Tour Master Coaster 3 Leather Jacket
Solid protection in a great looking and functional package
This jacket provides solid protection, outstanding quality, and looks great while doing it. If you like a minimalist approach while still maintaining some style, this is a good jacket for you. I'm of average height with an athletic build and this jacket fit perfectly. When you start to zip it up, you think it's not going to fit because it is snug at the waist, but once you close the zipper at the top, everything settles into place. The overall fit is relaxed with room to move. It's been too cold to test the effectiveness of the ventilation, but I've ridden several times in the mid 40s without a windscreen and I was very comfortable. I'm impressed with this jacket and look forward to seeing how it performs this summer.

Great jacket overall
This is my first leather jacket, and first motorcycle jacket. The elbow pads jiggle around all the time, not sure if all jackets are like this. It is very warm, I've ridden in 20 degree weather before. Looks great too. The only complaint I have is that the threads come apart very easily. I have had my jacket for about a year, and the left arm zipper has completely fallen apart because the threads came out.

Pick this up in the summer for fall and winter riding, just got the chance to wear it. Great fit, leather is a little stiff at first but i can tell by just a few rides it will soften. Thank you to the staff for the help in fitting, the jacket is true to size

Great jacket for the money
I'm 6' tall 255 lbs and I got the xxxl jacket and it fits me good. Arms do seem to run a little small especially with the liner in but not a deal breaker. I looked at a lot of jackets and this one is definitely the best looking sub $240 leather I've found. Vents work well. I've been riding to work in 56 degree weather without the liner and haven't felt chilly yet. The zippers work well. Has good armor in the shoulders and elbows with a thick foam back protector. I have a lot of jackets and I end up wearing this one most of the time.

Very good jacket
Really satisfied with this jacket. The styling is subtle yet not totally bland. The air vents provide enough air movement to keep me cool when cruising even on hot days. It does get hot when stopped in traffic. The leather is good quality as well. I am 6' 155lbs and a medium fits well. It doesn't flap much in the torso at all and only a little in the arms. The zipper is a European style with the pull on the left side. The jacket works well for three seasons without the liner, which I haven't used yet. Been caught in the rain a couple of times and while its not 100% waterproof, it did shed rain better than I thought.

Great looking jacket, tight fit on arms, my zipper fell apart
This is a great jacket, but I have a few complaints. It flows air pretty good I've worn it in about 95 degree weather. At a red light it's pretty hot, but once your moving feels great. One prob I have is i think the arms are kinda tight, but that's just me. The second and most important issue I have is that the zipper on the left wrist just fell apart on me. I've only had the jacket for about 2 weeks. It's my only riding jacket so sending it back will be a real pain.

Superb value for the money !
I bought a BMW R1200R Classic this year. Being a street bike, black with white stripes, I was looking for a jacket to match. After looking at many different options, I choose the Tourmaster Coaster 3. Great jacket, not only "for the money", but in absolute. Good protection, ventilation is more than adequate, comfy and can be worn with a jeans when the bike is at the shop ! No hesitation, buy it ! (I'm 5'10" 185 lbs. Revzilla recommanded me the Large, and it fits well. With the liner on, a Medium would have been too tight).

A nice jacket
I was looking for a basic leather jacket and, having had good luck with Tourmaster in the past, I went with this. It looks good (I got the version with the white stripes) and fits pretty much perfectly--I wear a size 46 jacket and the XL was dead-on. If you remove the liner and open up the vents, you'll get some very noticeable air flow. It feels nice and solid.
Some reflective patches might have been nice, but for fair-weather riding, it's great, and the price is perfectly reasonable.
