Skeptic turned believer
I usually wear a 40 size jacket and the medium fit almost perfect. Not too short and not constricting in the arms or chest. Quality seems to be on par with Joe Rocket. Stitching looks good and the material feels pretty durable. Vents on the arms, sides, back and chest open up with zippers. The jacket comes with a removable lining and soft armor but would've liked to have seen hard armor. That's probably my only gripe. The warranty and 100% satisfaction guarantee is a big plus. Honestly for [$] its hard to beat. Good quality for the price.

PROS: Good Ventilation, price, Comfort, No overuse of branding, 5 year warranty, Quality, Fit

CONS: Soft Armor

BEST USES: First time riders, Commuting, Street use

Initial Use In Cool Weather -- Great!
I pulled the armor out of the jacket and it is XY armor marked EN-1621 certified and made by a Chinese Co. named QingDao XiaoYi. Lots of faked certifications out there so I replaced the armor with D30 stuff till I can verify through the manufacture's website (they should be able to send me a link to their certificate (blank page under that link right now). The back piece is just a piece of filler foam -- not mean to wear as armor. Forget the armor though -- the jacket is great and I can tell it will keep me warm and dry. Temps were low 40F today and I was even too warm and opened the front zipper a bit.

I am a 48R jacket and usually XLg stuff in American stores fit me snug (237 lbs, 38 pants, and 5'10" -- big shoulders). Shaped like Tony on the Sopranos if you want to get a mental picture. I tried the XL jacket on in the Cycle Gear store and it fit well. Definitely not cut for Asians so NOT tight around my shoulders, etc. really a perfect fit for me.

I got the Day-Glo version and the color is that limey-yellow that sits right in the middle of the human visual spectrum peak (we see this color the best of all). It is quite obvious folks are seeing me like never before! I was riding a long and a car approaching from oncoming lanes to make a turn to their left (across my path) and I was watching for that. That driver spotted me very early and chose not to risk turning in front of me even though they had plenty of time. I cruised through at a slow rate and they continued rolling forward ultimately missing their turn and continuing forward even though they had their turn signals on to make the turn.

I know folks have issues judging the distance and speed of motorcycles. I think they saw me very well! At dusk and dawn especially when light levels are low (and UV high) you really go light up in this jacket! Euro MAID study says it is worth about a 30% reduction in crash risk. Good!!!

Great Jacket! Great value for my wallet
This jacket is well worth the [$]. I have seen other jackets at double the price and not impressed with those. This jacket has a quality build and feel. Built in protection and looks great.

Wish I would have bought it sooner
I've always been skeptical about store brand products so this being a Bilt jacket I was apprehensive about purchasing it. I had been searching for a water proof lighter riding jacket for summer. This jacket fit the description and the price was hard to pass up. When I first wore the jacket it was about 50 degrees out and I thought since the jacket was so cheap and light that I would freeze when I got up to speed. At interstate speeds with the jacket liner in I was sweating. I've also worn the jacket on warmer days in the upper 70's to lower 80's. Without the liner and with all the vents open the airflow kept me cool. I have been very surprised with this product and I am very glad I made the purchase.

Decent jacket, nothing more
It's a decent no-frills weather-proof jacket. I've gotten higher quality new jackets for less on eBay, but since I had the opportunity to try this on in the store, it was a safe purchase. Love the weather protection and warmth. Love the stretchy panels behind the shoulders since I have a wide back. The hi vis yellowy green & black is a great look and very visable. The back pad is worthless, so I replaced it. It really could use some kind of strap or tightening snaps to keep the elbow pads in place. The neck and wrist straps are comfy and functional. The fit and comfort is what won me over. With a 41 in. chest I'm often between a Medium and a Large, but this jacket fit me great. Haven't tested it in the rain yet. Ventilation seems better than some rain proof jackets I've had, but worse than others. Not for warm weather. Great for cold weather. I recommend it.

PROS: Well Insulated, Weather Resistant, Comfortable, Abrasion Resistant

CONS: Cheap Flimsy Back Pad, Elbow Pads Swim Around, Light On Features

BEST USES: Bad Weather, Long Rides, Cold Wet Weather, Safety

Great jacket until you lowside
I loved this jacket until I lowsided. The jacket looks good. It's lighweight. It breathes well. I lowsided around 30-40mph due to gravel on the street with this jacket. Fell on my left side. My left forearm has rash down the length of it as well as the top of my left forearm. I fell right where the pad was but must've twisted out of place when I fell. It's a cheap jacket to make you feel protected but where I contacted the road I was pretty badly rashed which I find makes the jacket no longer acceptable for the street.

PROS: Comfortable, Stylish, Well Insulated, Weather Resistant

CONS: Easily Torn Through, Tears Easily, Scuffs Easily

Suprising quality from a store brand
I have now owned this jacket for almost 3 years. Here in AZ it only comes out for a few months a year, but concidering that I dont have a car, it still gets used a lot. I even went down in it once at the track. And it is still in great condition.

This jacket is warm. If you are only looking to own one jacket this is not it. You will be HOT in the summer even with no liner and all vents open. In the winter it is perfect. Swap out the liner with with a heated one (I recommend SEDICI hotwired) and ride comfortably into the 20s or leave in both and ride into the teens. Yep, I said it.

I have reservations about the waterproofness, it seems to maybe leak a little, but that was after 2 hours in a downpour. If it starts raining before you make it home from work you'll be dry. The jacket itself takes forever to dry though.

It's not too flashy but it was better than I was expecting, and it does the job great.

Nice for the $$ when on sale.
This is an OK jacket if you get it on sale, as I did. Its fairly warm, have used to about 40 degrees for short rides without the liner.
Its also pretty comfortable and fits well.
However I can see a few problems, one, the main zipper seems to snag and jamb a lot when zipping up, two, the elbow pads arent attacthed so they "float" around and usually end up near my wrists, as others have said the pad in the back seems pretty worthless.
This is my first motorcycle jacket and have been fairly happy with it, but will look more closely at the details when I purchase something less warm for the summer

PROS: Well Insulated, Comfortable, Stylish

CONS: Doesn't Breathe

As Expected
So far so good. Seems to be of decent quality, true to size for me. Liner is warm, easy to remove.

Does this jacket have a pocket for spine protector pad?
A C on Dec 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it does! Great jacket! Used it on a long trip with temperatures ranging from 105F to 35F!
Honestly, can this jacket keep you warm (enough) at 35 degrees, commuting for a half hour at 65-75 mph with just a T-shirt on underneath?
