Looks better in person!
Jacket is made of heavy grade supple leather with quality zippers. It does run about a size small. It has a Euro cut with a slight "V" taper from shoulders to waist and cinch snaps at the sides for a custom fit. Gussets at the back shoulders make for an easy reach to the bars. It flows a lot of air through the perforated leather placed in the inside arms and side body of jacket. Would like to have had a full liner instead of vest to extend the riding season with jacket alone. Armor is CE rated at the elbows and shoulder, but the foam back insert needs swapped for better protection. Light cushioned area sewn in at the tailbone. Originally purchased the Sedici Vito online, but returned to store due to size. Crew at the Raleigh, NC store were pleasant and helpful. Had no intention of walking out with the Francesco instead, but it seemed to fit a little longer than the Vito and looked more classic than cafe racer. Ridden comfortably on both a standard and sport bike, with no notable jacket ride up or reach issues. Great leather jacket for a fraction of the cost of the big names.

Great style and protection for the money
This jacket is killer and really stands out with vintage styling. I bought the brown version because I already have a similar black jacket. It is quite heavy with the back armor in. Like really heavy, but it feels really sturdy and snug. The airflow on the arms almost makes it feel like you are riding with a short sleeve shirt on a cool night. Perfect for LA but I would not recommend for a colder climate without another layer underneath.

Great Value but small
I had to get a 3X to fit. Normally I'm just XL. Everything about it is great except that is would be nice to have an inside pocket without the liner.

My favorite jacket
So I had to give this jacket a lot of thought and put it through its paces on a relatively short 300 mile trip round Colorado recently. I own quite a few pieces of gear, all for different purposes & materials, ranging from RSD to Highway 21. Let's start with my main reason for giving this a high rating.

The Fit

We're all built differently, and I stand 5'7, large shouldered, 33" waist and about 185-190lbs. I prefer my jackets semi-fitted and V-shaped than American cut. This jacket is spot on for me, and the only one that fits just as well is my RSD Kent waxed cotton jacket. It's a little longer than a sports cut so no riding up, and the arms are a perfect length without bunching around the elbows when relaxed. It's fitting, but I can still put a light hoody underneath it when it turns cold. I noticed in the few videos I saw that if you're skinnier shouldered, it drapes a little and looks unsightly; if you're near a store I'd definitely try it out before buying.

The Look

I'll admit it, I love the look of this jacket. I purchased the dark brown and glad I did - it;s more chocolate than mahogany, but pairs well with my other gear. The quilted shoulders is classy and tasteful, and though I wish the logo were smaller, it's not really noticeable. The look straddles vintage and street, so would look equally comfortable on a Harley or a Bonneville (I have the latter).

Leather & Armor

So a big fan of the top grain and semi-aniline look. It smells like leather, is a little rugged and will scuff up/sheen over time as it breaks in. The jacket came with elbow and shoulder pads that are noticeable from the outside, but not by much. And the cheaper-than-other-name brands Sedici Lvl2 back protector I purchased fits perfectly. Overall, it's a good fit in the pockets and doesn't impede movement.

Features

Ok, so this is where the scores start averaging out. This jacket isn't feature-rich. It's probably on par with most jackets out there at this price point. One disappointing thing is that, though the perforation is welcome, I'd rather the inner liner be full sleeve so that if it does become cold, it covers up your arms. I found this out the hard way riding through the mountains in CO - warm body, absolutely freezing arms. Also, it would have been great to have some reflective piping on the back, just as an added safety feature.

Also, the windflap behind the zip is made of a poly (?) material. It would have been a really nice touch to have this from leather too.

Price

I got this on a Labor Day sale, saving 25%. At the price I paid I'd say this was really good value, but at normal retail there's quite a few options out there that could compete and probably beat this feature vs feature. As this is an in-house brand for Cycle Gear I'd suggest that a slightly lower price point would really sway a consumer's choice when comparing to others like Oxford, AGV, etc.

So why 4 stars?

The categories above would average out to around 3/3.5 usually for me. Fit is a subjective thing so I can't really score it highly for everyone. However, the guys at the Lakewood store are a gem - I went through 4 different jackets which they pulled from all over the country to get me 'the one'. As with all leather, there's differences in how they're cut and how it sits on the body, and also how the lining is sewed. As I have so many jackets already I really wanted to be sure, and the guys there really delivered in that respect. I'm really impressed by their return policy too, where you can return something even AFTER you've used it. I don't think anybody offers that.

So all in all, I've had a really good experience with this jacket, and it's now my no.1. Kudos to the Lakewood store too.

I am looking to put a CE rated spine protected in this jacket. Are their any that anyone can recommend that fit nicely? Thank you.

BEST ANSWER: Yes, Sedici sells a Lvl2 back protector that fits perfectly. And a lot cheaper than big name brands.
