Scorpion Assailant Jacket
Sweet looking jacket, lots of bang for the buck.
First off, this jacket is superfly. I got the white/red version, and it looks great - I get a ton of looks when riding about.
Fit: I'm a well built guy, and wear XL in most jackets, and this one fits just right, It's a little snug with the liner in, but I've only worn it without it. It's pretty warm here in NC, so I haven't really needed the liner in so far. The only issue I would see is if you needed another layer underneath WITH the liner - I could see it getting very snug. The armor sits just right for me.
Comfort/Finish: Broke in pretty quickly. The leather is really nice, and the neoprene collars at the neck and wrist make it extra comfy. I love the perforation on the sleeves - provides some nice airflow. The vents at the upper back are nice as well. My biggest gripe is the material in the front pockets. It tends to bunch up in the zipper if you're not careful. I think this is a design flaw and I hope they improve this in later iterations.
Features: Love the neoprene collars, the venting, and the internal pocket. The front pockets are nice and roomy as well, and they double as vents as they're super long. There's a snap at the back to attach to your belt loop, but no rear zipper/pants attachment. The top zipper keep is kinda sharp out of the box, so I did a little modification to the velcro so I wouldn't cut my chin. It does tuck under the zipper with a clever little piece of velcro so it stays out of the way when the jacket is unzipped. Cool reflective thingy on the upper back as well that's a nice safety feature.
Overall: I'm very impressed with the jacket and again it looks super sharp when riding. I think it will age well, and it's certainly my go to when the weather drops below 75 or so. Good job Scorpion!

Awesome White Leather
Jacket size Small.
I'm a small guy, and I ride an SV650s for positional comparison.
This Jacket fits me perfectly. Liner in or out, just perfect. Fit and finish is top notch, and looks are very sharp. I love the zip in liner, which actually does quite a good job with the cold. I will ride into the high 40's without adding an extra thermal. It does become quite snug with that one extra layer, but I don't notice while riding, just before and after riding.
Wish the liner had a high collar to keep the cold wind from going down my chest.
Zip cuffs are fast and smooth. Neoprene edges are nice on the skin. Armor stays in place and feels very solid.
During the summer having white is a big help, and I ride all year round, from hottest days to anything above 30. Airflow feels fine.
For sport riding the length is perfect, long enough to cover top of pants and provide tailbone protection.
Do keep in mind sizing, I am small, bought a small, and it fits great, so maybe they run small in general since most things are more roomy on my frame. Personally I'm so glad to finally have something that fits like it was tailored.

I am 5'9 185 pounds, average body size (not supper muscley but not out of shape#
I went ahead and purchased this jacket #revzillas service was excellent# but unforunately i was not impressed with the jacket. I have been looking for a nice quality white leather jacket #for the New England weather#. unforunately i was most dissapointed with this Jacket.
When the jacket arrived from Scorpion it was nicely packaged #even came with a coat hanger#. Once i tried it on is where i was disappointed. I had ordered a large and to be honest it fit like a Small would. far too tight all over #as stated above average size, not a huge gut by any means# i could barely zipper the jacket i had to stretch it a ton. Once i had it zippered it was really tight all over. when i tested sitting on the bike #hoping it would fit better when leaned over# the jacket road up to my head #no matter what i tried doing it wouldnt sit flat on my shoulders#. The protection in the elbows and shoulders did not sit properly were it should at all #all around far too smal#
The inner linner was nice material but FAR too warm for even 75 degree weather #i cant imagine putting it on when the weather goes up to 85 with humidity#. I also tried the jacket on without the linner #still very warm, little airflow to be honest...
Maybe i had expected too much from the Jacket (white, protection and nice fitting#. Unfortunately to be honest i wouldnt recommend this jacket to anyone with an average size build...
Atleast revzilla is excellent with the purchase and return process #my brother and I have had great luck in the past with various items... i would still recommend revzilla to anyone (just need to find more reviews from various sources before purchasing an expencive item)

Surprised at the Quality
I borrowed this jacket from a buddy and was blown away by not only the comfort of the jacket but also how it fits perfect in all the right areas.
I've been riding in 55-65 deg. weather and the removable inner liner blocks all of the perforations and keeps you warm. The thought of being cold doesn't even cross your mind. I did get to ride in a 80 deg. day and took out the liner and the air flow is spot on.
This jacket is worth it because you do not have to spend $200 more dollars to get a top ranked brand name jacket. The styling is awesome, looks killer, and is all around perfect!

Awesome jacket with great features for the price
As usual, Revzilla delivered this item very quickly and in perfect condition. The jacket fits a slight bagger on me than my dianese jackets (5'8,150lb,32"w) The sleeves are a tad long but with my forcefield armor shirt on, it fits perfectly. The jacket allows a lot of airflow when all zippers are open and looks just great. Zippers all very easy to grip with gloves on and stuff stays in the pocket even when the zippers are open to allow air in while riding. I just can't recommend this jacket enough. It's great for the price.

I've had this jacket for a little while now, and it's been great. Good airflow, comfortable, and definitely stylish.
I went down at about 30-40 MPH in it a few months ago, and the stock armor and leather did their job nicely, and now you can hardly tell it's been down. However, even though all of the zippers are YYK, the left wrist zipper broke open and the sleeve rode up on my forearm. Hopefully it was just a manufacturing defect, as I still ride with it after getting a new zipper.

Great Jacket with one complaint
This jacket is awesome, I highly recommend it. The zip in liner is great for cold days. I wore it on a ride from Cleveland to Columbus in January (~35ºF) with a some under armour underneath and it was quite warm. And, it looks sick! I have gotten many compliments on it. The one complaint i have is the velcro fastener at the top of the zipper is very sharp!! I have cut my face a few times with it. Overal, I highly recommend this Scorpion jacket.
