This is my first riding jacket, and it's pretty fantastic. Fits great, plenty of pockets, removable liner, and looks badass without being overly gaudy. I used it yesterday during the MSF course and it was 35 degrees out and I was plenty warm, I even opened the sleeve vents for a bit. Probably too warm for summer even with the liner out, but for spring/fall I doubt you'll find a better jacket for the money.

Acording to features and other considerations like price, this is the best jacket I have ever purchased. Even if you have a more expensive one, this a perfect backup or principal option.
Congratulations, this jacket is an excelent purchase.

This is a great jacket. It really keeps the wind out and keeps you warm. I wore it in 30 degree weather for several hours and never got cold.

Perfect. Awesome jacket.
I bought this jacket looking for one I could wear all season long. This last week has had some bipolar weather, so I've had experience in cold rain and hot sun.
The vents in this jacket (which ARE waterproof; I test all my gear by running it under the sink) work VERY well. You can feel the air hit your chest while you're and a few times I second guessed myself as to whether or not the jacket was even zipped. If you don't need vents, guess what? The chest vents and lower back vents double as POCKETS.
That's right, pockets. As if this bad boy NEEDED more pockets. There are SO many pockets on this thing, it's ridiculous. Any small item you might need to carry can easily be carried in rain proof pockets located all over the thing. There's four pockets on the front, pockets under each one of those (Two of which are great for a passenger wearing summer gloves in cold weather), there's three pockets on the inside, three pockets in the included liner, and the fanny pack on the back.
With the vents closed, it makes for a fairly warm jacket, good for about 45-60 degrees farenheit, but the liner is great. On the day of this writing, I took a ride through a cold, rainy day, freezing cold without the liner, and went back out again WITH the liner and could not have had a cozier ride. The liner makes the jacket impressively warm with only a thin thermal shirt underneath.
As for comfort, this jacket is amazing. The microfiber cuffs and neck are a nice touch.
Now for the complaints: in hotter weather, even with the vents open, if you aren't moving you may find yourself getting a little bit warmer than is comfortable. Also the storm flap on front, while making this a great jacket in the rain, kind of makes it a pain to take off. I wish they had gone with magnets instead, because velcro is annoying, loud, and wears out over time. The "phoslite" reflective piping isn't great, but the triangle on the back is quite reflective. Also it kind of looks like an older biker's jacket, but that's not really a con to me. I kind of dig it.
All in all, I really like this jacket. I bought it looking to never buy another jacket again, and I think I found the one.
If you need a jacket that's good for every season, is waterproof, has plenty of storage space, and feels great to wear at a great price, you don't have to look any further; This is the one.

Very solid jacket
I haven't worn the jacket on my recently purchased 2002 VTX, but I just can't wait. This jacket is incredibly strong and well made. I love the look, and know that I will be very well protected wearing it.

I have owned the Rincon for 2 years now; recently purchased a 2nd one to hang in my closet for future useage. I love this jacket. Outside shell material is a modern version of the old duel-purpose "waxed-cotton" and I really like that. 3/4 overall length with 2nd bottom zipper to relieve tension is good... zippers durable so far. The jacket is very (surprisingly) warm with the winter liner zipped in, and pretty waterproof between the additional permanent water-proof liner and outer finish that wicks rain away. Sleeves and neck are generous on my 3XL, but not wacko-long or too small either. Remove the winter liner and open all zippered vents for a much lighter jacket and usable up to 65-70 degrees. Comes armored but I removed mine to reduce bulk. Lots of hidden pockets I've never used. Wear mine all the time, including 18-degree commutes and it keeps me toasty without "electric" as long as I layer-up. I highly recommend this jacket for the reasonable price!
