Speed and Strength Stars and Stripes Jacket
Great value so far. A little short and not totally waterproof.
I bought this jacket because I wanted one with built in pads that I could wear throughout most of the year. I picked it because it has vents for the warm weather and a vest liner and hood foot the cold. Both work very well for what they are supposed to do. The pads feel sturdy enough to protect against an impact but soft and flexible enough that they aren't a hindrance. I only have 2 major complaints. 1: The jacket fits a bit small and short. The neck isn't quite tight enough to keep all the cold wind out at highway speeds and it doesn't quite go down the waist as far as I'd like. 2: The main reason I bought this jacket for multiple seasons is that it is supposed to be waterproof. That's a big help in North East Texas where it rains a lot more than you would think. However, this is only partially true. So far it has stood up well to a medium/light rain. But during a recent heavy rain it soaked through the arms, upper chest, and lower stomach on both sides. Granted, the rain was pretty large and heavy but it didn't soak through at the zippers like I would have thought. It just plain soaked right through the jacket material itself. Still think it's a great buy for a multi season jacket with built in back protection that isn't going to break the bank.

Arm and back pads need to fit tighter and better. Air flow works very well with zippers open and stops cold air from coming in if you zip up tight.
Overall it's a nice product

This jacket is surprisingly effective in the cold. Havent tried it in hot weather but it breathes good enough for me to assume it will be ok. It is very comfortable and looks really nice. Exceeded my expectations. The fit was slightly larger but not enough to negatively affect it looks and performance.

Good Jacket for the price
So far I've only ridden with this jacket down to about 50 degrees, but it has been great. The 4 small air vents (2 front, 2 back) provide a surprising amount of airflow while you're riding. I haven't been caught in rain with this jacket, but it doesn't feel like it would be overly water resistant. Overall this is a really good looking jacket that I've really enjoyed wearing so far.

Bought this jacket to replace my leather jacket. I live in Canada and had some major issues with pricing when it came to shipping costs, duty and taxes. It took away from the great price that the jacket is.
In saying that the jacket is pretty great. I find the fit to be kind of short, especially in the front. Front needs an extra couple of inches in length. Light weight, stylish, comfortable. Loving it so far.

What a great jacket!
I am loving this jacket. It was the best buy that I have ever made. It is great in the cold and in the heat. Fits great and has plenty of protection.

An affordable all-around good jacket
This jacket was purchased as a backup jacket and quickly became my go-to commuting jacket. It's styling makes it fine for riding sport bikes and cruisers alike. Its comfort is decent, and the removable vest liner makes it multi season for me in upstate NY. Vents a great amount of air in summer, and adding a thin hoodie underneath can extend its usefulness deep into fall. The padding is sufficiently solid, although I haven't really tested its protection. Pretty solid jacket for a decent price.
