Pokerun Drifter 2.0 Jacket
Nice jacket for the price
I bought this jacket just for the price and because I need it something not so expencive but good protection, it looks nice and have nice features, it's kind of hot, not a lot of wind circulation but what do I spec in the texas heat, other than that is easy to clean and durable so far nothing has ripped or fell off, it feels a little bit bulky and big maybe i need it a size smaller but i think they didnt have at that time, so far is a good jacket for the price i really like it.

Great old school style jacket with new school benefits
I needed to update my leather riding jacket and was looking for something with a little more features as my current jacket was just a traditional leather riding jacket (no removable liner, no armor inserts, no vents). I was having a very difficult time finding something that I liked the style of. My previous jacket was the old school "greaser" style and I really enjoyed how that looked so when I saw this jacket I was instantly interested. The features are great it has a removable liner that is very easy to get in and out, it has two arm vents and two back vents and the front outside pockets also double as vents when left open. The "armor pads" it comes with are okay but I doubt they would protect to much so I would recommend upgrading the armor as soon possible but other than that its a great jacket. Good features, upgradable armor slots and extra points for look and style would recommend.

Every thing I expected from this jacket
I am really impressed with this jacket. I think it is very well crafted and has all the safety you would expect from a much more expensive leather jacket. The size chart for this item provided a spot on fit. It get's a little warm from time to time, but what black jacket doesn't on a sunny day. The vents seem adequate for me and if I need more air I just unzip the jacket a little. The fact that it is water proof is really nice too because it save me from having to worry about rain gear, or at least a rain jacket. I would even go as far as to say that if I ever wear this jacket out I would buy another.

Mostly an awesome jacket
I was surprised by the lack of coverage/reviews on this jacket from RevZilla, however if you want a lot of feedback on this jacket check out motorcycle-superstore's reviews as they have a lot - but of course make the purchase at Revzilla because if you don't like it just return it & you simply can't beat their customer service.
As for the jacket, it has an awesome classic (traditional leather-like) style with but in textile. I dig it! The "SP Memory Foam" is a joke - I had an Alpine Stars jacket before that had actual armor, so I was a little disappointed. I highly recommend, and personally will be switching out the foam for armor. However the style rocks, the chicks dig it, and even older motorcycle riders gave me compliments on it. I wear it on my super sport.
With the open-v style, the zipper only zips up about half way (can close the v and zip up all the way when needed) which adds to the style. Just a side thought, if you wear collar shirts/business clothes underneath the jacket, the opening/exposure will ruffle the collar at high interstate speeds (of course given the style), and can slap you around a little sometimes with some longer collars. Only an issue at high speeds.
The jacket runs hot, it has ventilation but doesn't work nearly as well as my ol' Alpine Stars. I can see it being a great winter jacket, but wouldn't recommend it above 90F. It kills me in city traffic when in the 90s and above.
Overall, I love this jacket, recommend it (with upgraded armor), and would buy it again in a heartbeat.

Good Leather Alternative
All in all I'm satisfied. The only reasons I don't give it a 5 are that (1) the vents don't work as well as those on some other jackets that I have, and (2) fit around the waist is a little loose. On the plus side I like the number and location of pockets. In summary this is a good alternative on days when the weight of a leather jacket is too much, and it definitely looks better than some of the fishnet-type mesh jackets out there.
