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
Good jacket - Olympia Women's Switchback Jacket High Viz Color EXCELLENT Product - only thing is that I Wish it came in neon green/black color. September 22, 2014
Recomment this jacket I bought this jacket strictly for a summer jacket. Haven't had to try out the rain liner yet. I bought the hi-viz yellow, and can be seen easily. The torso is a bit short for my tastes, but it is cut nicely for a woman and can be adjusted for a slimmer fit or more square cut. I'm 5'4 and 140 lbs. I bought the medium. My husband also upgraded the armour when I bought it to the D30 which is a little smaller in the pockets provided, so I have to put some possible velcro in them to help shorten them and keep them in the proper place. Great mesh jacket. September 16, 2014
Great summer jacket for the money I used this jacket for most of the summer in Reno. It has great ventilation. Armor is adequate but could be a little beefier. This is pretty much a summer only jacket. Comfortable down to the low 70's. Pockets are ventilated and not water proof. It has a water repellent bag for your wallet and or cell phone. Will hold both. Not too impressed with the bag thou. It only has a Velcro fastener, which won't do a very good job of keeping water out if you run into a rain storm. I suggest you keep a good zip lock bag with you. But all-in-all it's a good functional jacket. September 15, 2014
Great jacket for ladies in hi-viz I love this jacket. Styling is great, flows great air and is well thought-out. I haven't tested the rain liner in the rain, but it does a great job of cutting cool air and extends the usefulness of the jacket in that regard. I could have used 1/2-1" more length in the sleeves, but since it's not a cold weather jacket that's a minor issue. My arms may be a tad longer than most. Jacket appears to be very well made and I really like the fact that the rain liner can be worn separately as a windbreaker or light jacket. It's also not quite as weighty as the mesh jacket it's replacing without sacrificing protection. I do feel protected in this jacket, which is the point. I don't think you can go wrong. September 13, 2014
Fit is great and air flow is great I got the high visibility jacket and I love it, when I ride with a group, my friends tell me they can see the yellow really well. I have worn the jacket in cooler weather and really warm weather and have had no issues with staying cool or keeping warm. I would highly recommend this jacket. September 8, 2014
Terrific choice Surprisingly cool on a hot day once riding. Looks very safe, both from the beautiful design for the high-viz and with the armor, which covers exactly where it should. The shoulders feel slightly on the tight side, even with the liner out, but didn't want it so big that the armor would shift off the shoulders and not give appropriate coverage. I could wish the jacket to be a couple inches longer, though. Definite keeper - very pleased with the purchase. August 4, 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
