Spidi JK Leather Jacket
This jacket is a testament of how underrated Spidi is compared to other brands
I bought this jacket at Revzilla last summer as my first motorcycle jacket- the key points that sealed the deal were the lambskin leather, style and fit.
I felt the chemistry instantly when I tried this jacket on at a local shop-it's much more comfortable than all the Dainese leathers I've tried thanks to the lambskin leather. The fit was also perfect- I'm a US34 wearing size small; the jacket gives a subtle balance of a streamlined profile and a touch of bulk that's not too excessive, even with the thermal liner and pads.
Its only obvious flaw is its lack of ventilation. I live in a city with year-round moderate weather so it's not an issue for me, but it's not an ideal all-weather jacket by any means. I'd give this jacket a temperature rating at 40s-60s with the thermal liner, and 60s-low 80s without the liner. I have used this jacket in 30s and even triple digit weather, and while I live to tell the tale, I would not recommend it.
Overall, I'm very glad I bought this jacket; it will be my benchmark for all future try & buy jackets.

Great jacket looks good feels great!
It took me a few months to pick a jacket after trying on a few my girlfriend ( a vegetarian who hates leather) said the jk looks great and insisted I buy it, it's very comfortable I added the warrior back and you barely feel it, I'm really happy with this jacket nice enough to wear out on the town and gives a real feeling of protection ,there are some features that I didn't notice at first if you'd like I'll be glad to elaborate in an email

Great looks, excellent protection.
It's a great jacket. I wanted style, protection, and the ability to wear it in late fall / early winter with the included liner. It's exactly what I got with the Spidi JK.
I wear it on and off the bike. Looks casual, yet very high-end with the goatskin leather.
I feel very confident that the elbow and shoulder pads will hold up fine, if I did ever take a spill.
The fit is perfect with the liner on/off. I wear a Medium @ 5' 8" ~150 lbs. and its fine.
Another great product from Revzilla and Spidi!
(I wish it came in a dark brown :P)

Great looking jacket with adequate protection. Still too warm for a couple more weeks here in NOVA. Can't wait to wear it on the regular.

Great for cool summer
I think it's more style than protection because of very soft leather. But it looks amazing!

Spidi JK: Awesome jacket, runs one size small.
I was looking for a cool cafe racer style leather that had CE rated armor and the Spidi JK was exactly what I was looking for! The style and quality on this Spidi leather is top notch. It's a super comfortable jacket that I've been able to wear in both ends of the weather spectrum. And as a bonus the armor doesn't protrude out and look bulky so I can wear this around town with some jeans and no one would know it's a technical piece.
This jacket does run a size small. I'm 6'1" 195lbs and according to the sizing chart I would wear a L. It was so tight I couldn't hit the riding position, so I had it exchanged for an XL which fit me like a glove. If you're having to think about it just go a size larger and thank me later.
I just don't have enough good things to say about this piece of leather. Get it!
