fits very well.

Awesome jacket, would recommend.
I got this jacket in white and I absolutely love it. I Originally bought a size 44 since my last Joe Rocket jacket is a 44, but this one runs big just like the video review mentioned. I'm 5'10", 150 lbs and I ended up going with a size 40 and it fits me a lot better. This is my first time shopping with Revzilla, but so far I'm very pleased.

Heavy, tough, fits like a glove
I'm 6'-1", 175lb with a 40" chest and 32" waist. I wear a 16 34/35 dress shirt. I bought a size 40 and it fits like a glove, even in the waist.. a very European fit. Sleeve length is listed as 32 but fits me fine with arms extended to the bars, so it must run long. The jacket is snug throughout but I'm able to wear #barely# a heavy flannel shirt with the zippered lining in. Have only ridden in summer so far but I anticipate it being warm enough for Las Vegas winters #40s and 50s#. I imagine I'll need something to cover my neck in the cold. I've worn it in 90 deg weather in the dry desert and with all vents open and the main zipper half way down #and no windshield#, I'm pleased with the ventillation. With wrist zippers open I get a lot of airflow up the sleeves. Not uncomfortably hot. Pulling my shoulderblades back occasionally allows airflow to my back too. This jacket is very heavy and well constructed, although I have no experience with riding jackets prior. It can almost stand up on its own. Too heavy and rigid to wear while off the bike, but comfortable when riding, and it provides the protection and visibility I was looking for. The Hi-viz yellow is about the color of a cross-walk sign. Nobody can claim they didn't see me. With my hi-fiz yellow Aria helmet I look like a power ranger. A little wierd looking on my big cruiser, but oh well. We carve out our own style.

Size 42 - Perfect for tall, athletic build
I'm 6'4", thin, athletic build, with long arms. My problem with motorcycle jackets (and any jacket, for that matter) is that either they are 1. Just long enough for my torso, but FAR too loose around the waist, or 2. Fits perfect around the waist, but sleeves and torso length are way too short. With this jacket, in a size 42, I have neither problem. It fits perfectly.
Also, the durable leather and armor construction makes me feel quite safe... perhaps it makes me feel a bit too safe (exemplified by my overly aggressive acceleration when riding).

Fits great and looks good too. Durable material.
Only suggested improvement would be a full collar versus the open style

Excellent jacket for the price
I love my speedmaster. I think it must be one of the best bang for the buck as far as leather jacket goes. The styling of the stealth colorway is superb in my opinion and the fit is also perfect. I'm 6'0'' 155 lbs wearing size 40. Leather looks of very good quality but i'm no expert. Plus revzilla CS helped me a lot on this purchase so big up to them !

Excellent value and great protection.
I bought this jacket as an upgrade from the Reactor 3.0 and I've found it to be an excellent value thus far. It brings all the features I was looking for at a great price.
The leather is full weight. The exterior stitching, zippers and overall workmanship are of good quality and it has a full CE approved armour package.
The Speedmaster zips right up to and looks good with my JR Blaster 2.0 pants. The 8" zipper is adequate here but a full 360 degree unit would be ideal for both.
I'm 5' 11", 215 lbs., muscular build. I ordered the 42 and it fits me perfectly. For reference, my Reactor 3.0 is a large and the Speedmaster is definitely a more snug, athletic fit. I have the black, appreciate the understated styling and have even received a few compliments here and there
One small nit to pick was the left arm armor pocket Velcro-pad stitching came loose, but it was easily mended..
Also, while I did not expect it to be on a par with the Reactor, I found the venting and flow merely adequate. It was difficult to get the most from the shoulder, arm and back vents.
I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a great combination of value, quality, protection and price in their next jacket.
