Nice Jacket Great Shipping Ordered an XL first. Was to tight around collar (I'm 6'6'' 210Lbs.) exchanged for 2XL. Fits much better around the neck. Riding in AZ and this stays sufficiently cool when at speed. I get more flow with my Tourmaster Draft Air and it fits a little better at the neck. I don't have its liner though. I look forward to fall riding with the Baron and the liner. Love that there is no external Logos on this jacket. This is the look I wanted. Revzilla has AMAZING shipping here. The exchange for me was painless. Will be doing business with them again. August 7, 2014
Gr8 jacket!! Love the jacket, don't like the velco pockets wished they had zippers. No jacket is cool @110degrees. August 4, 2014
Flow I like this jacket! Good style. Good protection for a mesh jacket. Like others say, with the liner in the arms are a little tight, but not a deciding factor. With the liner in, it keeps me warm, I think I rode in the lower 50's with it. Without the liner, I'm good to about 100 deg. as long as I'm riding - when stopped it warms up, but that's just the way it is - soak your t-shirt underneath and the air-flow kept me ok on 104 deg. ride through southern Utah. I'm not putting my leather back on until October! July 28, 2014
Great summer riding jacket for the price I received this jacket as a gift, and have really enjoyed it. I'm a little over 6' tall, and weigh about 240. I was a little smaller around the waist when I received it, so I got a large. The large still fits me fairly well #I just have to suck in the gut while zipping#. It's comfortable, and the mesh allows for a great amount of airflow to keep me cool. The removable lining inside is good for cool weather above 50 degrees. Anything lower, and it might not be warm enough. My only complaint is that it's a little short on me as I've got a longer torso #I believe this is what they call European fit#, but even so it doesn't ride up, and when I'm standing it stays right at my waist.

Great jacket for hot summer days I bought this jacket for the hot muggy NC summertime. I wanted some protection but didn't want to burn up at same time like I do in my leather jacket. This mesh jacket is perfect. Took a 3 day ride in 90 degree weather. The mesh is almost like wearing a t-shirt once you're moving. So much air flow! Plus it doesn't pull on your throat like some jackets I've tried at higher speeds. Fit seems true. I got a medium and I'm 170 lbs, 40 chest, 32 waist. This jacket looks really good too. Some mesh looks too sport bike. This one has a cruiser look to it in my opinion. Armor isn't bulky & doesn't stand out at all. If I had a complaint at all, the liner is waterproof but heavy insulated. Good for cooler weather but since this is a mesh jacket I doubt I'd wear it once hi's are in the 70's. Thus I only use the liner if it rains. But then it would be hot! Liner doesn't breath obviously. You'd roast in a muggy rain ride with the liner in. I did catch some rain & didn't bother w/ the liner. Got a little water in the mesh but dried out so fast since the air blows right thru it. For $99, you won't beat this jacket. June 25, 2014
Small Sizing I purchased this jacket looking for a nice summer jacket and was excited about the styling, price point, and features. I am a very large man so my options are already limited (6'4" 57" chest). I decided to give this a try (3xl size 56-58) since the review video raved about American sizing and generous cut. As I tried to put my first arm in I knew this was anything but the truth. I could barely put both arms in at once, zipping it up was never an option. I was out of town for a week so I cant speak on shipping speed but the ease of the return is great. June 23, 2014
Great value for the money I'm a small guy (5'7", 36" chest). Ordered a Small and the fit is good over a light shirt. Not too loose, not too binding in motion. Great classic look. The included liner fits well. Removing it or inserting it can be a bit of a production. The included armor sits where it should and should provide adequate protection. I'm willing to let someone else test that out though. I will likely upgrade to d3o at some point. Like the liner, changing the armor takes some doing. I have not had the chance to try it on the road but I have no doubt that the mesh will breathe just fine. June 23, 2014
Excellent, particularly for the price A real value. Normally that means cheap or feature deficient but not here. I'm 5'8" and slightly chubby. The video showed a 6'1" guy wearing a large so I ordered a medium. This is right at the limit of snugness for me. Anyhow, removable liner, plenty of pockets, and no cheesy logos, not to mention the armor and padding, make this a great jacket for me. June 19, 2014

URIT: I have ridden through some hard rain with the liner that comes with the jacket, and it keeps you pretty dry. I can't say much for the rest of my body, but my torso stayed dry.. Hope this helps! May 13, 2013

A shopper asked: What size is the back armor? I would want to upgrade it so which pads would fit? Mar 14, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Leigh G: 13" wide by 15" tall. You may not want to upgrade it because it is just lite mesh on the back. There wont be alot of hold back there. I feel the padding that they give you is good enough.

Good luck, great summer jacket.

Eric S: Honestly, I don't wear my back pad. I feel it is a bit in the way with my flexibility of my shoulders. I also do not know if the pad in my jacket would be the same as the pad in a larger or smaller jacket. Sorry I could not help. Mar 17, 2014
