True Fit
I am a Harley rider-very comfortable to wear.
I dont even feel the armor in the arms.
Jacket fit is great to even put on t-shirt & sweatshirt.
I like the inner pocket to my ipod inside
Room for my cell phone & other needed items.

Nice affordable jacket for taller people
This was one of the few that actually fit my relatively long torso and long arms. I'm 5'11" with a slender built. Most women's motorcycle jackets are very short. And going up in size usually means a disproportionate increase in circumference and not in length.

I'm happy with this jacket. It's not super cool in warm weather, but that also means it's not super cold in cooler weather. Pretty decent for the mild Bay Area weather. And it has a zipper in the back that allows it to be connected to the Built pants that I have.

The back protector - like in lots of jackets - is a complete joke. Why do they even put that flimsy piece of foam in? A total false sense of safety. Do yourself a favor and get a decent protector! I got the Knox Women's TP2 Advance X, which fits almost perfectly. Minus one star for that "protector" that isn't a protector at all.

PROS: Comfortable

Perfect Summer Jacket
I thought real motorcycle jackets had to be heavy and cumbersome. I was so pleasantly surprised. This jacket has enough pockets to be really functional, vents well for warmer weather, but includes inserts for safety. The price was great, too. I love this jacket!

PROS: Comfortable

BEST USES: Warm Weather, Long Rides, Casual Wear, Safety

Great Jacket
Great jacket and doesn't look manly or like I'm going out racing. Very simple. True to size, though I could have probably gone with a small because you don't really need layering room. I like this jacket!

PROS: Fits true to size

CONS: Little bulky

Cool looking summer jacket!
I purchased this jacket after reading the positive reviews, the jacket on sale was the icing on the cake.
I took the previous review by Cella and upgraded to the Knox women"s TP2 Advance X back protector. Excellent choice and I really appreciate the recommendations in the review section to help and guide us all to more improved riding safety.
A really nice jacket and good protection in the arms and shoulders.
