Speed and Strength Seven Sins Hi-Viz Textile Jacket
First let me say that from the time of ordering to the time of receiving my order, especially since I ordered this jacket 3 days before Christmas, was the fastest I have ever received an item by mail EVER!! :)
Un-boxed it from the shipping package, tried it on, PERFECT fit. Used sizing chart when ordering, and ordered the large. As far as my body style, I have a bit of a gut, so this was a little concern, but once I tried it on, that concern disappeared.
My other jacket is the Scorpion Hat Trick 2 (also in Large) and the difference between the two is the weight and thickness of the material. The Speed and Strength Seven Sins feels about half the weight of the Scorpion, but BOTH feel very comfortable and secure protection wise. I am a brand new rider so I have not taken this jacket (or the Hat Trick 2) out for a full review (waiting until I take the MSF class in two weeks) but after just a short ride I feel both jackets were an excellent choice.
I chose the HiViz version so I have a night time jacket, but would not hesitate wearing this for day time riding as well.
The price, as a closeout, is unbeatable. So if you are on the fence regarding this jacket, I would recommend picking this up while you can.
Also as far as my rating of 0 out of 5 on the "Protection & Durability" and "Air Flow" categories above, I left those without answering due to the fact that due to my limited riding at this point I could not, in clear conscious give an honest review.
Hope this helps :)

Great Jacket, especially for the price!
The only complaint I have with this jacket is I wish there was more reflective elements build in. Its very High Viz during the day, but could do a better job at night. Overall great jacket tho. And shipping was unbelieveably fast! Yet another great purchase from revzilla.

Great fit. Great Value
While I have yet to test this jacket while riding, the overall fit of the jacket is great. I'm 5'8, 165 lb, slight muscular build and find the large to fit quite comfortably. I tried on a medium, but it felt too tight and I felt it wouldn't be comfortable with a fleece or sweatshirt underneath. Overall, very satisfied and hope it performs as well as it looks.

This product has many great features for protection.
The jacket is warm when it is chilly outside. No wind penetrates it. The safety padding in the jacket is comfortable and not cumbersome. The jacket fit a little snug but that is so as not to flop in the wind. This is a very good product. The high visibility yellow is what I purchased and my riding friends say I am very visible from a long distance. Precisely the point.

Great jacket for the money
I'm 6'0" 160 and the medium fit really well. The only complaint is that the elbow pads tend to slide down to my forearms. I originally thought I got the wrong size, but the sleeves are the right length in riding position. the elbow pads just tend to float more than i expected.

Speed and Strength giving you bang for the buck.
If you are looking for a multi-liner, fashionable, hi-viz jacket sub $150, Speed and Strength will wow you with the Seven Sins textile jacket. Unlike most hi-viz jackets, the black shoulder and arm panels allow for a stylish look while still providing above adequate safety of a hi-viz jacket. The armour in the elbows and back gives one peace of mind in a sliding situation. For cool weather riding, Speed an Strength has lined the inside with a cool weather vest. This makes riding around the 50 degree mark comfortable only with a fleece underneath. Overall, this jacket provides everything the sport, sport touring, or adventure rider is looking for a price that is hard pass up.

I like the fit of this jacket. I wore it in 90 + deg weather for about 250 miles. It has good airflow, but for temperatures this hot you will want something with a little better airflow. I think it will be great in the fall and winter in northern TX.
It is very comfortable otherwise and I love the high vis yellow.
