Speed and Strength Women's Radar Love Mesh Jacket
I bougth this jacket in red for my daughter (16yrs old) and she loves it. She's about 5"6" at 115 and the small fit her perfectly with a little room to spar. She has a very small frame, but this jacket hugs her little body in the right spots - great job! Great protection for the price and she never complain about being hot (even though we havent reached summer yet).

Look no further
In need of a breathable jacket for summer days so I've decided to go for Medium sized White. Boy, was I impressed! Everyone complimented on how smart I look (in it of course). Medium is probably just a tad big for me (5'6" 132lbs) but that only means there's room for bulkier clothes for cooler weather, if need be. Love the button elbow straps instead of velcro! The only ask would be more pockets (or at least deeper pockets) for various bits and pieces please. Awesome jacket overall!!

Bought this for my spouse. She loves it. Great jacket for summer, internal liner actually helps cool the jacket.

GREAT airflow and fit!!
I live in South Georgia and it gets pretty hot during the summer, well it's hot up until Christmas! My husband and I were going to be riding to Tennessee to ride the Dragon's Tail, so I needed a much cooler jacket (plus I had torn off the zippers on my other jacket from when we flipped the bike).
I own a Speed and Strength Kiss and Tell textile jacket and a Joe Rocket jacket. I decided to go with the Radar Love jacket to match my husband and I read the reviews about how great the airflow was! And MAN! This is probably the best decision in a purchase for riding gear I have ever made!
I am 5'2", 160 pounds and bra size 36D. I wear the medium and it fits PERFECTLY. I have a curvy figure and it is snug in all the right places! The liner is very flexible and comfortable too! Another great feature is the adjustable elbow straps. I have shorter, smaller arms so this feature is great to have (this was actually one of the deal breakers when comparing this jacket to the Icon Contra jacket). When standing with my arms by my side this jacket falls about 2 inches past my waist, so the length is great. It doesn't ride up when riding either.
The only downfall to this jacket is it is not so good for riding in cold weather. When the weather drops to around 40 (about 2-3 weeks out of our year) I freeze as a passenger.
I highly recommend this jacket because you can't beat the price with the many features and great airflow it offers.

Fits and breathes well, wish it had more storage
I purchased this for my wife to ride with me. I liked the price, she likes the fit, style and breath-ability. Since I will likely only take her out in nice weather, no problem. I do wish it had more pockets for things, but thats a minor issue. Overall very pleased with this purchase.

Love my jacket!
I wanted to wait a few weeks before I reviewed this jacket to give it an accurate opinion. This is my first jacket and I absolutely love it!
I am 5'7" and 120lbs, so I decided to order the jacket in an XS in white. I was expecting the jacket to fit very snug, however there is ample room for a light zip-up on cooler days/nights.
The white color is nice and bright and the S&S logo on the front and back are a reflective silver, both which are great for visibility at night.
The jacket offers three pockets -- two on the outside and one inside the right chest area. I love the external pockets because they zip down rather than up, so it is less likely they will unzip at high speeds. I use the chest pocket to store my phone because it just feels safer and more comfortable.
The armor feels very durable, but without being too stiff to move or sit comfortably. The jacket also breathes very well, which is awesome for the recent hot weather over here.
The only issue I have with the jacket is that I wished it had more "girly" elements to it. There's one rhinestone on the main zipper. That's it. Lmao..
But with all of that being said, the S&S Radar Love Mesh Jacket is a great jacket for first-timers like myself!

saved my butt today!
So for starters im about 5'7" and it fits me pretty well, this jacket is a bit longer than most womens jacket (i dont own another jacket for comparison but just from eyeing the other products) which is an absolute requirement for me (because who wants their crack hanging out at 70mph?!).
i did crash today because i went too fast while entering a curve and grabbed the breaks while trying to turn because slowing down within such a short distance was out of the questions, plus i was also fixated on the area that i was about to crash in so that didnt help either.
though i did land on a soft patch of grass/dirt i felt that this jacket soften the impact and protected me like it should. most of the visible dirt traces on me where on either my elbow/should/or back which had armor padding.
i didnt crash into anyone or any car but there was one fatality on this day, which was the dead little bug i later found on the back of my jacket.... sorry bug!
