Even with the abundance of airflow venting ... I just get too hot. But then I'm a hoodie & vest rider in 60'ish temps, so take my opinion with that factored in.
The jacket is heavy, but not bulky. It bends & gives in all the right places for my frame (5'11"; 225lb - 36"/waist; 48"/chest). The XXL is a perfect fit in sleeve, waist and shoulder-to-butt length.
Wearing it with a thermal body layer and heavy material long sleeve shirt (flannel or heavy denim), there is "enough" room to be comfortable and bendable. But I really didn't need those baselayers for very comfortable 50 degree riding (highway/80mph+).
Rain/wet protection is superior. Nothing got inside .. I mean NOTHING, in an hour long highway sprint in a mostly medium, but at times heavy rain.
Note: Heavy rain means highway speeds are down to max/40mph or less for cages (at least the sane drivers). Motorcycle owners (vs. riders ... if you have to ask ... you're an owner) typically pull over until heavy rain subsides.
I've tried outfitting in textiles at various times, from the high $$ to the "high tech" to the too-cool-not-to-have jackets. They all had feature quirks or fitment problems.
These Olympia Ranger (men and women) makes me question whether I'll ever put on my leather uppers again. Well, except my/our vests. Won't be patching-up the Ranger ... LOL.
The only down side of the jacket (for me) are the inside pockets, well pocket (thermal liner). It's on the left side, which is good. But its shape and size prevent it from being used for CCW.
I've only got 30/days (maybe 750mi) on the jacket ... so it's lasting durability I can't offer any experience with. But comparing the Ranger's workmanship from other "in class" jackets, I'd say this one has many years and miles ahead of it.
P.S. .... We ride a Harley.
