Looks and fits well, very functional, but definitely not for lower than 45°f
For starters you get what you pay for. That is by no means however a bad remark. I was very pleased with the fit of the jacket right out of the box. I'm a pretty slim and athletic guy, 154 lb, 5'6" and this jacket fit me better than all the ones I tried on.

I think it could use a better interior storage pocket, but that would be impeded by the removable sweater. It's not a big deal for me though, as most of my small-carry items fit in the other 4 external pockets.

I got this jacket hoping to stay warm during the colder Tampa, Florida weather, which for those of you who aren't accustomed, it does hit 20s and 30s from time to time.
Now, for 55°+ I've found just the jacket will do, even for extended riding. As it got up to 75°-80° I found the 2 bicep and 2 kidney vents did offer some good air flow, although not a tremendous amount of air to the underarm (bearable though).
From 45°-55° I did however find it necessary to wear the sweater (which does zip in and out very easily). At that temperature, I did find it necessary to wear a face mask to seal between my jacket and full-face helmet.
The coldest I've experienced thusfar was 37°. My total trip was about an hour. I had to stop every 15-20 minutes just to get the cold air out of the jacket. It didn't help my body temp that I was not well insulated and/or sealed at the foot or wrist area, but my chest was definitely feeling the stagnant chill. I think think this comes from the compromise of using the canvas-material everywhere besides the outer arms which are leather. The cold really did penetrate through the chest the way that thick leather would not allow. There are also a few perforations in the shoulder that did not help either.

The only main gripes I have are that (1) at the bottom of the sweater, there is a lot of loose material, and because the belt I usually wear is a Snap On with velcro adjustment, the "hook" of the belt pulls a lot of string from the sweater. Easily solved by just leaving the belt in my bag until I get to work. (2) The cuff of the sweater is also pretty snug, and although I don't have particularly large hands or wrists it is difficult to pass my hand through.

I'm also not convinced that the hanger loop to hang the jacket is tough enough to support the weight considering I hang the jacket up in a locker for 1.5hra 5-6 times a week.

Ultimately, I'm very happy with the jacket. I was looking to spend up to $500 for a full-leather jacket but couldn't compromise comfort. For what it costs, this jacket really fits the bill. Just don't plan on this being your go-to jacket for mkre than 20 minutea of the temperature is lower than 45°
