PROS: Keeps You Cool, Perfect For Hot Weather
CONS: Sleeves Too Long, Runs A Bit Small
I went ahead and upgraded the back protector with the Alpinestar upgrade. And shoulders and elbows with icon level 2 protection. Though the original shoulders and elbows is great. But my wife's jacket protection had disintegrated.
So I gave her my elbow and shoulder protection. And her speed and strength jacket.. Only thing is I can't figure out how to upgrade the chest protection. But I'm sure the original foam will be just fine
the jacket warms up a bit when stopped, but once you get moving, it somehow regulates air and temperature wonderfully. i've had mesh jackets that feel like the wind passes right through, to the point of chilly at highway speeds. this jacket stays at a comfortable temperature from start to highway, maintaining the same comfortable temperature no matter the wind/speed.
pockets are plentiful, including a water proof chest pocket just in case.
the sleeves are snug, i fit Large Bilt, sedici, reax jackets, but this jacket is really snug in the arms. the large would not let my arm all the way through.
XL at 5'9" 175lbs in fit shape, with extra room in the waist due to sizing up one. the L had me fit in the waist and chest.
the sleeves are a velcro cinch closure around the wrist, but it is soft and not very thick, fits inside gauntlet gloves well.
