Saved my Skin
I am buying my second Airglide 4.

My last one spent about 80 feet on the pavement after I high-sided.

After landing on my left shoulder, I spent most of the slide on my chest, with my wrap-around Nolan N90 (that I am also replacing) grinding into the pavement followed by some fairly violent tumbling.

To be fair, the jacket was destroyed, but I wasn’t. It did burn through in the forearm, and I got a minor road-rash on one arm. The armor stayed in place (one elbow pad was ground up but not through), seams melted and popped, but the panels held together.

No serious injuries, but I wish I had something more than jeans on!

Almost Perfect Jacket
This was my first textile mesh jacket and I am pleased to report I made a very good purchase with the Olympia Airglide 4. I've always worn nothing but leather, even in our hot, humid deep-south summers but finally decided to broaden my horizons and get a textile garment. I confess the Olympia Airglide 4 wasn't my first choice having my mind made up for a Tourmaster Intake Air 3. Unfortunately (or perhaps not) my size and color choice (Hi-Viz) were sold-out in the Tourmaster which forced me to look for a runner-up. After MUCH research (thank you Revzilla for your product videos and customer reviews) I concluded the Olympia to be my best alternative.
Kudos to Revzilla for their speedy shipping; I received the jacket in a mere 3 days time from ordering. As I've had the jacket only one week so far and have worn it but three times without the liners in temps ranging from a low of 55*F (w/ light weight, long-sleeve shirt underneath) to high of 90*F (w/ cotton t-shirt) it has performed excellently.
PROS: The build quality is excellent. The color (Hi-Viz) is vibrant and the correct hue (not too yellow). The CE armor fits well and stays in place without shifting around during donning and movement. Although I've not yet used them; the liners fit well when attached and seem quite functional. It's multi-seasonal versatility is one of this jacket's features that helped sell me over it's competitors as well as inclusion of a CE rated back protector. The air-flow is very good (although my only comparison is versus a ventilated leather jacket) and keeps me adequately cooled while riding and during short-term off-bike strolls in the out doors.
SIZING: For me the sizing chart was spot-on. I purchased the Medium and with/without the liners the fit is good. I am a slim build, 5' 9" tall, 155 lbs., 30" waist, 39" chest, arm length: 24" from shoulder joint to wrist (32" from center of neck, along shoulder down length of arm to wrist.)
CONS: Minor details really, for me I wish there was one more larger map-style pocket on the interior R/H side. The Napoleon pocket could use a beefier zipper with a pull-tab. As stated by others, the cell phone pocket is completely too small for current smart phones. And, lastly, the sleeve adjustment tabs at the elbow pads tend to catch against the jacket body from time to time whilst moving about.
Apart from those minor caveats this jacket is about as ideal in function and execution as I was hoping to find in a mesh type jacket and warrants my recommendation to anyone interested in a mesh textile riding jacket.

Best Hi-Vis Jacket out there
I bought the Hi-Vis yellow one, size Small. This is my first motorcycle jacket and I wouldn't trade it for another. I was looking for a good Hi-Vis jacket that I could use 24/7 mainly because in Panama it's mandatory to use a reflective garment between 6 PM and 6 AM. This jacket is awesome, it comes with an internal removable waterproof jacket and a thermal removable liner. The rider can wear all three at the same time or any combination except the thermal alone because it has no zipper to close it. It comes with elbows, shoulders and back protection, which is a great plus, it has 3M reflective piping and it's made of Cordura, which is a great protective fabric.
About sizing, it's true fit based on the chart, however the first thing I did was remove the thermal lining because I live in a place that's 97°F daily. I wear a size Small on shirts and T-Shirts, so if you're planning on wearing the three pieces, consider going a size up.
The jacket does provide a ton of airflow, however, during hot days and heavy traffic, it gets hot inside. But I guess it's because of the Cordura fabrics and I prefer protection and safety over heavy ventilation. It's basically mesh all over inside but the back is not ventilated in the middle because of the back protector.
I consider Olympia to be the best brand if your looking for safety, Hi-Vis and reflective jackets. They have great designs and they really care about the rider's well-being. Besides that, it's a very cool-looking jacket. It's unbelievable the amount of compliments I've received on it. Highly recommended product.

This is the jacket you NEED!
Living in the Mid-Atlantic our weather varies from "Arctic cold" to "When did the outside become a sauna?" Most of us don't ride in this area in the dead of winter because A) we don't like frostbite and B) who like having to clean salt off of their bike after every ride.

So that leaves us to ride usually around early spring through late fall. This jacket is absolutely made for that. So far this season I have ridden in mid 30's through the 80's. In 30 degree weather, all I wore was the mesh jacket and rain liner with a hoodie underneath it. I was warm as could be. Didn't even need the thermal liner My legs were freezing and my neck didn't like it much after about 30min...but my core...nice and toasty.

On the 80 degree day this thing flows air like your basically wearing nothing. The only part you truly feel the jacket was on the shoulders, and I relate that to the nice armor that this jacket comes with. The rest of your body...(eg. where you sweat) was given a nice air blast the whole ride. No sweat stains at all while riding. When I sat in traffic in the sun it started to get warm...but that's every jacket you wear, and those of us running V-Twins know you can never truly escape the heat of that engine.

I know the big complaint about this jacket is that the pocket they give you for your phone is too small for current phones. That's true. Although that being said, the jacket has a napoleon pocket that is more convenient anyway and fits my Galaxy Note 4 with a cover. NO ISSUE.

Overall this is the jacket you need. It really is.

Saved my skin
Today had a van pull out in front of me. Avoided impact with the van but not the pavement. Thanks to the armor in the shoulders and elbows and the tough construction of this jacket, no road rash and only one small hole in the bottom of the sleeve that didn't go all the way through. Some evidence of contact in shoulder and rest of sleeve, but overall one tough jacket and well worth the cost. It works and did what it was supposed to do!

Very good jacket
I read most of the reviews on this jacket before I purchased it. I bought the hi-vis colors for two reasons: 1. I want to be seen, and 2. It allows me to get on Ft. Hood without having to put on an ugly vest. One review that I read said the armor in the jacket was uncomfortable. That was being very kind. Actually, I would say the armor is torturous. For that I gave this jacket a 3 for features. Being forewarned, I also purchased the D3O elbow and shoulder armor along with the jacket, 1000% improvement. At 6', 210 lbs., the jacket fits well and is not as roomy as the video says. However, I like the slightly snug fit as it helps keep the jacket from riding up if you happen to go skidding down the road.

Solid jacket at a good price
I agonized for weeks over a jacket. I was wanting a true 4-season jacket, but the more I researched, the more I realized that true, comfortable 4-season is nearly impossible.

My initial purchase was a Dainese Teren jacket on sale at just under $500. I went back and forth on that jacket for a couple of weeks without actually taking it for a ride. I loved the way it looked and fit, and it felt like a tank, but considering much of my riding is warmer weather, it just seemed like it was going to be too warm for 90% of my riding. I finally sent it back.

A fellow riding buddy has the Airglide 4 and raves about it, so I started looking at it, and considering most of the features were the same as the Teren (removable waterproof and thermal liners), but with a much more breathable shell, and $200 cheaper, I finally decided to go with it.

I initially went with the black, but returned it for the hi-viz, and am happy I did. I'm at the point in my riding career where safety is really paramount to me, so the greater chance I give myself of being seen the better. The fit of the jacket isn't nearly as good as the Teren was, but I knew that going into it. I'm tall and skinny and the Airglide definitely has too much room in it. I'm 6'1 and went with a Medium. Considered a small, but this jacket is already borderline too short since it's waist-length not 3/4 (again, something I knew going into it) so a small would have been too short. Arm length is great, and there is a decent amount of fit adjustment, although with all the liners out, the jacket does fit looser than I would like. Still, though, it's a very comfortable jacket.

Build quality seems solid. I like the included CE back protector. I haven't tested it's waterproof capabilities yet, but based on most feedback I have seen on this jacket, I'm confident it will do just fine in the rain.

Once I convinced myself that I wasn't going to find a do-it-all jacket, I eventually honed in on the Airglide. All things considered, for me, it's the best all around fit. Would definitely purchase again.

3 1/2 season, high quality reflective jacket
For those that value safety when riding, fitment and being conspicuous are two of the most important elements right at the top of the list. These jackets run a bit more than others but there is a reason. Highest quality construction, materials, and air flow are unparallelled. There are two liners, one more for breaking the wind and rain; the inner liner is more for riding in colder weather. The small fit me a little snug but as the representative illustrated, you want those pads close to the body and don't want them to shift in a fall. My wife has had a very hard time finding a jacket that fits her body type. The female version of this jacket has gussets and tightening straps that allows the jacket to go over her hips while ensuring a nice fit in the waist, arms and shoulders. The RevZilla video does a great job of illustrating all of the features of this jacket. It is well worth the money! You wont regret it. .

Great all-in-one jacket!
This jacket does very well at being very versatile. I bought it as mostly a warm weather jacket to wear without the liners, however, the option to put on the thermal liner as well as the waterproof liner make this a very solid 3 season all weather option at a very good price. Air flow without the liners is quite good for warm weather riding, been in mid 80's so far and comfortable. It does get a little warm when stopped however. Since the jacket does have 2 removable liners, sizing can be tricky. I am 6'2", 250 and I had to send back the XL for a 2XL. I was on the border between the two sizes according the chart and hearing the tendency for sizing to run on the larger size I initially bought the XL. It was just a little too snug even with the liners removed and ended up exchanging for the 2XL and am very happy with the fit. It is still a little snug with all the liners in, but not uncomfortable. Since I bought it with the intent of mostly warmer weather use I am ok with it. I think if you size to be very comfy with the liners in, when you take them out the jacket will be too loose. The jacket seems to be very well made with quite a bit of adjustment in the arms and waist. The armor seems to land in the appropriate places as well. My two nit picks would be I think an extra inch or 2 in the length would make it the perfect length, and if you wear the jacket without securing the collar strap, the collar has a tendency to flop around and be mildly annoying. I would definitely buy this jacket again and recommend it to anyone looking for a "one jacket does it all" option.

great jacket.crashed 2 weeks ago.
as i said in the summary i crashed 2 weeks ago.high sided at 25-30 mph.landed on my right side.jacket/armour worked how it was supposed to.perfectly.elbows and shoulder pads absorbed the intial shock of hitting the pavement.rolled twice on to my back .i waited for a second moved all extremities.sat up stood up and i was ok.the fabric held up.no tears what so ever.extremely happy i was wearing this jacket.i have had the jacket for over a year and i have used all 3 liners.rode in 40 degrees and the jacket with the liners have kept me warm.i wear the high vis and have had numerous people come up to and said i could be easily seen while on the road.this includes LEOs and semi truck drivers.no compliants but have two suggestions for olympia the shell liner could use more attachment points around the shoulders/upper chest.and the sleeve velcro strip where it attaches after going through the d-ring could be a litle longer.hope this helps.ride safe

What CE level 2 back protectors will fit the jacket? Prefer to not have to modify the armor, but will trim if necessary.
Daniel H on Apr 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: On the Olympia Renegade Jacket page "Revzilla" responded to a similar question. To paraphrase the Klim D3O Viper T5 Pro Back Protector will be your only level 2 option. You will need to trim the Width (Arms/Wings) down to fit with in the Renegade jacket.

I would like to assume that most if not all Olympia jackets have the same size pocket for their back protector.

Please correct me if i'm wrong. I would love to upgrade this jacket.
I recently purchased this jacket in a size M, and although I'm very happy with the look, fit, and material of the jacket itself, I'm thinking I might want to upgrade the armor for something a little less bulky/clunky than the foam inserts that it comes with. Has anyone else purchased this jacket and swapped out the armor in it for something that's a little more form fitting and lower profile?
A shopper on May 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Just recently upgraded my stock armor in my Airglide with D30 evo at shoulders and elbows and the RUKKA D30 back pad. The D30 armor fits perfectly. The D30 armor is slightly heavier but once you put your jacket on the weight is negligible. The D30 armor is form fitting and comfortable. Air flow is better especially at the back. Superior armor!
I'm wondering how this jacket compares in airflow to the other Olympia Summer Mesh Jackets.
Does it get essentially the same amount of airflow as the Renegade?
Does it get essentially the same amount of airflow as the Switchback 2?
Or do the pockets and other design features of the Airglide create a noticeable difference?
(sarcasm alert) It's nice to see all the color choices Olympia has for SUMMER: dark gray, light dark gray, black, dark light gray, grayish black, blackish gray, etc. I wonder what Russian designer they brought on for their summer collection.

BEST ANSWER: The airflow in this jacket is excellent. Without the liners in summer heat, the jacket is very comfortable at any speed. I've not used the other jackets you mention so I can't give any direct comparison. The engineering answer would be to estimate the sq. in. of mesh material in each jacket and see how close they match. The mesh in the sleeves is probably a key design point. This jacket has more mesh on the back then the front. This also makes it comfortable. I got the light and dark gray combo. Quality overall is excellent.
Hi I am 6' 1" tall have 49" chest 44" waist a bit of a belly and 27" arm was thinking 3x should work good any thoughts ?
A shopper on Jun 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I intially went with 2x and sent it back for a 3x. 5' 7" - 52" Chest 40" waist. For me the chest is where the 2x was to small. Tons of exspansion in arms and decent exspansion in the waist.
Size wise how does it measure up to tourmaster, I have a 5 year old XL that fits well ,are sizes pretty standard ? Thanks

BEST ANSWER: I am 6'0" and 200 lbs. A bit broad in the shoulders (always have trouble fitting suits). I have a Lg Firstgear mesh jacket and a 2XL Revit cheyenne (?) suit. I went with a large in the Airglide. Both the Firstgear and the Airglide fit perfect as shells, which is what I wanted them for. They are OK with the wind/rain liner in and are a little snug with the thermal layer. The revit is my cold weather gear. With everything in, it fits great but I could never wear it as just a shell.
As always, it is a compromise. Buy a little bigger and you could ride it later in the season. The airglide is toasty with both the liners in. But, it will be a bit baggy when the temp climbs. Hope this helps.
Can you wear the outerjacket with the thermal liner only or with the waterproof liner only or do you have to wear water proof liner if you want the thermal liner?
A shopper on Oct 5, 2013
BEST ANSWER: There is no zipper on the thermal liner that allows you to zip up the front of the liner. After trying it out just a minute ago, the only way that I see to zip it is to install it into the wind breaker/waterproof liner and use that front zipper to close things up.

Sorry. Wish I had a better answer. Sounds like you want the thermal liner to be stand alone like the windbreaker is. It's not designed that way.
Getting confused on which size to order for the Airglide 4.
I am 5'8;; 200 lbs , stocky but not round.
Would the large size be the best option?
Thanls

BEST ANSWER: I would suggest that you try a XL. I'm 6' and overweight at 250 with a bit of a belly and I bought a 3XL and it works well for me. I'd suggest that you try that first and if it is too big go smaller. The good thing is that Zilla ships quickly and you receive it within a few days.....or at least i do because I'm in southern Maryland. With their no hassle returns, you can't go wrong in my opinion.
Hope it helps.
Hi,
Im 6 foot 2 and weigh 190 punds. Would I get a large or XL?
A shopper on Aug 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I am 5'10", 215 lbs. , with a gut. I should weigh 180-185. The jacket fits fine in shoulders. Arms a little long. Still have room in mid section but just so. The weight is coming off slowly so jacket is fitting better. I have xl. I like the size because I will put wind proof fleece under instead of their liners. I wear rain gear over when needed. I feel the adjustment straps will make fit perfect. Just got back from 2500 mile run thru ma. , down to va. Up Delaware , Maryland to nj, montauk Long Island back to Gloucester ma. Rain storms ( Olympia rain jacket and pants) and sun alike all worked very well.
Does this jacket have the loops in the back for attaching to pants via belt loop (ie, riding jeans)? I see that it has the zipper for attaching to Olympia pants, but some of their jackets also have loops...?
Brian S on Jan 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: There are two tabs that button into a loop form. One on each side of the zipper Don't know if the are made as belt loops. But you could certainly run a belt through them. They do snap button. Guess it would be possible for those snaps to unbutton. Those are the only loops available.
Besides the back armor, can I upgrade the other armor in the jacket?

BEST ANSWER: I don’t know what more you want to add.
There are also shoulder and elbow pads
that should protect you from a “normal”
fall….This is not meant to be used
on a racing track but should do the job
for street riding.
I hope this helps you
