Thom M on May 12, 2017
I have Held's catalog, and liked features and reviews. Unfortunately, the medium did not fit me comfortably.Small in the arms. I am only 5'7", and the next size up would have been too long in the body.

Wanted a jacket that allowed for warmth in the early morning and breathability during mid-day.
Wanted a jacket that had good protection and minimum bulk.
Well tailored

The Klim variety's collar is too tall.
The reviews (only two admittedly) were good, and I was tired of looking.
Fingers crossed, this will be a good replacement for my BMW Rally 2.
How do I upgrade the armour though?

Is the space in the back pocket adequate for storing the gore-Tex liner long term? I like the idea of keeping everything together so if I need the liner I'll have it.
Daniel M on Aug 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely!
Has this jacket got a connecting zip ?
Thanks,
Ian.

A shopper on Jan 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, there is a zipper that allows you to connect the trousers to the jacket, if desired.
What's the difference between the Held Carese jacket and the Carese II jacket? The pics and descriptions look very similar...
Stephen S on Mar 31, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure what the differences are, but I'm hoping it doesn't change how it mates to the Torno pants. I went down at 80mph while wearing the original Carese (though I chose not to wear my Tornos that day -- stupid, I know) and I owe my skin/life to this jacket's flawless performance. The fit/finish is brilliant and ventilation is second only to a full-mesh jacket. Sealed up, with the Gore-Tex liner installed, it would get me through all but the worst winter weather. Be advised, although Held likes to market this as "Quattrotempi" or "Four Season", it's not really appropriate for true winter conditions. (Get yourself a Rukka Armas jacket for true winter riding). If you consider this a 3-season jacket, you'll be very VERY pleased.
I have a Held leather jacket which I purchased in Germany and love and am strongly considering the Carese II. Can anybody confirm that the proper back protector is the Held SAS TEC? http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/held-sas-tec-back-protector-ii If so, just want to confirm that a large jacket would use the large protector. Thanks in advance for any help.
Randy S on Aug 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have the large Carese II jacket and ordered the SAS TEC large back protector and it fits perfectly. Definitely recommend getting it - the back protector that comes in the Carese II is just a piece of foam, offering no protection. I also ordered the SAS hip protectors for the Carese II pants and they fit great, replacing the foam pieces that came with it.
In the market for a new jacket. I love the look and detail of this product and it will fit the bill I'm sure. My question is about sizing. I am usually a 2XL with the American cut bulky jackets (eg Olympia AST2). Any pointers here?
A shopper on Jan 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The jacket definitely runs small. I usually wear an XL, and I ended up in a XXL
Re: Wearing the liner on the outside of the jacket: Anthony does not mention this as an option in the video, but a couple of reviewers mentioned it. Can it actually be worn as an outer layer, and if so, wouldn't the liner be sort of bunched up and wrinkly if one wore it on the inside?
Timothy A on Oct 12, 2017
Does this jacket have a YKK 360 connection zipper? Can it connect to other brand pants, i.e. Rev'it pants?
