Speed and Strength Coast Is Clear SX Jacket
Excellent Jacket at great price!
I am a sport touring rider on a VFR 800 and on my second season with this jacket - love it! Ride in NH, VT and ME and all temperatures from 90 to 50 - this jacket with the zip off sleeves and vents works well when moving in 90 degress and equally at 50 with sleves and both liners in!
My only negative is I want to get one for my wife and it seems very difficult to find the right size/color and it looks like this jacket may not be made any longer - BIG MISTAKE - this jacket is the best for the price I have seen - keep makin em please!!!!

great! Get it while you can.
This jacket looks great and has adequete protection and air flow. I wanted something i could wear everyday no matter what the temp was. with all vents open and the sleeves off, you could ride comfortably in 85-90 degree heat. Haven't had a chance to test in the cold yet. I haven't ridden in the recent heat wave in northwest indiana 100 plus temps and humid. I always wear a helmut and jacket so too hot for now. I bought the blue and black large and it fits good. there is enough room to wear a hoodie in the colder months. I am 6' 2" 175-180 lbs. I like it. Watch the video review they have up. it gives you a good idea of the style and how it might fit you. great jacket.

A Great Buy
I bought the blue version of this jacket and love it! I had the winter liner in for riding when it was about 30 degrees outside and it kept me warm really well. The rain liner is very easy to remove and it works well. I am not dissapointed with this jacket and hope to see what they have in the future!

This is my first proper bike jacket, and love it. I wore it to ride my bike on highway during cold/rain. didn't feel cold or wet when it was around 40-45F and raining on I5.
One thing I noticed is that when taking the jacket-off the inner sleeve liner comes off. I just it's just me and need to figure out the jacket a bit more.

Good Price for the Features
I really like this jacket. My son has one and let me try his , I bought it right after that. I replaced an old leather jacket that no longer fit me. This jacket with the removable sleeves and liners is a good all season jacket, no need for multiple jackets or uncomfortable rides.

Great features, great price
I haven't actually used this jacket in the summer yet but it seems to flow air pretty well with the two front and one rear vent. When you zip off the removable arms there seems to be a lot of air flow through the underarm as well. The removable rain liner and insulated vest are nice additions for cold days. The flexible strap and buttons that allow your to adjust and position the elbow armor are a plus.
Overall the jacket is pretty heavy and the aesthetics are not quite what i desire most but when you compare cost, features and looks I think it's worth it.

Fits Well. Feels Sturdy. Looks Good.
I came from a motocross background so I don't know too much about street clothes. I do know that I like all the features of this jacket for the (relatively) low cost. I wore this for the two days of my MSF BRC class and did not have any problems with chaffing or discomfort. The pads feel sturdy and the construction seems good enough. I would recommend this jacket due to the price/features ratio and I feel it's a good buy.

Great multi-season jacket
This jacket has a lot of nice features. There is a removable full waterproof liner and a vest warmth layer. The vest layer can be installed alone in the jacket or in combination with the waterproof layer. For those hot days, the arm sleeves are removable, but there is still a mesh layer which holds in the elbow pads. There are vents on the chest and also the back. There are a lot of options. I have ridden in very hot PA summer weather and was very comfortable without the sleeves and all the vents open. I also added the warmth layer for a 50 degree riding day and was also very comfortable. The various layers zip in and out very quickly. There are snaps on the elbows and around the waist for a tighter fit. The material is very durable and cleans up very easily. The only downside is the elbow pads move around when you take it off and on. But a quick adjustment and you are fine with no irritations. I have not worn it in colder than 50 degrees yet but I think it can easily handle colder temperatures.
