather was going to be hot. All I had up to that point was my Rev'it armored jacket, which is a great product but too hot for offroad riding when the temps get above 80. The Titan jacket gave me great protection, but was so much cooler! With a motorcycle jersey on top, it was like riding in a T-shirt. Made the ride way more enjoyable.

I've worn the Fox "Jacket" on one road trip. It fits small so it is snug. All the armor is in the right places so in the event I ever to need it, it should be there. The design allows you to tighten the jacket as needed to fit you. I'm 6'7" and 245 lbs and not a long torso; it could have been a little longer to make it a bit more comfortable. Overall, it does what I was looking for; protection under my riding jacket.

This item is dope! Good airflow, durable but not bulky when riding. Nice little substitute from wearing the leather jacket on a hot day. Snug fit....VERY SNUG! Like others have posted, opt for one size larger when ordering. Overall, good product!

Good gear, versatile piece of safety equipment.
I have not, nor do I intend to crash test this. I will again have a dual sport bike and this will be good when that day comes again. But for now I am on my sport touring bike. I was looking to upgrade my jacket and equipment for a 2000 mile four day trip. My textile jacket has armor but the back is that thin foam they all come with and should be upgraded and it gets hot. I would like to buy a higher end textile jacket but even good ones need armor upgrades adding to cost and there are still days when mesh or rain are the better idea.
I like layering with ski and other clothing. As a former ski patrolman I have coped with all types of weather conditions and would figure out what gear works. With this jacket I reasoned I could put textile, mesh, leather, rain gear or a jersey over it and have protection with chest and a large back protector, and not be out $500 to $800 for a jacket that I might not want to wear every ride and most likely would want an armor upgrade. The XXL fit me, 6', 230# not a big gut, without adjustment. It goes on and off very easily so I could take it off before going into a convenience store and not look like a linebacker or packing a shotgun. I like the kidney belt and large back protection and it is very comfortable. I wore it under a leather jacket and hi-viz vest for the trip with temps from 48 to 85. The leather was warm at 85, but not at highway speeds. This jackets breathes very well. I wore it 4 days covering 2000 miles on interstate and the two lanes of WV and OH. This jacket allows me to layer depending on the ride and conditions.
When a Lexus SUV on I-84 in Waterbury, CT decided to slide into my left lane without bothering to notice my red pants and orange vest that makes me look like a highway construction barrel I was glad to have this under the leather in the event of a get off. So I am all for looking like a linebacker for protection. It is way better than a T shirt and leather vest I see so often. (The wife says it looks like a superhero. I love her.)
