Scorpion Hat Trick II Jacket
I shopped long and hard looking for a jacket that I could use in summer weather but also stretch it into colder times of the year. This jacket was what I decided on. Ive ridden in 98 degree days and as long as I'm moving I'm ok. Its got great ventilation when the liners are out. I tested the waterproof liner on a hour and a half trip that poured the whole time and underneath I was completely dry! I have so far ridden in temperatures as low as 40 with just the windproof liner in and a t-shirt and was ok, I have a pretty good tolerance tho. I'm sure you could throw both liners in and wear some other thin layers and be fine under 30 degrees if you are pretty tolerant. I say the fit is a little small because when I have both liners in, its a little tight on me, which is incentive to loose more weight, but its still comfortable and I wouldn't have been happy if I got a size larger. When its just the jacket shell, it fits me loosely, but still fitted. I have not tested out how it holds up in a crash, and I hope to stay that way for a while. My only gripe about this jacket is that the velcro on the windproof liner catches bad in the jacket shell liner and kinda tears on the fabric, which is ascetically unpleasing. And I wish there was another interior pocket. Nothing is perfect, there are a few other tiny things I would change but for the price point, I think you get a lot. The zippers seem of very good quality, they are YKK. The liners are pretty easy to take in and out as well. The little belt loop snap on the back is an awesome feature as well. I am really happy with this jacket and I would definitely buy more products from Scorpion.

Near Perfect For My Wants/Needs
This is my first moto jacket so I have nothing to compare this to. I chose this jacket because of all the features that it has. I love the fact that it is a three-season jacket with removable thermal liner and waterproof liner. Removed both for summer riding and it is great! Excellent air flow, very comfortable, and it just feels like a durable jacket. Sometimes you just know when you have quality product in your hands and that is the case here.
The fit is near perfect. My sleeve measurement is 33 in. and my chest measurement is 37 in. I went with a M and and I am very happy with that decision. It is a bit loose in my shoulders but that just means I need to lift more.
The complaints I have are (1) a lack of color options (I would have LOVED a red and white one); (2) I wish there was more NightViz reflective trim throughout the jacket; and (3) for the price, while still a very good deal for what you get, I wish it had at least two internal pockets rather than just one.

Super versatile and very comfortable.
I've put on 3000 miles with this jacket so far in as cold as 44*, on a naked bike with no windscreen, and with the thermal I've never been cold. With the rain and thermal liners both removed I've ridden in as high as 94* in stop and go traffic and didn't feel like I needed to take the jacket off. For one jacket to have that much temperature coverage is awesome!!
The fit is great, I've got larger than average shoulders, 5A High School Lineman, and they fit in the jacket without issue. I've not had any issues with wear, it seems to be holding up to everything I throw at it.
There is one annoyance - the Velcro from the rain liner sticks to the inside liner of the outer jacket and it appears to be causing some pulling on the fabric.
I'd recommend this coat to anyone. My roommate purchased one 2 months after he'd seen me enjoy mine so much and he's loving his now as well.

for an under $300 jacket, this thing is amazing. on chilly mornings it's very warm with the windproof liner only. haven't had a chance to try the insulated liner. waterproof in light rain so far. great airflow. feels solid, good construction. great styling. very happy with this purchase.

500 miles as soon as it arrived.
Temp varied from 45-80s. It kept me cool and warm the entire time. It kept me warmer than my leather.
Plus, it looks awesome.

I wanted a jacket that would go multiple seasons and be good a protection, air flow, style and comfort. The Hat trick 2 fit the bill.
I've tested it in early spring with all three layers and only a t-shirt in 40 degree weather and was warm. I have yet to test in wet or warm conditions.
Protection seems good although I haven't tested them yet and don't plan on it! Might upgrade the back protection at some point.
Fit was pretty accurate to the description. I fell in between sizes so I went up to a large for a little extra room. I measured 33-34in sleeve and 41in chest. Fit in chest is great and sleeves are about .5in too long. Otherwise great fit!
Style is nice. Sport styled but not aggressive. I got the blue hoping it would go well with my bike and it was pretty close. The jacket does compliment my Shoei Qwest Diverge blue scheme very nicely!
I haven't had the ability to test this jacket in all climates and situations but it continues to impress me and I highly recommend this jacket!

There is too much good to list, so my only flaws noticed........A lot of air flow thru the belly area, so not a great COLD, and I mean 45 degree, cold, jacket. The only design flaw, the inner liner, has an opening in it, to reach the internal pocket on the second liner, I think for 270.00 they could have put two internal pockets. OTher than that, This jacket is amazing. Great protection, comfortable as can be, and very flexible to different riding circumstances.

Would definitely recommend this jacket.
Received this jacket a few days ago and it's great! It is a little heavy with both liners in but that's not a problem.I wasn't sure what size to get but the video was helpful in my decision.I'm 6' 227lbs and the large seems to be just about perfect,although I thought about sending it back for an XL for a little more room but I didn't want to chance the padding not being in the right places.It is a little snug but I'm wearing a long john shirt under it #weather around 45-60F# and cold/wind is no problem and probably wouldn't be if the temp were colder.I've had several comments on how nice this jacket looks and I'm very happy with it.I first thought the back was riding up above my belt line but it's not and the arm length is perfect #someone said it was a little too long# but it is just right on me.I'll know more when weather warms up but right now I give it 5 stars.Great jacket and great price.
