Olympia Airglide 4 Jacket (Size XS Only)
I usually wear 2xl and sometimes 3xl and I got the 3xl and it's still a little on the tight side but other than that the jacket is awesome and the airflow is amazing if you have all the layers out. I was riding in just a thermal in 30 degree weather with all the layers in and I was fine. Not so much warm but not freezing. Great jacket for the money will be getting the next one

Have not gotten to test durability yet, luckily. Other than that very happy
It seems very well constructed and designed, and has an ample number of pockets. I will say that the pockets could be a little bigger. I don't have a large phone, but if it was a phablet I don't think it would fit. The fit is just right for me. I am 5' 10" and 165 and bought a medium.

Jacket that ticks all the boxes
I have been using the Airglide 4 jacket for about 3 months now and I have to say it is spot on bang for the buck. The jacket fits nice and has ample padding at the right places. Multiple pockets to hold all the small items are helpful too. I have tried using it with all the layers and just the outer shell and it does its job perfectly. The only complaint is the smaller than normal cell phone pocket.
I am 6'1" and weigh 200 lbs, the XL size fits perfectly for me.

Nice 3 Season Jacket
I like that this jacket has a removable liner and a removable rain jacket. When cold you can leave all the items in and stay warm. When hot just remove for a light, breathable jacket with good protection. Hoping to never use the protection but we'll see. The only negative I have is the velcro at the neck. I can't seem to get it as comfortable as I would like. Overall a nice jacket with good adjust-ability.

Great Air Flow, everything else seems decent as well!
I can tell I have it on while moving. The vented panels circulate air like crazy. The added flexibility of the separate rain layer and thermal layer make the jacket very flexible. The pockets are quite small on the external chest and hand. I have to jam my thin gloves into them. The internal breast pocket is is handy, but the mesh pulls out whenever I pull my phone out of it. Have yet to use it in the rain, but it was more than toasty with the thermal layer on a few 50 deg F days on the way to work (sub 40 mph speeds). All in all, happy with the purchase.

Great adaptable jacket
I recently moved to Michigan and we have so many different temperatures throughout the seasons. I needed a jacket that could adapt as much as possible. I love the multiple liners and how versatile this jacket is. The fit is true to size and worked great with all the armor pieces fitting into place perfectly. My only "negatives" that I can find, is that with multiple layers and the way the zippers are laid out, it does take a second to figure out which one is which. The neckline is smooth, but I have found with it zipped up all the way it digs a little into my throat, but it could be just me, I simply adjust the zippers and it is fine. I would HIGHLY recommend this jacket and goes well beyond the price point, I was shocked how nice it was actually (I previously had a much more expensive Joe Rocket, and I actually like this one better!)

Struggled with what size and Jacket to order
Love the Jacket. Stopped into a motorcycle store a while back and tried on an Airglide XL and a 2XL jacket. Also tried on the DAKAR. To me, the DAKAR is a coat, long in the fit when seated on a bike. The Airglide is a jacket, shorter in that seating position. Especially with the heat where I live, the Airglide was a better option. But both very comfortable.
I'm 6'2" and 212 pounds. The Airglide XL (if all layers are in) is a bit snug. The 2XL a bit loose. Sitting in an upright riding position (I ride a BMW 1200LT), the XL didn't bunch up on me like the larger jacket. I felt the shoulder pads on the 2XL weren't where they were needed while sitting. If I was buying a jacket to walk around in, I'd get the bigger one; on a bike the snugger one makes sense.
I was also interested in how the jacket would fair on hot days. Headed to the coast yesterday in high 90's temperatures. Even with my full fairing, I could feel air coming into the mesh panels of the jacket. Still pretty warm, but considering the temperatures, not uncomfortable. I opted for the High Viz color, and it looks good! Overall, impressed with the jacket!

Very Good Jacket.
I purchased this jacket based on other reviews and the looks of the jacket. I don't regret it. I ordered a 3XL and the fit with the liner was pretty snug but plenty warm in 40 degree weather. I weighed about 290 then and am 6'3". Have since lost close to 40 pounds and the jacket fits much better now. Two minor complaints. My wife has a mesh jacket and her jacket has a several inch extension to keep the lower back covered, I would love it if this jacket had a similiar lower back extension. Also, the liner sleeves attach at only one point inside the sleeves so that when you remove the jacket, the liner tends to ride up the sleeve several inches. My wife's mesh jacket attaches in two spots at the wrist. She doesn't have the same issue. Otherwise, this is a high quality jacket. Airflow is adequate but I have not worn it in temperatures above 85 yet.
