Tour Master Coaster 3 Leather Jacket
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.

Super comfortable, cool style, great protection.
I literally searched through almost a hundred jackets before I settled on this one. If I was goin to spend almost three hundred bucks on a jacket I was going to be picky. I was looking for something that looked cool (not like a speed racer jacket or something you'd see a crusty old dude wearing on an old harley, but something in between), something safe with thick quality leather as well as CE rated protection, and something that would be comfortable in the three seasons of northeastern pennsylvania. The tourmaster coaster three fits all this criteria. As soon as I got my jacket (within two days) I immediately put it on and suited up for a 35-40 degree ride. At 5"9 165 lbs the medium fit me just right and kept me warm and comfortable on a 45 minute windy ride with flurries! Not only that but I also rode with peace of mind that if I did hit the pavement, my upper body would be highly protected. Other pros about the jacket: if I ever decide to quit riding, or I want a nice warm jacket for the off season, I could easily remove the armor And sport a sweet leather. Obviously I can't review the or masters warm weather capabilities, but with eight vents and a removable liner, I'm sure ill be able to rock this jacket all year round. Thanks again revzilla and tourmaster! I can't really see what else this 275$ jacket lacks that a 600+ jacket would provide. Very satisfied!

Great Jacket Great Price
I bought this jacket after my Roland Sands Tracker's main zipper failed. This jacket is superior in every way for about 2/3 of the price. I got the all black version. One of the great things about this jacket is that it looks like a motorcycle jacket without making you look like a "boy racer". The stitching and finishing seem well done. The armor is very good... the back armor is removable and is made of foam, but is very thick and protective. The only negatives I have are very slight: The zipper pulls are cheap pieces of ribbon which say "Tourmaster", also, with the liner sleeves installed, the arms are very narrow and tight. I will usually not have the sleeves installed. Otherwise, this is a great value.
BTW I am 5'7" 185# athletic build and the Large fits like a glove.

This is a great jacket for the price. It offers good protection without destroying your wallet and has a good amount of air flow.

Good bang for the buck
I am 6 Foot, 180 pounds, 41 in. Chest, and a little bit of padding around my belly. I got the size Large. It fits me well but snug. If you don't have the belly I would say go large. If you have a gut maybe try XL. In the chest fits fine with room to spare. Just in the belly area is it snug. Also the sleeves are very narrow. So if you have big arms it may be a problem. I have skinny arms and its not a problem but If my forearms were any bigger it would be an issue. On a bike the jacket fits as a jacket should, snug so the armor stays in place. But if you want to wear it around on foot you may need to go up in size. But then again it's all do to my extra padded belly. Otherwise the jacket is a great jacket. I was warm riding at 50 degrees and next spring when it warms up I'm sure the 8 vents will let me extend the jacket into the spring and fall.(I live in the dessert).

XL fits perfectly; 6'0", 180 pounds. Thought the back would be a little lower, but overall excellent value and buy
