Olympia Airglide 4 Jacket (Size XS Only)
Great Jacket for all Seasons
I bought this jacket with the intentions of it being able to be my only jacket. After receiving it I am very please and think it will work for all of my riding. The fit is a fit snug, I wear XL shirts and jackets but went with a XXL on this and am very glad I did.

This was my second Airglide 4. I initially had the silver and pewter to match my silver motorcycle. I sold the bike and the coat, because I bought a black bike. I bought the black Airglide 4 because it simply works. Hot summer days with no liners allow wind to come into the coat. I have a 2015 H-D Road Glide with lower and upper fairings so when it's 55 degrees up to around 75 I'm comfortable with just the first liner. 40 to 55 I used to wear all three liners until I bought heated gear.
The fit is nice. It is a little poofy at the chest, but that's not a deal breaker. I cannot strap the collar with all all the liner in. I can strap with just the first liner.
Everything else works, looks nice and provides me with protection if I go down.

Everything as advertised and great to purchase from Revzilla
Order this jacket on a Friday and had it Monday. I have only worn the coat a few times, but it seems great. We are still in chilly riding weather here and the coat kept me warm. The padding seems nice (I have not had to try it fortunately).
Zippers all work nice and smooth. Lots of adjustments to give a great fit.
Overall very happy.

nice jacket for hot weather to mild cold
This jacket is really nice and I would call it a 3-4 season jacket if your winters are not to cold. Great for all day riding as you can easily remove layers or add layers as temp changes. I have not had an opportunity to test in wet weather yet. The only down fall (which is corrected on the new version) is the rain layer is on the inside only so the outer mesh shell will be soaked in wet weather. Overall I really like this jacket, it fits well and looks good.

First mesh jacket - seems like a winner
Since this is the first mesh I've owned and it's new, it's tough to rate without a basis for comparison. And since I haven't taken a slide in it, I don't know how well it protects. But all that said...
I spent way too much time shopping for this jacket since there are a bazillion alternatives. I ended up with this Olympia based on features/dollar and I'm pretty happy with that decision.
+ separate rain and thermal liners.
+ rain liner can be worn outside the jacket.
- the jacket & liners fill one of my side bags. (Oh well...)
+ comes with full set of decent armor (could be better)
+ it's definitely hi-vis: that neon yellow really stands out.
The fit's good. The XL size is a tiny bit snug on me with both liners zipped in but the sleeve length is very good. I'm 6 foot, 215 lbs, with fairly long arms. (Shirt 16L, suit jacket 42L.)
I was a little worried about the high collar (mentioned by codtide's review). He was right: my neck is too short for comfort too. But there's a velcro tie-back so you don't need to close the collar if you don't want to. When I did that and left the zipper down a little, the collar was no problem. I'm thinking I'll start liking that collar next November.
The first day I wore it, the temp started out in the high 50s and ended in the high 70s. (Ain't spring great?) I was riding with no liners in the jacket. The air flow was good. It was a touch chilly in the low ground in the AM but it was still comfortable in the PM sun and traffic. I bought a mesh to avoid the heat and weight of leather and that part seems to have worked out well.
Construction looks pretty good. It's a heavy jacket: 5 pounds without the liners and 7 pounds with both zipped in. It's pretty easy to get the liners in & out (in the house, at least; might be a different story on a windy roadside). I didn't see any loose threads hanging and the zippers work well. The back protector is dense foam - probably worth replacing that with a harder piece.
Other reviewers have mentioned that the cell phone pocket is a joke. Yep! One look and I didn't even try my Galaxy Note 4. But since I have a phone mount, no big deal.

Commute use Jacket
Since getting the Jacket I've been pretty satisfied with the fit and the airflow as a commuting jacket. I like the Vertical side pockets over the Horizontal and the option of wearing the rain liner either over or under the jacket which makes it convenient if I need to pull over in a sudden rain and put on rain gear.

Love jacket, fit was small and tight
After looking at many mesh jackets in all price ranges, I called RevZilla to ask questions. The staff was awesome. I chose this jacket in a size small because that is what my measurements called for. Jacket arrived in five days like they said. All excited to open box and try on jacket.......bummer, jacket was way to tight....could not move my arms. I called customer service and they sent out a size medium the next day. Five days later jacket arrive....PERFECT FIT...... I called customer service once again to thank them for their knowledge of gear and their prompt service. Five STAR company to do business with. Thank you. Dr. Wayne

I really like it, the hands are a bit too long and jacket is a bit too short for me but it is ok. I think I'll change the back protector to a hard one because it is very soft. Overall it was a great purchase.
