A well made jacket with a look to match
Great overall value and fit with no exterior advertising.

Minor flaws, but worth it.
The jacket looks and feels great. I was hard pressed to find something as casual and functional with this amount of armor. The airflow is fantastic and I've puttered around town on 100 degree days without a problem. When it gets warm and you start to sweat, the interior mesh wicks away moisture, so you never really feel sweaty.
Those front pockets are a pain to get into though. Sure they provide for a lot of storage, but I don't know how long that velcro is going to hold out. There's a lanyard inside one of the breast pockets as well that, after about a week, is about to break. The seam tying it to itself and around the lanyard is poor and the plastic protector piece to prevent damage never stayed where it was supposed to. (A quick knot above the plastic piece by tying the lanyard around itself helped, but it won't last long).
I'm an athletic build, and the jacket can be a little tight at the upper arms. The liner for cold riding hasn't been on the road yet, but I barely fit into the jacket with it in and only a Tshirt. Length was good though, so I had to decide to deal with it being a bit tight or send it back and gamble on getting an oversize XL.
Overall, it's great... for now. I just hope it survives the season.

Excellent cold weather jacket
I bought this jacket for the mild winter in South Texas. I rode 35 miles in 32 degree weather last night and couldn't feel the cold at all. The zip in liner kept me warm even at highway speeds. I'll be buying the pants very soon. My only complaint is that the sleeves are a little short. I have longer winter gloves so they covered the gap. I ride a 2013 Sportster 48 with low bars so I'm reaching a little farther than normal cruiser riders. I'm 6'1, 210 and the XL is a good fit with the exception of the sleeves.
