Scorpion Eddy Jacket - Closeout
Great In The Heat
This jacket flows more air than any of the other lightweight mesh summer jackets I own. It also does so without throwing safety to the wind.
I am 6'1" and 230lbs with broad shoulders. The 2XL fits me very well. The shoulder and elbow pads stay where they are needed. The place holder foam back pad is easy to replace. I got the orange and white version. It acts as hi-viz quite nicely.
On a humid, 95 degree summer day this jacket moved air through it in bunches. The tee shirt I had on under it was dry when I got off the bike after 75 miles in the sun.
I recommend this light but safe and functional summer weight jacket completely.

Great summer jacket
I chose this jacket because it had all of the the features I was looking for around this price point. I'm 6'2" 210lbs, muscular build (broad shoulders, 32" waist, single digit body fat), and a large fits near perfect all around.
Sas-Tec armor (upgraded to Sas-Tec back protector).
Flows a lot of air for great cooling when moving, especially with sweat-wicking shirt underneath.
Arm length and waist length good for someone 6'2".
When the weather get a bit cooler, the liner works very well, and I could always put on a thicker base layer for more warmth.
High vis is great without being over the top. I've seen many drivers that were about to pull out in front of me do a double-take, and hold their position, which I attribute a lot of to the high-vis on this jacket.
Waist too large for very athletic builds; even on the smallest setting, it's about 2" too wide. Causes minor flapping at high speeds, but not that big of a deal.
Logos are a bit much. This really comes down to personal preference, but I prefer minimal logos, or at least the logos without the brand name across the chest/drop. Again, a minor gripe.

Keeps you dry and warm in the winter.
Finally got a chance to thoroughly test this product out on Christmas Eve (raining). The video and other reviews were on target. The areas that the jacket covered were definitely dry and wind resistance. Although, as noted in the description, the outer pockets are definitely not water-proof.

Rider from India
I reside in Hyderabad, India and there are many online/retail stores that sell biking gear but still i opted for this jacket as I trust Anthony's review on this. Even though i stay thoughts of miles away and I very well know that these products cannot be shipped to India, i still follow the reviews so that i can choose the product i want and get them through my folks.
Now, being a summer ride jacket, I've used this jacket for quiet sometime now. I've done rides mostly during winters and this jacket is good. The protection is spot on, however I would like to try this during summer time to know how the full potential of this jacket. Fitment wise, I'm a medium but I'm kinda skinny for my age (25), not a beefed up personality. But still this jacket sticks to my skin while riding but on stand still the front portion just taking a shape like a ponge. Protection I'm guessing it would be great since it isnt so tight or it isnt too lose. I would tell this once i take a fall.
Overall i recommend this jacket! Its definitely a bang for the buck product!
And Revzilla, please please ship the products to India as well with of course, less shipping charges. We, Indians would be very grateful to you guys if you could make this happen!

A very nice and flashy jacket
Went with the orange and black version of this jacket and overall I am very satisfied.
Jacket offers moderate protection and is very breathable. Even in the 80 degree temp, with the liner out i didn't get hot at all. With the liner in and a little bit of extra insulation i can easily drive 40 miles to work in low 50 degree temps with out a problem.
Going along with every one else, the jacket fits kinda large around the belly.
The overall look of the jacket. Bright colors really pop, and i like how they incorporated all the reflective material since i spend almost half my riding time in the early hours before the sun comes up.

Great summer jacket!
I bought this jacket and rode in it for the first time on a 97 degree bright sunny day. I took out the liner and it flows air well. Stayed cool riding and even felt ok stopped in traffic and I got black. Wish they made an ALL black murdered version. I have a 43 inch chest and 33 inch waist and got a large. I wish it was more tapered at the waist or had the ability to adjust it smaller. I had to get the large for the chest and arms. I know what a gym looks like inside. Sleeves zip closed and worked well with my gauntlet style gloves. Overall it's a good looking and comfortable jacket minus my few gripes.
