Disappointed
I really wanted to like this jacket. I was looking for a retro-styled summer jacket and the sale price on this blew away the other alternatives I looked at. At first glance, the jacket looks nice. It is stylish and seems reasonably well constructed for the price.

But after wearing it, I'm very disappointed. The biggest problem is the fit. It's just...off. It is narrow in the shoulders and absolutely huge around the gut. To make things worse, there is no waistband adjustment whatsoever. I'm 6'0" 170lbs, athletic build, and my size 42 seems like it would fit me better if I were 5'8" and 220lbs. The jacket is also cut very short, even compared to other sport-cut jackets I own. The result of all this is a jacket that sort of "billows" out at the bottom while being worn and rides up your back on the bike.

A couple other minor complaints: the liner is not full sleeve (this is definitely a summer-only jacket). Also, as other reviewers have said, the zipper is backwards, which isn't a deal-breaker, but is odd and a bit annoying. Finally, I was a little disappointed with an overall feeling of flimsiness to the leather. I guess that's to be expected from the price point, but it doesn't compare to even my similarly priced Cortech.

All in all, I'm disappointed and would return this if I hadn't already worn it riding. Certainly not recommended for anyone with a slim or athletic body type.

Best Jacket I've owned
I just recently completed a 7-day, 2300 mile ride after buying this jacket to replace my Tourmaster leather jacket. This built jacket saved my bacon when temps got up to 100 deg F. I could feel the air flow through the vented leather. Later in the ride it got down to 32 deg F. and with the liner in and my heated vest on I was comfortable. The jacket also fits better than any I have owned, and the leather seems softer and more supple than others. The only real complaint I have is that the shoulder and elbow armor is not hard shelled. It is advertised as CE rated, but I thought CE armor had to have a hard shell. I fixed this by replacing the elbow and shoulder armor with the ones from my Tourmaster jacket that have the CE tag on them. I just threw away the back pad and don't use one.

PROS: Comfortable, Stylish, Abrasion Resistant

Comfortable Jacket
I've only put a few hundred miles in this jacket, but I feel that it is enough to give a decent review. The fit is pretty good. I am a 42 suit jacket size (5'9" 180lbs athletic build) and ended up getting a 46 to fit some layers under. The 44 fit perfectly, but the need for layers trumped the perfect fit. With that said, the 46 still fits great. The jacket is very comfortable and I am able to stay warm in high 40- low 50 weather with the quilted vest insert and just a t-shirt. With layers I think I would do fine in the 30s. However, I am in San Diego so I ride without the insert most of the time and I am quite comfortable into the high 80s and I don't think it would be bad even in the upper 90s. I would just open the zippers up a bit. Made in Pakistan if that makes a difference to you.

Cons:
-The zipper is on the opposite side. Not a deal breaker by any means, but it still drives me a bit crazy.
-No waist straps to cinch down to help tailor the fit a bit.
-No way of venting other than unzipping a little bit.

Very comfortable good-looking jacket with a few minor flaws. I am happy with my purchase.

Comfortable Jacket
Picked up this jacket for [$]. It is very comfortable with a no nonsense classic look. Liner keeps you warm during those early morning rides but the leather is vented so it doesn't get too hot while sitting in traffic.

Great jacket for a great price!
This is a great daily ride jacket. It has the comfort and look of a cruiser but it also has the safety armor of a sport bike jacket. I have always been told to dress for the wreck not the ride and with this jacket I don't mind!

Comfortable, affordable, & stylish
Love the jacket. Great summer jacket but if you plan to use in winter then add an extra layer inside due to the perforated leather.

great Jacket
Great Jacket. Comfort and Style, can use at night or day, handles normal cool nights and warm days well. However it's a bit hot for hot summer days, and a bit too cold for cold nights/days. It's a great all around jacket, that I can use for about 80% of the time in S. Cal.

Very satisified
I actually initially bought this jacket at full price at their new Cherry Hill store. I needed a legit riding jacket. One that had nice looks, leather, resists wind buffeting, and just goes with the style of my Stryker.
I was happy with the quality, fit and function. But then I saw 3 weeks later in their circular this exact jacket was on sale for 40% off! I called the store and they said no problem, bring it in and we'll do a return/exchange and refund the difference! I was really impressed with their enthusiasm to make a customer happy.

PROS: Slick, Comfy, Comfortable, Stylish, Decent Warmth
