Scorpion Women's Verano Jacket
Great Summer Riding Jacket
I purchased this jacket after watching/reading multiple reviews and im happy that I did. I wanted something that would offer protection but also feel comfortable wearing in the summer. The only problem iv had with it is that on me the arms are a little long. The air flow tat this jacket offers is perfect for sunny days only time iv been hot wearing the it is when iv stopped but as soon as you get going you cool right off I purchased the all black version and have gotten multiple compliments on it. I would recommend this jacket to someone who wants to looks stylish in the summer and not be too hot.

happy wife, happy life!
This coat looks ten times better in person than in the add. It is a classy, bright, vibrant purple and white, which makes it almost impossible for other traffic to miss. Well built, good protection in shoulders, elbows, and well placed back protection. Excellent zipper and closures with adjustment velcro tabs at the hip. I would have given this coat an excellent rating on features, but the cool weather liner is very minimal. I purchased this coat for hot weather and my wife will probably never use the liner anyway. Overall awesome coat. If she loves purple; she will love this coat.

Great riding jacket
I bought this jacket for my daughter to replace an outgrown jacket. She wanted certain colors so the purple and white were the ticket for her. We bought the XS size which is still a little big on Samantha but that's due to her age. She loved it from the beginning and is wearing it proudly.

It didn't take long for this jacket to disappoint me...
I'm honestly surprised there are so many positive reviews on this jacket. I would not recommend this jacket, and I use to love Scorpion products.
Quality... I hardly had the jacket for 30 days before the zipper tag broke off. The next thing that went were the snaps that hold the liner in place. Two of those ripped within 6 months. I do love that the entire liner zips in rather that just the sides.
Fit... the fit is not good. Everything about the fit is wrong. I have issues with the pads not sitting in the right spot even in the riding position. The pads also move when you try to put the jacket on. I've had to take the dang thing off so many times to adjust the pad placement and try again. Also, the shoulders are too wide and I have to wear the waist higher than I like. It likes to sit on top of your hips, which is not ideal unless you like to wear mom jeans/cycle pants.
Ventilation... this jacket has great ventilation. I can wear it on 90 degree days no problem as long as I'm moving. Once temps get over that it's tough to want to keep it on even when moving. It's not warm at all, but if you don't have to ride far you can tough it out with the liner and a sweatshirt.
Color... LOVE the color. It's a VERY bright hot pink. I love it love it love it. If I didn't love the color so much I would have dumped this jacket long ago.
Overall... if you can get it for a big discount and you're handy with a needle and thread, go for it. Otherwise, I've been way happier with Joe Rocket and Cortex products in the same price range. This jacket absolutely turned me off Scorpion products.

Good Product for the Price
I've had this jacket for about a month. I chose it in the white and purple. I haven't wrecked with it, thank god, but it seems very durable. It's not a heavy jacket but it keeps me very warm in cold weather. i had the bike out in 35 degrees the other day and the only thing that got cold was my hands. I like the style, the fit, and especially that it has the removable liner and most of all, the loop to attach to your pants. i hate my jackets riding up when I'm riding. The only things I don't like about this jacket are the buttons on the cuffs, I would rather there be zippers but for this price point, it doesn't much matter. Also, the neck where the zipper is digs into my neck some. It's bothersome when I notice it but I try to block it out because I can't afford to buy a new jacket anytime soon. Overall, this jacket is awesome. it has great airflow with the lining out, I love the armor in it, the fit is great, it can be warm if you need it to and cool when you need it to. It has some good features to it. I would recommend this product to others and I am considering buying another in the pink and black since I have a new helmet and gloves that would match. Great product.

Protected me well in an accident
I was wearing this jacket when I was in a nasty collision on my Ninja. I swerved to miss a bicyclist that veered into my lane and hit an oncoming car. I flew over the bike, body slammed the side of the car, then bounced off and landed on my face. My only injuries were a shattered wrist and blown out knee. This jacket protected my shoulders, back, and elbows perfectly. (Not much you can do about a wrist). It helps that is is super cute and flattering. I would highly recommend this jacket as I believe that it saved me from much worse injuries. I will be purchasing another since the medics had to cut mine off :(

LOVE this product!
I got the pink version and love the color, it's a very bright and pretty pink. I usually wear size small but the x small in this fit perfect and has a really cute shape to it. It's mostly comfortable but the elbow pads can start to rub on your elbows if you've been riding all day. Protection in the arms and shoulders is great but there aren't any pads in the chest or back. The material is perfect and breathable and i love the removable liner on hot days. It's very functional for both warm and cold weather.

Love this Jacket
So far, I love this jacket. I will test the cooling airflow a little later when the weather gets hot. The wind resistant liner works great. The fit size guide was right on. The only thing I can think of that I would change right now is to have a soft flap on the inside at the top of the zipper to keep the corners from rubbing on my chest.
