Great jacket overall for a great price!
Great jacket! I don't really have any complaints about this jacket. I wear it year round as it flows significant amounts of air to keep me cool in the hot/dry summers here in West Texas, and am able to wear it in the Fall/Winter seasons with a layer or two underneath as well. Layering is easy to do as I typically wear an under shirt, long sleeve, and a wind/water proof non-heated thermal liner underneath in the cold and it has kept me comfortable on 35' mornings. It fits true to size and is quite comfortable on and off my Kawi ZX10R, even in full tuck. The green matches my bike as well, which is always nice. The armor is good, but I always upgrade, and the low price of this jacket makes it easier on the wallet to purchase upgraded armor. The features are pretty basic, but that's to be expected for a $160 jacket in comparison to a $400 one. I am extremely happy with this jacket and have since been an avid Speed and Strength supporter. By the way, Speed and Strength also offers matching gloves and helmet with this jacket that look great together as well.
On a final note: Revzilla, wow, exceptional company with great customer service. Very happy I chose to buy from this site and will continue to do so. I received prompt responses to multiple emails I sent and there was always a friendly voice on the phone with a knowledgable rep. Fast shipping as well!

Exactly What I Wanted!!
This is my first motorcycle jacket and my first purchase from Revzilla. I'm happy to say the experience was definitely an enjoyable one that I'm sure to be repeating soon!! Also bought the Top Dead Center Gloves and they look awesome when worn together.
Now to the Jacket
Build: For me I had no surprises and no problems. The jacket is pretty good quality, a concern of mine since I felt I was getting it so cheap. Seams throughout the jacket are stitched tight, and overall it feels well assembled.
Fit: I'm about 5'8'' 180 with an athletic build. I opted for a LARGE and wasn't disappointed. The jacket is comfortable, with room to spare if I'm just wearing a T-shirt, and allows me to fit a hoodie underneath on those cold days. It actually fits me so well I have to fight the urge to wear it even when I'm not riding.
Overall: Very happy with this jacket. I wanted something to provide me with a good launch point into motorcycle apparel, and I feel this jacket did just that.

Its hard for me to find a Jacket that fits me well for my build. I have a wide chest and shoulders and I taper down to the waist. I wear an XL Shirt American Cut fine, but always had room to spare around the waist. This Jacket on an XL fit my upper body perfect on the XL size, my biceps are tight but when I open the vents I've got plenty of room to flex. Like I said I've got a bigger weight lifters build and this conformed to me well.
XL Size fit securely on me and I feel safe wearing it.
Waist 36" (Straps tightened to max, looks to fit up to maybe 44" waist)
like I said, its got a V taper to the cut so keep that in mind.
Side Note: I ride a 2013 Yamaha R1 and the blue on this jacket matchs pretty darn well

This is a solid jack for riding on nice days. It is not great on super hot summer days or cold fall days but is good for the days in between. Has a really comfartable fit which is what I like most about it. The style is very cool and the jacket is light weight. It has armour protection but the armour is very thin and not very protective from an impact in my opinion. I like this jacket and would recommend it as a secondary jacket for riding around town. If you are going to be doing any rad carving then I would suggest something a little more protective. Overall I am happy with it.

Absolutely LOVE this product. Highly recommend
This jacket is a super great buy and really highly recommend to anyone who is skeptical on purchasing anything on the net. Great prices and they ship in a box where the jacket is safe! Will purchase from this site again and will recommend to others!

Exceptional style, reasonable comfort
Love the assymetric style on this jacket. and the stripe down the back looks amazing too. Fit is slightly loose, although I found this promotes better airflow. Overall quite comfortable. Great protection (CE rated spine padding is bettter than the other Speed and strength jackets in this price range). My one gripe is that the collar pokes at my neck in the front when I'm crouched forward but overall i still love this jacket.

im 6' 3" , 210lbs and the x-large fit nice except for the neck area. the material is very coarse and started irritating my neck forcing me to return it, therefore i cannot comment on airflow.
