Solid riding jacket Bought this for my girlfriend and we have been using it for a couple of weeks through a rainy European summer. The fit chart was spot on. She likes the style and comfort. The temperature has been in the 70s and 80s though so I can't speak to high heat or colder temperatures. Haven't had her with me in the rain yet to comment on the waterproof status. Overall though great bang for the buck. July 14, 2014
Do it all, sporty, riding jacket This is a great 3 season jacket. Zippers work great. The fit is wonderful with good protection. It is flexible and comfortable and it looks great on my girlfriend. She especially likes the wind and waterproof/breathable jacket liner. You can remove the liner, pack the outer jacket in the pannier and have a sporty all occasion rain/wind breaker that is restaurant friendly. Overall an excellent value. July 1, 2014
Great summer jacket, however... I recently purchased this jacket to replace a worn vented jacket that was beginning to disintegrate on the inside. My husband has been suggesting that I try Olympia for the past several years, since his has held up so well. I figured, "Well, I'm in my 30's...might be time to move past the mandatory pink and purple jackets in favor of an eye-gougingly bright yellow color.." This one is bright. As in, you might want to wear sunglasses or avoid looking directly at it kind of bright. Which is WONDERFUL! I'm finally being seen at intersections, rather than being seen through. However, it is a little short in the torso, which is tough to get used to after the other brand loyalty I've held for so many years. I initially ordered a medium (I'm 5'3", 150ish), and the wide shoulders made me feel like a linebacker. So I returned it for a small. The small makes me feel a little less like a football player. The arms are a tad short as well, but not unmanagable. I like that I'm able to cinch the rear velcro tabs in a bit, to feel less like I'm riding in an armored potato sack. It's not as nice as the "corset" type adjusters I've had (which help even more to distiguish myself as a female rider), but it works. I also wish it had at least one waterproof pocket. Not every day is a sunny day, and pop-up summer storms are a normal occurence around here. Overall, yes, I would recommend this jacket, Especially if you're a more petite rider. June 22, 2014
As Advertised Protects and looks good. Nice they make a matching Men's / Woman's jacket. Looks to be good quality though we have just started wearing them. June 16, 2014
My wife loves it This is our fourth Olympia jacket (warm weather and cold weather jackets for both me and my wife), and the quality is every bit as good as I knew it would be. It fits good, has plenty of airflow, and the hi-vis yellow really gets the attention of car drivers. June 9, 2014
Incredible airflow and great adjustments I love love love this jacket! I'm 5'2" with a generous bust (38DD) and a bit of a tummy (I admit it!) so it's always difficult to find a jacket that fits the bust and waist without being a huge tent. I ordered a 2XL based on measurements but the bust and shoulder was a bit too big. So I will have these altered (easy fix). The waist and hips were right on especially with the velcro adjustments, elastic waist and gussets. The sleeves were just right lengthwise in my riding position and the velcro straps held the elbow armor right in place. The high vis is awesome and the air flow is incredible (I took the zip in liner out tho). The velcro strap at the neck is a bit uncomfortable so I just don't use it (the strap folds back on itself and stays secure). I really like the look (hour glass yes!). I still tend to perspire while I'm sitting at a light, but if it doesn't evap during the ride (which actually feels rather nice), the inner mesh dries really fast once you take the jacket off. Delivery from Revzilla was right on schedule. Highly recommend this jacket. Thanks Revzilla! June 6, 2014
Great for the Israeli HOT summer I have this jacket for around 5 years, in heavy duty, everyday rides. It's truly ventilated for the Israeli very hot summer, even in black. Great flattering design for a woman's figure. I crashed with it a few times in speeds up to 100 km/hr and went back riding right after. The armors are strong and do their job. The inner piece is not enough when the weather gets cold, though. Not even in the Israeli winter. It's ok for mid seasons, but for winter I have another jacket. I wear size xs and it fits me just right. Thinking of buying a new one of that same model. March 14, 2014
Nice airflow - vibrant hi-vis for added visibility is key. Great jacket for summer and cooler weather riding. Liner provides rain-proofing and decent wind protection. Roomy enough to layer underneath for added warmth, without being bulky. October 10, 2013

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 then 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
