Speed and Strength Women's To The Nines Jacket
Excellent for every season except the hot Australian summer.
I bought this a year ago and it has served me very well in both winter (with the liner) and in early summer (without liner).
As the Aussie summer is very hot, I found the white reflected the heat, but the airflow was lacking. With this in mind, I won't be using this in high summer - I will buy a mesh jacket.
The white is striking and the designs are beautiful and I get lots of interest in the jacket when I ride. Another plus with this white jacket is the increased visibility.
The protection in shoulders, elbows and back are excellent, and with all S & S jackets.
The fit runs a little large, but it isn't so big that it is uncomfortable. Just make sure you measure correctly before ordering.
I'd definitely buy another S & S jacket!

Twice the Product for Half the Price!
I have tried on jackets everywhere and while I have fallen in love with a few, they were never affordable for me. Imagine my surprise discovering everything I was looking for and then some.
I saw this jacket on the website and it looked like it had the cut and fit I liked in a leather jacket so I took a chance. I was so happy to receive it and discovered that not only is it fully armored, the back armor is almost reticulated. I hate the flat back plates and with the side cinches the back plates really fit to your body. you barely notice the elbow and shoulder armor but they are definitely there.
I have read reviews saying that it fits "small" in the larger sizes, but it definitely fits big in the smaller ones. I am typically a small (5'4, 110lb, 36 chest) but after the reviews, I chose an X SMALL, I am so glad I did, it fit me with room to spare for a sweater or hoodie. Keep that in mind with ordering!
I cant say I am a huge fan of the gemstones but I AM a huge fan of the overall design. I love the cheeky wings on the back and the scroll-work in the stitching. The inner liner is super soft and not only goes full sleeve but attaches at the wrist so it doesn't crawl up. (Something you rarely see even in really expensive jackets) I admit to removing the liner immediately as it is summer here, but it will be back in and cozy for fall.

I started with the medium (I am 5'6" and weigh 124 lbs, wearing a C cup) thinking that would fit, but it was wayyyyyy too big. Traded it for the small and it fits PERFECT! Love this jacket!

I think this jacket is awesome for the price. The liner is very warm and comfy and the jacket moves well. It looks very stylish I think and I havent seen anyone else around here with the same jacket. The only complaint I have is the zipper. It gets hung every single time I go to zip it up and a lot of the times when I unzip it. I love it though, so Im willing to put up with this small annoyance. True to size, I think. I got a medium and it fits perfectly like most mediums fit me. Im 5'4" and weigh 138 lbs and have had 2 children so Im not shaped like supermodel and this jacket is an excellent fit.

Looks very good on me!
I love this jacket. It looks great on me. The only thing I don't like is the rhinestones on it. I didn't notice them in the picture. They just look a little to fake or arts and craft like. If that makes sense. It's nothing serious though, still love the jacket. My favorite is the little diamond on the zipper. That should've been all over the jacket.
