Excellent product for the money Good fit made better with tabs and zippers, constructed to last forever, very comfortable in spite of the armor plates, great ventilation without the inner jacket, which is sharp enough to wear as a standalone when standing out in safety green isn't necessary. It will be months before I run out of impressive little special features to find, all designed to make this coat adaptable to al kinds of bodies. Mine is 5'7", 125#, and small is spot on. March 17, 2015
Style, comfort, quality This coat is comfortable whether you are riding alone or riding two up. The pads are comfortable and give me a feeling of safety. The coat is warm enough to handle Alaska Spring and Fall and good for our summer season too. I am 5'5", 135 pounds, long waist, broad shoulders and medium fits me well. This coat gives me what I am looking for at a reasonable price. January 27, 2015
Nice stylish jacket with good features and protection An excellent choice for a 3 season protective and nice female styled jacket, plenty of air flow with the waterproof liner off which can be used as a stand alone WP jacket, despite it doesn't fit me right and I can't upload a picture of me using it, it is just because I purchased it for my wife, and it fits perfect on her, she love it; it does a good match with her Olympia Airglide pants with the usual brand's quality and finish. January 19, 2015
Love the hi viz color-but the NECK, UGH The fit allows for customization in several areas so that is great if you want to wear it over a heavier layer for cold weather. I am happy with the color because to me, its all about the vizability. The jacket seems to be high quality that will last. I am on the thin side, and I still find the neck to be too wide (tall) and too small. I do want to be able to fasten up the neck to protect from wind, but when i have the velcro piece pulled over so it attaches, I find it to be a bit tight, also, bulky, so my helmet neck strap and this neck leave me feeling a bit choked :-/ January 11, 2015
Fits, performs, and great value I saw this jacket on a rider while riding in the EU in international orange and, as replacement jacket was in order, I looked for that jacket on line. Apparently the Orange was a show special, and had been updated to what I call standard colors and features. We chose hi viz yellow. Jacket fit snug in large, but my wife has a difficult build to fit and she was delighted, noting the extra length with a flare that fit comfortably down on the hips that gives the feeling of a coat rather than a jacket. This jacket is a combination between full mesh panels and fabric, but gives great air flow and comfort for warm riding. A stylish rain/wind liner that can be worn separately is a nice bonus. This company makes really nice, high quality gear and we would recommend them highly, along with Revzilla to buy them from. January 5, 2015
Great! Bought on Closeout Because I bought this on Closeout at $170-ish, I feel like I have gotten a lot more than my money's worth. This jacket lets in amazing air flow, has protection in all the right places, and since I got the hi-vis I feel seen. I haven't tested it out in the rain but it also has a water-proof liner which is removable; I find that even until 40 degree weather, this jacket makes my torso feel pretty warm when I have a thin hoodie underneath. The liner is pretty wind proof; however, the liner is pretty ugly on its own so I wouldn't wear it outside of the jacket. The style is pretty nice too because the design has curved vertical lines which help to accentuate a women's curves; granted, the CE shoulder protection does make you look like you have quite broad shoulders but that's the cost for protection. Have not kissed asphalt while wearing this, thankfully, so no idea on how it holds right now. I am 5'2" and 130lb, and XS fit me PERFECTLY. November 11, 2014
Good Value Purchased this for my wife for 2-up riding. Bottom line: She likes it, it fits her well, and it offers an acceptable level of protection. She's not particuarly tall, and her "girls" are a factor in the size. Olympia did a good job in thier sizing/proportions -- arms a good length, not too long. Good fit elsewhere. True-to-size. The armor seems very solid, given the relatively low price of the jacket -- elbows, shoulders, and back. Fit adjustment system keeps that armor well in place. No rain testing yet, but she likes the liner option. Easily a 2.5 season jacket. October 6, 2014

Jacket Size Guidelines
We suggest you use these size charts as a general guide. Variables in weight distribution and height may alter the appropriate size range indicated. As a general rule Olympia Jackets are designed in America, with an "American" body in mind. As such, you will find that Olympia tend to fit more generously than European brands (such as REV'IT!, Dainese, Alpinestars and Spidi). If you are in between sizes, we recommend to you to err on the smaller side.

Pant Sizing Guidelines
Olympia pants fit true to size. If you intend on using them as over pants, please go one size up.

Inseam Lengths
Olympia pants are cut with generous inseams to accommodate various riding positions. Olympia EZ hem bottoms (can be hemmed up to six inches) and adjustable knee armor help riders achieve a custom fit
