Teknic Women's Venom Jacket
Outstanding value! Fits small.
I bought this jacket for my girlfriend. She normally wears a medium or large shirt, and is a size 7. She is 5'5" tall, about 150#. We tried a size 8 based on reviews but had to go up to a 12. Revzilla staff were very courteous and efficient with the exchange. The jacket is very stylish, protective, and versatile for a wide range of weather. She was warm all the way down to 50 degrees at highway speeds with the liner installed. It is a bit short in the back but there is a strap that will loop to jeans or other pants, along with the usual two zippers in the back, to help keep the back from riding up. Overall a great value and she really enjoys wearing this jacket.

Love this jacket. Bought pants as well to zip together.
Absolutely worth the money. Bought the pants to zip to. Wore this on our motorcycle trip to Suches, GA. I had a lot of comments on the style. Would recommend to buy a size larger. Runs small. Kept me warm on the cool mornings.

Fits a little tight so go one size up.
Great value but fits small. Go one size bigger. The main zipper is a little difficult to get started but not so bad that I wouldnt buy this jacket again.
It is a steal !!!

Couldn't be happier. Amazing leather. Very soft and smells so good. Runs a little small. I wear small icon stuff and the 8 fit me well. This is the nicest jacket I have ever had! I just sold my Hella Leather from Icon because this is so perfect. Great venting as well.

Very nice jacket!
I bought this jacket to make a two piece suit with the Women's Venom pants and it worked out great. The jacket runs truer to size as I bought size 8 and I am 5'1" and usually a size M women's shirts. The only fault I find with the jacket is the collar. I wish it was lined with a softer material and had a velcro flap to lock down the zipper pull tab. Not much of a complaint though! I was surprised at how comfortable it was right from the start with little to no break in required, but still very protective. I also like the way it looks - stylish, but not super girly. I even got a compliment on it from a former female AMA Superbike racer my first day wearing it - Can't beat that!

Amazing Value - Good Coverage - Great Look
This was a birthday gift. I had my heart set on a full-price Dainese but, this jacket was on sale... I am SO GLAD I got it.
I love how it gives me a nice shilouette. I was really worried it would be too tight (as per other reviews) and/or too sqaure-ish like a football player. It's not.
I am a little curvier now than the last time I got a jacket. 5'4, large chested and 160 lbs. In clothes I'm wearing a size 8-12 depending on the brand.
We ordered the size 10. (thinking if it's too tight it will motivate me to lose weight.) It's PERFECT. Snug but still lots of room for layering. The 12 would have been way too big. I'm not tiny so please heed this advice when I say it's a normal fitting jacket. I still would have been okay in size 8.
It's not all leather but, now I prefer this. There is stretch where it's needed. My bike is all black and I ride into work during the night so I like the white accents for visibility.
The only thing I'm disappointed in is the lack of body armour in the arms. All in all it's a great value without sacrificing any stlying.

Excellent jacket with a nice fit and good lines!
This is a beautiful jacket that is exceptionally comfortable. Could use anoher pocket or two (because you can't carry a purse on a bike lol) but other than that this jacket is an exceptional value! I'm very happy with it!

I was a little apprehensive about ordering a jacket online because the few times I have tried on female leather jackets with protection in them, (stores tend to have slim seclections when it comes to womens riding gear) they never seemed to fit properly or the elbow padding wouldn't stay comfortably in place once in riding position. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find that this jacket was the prefect fit all around. There are adjustable straps on the sides to customize how tight it is and the back comes down further then the front. The only thing I dislike about it, is the collar, it irritates my neck...but a light scarf fixes that.
