Teknic Aquavent Mesh Jacket
I will do another review after I get a chance to wear the jacket.
It arrived on time from Revzilla. The jacket looks like its made well and it fits as ordered. Its cold here now, but I will soon be riding the sunny roads of Florida and will then review how well the jacket compares. I only gave 3 stars until I can actually use the jacket,

Absolutely loved this jacket !!!
Was a bit skeptical initially as I ordered from India but absolutely loved this jacket. Good ventilation, fit & finish and has Knox armors all at this price. Brilliant Buy, will definitely look at Tecknic products first before others.

Supreme value for money.
The jacket fit perfectly on its own but the protection was slightly shifty around the elbows. The waterproofing is excellent even without the liner (which i removed cause its too hot for my locale). Still breathes air well and looks great to boot. When taken into consideration with the fact that its on sale the jacket is amazing value for money!

Excellent light weight jacket with more preotection than I expected.
This jacket flows a lot of air! No problems there.
It fits pretty much true to size, and is comfortable. The neck of the jacket is nicely padded.
Cordura material is a big plus at this price, as it offers great abrasion protection.
The mp3 player/phone pocket inside the jacket is a nice touch.
Overall this jacket was exactly what I needed for the summer/late summer riding in NC but can be worn in high summer temps as well. One layer underneath and you could probably wear this all year in Eastern NC.

No Frills - and that's how I like it.
This is a great warm weather jacket, plain and simple. Sizing is pretty much spot on - I measured my chest, then ordered 1 size up so I could wear a light hoody underneath for cooler weather, and it fits perfectly.
Jacket length is a little on the short side - ideally the back would be about 3 inches longer for better protection, but it's fine both for riding and for walking around; I only notice the shortness on my sportbike (hugging the gas tank), on the cruiser it's perfect.
The mesh is great - the entire chest, back, and parts of the arms are mesh and provide excellent airflow and breathability, without feeling windy. I would rate airflow at 9.5/10.
It is a comfortable jacket to wear without the liner; it feels lightweight and the material is fine. The liner basically feels like plastic - it's purpose is to keep you dry and that's it. The liner will kill the breathability, and does not feel nice to wear. It's not padded or quilted, it's straight up like wearing a plastic bag on the inside of your jacket. I threw the liner away immediately after trying it - I have a wet weather jacket that is better suited for the task. The armor is a little bulky, not overly uncomfortable, but bulky enough so that you know it's there. It takes a little doing to get the jacket adjusted so that the armor sits right, and even after doing so, the elbows are pretty bulky - think hockey gear. All stress areas are made of durable material and double stitched.
For adjustment, the jacket has snaps on the elbows and forearms, and velcro at the wrists and waist, which allows you to fit the jacket perfectly. It also has velcro straps at the neck and waist to keep your zipper zipped. It has two outside pockets, and one inside pocket (with headphone grommet - nice touch), all with zippers - and that's it for features.
This is a well made, lightweight, no frills jacket. It is my new favorite jacket, and with the addition of a hoody underneath, will be my three-season jacket and I expect to get a lot of use out of it. At this price point, it can't be beat.

This product is really good for the money
I recently started riding again and I live in oklahoma with the most random weather and this jacket is very good for summer spring fall and if you have a high cold tolerance u can use it during winter with the therma inlay in. The breath ability of this jacket supprised me because it feeling like I'm not wearing a jacket at all and I have to keep checking my zipper to make sure it's zipped up. Lol. I recommend this jacket to all age of riders.

Great bang for the buck
I haven't had the jacket long but so far so good.
There is plenty of air flow when moving without the rain liner (haven't rode with the liner in yet). I wore it the other morning when the temps dropped down into the lower 60's and was wishing that air flow wasn't so good! In the hotter weather it has been excellent.
As far as fit goes, the sizing charge is pretty spot on. But I would have liked the jacket to be a tad bit longer and have the sleeves be a bit longer. As it is, I might need to pick up some gauntlet styled gloves instead to keep my arms completely covered.
Overall, I'd recommend the jacket. At the price it is now, you can't go wrong.
