Good Quality for the price
I picked this up after a crash in a textile/waterproof jacket. It is solid and heavy, I did loose the waterproof capability but after a crash protection is more important to me now, (I will carry rain gear)

For a casual rider to provide sufficient protection, this jacket does the job. One of the inner zippers broke off literally the first time I pulled on it. Clearly, this is not the best quality but for what you pay, it's fine. For protection, it's a decent jacket but I'd like to see more vigorous zippers that not only stay intact but are thicker so I can easily find the connecting point quickly and then zip up. In a word, I'd summarize this jacket as: adequate.

PROS: Great Entry Level Jacket

CONS: Zippers Are Horrendous

Great jacket at a great price.
I purchased this jacket online on Sunday and it got to me on Wednesday at noon. I had previously tried one in a different color on in the store, so I knew which size to order (I suggest this.) This jacket replaces a textile jacket and I have to say that the difference is night & day! This jacket is much heavier than textile, but breathes better and stays cool, even when not moving. It even comes with a zip-out liner to help keep you warm on cooler days. I have seen reviews on many Bilt products stating that the zippers are pretty much universally weak, but I have not had this issue. The zippers were all difficult to move the first few uses, but keeping that in mind, be gentle with them at first, then there's no further issue. Overall, I am very pleased with this jacket and feel that it is a great value at the price Cycle Gear is asking for it (I did get it on sale.) If you're in the market for a new leather jacket, you're doing yourself a disservice if you don't at least consider this one.

PROS: Well Made, Good Fit, Well vented

CONS: none

BEST USES: Track days, Commute, Around town

PROS: Fits Great Breathes Well, Zips Together With Pants

Solid jacket
Awesome jacket. Wanted an Alpinestars or OG Joe Rocket w/ spine protector, but my wallet said no way. Caught this on sale last year at my local CG. After a season of riding, no issues with zippers, no tears no rips. Shoulder protection seems OK and elbow protection is decent too... only thing I can recommend (which the nice salesman did as well) is to pair this up with a nice spine protector or back insert from Dainese or Alpinestars. I hope I never go down but I know that I'd much rather crash wearing a leather jacket than textile.

PROS: Breathability, Stylish, Comfy

Absolute Bargain!
I love this jacket and find it a real value. While the zippers aren't as big as some, they are still, YKK zippers. I've had no problems so far.
The leather is fine and substantial when considering a "get-off" and confidence inspiring when compared to mesh. The neoprene comfortable collar is awesome and should be boasted of in the description.
I could fit a size 38 at a 5"9" 145lbs athletic build but I went with a, size 40 and it's perfect. I believe the forearms may have been too tight with the 38. The torso fit of the 40 is not too loose and doesn't bunch in the stomach. It's still formfitting but not a strict European cut and not as short. The length is fine standing and in crouch position; not riding up too high but just right.
The jacket was comfortable the first time on and all of the stitching was without flaw. This leather isn't top o'the line premium but it doesn't look or feel cheap either. It looks more expensive than it is. In a crash, it will save more skin than a mesh. I got the red/white and the dyed red seems top notch.
The pads are slightly less "beafy" than more expensive jackets but substantial and the back-pad is a basic foam-whatever. The shoulders and elbow pads do cover the areas they are supposed to, unlike some.
Note: I am reviewing a recent purchase and have not worn the jacket long enough to comment on durability.

PROS: comfort, Stretch panels, price, Design, Air flow, Neoprene Collar

CONS: None To Knit-pick

Great Jacket for a great price
Skeptical of buying jacket online without trying, but this fit great, great tough leather, and the venting works great. Zippers are a little tight, but some conservative drops of sewing machine oil got is running smooth. Still a great jacket for the price.

PROS: Great Venting, Great Fit, Nice Liner
