Speed and Strength Run With The Bulls Mesh Jacket
I got this to use in the late spring, summer, and early fall. It works great in the cooler weather, but it is still a bit too hot for the summer months. However the only way to get more airflow is to wear a vest, and that will leave you with less protection.
The only other complaint I have is the Massive emblem that is plastered across the Jacket, but it isn't too much of a style killer.
All in all it is great bang for the buck, and an awesome jacket.

Luv Speed and Strength
This jacket is far more comfortable to wear than my Bilt perforated leather jacket in the hot Florida sun. The only problem that annoys me is that when you put your arms in the liner comes out with your hands and I pull it back up.

Yes, I was about to purchase this and I waited. Good thing I waited also because when I was ready to purchase, it was on sale $40.00 off. I was so very happy then like always I was worried if I had ordered the wrong size or if it was the right jacket for me and this and that. Nope it fit perfect and looks great. I am very pleased I rode about 3 hours east yesterday and the temperature was 97°f here in good old Missouri and It felt great lots of airflow and really pretty good protection. I got a bit warm once we got into town and stopped at the lights, but that's to be expected. Overall Very pleased!

Good quality, features
This is a well made jacket. It is cool, has great padding, and looks fantastic. Compared to the discount no-name I bought a year or so ago, it's night and day--maybe 20% more money for a jacket that is probably 100% better.

I bought this after reading some of the reviews. I was looking for a summer time jacket that would have plenty of air flow, and it does. This jacket also comes with elbow,shoulder, and back protection which is removable. I'm 5'7" 180 lbs. 42" chest and I bought the large which i have some extra room. The elbow pads sit a little low but I think if I bought a medium it would be to small. I really like this product, I do recommend it for summertime.

worth every penny
I bought this jacket a couple months ago and I love it. It's perfect for Florida! I'd say its more of a late spring and summer jacket. Moves tons of air but I still feel some protection thanks to the back, shoulder, and elbow pads. I don't think they'd hold up well in a high speed crash. But it's great for around town. as far at fitting goes, it's weird for me but that's because I'm 6'3" and 140 Lbs. I bought the small because I'm really skinny And wanted it to look proportional, in which it did! It fits perfectly. It's not too tight and it's not too loose or short. I love the belt loops on the inside of the jacket, that helped keep it down while tuckin.. Conclusion: fit is true to the chart, it feels very comfortable and looks great All for a good price. I'd definitely buy again.

Nice basic mesh jacket
I've been looking for a jacket to ride in the warm to hot months and this should fit the bill nicely. It fits very nicely and has the ability to adjust the fit at the waist, which a lot of the mesh/textile jackets in this price range don't seem to have. I had tried several Joe Rocket and Icon jackets and the S&S jackets just seemed to fit me better.
I'm 6', 185 with a 42 inch chest and the large fits me nicely without being too bulky. I like the basic elbow, shoulder and back armor, which is one of the features that drew me towards this jacket over some of the more basic leathers. Because it doesn't have a removable liner and just has the mesh inner this jacket breathes very well, so don't expect to be riding it in cool weather unless you wear something underneath.
I ended up buying the black jacket, and unlike the video #which seems to show red sublimated graphics# it is true to the promo pictures and is black and dark grey. The only feature I wish it had would be a snap collar, but considering what you do get for less than $150, I'm willing to overlook that.
