Scorpion Women's Fury Jacket
Excellent Touring Jacket
I was looking to upgrade my touring jacket to be more all season. I previously had the Alpinestars Stella, which has proven to be an excellent good weather jacket, but when the weather turns a bit ugly, it does nothing.
Looking into the Scorpion Jacket, at first I was a little turned away - to me it looked mannish and not very girly - which is important to me. I don't want to look butch - so this jacket almost turned me off. I went ahead and ordered it, with full intention on being disgusted at how I looked in it.
Boy was I wrong. The cinches on the waist actually made me look THIN! Can you believe that, THIN in a fully protected motorcycle jacket. Not only that, it was cut perfect for my body shape. I was very pleased with the overall looks.
As far as the rest of the story - it hasn't let me down yet. I'm planning on wearing it for an entire week long motorcycle trip through the Alps in late October - that should be the true test of the "goodness" of the jacket.
Thank you, Revzilla, you've pleased me again with supplying me with an excellent selection to choose from!

My wife loves this coat. She was a little hesitant at first and did not want a multiple season jacket. She agreed to ***try*** it and has not looked back - she loves this jacket. She really likes the versatility and the optional neck piece. The only drawback is that her arms are a little short which makes the sleeves a little long - except when you are driving the bike in a standard riding posture. Overall - a great purchase. Now she wants riding pants...

Great features for a great price
This jacket has everything I wanted.. I can use it all year round and it has great protection. I still haven't been able to ride that much in it (snow and ice on roads still), but so far am liking it a lot. A little bigger than I hoped, but the smaller size was too small when I tried it on in a store. The good thing about the size is that it allows me to wear my heated gear comfortably underneath.
The only problem I have with it is more a scorpion issue. I specifically bought a scorpion jacket since I had scorpion pants. I should have investigated more, but didn't, and now it's too late... this model has a zipper to hook up with scorpion pants..but my pants have a belt loop to hook up with a jacket. I was pretty upset at first, just assumed that any scorpion pants go with any scorpion jacket. Make sure you double check before buying a jacket or pants from scorpion! I found an easy solution though. I took the bottom part of the zipper that is on the jacket and had it sown to the pants..works perfectly now!
One more point: the yellow one is actually the same yellow seen on pictures.. looks a little washed out... but still bright enough. I was told by someone at revzilla that it was just an issue with the lighting on the picture and it would be the same yellow as my schuberth hi-viz yellow. It is not though. Not a problem, but it is not the same kind of hi-viz yellow you see most other jackets having. After being a little disappointed about that at first, I got over it and am actually liking the lighter yellow color on it. As long as I look like a big yellow lemon on the street I am happy.. it's all about being seen!

Great look and it covers the backside more than other products I have researched!
This coat has a great look and can be adjusted to give the perfect fit especially in the waist area. I am 5'9" and 127lbs and ordered a large to ensure I could wear layers if necessary. I would recommend this jacket to any motorcycle enthusiast!

The Fury is a Fantastic Jacket
I searched far and wide for a jacket that fit. I am tall, I am busty and not of European stature. I found this jacket...it might take 5 min to suit up with the layers of zippers and snaps, but I appreciated it since it was my protection from the elements for two months on a ride to Alaska and back. Love the tall collar, which helped protect against the wind on cold days and was removable for warm ones. Definitely a jacket for colder weather...over 80 degree riding, even with vents open, it got a little toasty. I encountered quite a few days of rain, and the jacket and pants kept me pleasantly dry. Lots of pockets for all I could use and more. After 2 months, the suit held up great and looking forward to much more use.
