Speed and Strength Little Miss Dangerous Jacket
Stylish and good value
I bought this jacket on sale and even if I would have paid full price I would have been pleased. This jacket is very stylish and I love that it has zippers on the sides to allow for better fit when sitting if need be. Size chart and actual product was spot on.The arm length is fantastic as they come down slightly past my wrist yet do not obstruct movement. The only negative is the gaudy leopard print liner - yikes!

Great all around jacket.
Bought this for my girlfriend. Only been on one ride so far but she loves it. It's got a feminine look to it but feels very sturdy. She likes the zippered vent options and all the pockets. For the price, this feels like a great quality purchase.

Awesome jacket - would wear everyday!
This jacket does fit a bit large. (i'm a 38DDD and ordered an XL and it was too large.) Beautiful jacket, perfect for cooler days.

Really great jacket!
Bought this jacket because, frankly, the price was right and the features were awesome. I rode with it on a 65 degree day and it was perfect with the vents closed. It's comfortable and I think it looks really hot. Some of the girls didn't like the leopard print liner but you can zip that out easily enough. The size fit was pretty close to true except the arms are a little long. That's my only complaint with all jackets I've tried. Just because someone gets bigger in size, doesn't mean their arms get longer. We aren't monkies lol! All in all a great looking, well fitting jacket. Get it!

Great riding jacket
I'm a skinny 5'9 and have super long arms. I read in other reviews that the sleeves ran a bit long so I ordered the small. This jacket fit me perfect. It's great on cool days with or with out the liner. And on the hot days it has enough zip-able vents to keep you cool.

Great style and protection!
I bought this jacket for my girlfriend. She continually refused to wear an actual motorcycle jacket because she thought girls looked too "manly" in them. That is until she found Speed and Strength. The style of this jacket really captures the "girl power" look. The detailed stitching on the arms, the leopard print lining, and the crystal accent on the zipper pull are just a few style points that really make this jacket stand out in a modern, sexy way.
Removable hard armor in the elbows and shoulders are sturdy and, better yet, much easier to remove than other jackets I've worked with. Elbows, for instance, can be slipped out from a velcro opening inside the cuff, instead of reaching up from inside the lining in the back of the jacket. I would have liked to see back armor as well, but that's just me being over protective.
This jacket also has a surprising number of pockets, so there's more than enough storage for your essentials without carrying a purse or using your pants pockets.
All in all I'm excited that my girlfriend is better protected, and couldn't be happier with how sexy she looks in it. Oh, and for the current going price, it's a steal!

Glad I bought it!
This is the first bike jacket I've bought and I didn't know what to expect. I tried a few on at a local Honda Kawasaki store and noticed the difference in jackets immediately. I was a little nervous I'd get this jacket and it would be too big, small, or uncomfortable. I hate purchasing clothing online without the opportunity to try it on, but I am SO GLAD I bought it! It fits perfect! The sleeves are a tad long but I'm glad there is a little extra room and it isn't super tight. It is comfortable and cute! I LOVE the leopard print on the inside of the jacket. It feels like it would protect me if I ever hit the pavement. Looking forward to wearing it! Also, the shipping was FAST! I ordered this on Monday and had it on my doorstep Wednesday morning. You also can't beat the price! I've seen this jacket selling on other websites from $130 to $200. Thanks Revzilla!!

Nice Jacket - Fit my needs
First I want to say my bang for the buck rating is based on the fact that I got this on sale. If it was not on sale, I probably would not have bought it. I also bought this jacket as a passenger jacket for those people who simply want at ride with me on occasion.
Protection - It does not have any back protection or a pocket for adding back protection. The shoulder and elbow/forearm protection is good though.
Style - This jacket's overall lines are great - looks great on (even with the leopard print lining). One thing I'm not fond of is if you want to ride with the jacket neck open to flow more air, the snaps (that secure the neck when buttoned up) have no way to keep them from flapping in the wind (beating against you). As other reviewers have said, leopard print lining - REALLY?! Yuck. But okay - at least it's not pink. I swear why do jacket manufacturers think all women want to sacrifice protection to show their curves and we all love pink and animal prints? But I digress.
Also as others have said - the sleeves are a little long for the sizing but the sleeve snaps have two adjustments so that helps with that issue.
All in all this is a really good looking jacket and for the full price not too bad but I would think you could find a jacket that provides back protection (at least the option) for the same price range.
