Expensive, but good protection and looks for commuting
I bought this jacket because offers the protection I need for my style of riding in California and looks good doing it. In winters, the included lining helps keep out the cold, but you won't get much cold protection around your neck. It's "cold" weather capabilities make it too hot in the summer since there is minimal airflow. Bottom line: If you like the style, don't need crazy amounts of protection (e.g. you're not going to the track, rather just commuting), and have the money, this is a great jacket.

Time Will Tell
I bought this jacket because I liked the style and the features. I was looking for a lightweight, supple leather jacket with a vintage look. This jacket hit all three marks.
Previously I owned a Vanson Dominator (too heavy) and a Joe Rocket Sonic (too stiff).
I'm 5'9", weigh 175#, and the size 50 fits fine, just a little snug around the waist.
The jacket has no vents, so it's a little warm at times here in Hawaii. I know it won't offer the same level of protection as the Vanson or the Rocket, but it feels a lot more comfortable.
One thing, there is no velcro adjustment as advertised, the waist adjustment is with buckles.
My only complaint is that I wish the price was more reasonable, and I have to see if this jacket will hold up over time.
I ride a Honda CB1100.

Thang D:Hey there. Measured from the outside, my 52 jacket has a ~28.5'' length from side-shoulder threads, down and around the elbow, to the cuff. It has an 18'' length from the under arm threads to the cuff.Mar 8, 2014
john p asked:Debating between this jacket and REVIT REDHOOK. My hesitation on both is leather strength. Which would hold up better in a slide? Euro-style leather jackets appear to be this, although comfortable? Any thoughts?Sep 2, 2014
Thang D:The Spidi Ace jacket, while leather, is geared more towards style and less towards function. This isn't a proper leather jacket for high speeds nor aggressive canyon carving. Even with the included armor, it is more of an urban jacket....
Since this is my winter jacket, I sized up for both its thermal liner as well as an additional layer for those 50-55 degree nights in Texas. If you're accustomed to colder northern nights, then you could possibly bear lower temperatures.
While 75 degree days can be bearable during sunny days, expect to sweat a bit during hotter days since ventilation can be next to nil.
Thanks for your note. Can you recommend a jacket that maintains "cool-factor" for urban riding but can withstand a good slide? I sold my old Vanson jacket (Comp Leather) beacuse it was too aggressive looking. Need something more "cafe racer", but substantial enough to protect. Any thoughts welcome.

Unfortunately, I cannot. Prolonged road rash on a single spot will likely trash most casual jackets (and then some). Aggressive jackets are typically designed for -- well -- aggressive crashes.
Good luck in your hunt. I would be interested in hearing about your findings.
Alexander W asked:I know the description says it'll support the Warrior level 1 protection. Wondering if the Warrior EVO is also supported, as they look like they're the same shape / size as well as the EVO's description saying "To be worn inside most new Spidi jackets released after 2011"? Thanks!Jul 14, 2014
Thang D:Having spoken to the Revzilla Gear Geeks, this jacket should not support the Spidi Warrior EVO back protector. My Warrior Comp 510 fits the jacket nicely with spare room in the lower back. The protector is currently packed tightly in my summer Dainese Jacket, so I cannot remove it for fear of excessive wear to the Dainese.
Comparing the pictures of the two back protector, the Warrior EVO may extend past the lower opening of my Eur-52 jacket. Since the back protector is attached using hook and loop velcro, you may consider placing it nearer the top of the jacket for a distasteful look and comfort. Proper placement will likely give a yellow tuxedo-like tail which may deter all lady encounters, though aliens might warm up to it.Jul 16, 2014
