Speed and Strength Women's Radar Love Mesh Jacket
Not enough airflow
This jacket just doesn't work for me here on Oahu, Hawaii where humidity is usually in the 60s-70s and temps in the 70's-80s. There just isn't enough airflow. I have to wear the jacket open and even then I still end up with a sweaty upper back (yuck). If I use the snaps to secure the elbow armor in place, I end up with sweaty arms (really yuck). It would be so much better with back and arm air vents. It is really horrible in stop and go traffic. Once I get off the bike, I immediately take the jacket off and turn the sleeves inside out so they can dry. The inner liner does nothing for wicking off the perspiration, all it does it block what little airflow I get. It's awesome when I ride on the windward side of the island which is cooler and has an occasional refreshing sprinkle, but once I cross the mountains onto the leeward side, the bright sun, humidity, and traffic really makes this jacket uncomfortable. On the plus side, I do get a lot of compliments on the look and it does have good armor (though not yet tested), so yeah, I still use it and suffer the perspiration.

Good jacket for new rider
I bought this jacket for my wife for when we ride together. Her main concern in getting this jacket was that it would be too short and ride up at the waist when she's sitting on the bike. It doesn't.
She also likes the adjustments on the arms and waist. Fits true to size.
Originally wanted the white jacket, but it was sold out, so she went with the red. Looks sharp!

Super stylish and great fit!
I LOVE this jacket -- I'd say that it runs a bit larger than you would expect for a mesh. I typically wear an XL but the Large is perfect (I'm 6'1, 175 pounds). I am very busty and usually it's very difficult for me to find jackets that fit around the bust that aren't HUGE everywhere else. It is extremely comfortable and the airflow is fantastic. I especially like that it's a bit longer longer in the back so it doesn't tend to ride up. There is a light-weight vest that zips out -- it doesn't really do much anyway so I just leave it out. I ride with a motorcycle purse, but if I didn't I would be complaining about the lack of storage pockets. There are 2 hand pockets and only one small inside zipper for an MP3. My husband says the jacket is really flattering and I would definitely recommend it!! Needless to say ... shipping was lightening fast.

Ordered this jacket (in all black) as a light jacket to wear in the "warmer" months. The jacket seems to be very good quality. There is protection at the elbows and in the back. The jacket sizing is accurate. I cannot attest to how it holds up over time, but overall, it seems like a great jacket!

great bang for your buck
My wife enjoys wearing it. The only thing I would do is upgrade the protective armor. You can always have a little more protection.

Great summer jacket, could use a couple extra pockets
I got this jacket for my girlfriend and she loves it. You can't tell without looking close, but under the silver SS on the chest is a frilly script "Speed & Strength" in black rubber; it's sort of "girly" but very subtle.
The jacket, including the mesh panels, feels pretty sturdy. The back protector is substantial, but light. The mesh is tighter than on my jacket and I suspect would hold up better in a get-off.
Our only gripe is that there aren't inside pockets for wallet/phone. This isn't quite a gripe, but the snug fit will make it hard to layer underneath for anyone looking for a touring solution.

Looks good. Fits well.
I bought this for my wife and she loves it. She wears it to sporting events even when we aren't riding because she likes how it looks and feels.
