Scorpion Women's Nip Tuck Jacket
Looks great, slightly awkward for tall people
I was looking for a summer jacket to keep me cool during the summer and this jacket is super comfortable and has great airflow. I am tall (5'10") and the jacket fits me a little awkwardly because of it but it was the best of the jackets I ordered. The sleeves are a little short for me and the jacket itself is a little short but all of that just gives me more airflow with the same protection. The cinches on the sides are really great and make the jacket very fitting.

Love the jacket
I love the style of the jacket.
Although the protection pads are a little thin but guess its what makes the jacket less bulky, while still feels protected.
I am 5'3" and I had a small. It fits great.

Nice jacket. I ordered a medium, that is my size but I would have preferred to order a large because a jacket must be a little loose, and this one fits not tight but you dont feel free enough to move. I am 5.7 tall, and my chest measures 34, my shoulder width is 16 inches. I am thin, athletic type. My medium jacket is also a little short for my taste, a little below my waist line. If you like jackets a little loose, as I do, ask for a size more to your true size.

This is a great jacket for the money
The jacket looks great and is very comfortable seems very durable and the armor stays where it should. I ordered the XL baby blue, but I am a tall woman standing at about 5'11 and I have a large bust so it is a little tight in the chest and it comes an inch or 2 to short on my waist. how ever the sleeves were long enough for me and easy enough to move around in while keeping everything where it needs to be. all in all if it fits I would buy it again great product.

nice jacket, but not for me
I really like this jacket, I bought it in off white. I wore it once, and I received tons of compliments when I wore it. I am taller than avg, 5' 9" and wear a size 8-10 and I purchased the Large. Although it fits in the arms, and around the shoulders, it is very large through the waist and hips, and falls short in the length throught the back. AS I sit on my bike, the arms feel good, which is really hard to find at my height, but I am constantly tugging on it to fill the gap between my jackets and pants. I attach the jacket to my Scorpion pants, thinking that will keep them together, but alas the snap keeps undoing when I lean over on my street bike.
Revzilla's return policy is on unused items. So, if you want a good deal on this jacket, check Ebay, I'll be looking to recoup at least part of what I spent on it.

Happy I Purchased This!
This jacket is just what I was looking for in a hot weather jacket. The fit is great and the air flow is much appreciated in this 90+ weather we're having. Put a tank top on under it and I stay pretty cool! Have received compliments on the styling as well. I purchased the white.

Good for tall women
I'm 5'11", with an average bust, skinny waist, and wide hips. Women's motorcycle jackets are typically 2" to 3" too short in the sleeves, especially when reaching forward to the handlebars. Meanwhile men's jackets have huge arms and shoulders and not enough room around the hips; the waist rides up, pushing the back armor into the base of my helmet, and the shoulder and elbow armor just floats around at random. Because of this, I wear custom leathers. Which are really hot in the summer, but what's a girl gonna do? A mesh jacket isn't very protective if the fit is so bad that the armor is always in the wrong spot - and armor that's not in the right spot, is not going to do any good in a crash.
So now that I've got that off my chest, let me say that this Scorpion Nip Tuck jacket fits almost as well as my custom leathers. The sleeves are only about a half inch too short, which can be made up by gloves with gauntlets. The shoulders are the right width and the arms are the right thickness so the armor goes to the right spots and stays there. It doesn't have those irritating arm cinching straps - it's just the right size to begin with, which is a welcome relief. The lacing at the waist allows me to tailor it there to keep the back protector in the right place. It even looks pretty nice, though the tribal tattoo motif is a little silly on someone my age. The black one is more plain which I would have preferred, but white's cooler for summer and more visible in traffic, so I got the white one despite the tribal decorations. The gold one had "bling" beading on the upper arms that I'm sure my braid would catch on - if you're a long hair watch out for that.
The XL seemed a little too roomy so I tried the L, and it was definitely too tight in the shoulders. So then I put the XL back on and pulled in the corset lacing at the sides, and it fixed it right up. Perfect. I bought the XL. In the very few clothing stores that carry women's tall stuff, I usually wear a Medium or Large Tall. So the fit on this is small compared to street clothes - but absolutely typical for women's motorcycle gear, which always runs tiny.
It seems to be well made with quality materials and good armor, though the back protector is a little small. The venting will be great when it gets hot this summer. The tags say it is made in Indonesia.

Great deal on a great jacket!
My wife couldn't be happier with this jacket! She's 5'9 and 135 lbs with long arms and legs and the slightly smaller general size fit perfectly while the sleeves were perfect for her arms. This is our second scorpion jacket (I have the ventech) and we love the cost to quality as well as the style and features.
