Great summer jacket
I've been riding in this for a few years now in Oregon and 6 weeks in Vietnam. Great air flow! During the summer, I pair it with the Airglide pants for dual sport riding. The black can make it a little hot, but it is good value and has been very durable. The velcro straps on the inside of the elbow sometimes come undone. But otherwise no complaints.

Best textile jacket I hsve owned!!
I love the fit of the Olympia Jacket but the shoulder area runs a little loose for my liking. That said I also wanted slightly larger to have room for my heated jacket. I will be sticking with Olympia and will purchase again.
NOTE: I have had zero fade unlike my wife's Olympia Eve jacket so appears to be different material or treatment in the light colored areas.

Great bang for the buck
I spent a lot of time looking for a jacket that wasn't outrageously expensive, but was versatile. The jacket fits well, provides good visibility at night, and comes with built armor, so there is no added cost to purchase separately. It allows enough room for layering, and I've ridden at 40 degrees comfortably in it. Remove the liner and it's a great mesh. The airflow is outstanding, and feels like it will be great for a summer time jacket, which is the main reason I bought it. I'd say for the price you really can't go wrong with it. The only tiny gripe I could have is that the Velcro in the liner sometimes gets in the way of the mesh, and can rough it up a bit. Other than that the thing is perfect for what I need it for.

Switchback 2
Overall the Olympia Switchback 2 is a great jacket. The features, comfort, and style suits my tastes. The jacket is comfortable with or without the removable rain liner. The jacket and liner alone kept me warm in 40 degree rainy weather, even at 70MPH highway speeds. Included CE rated armor was an added value and fit unobtrusively. The fabric is tough yet sleek and stylish in appearance.

For me, there are a couple of issues of note keeping it from a 5 star rating. First is the fit. The torso is a bit short and the sleeves are a bit long. That may not be the case for others, but the second issue, the velcro, justifies my rating. While the velcro in other locations work ok, the velcro on the collar and sleeves work POORLY. The velcro at the arms barely work and forget about using the velcro collar, especially with the liner. They both release with the slightest bit of stress. It's interesting that the flap at the base of the main zipper (the one to protect the gas tank from getting scratched) has a button snap instead of velcro. Personally, I would have appreciated snaps at the collar and sleeves too.

Check out the Airglide
Boiled down, this jacket is a great option to keep you cool in hot summer riding while offering a good suite of armor and abrasion resistance at a fair price. Size is pretty true, if not a little big but that can allow layers for underneath on those cool summer nights. The zipper pulls on the pockets, not the main zip, could be better (one was broken when it arrived) but the zippers themselves are very sturdy. The rain liner is truly waterproof which was nice to find out as I got caught in a moderate storm the second time out. However, the pockets in the rain liner are not, they just snap shut, no zippers. All in all, this jacket serves its purpose and gets the job done.
With this jacket, I find myself wishing for a little more warmth without having to carry my own mid layer and for the rain liner to serve better as a destination liner. The lack of zipper pockets on the liner is a small nit pick but it would have been nice and it would be great to stretch this beyond the summer in Michigan. Both of these nit picks are solved with the Airglide. Take a look at that before deciding on your next mesh jacket.

The thing that really attracted me to this jacket is the fact that it has all of the armor already included that a rider really needs for a decent riding jacket. Some of the more popular brands have jackets which cost more, yet seem to be made from less durable material, and are lacking in the armor dept. This jacket is made from Cordura, which I've heard is a top of the line fabric as far a abrasion resistance, and it has CE armor in the elbows, shoulders, and back. I really do feel more confident when riding with a jacket like this on, because in the unfortunate event if were to go down, I feel like this jacket would put some durability between myself and the asphalt. I hope I never have to put that to the test though.

I believe that this is marketed as a cool to warm weather jacket, not being a winter jacket, but I have used it in temps as low as 40 degrees Fahrenheit. I layer up under the jacket with a flannel shirt and a light sweater, with the jacket on top. It keeps me warm enough even at freeway speed. I have used the jacket in light rain and it has kept me dry.

The only gripe I have, which is a minor one, is with the liner on the inside of the inner layer (windbreaker layer). The windbreaker itself is fine, but there is a mesh type layer inside of it with always balls up whenever putting the jacket on, or taking it off. So when I slide my arms in, the mesh gets all messed up and ends up sticking all out of the arm hole and needs to be re-situated. Not a big deal, just thought I'd point it out.

Over all I really like the product, and feel like it will serve me well for some time.

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.

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.

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

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!
