Speed and Strength Off The Chain 2.0 Textile Jacket
Just what I was looking for!
I like riding with a hoodie under my jacket so this jacket was perfect from the get go. I like the style a lot. The jacket fits well. though I do find that the sleeves will flap a bit at speeds over ~50 MPH. It's annoying but not a deal breaker. I like all of the pockets and the vents are easy to reach and open/close even at highway speeds. The padding and the cut of the jacket work well together. You are well protected without looking like a kid in football pads (the GF says I look "tough as h***" inn the jacket...) The hoodie zips in well... though I wish there was a way to secure the sleeves of the hoodie to the sleeves of the jacket. Also, a bit more reflective treatment would have been nice.
All and all, a great jacket that I feel is worth every penny.

Road up to bear mountain with this jacket kept me warm in the morning when it was cold. By mid day it was in the high 70s was able to take out the inside hoodie and open the vents and stay cool.

Just my style!
I am a big hoodie guy, so when I saw this jacket I knew I wanted one. My ratings speak for themselves. All the features are as described and the holster is made for a smaller barrel, like a .357 Concealed Carry Pistol, but works fine for your phone, too. I ordered the Vintage Black and don't think the online picture do it justice. I was excited to order and more than pleased upon arrival. Overall, if you like the cut you'll be happy with the purchase.

falling apart- do not recommend
I recognize that this is a very inexpensive jacket but, my goodness, Speed and Strength should be embarrassed having their name attached to this garbage.
This jacket has single stitch seams with low quality thread which were coming undone after the first ride. The material is flimsy and certainly wont save your hide if you go down. As if to add insult to my wallet's injury, the zipper broke at the 3 month mark.
The lesson I learned is that its worth saving my money for a product of real quality rather than hoping for the best and ending up with a China made, short term, limited use jacket like this.
It may look cool, it may feel good, but learn from my mistake and walk quickly away. There are far better options than Speed and Strength.

Awesome offering from Speed & Strength
First off, I'm a big guy. I have quite the belly and also ride a sports bike. I was concerned about the fitment of this jacket and after watching Anthony's videos, went with the 3xl. I'm 6'1 and 290lbs. This jacket fits like a glove with the liner in and is a bit loose even with the liner out. If I had to nitpick, the only things I see that could be improved are the velcro around the wrists (be nice if they were zippers) and the main zipper in front flows a bit of air, but what do you expect from a textile jacket made for 3 season riding. Thanks Revzilla for giving me the tools and options to find what I needed!

Fit is great and it looks good on and off the bike. The included hoodie is very nice. It can get get pretty hot if you are just sitting around but once moving the airflow is just right.
