On hot days, you'll probably think that putting this jacket is on going to be too hot. But it breathes incredibly well. It's like you're wearing a t-shirt, but with better protection.
Note: The fit runs a little small. So if you're used to wearing Medium jackets, you'll want to get this jacket in a Large.
Also, the back and chest memory foam padding aren't meant for protection, just structure. I plan on buying a rigid back protector and slipping it inside the jacket soon.
PROS: good fit, Adjustable everything, Breathability, Better quality
CONS: Doesn't Come With A Liner
BEST USES: Hot days, Protection

Struggling with the left-handed zipper...not sure why they went with that.
