Great jacket, better customer service!
Originally I went with the 3x size because that is what my leather jacket says. Imagine my surprise when the jacket came and wowee it was huge! I returned that and got the 2x which was still too big. I returned the 2x for the regular extra large and it was perfect! Customer service was fantastic what with all the exchanges. I was bummed about all the returns cuz I really wanted to get out on the road, and at the same time somewhat happy that I'm not as round as I thought. It's a great jacket, I do wish the sleeves were velcro for a more custom fit. It breathes really well. And another thing, it is BRIGHT. I attached a photo. No one will miss you if you wear this unless they're blind or looking at their phone.

Great comfort, quality as advertised
This jacket is a really good deal. It has the protection I wanted, fits well with sufficient adjustments in critical places that it's comfortable on and off the bike. Would like to see a bit longer adjustment strap on the waist, but it works fine as is. No chafing at the collar (softer material helps that), deep pockets, and it comes in the bright yellow day-glo safety color that I wanted. Zippers are sturdy, too. I'm a female w/ 38" chest so the Large fit well (again, adjustments in various places help). I anticipate riding in at least three seasons in New Mexico with plenty of air flow and room for undershirts in cooler weather. Would definitely recommend this product.

Perfect Airflow and See-ability!
Have a great Aerostich one-piece and also a Darien Jacket, but 80-90 temps made it tough to go with those so went looking for a light mesh with good protection. This is it! 5'6/160. Could've fit the Large...went with the XL so it'd be just slightly roomier and cooler. The other reviews are right. Collar needs some padding 'cause it can annoy with some scratchiness...and snap wrists could use Velcro. That said, the length is perfect on the bike and the immediate relief with feeling the air flow thru is amazing. I see cars notice me early due to the Hi Viz yellow. They see me early and they seem so proud of themselves...even waving at me as I pass by them in the intersection where they DIDN'T pull out in front of me or cut me off! I don't feel like a lightbulb either. It's a flattering cut even without being the countour model. Bugs trampoline off the material and wipe off easily. The zip and bottom snap protector are solid. The price-point is good and the mesh is working exactly as I'd hoped. Makes for an enjoyable ride on my BMW 650cs. I highly recommend and thank Revzilla for taking the time to do the video product reviews! It really helped me decide to buy.

Perfect jacket for warm weather
Love this jacket. The size chart is very accurate. The airflow makes this jacket a great choice for hot weather riding. I still can't believe how much cooler I am in this jacket, and I still feel protected. I used the liner in the rain once and it worked great. The shoulder and elbow pads can be adjusted. I love that you can put it in the washer. The interior pockets are great for your phone, iPod, and other necessities. I’ve worn this jacket all summer and can’t find any fault with it.

Love the HiVis Yellow/Black jacket.
The fit is really good and the quality on the product is excellent. Inserting the liner is a bit confusing with the double snaps on the inner cuffs, which un-snap when the jacket is taken off. Overall, a very good value.

Very pleased
First of all, thank you to Matt for taking time to obtain measurements for me, as I was debating between this and the Contour mesh.

I am about 6' tall with orangutan arms, usually wear a medium, but decided on the large in this jacket as some of the reviews suggested it was a little on the small side and I wanted all the length I could get. It is a very good fit with a little room to spare but not so much I feel it needs to be taken in. The sleeves come to the top of my gloves which have a bit of a cuff. I really like how the elbow armor is in it's own pouch that can be adjusted up or down with the velcro in the lining. It is different from the design in my other gear. I imagine this could fit a wide range of women's builds. The front does not leave my midriff exposed. The longer back provides excellent coverage.

The jacket breathes well in the humid Louisiana summer heat. The back armor seems to be the only exception to this, but I understand it is replaceable. The hi-vis yellow covers the majority of the surface of the jacket, providing visibility from all angles. There are definitely lots of pockets to put stuff too.

Overall I am very pleased, and look forward to summer riding for years to come.

Perfect Summer Jacket
I bought this jacket for my wife, and her only complaint is the lack of color choice in the larger sizes. The jacket fits well and is comfortable. The mesh is really breathable on the back of the bike, with me blocking a lot of the wind, which she appreciates on warm days.

Epic design fail
This jacket has several major design flaws. First, the font of the jacket is not long enough unless you like your jeans cinched up over your belly button. Second, it swims in the waist line girth and the adjustment system at the waist is cheap and useless. It might work if you have a big belly or are pregnant. Lastly, the arms are huge and there is no way to cinch down at the biceps or forearms so again, unless you have elephant arms, these sleeves are going to ride right up in a crash, exposing your arms to pavement. The wrist cinching is also cheap and ineffective. Sizing in the shoulders was decent. I am 5' 7" 117 lbs and chose the size medium. This jacket might be ok as long as you never plan on crashing but the whole point of wearing it is because you just might. Conclusion: this is a Bad jacket at this or any price point. I returned it.

Product looks great
It's difficult to find a jacket color that looks good while also matching my tank but this one fits beautifully. Feels comfortable thus far. My only concern is the length and whether it being a bit snug means I should have ordered one size bigger - 5'5" and went with a ladies medium. Arm length seems good although similar to other reviews, Velcro strapping would have been preferred. Looking forward to the comfortability of this jacket on the road as well as the protection.

Out of all of the jacket options, I chose to go with the first gear mesh tex. I like the fact it has padding in the jacket for additional protection along with its removable breathable inner liner. Jacket came in the color scheme of neon yellow/black I wanted, all in all, it was an easy decision to make!

I really didn't like this jacket, sent it back, for a few reasons: it was way too long and big for an athletic build person such as myself. I'm a little shorter so I was swimming in it. I've had previous Firstgear jackets and the new style isn't quite the same.
