Really terrific summer jacket
My first Olympia product, so I come from a new-to-this-brand lens.

Regarding size, I'm just slightly under 6" tall and about 240lbs, chest measures about 49" and normally wear a 35" sleeve length shirt. I carry a lot of weight around the middle. By the size chart I was more of an XXL than an XL, but on the border, and given all the general information about Olympia products being built for real Americans, I ordered the smaller XL. It turns out to be perfect. It is not tight. It is not loose. Just right.

I love the way the Hi-Viz is styled into the Switchback 2. I have never owned a Hi-Viz jacket or vest, and generally have avoided the hazmat look, but this one is styled so tastefully I decided to give it a go. Very happy with it. My daughter calls me Bumblebee, in reference to the Transformers character, which is a good thing. It does catch the eye of others, just as it needs to.

I was aiming for 2.5 to 3 seasons here in Ohio. In hot weather, in direct sunlight, if there is a "hotspot" for me it is right under the back protector. Otherwise, it flows tremendous air.

Fit & finish and overall quality of the build and materials is really excellent. This really has to be among the best quality values in jackets right now. Sure, you can spend more on Klim or Rukka, and I almost did, but it turns out this jacket is built very well from high end textiles at 60% the price of those guys.

Olympia Switchback
Nice jacket and true to size. I usually wear a xl and that jacket would have been fine while wearing the liner and a shirt however I like to wear a heated liner under the jacket. The xl was not big enough so I had to get the next size. The collar, when zipped up and secured is quite high. I normally ride with it not zipped all the way. I ride a 1800 Goldwing

Exactly what I wanted!
I wear a protective jacket year round, even when it is very hot. I was looking for hi viz, with protective pads, and wearable in Spring, Summer, and Fall. The Olympia is IT! The liner goes in and out easily and repels rain very well. I am 5'10" and 185 lbs, and size L fits just right. I've worn it from 40 to 85 degrees F thus far and have been comfortable at all times. The construction is very high quality with no problems so far. I did try a few other similar jackets, and the Olympia is by far the best!

Great warm weather jacket.
Its already warm here in Houston so I immediately removed the liner, and thus, have not tested it. The jacket is very comfortable and a nice fit for my 33" waist. If I was much larger the medium would be a squeeze.
I do wish it had a pocket somewhere that I could slip my phone in and access easily.
I like the jacket a lot and think it looks really good.
Thanks Revzilla for the great service, too.

Excellent jacket
Highly recommend this jacket. A couple of comments though. Collar is comfortable but too tall. Can't zip it all the way up. But that's not a problem with a mesh jacket. The elbow pad adjuster strap is too long and runs out of Velcro before the sleeve at the elbow is tight enough. Sizing is larger than same size older Olympia jacket.

Good jacket at a good price.
I was looking for a jacket that would help me be seen and would flow good air. I live in Florida, and it is hot here much of the year. Previously, I have owned Tourmaster Intake jackets and I have liked them for the most part. The only issue I have had with them was the velcro at the wrist not holding over time. That wasn't a problem until after a few years though, and I haven't had the Olympia jacket nearly that long. So far it seems well made and it is very visible. It only comes with a rain liner, however, unlike the Tourmaster that also has a quilted liner for colder weather. The Olympia also seems to flow a bit less air. Still, I think it is a very nice jacket and I am pleased with my purchase. I can just take along a sweatshirt to wear under in when it is colder outside.

Excellent product for the money
Very pleased with the purchase. Sharp looking. Lots of adjustments to make it fit well. Nice touch with the soft collar. Good airflow with the liner out and good wind and rain blockage with it on or in. Size is true. Very good value for the money!

Awesome mesh jacket
I am very pleased with my purchase of the Olympia Switchback 2. The only regret that I have is that I didn't purchase it in a size XXL instead of an XL. I am 5'9, 220 lbs, tall from the waist and I just wish it was longer and had slightly more room. I'm kicking myself for wasting so much money and not going with the larger size.

The included armor is very nice. The jacket is well made and stylish. There is plenty of ventilation and I wear it while riding everyday, even in the hot Texas summer. The included rain liner keeps the wet out. I am very impressed with the quality of Olympia Jackets and I highly recommend them.

ok jacket air flow so so
I like the jacket the fit is right, a couple of problems, the air flow without the water resistant interior is not ideal, if you ride in hot weather this jacket will run hot. I like the look and the fit, however at 70mph plus the shoulders cover material will "flap", making a quite annoying sound. (I ride a sport bike so no wind screen). Beside that is a good looking jacket and for the price can't go wrong.
