Shawn Woodwrote a review of Holden Moto Jacket - Men's on January 26, 2015
Familiarity: I've used it several times
So I actually came across this jacket by mistake. It was given to me by someone because it didn't fit them. So before getting this jacket I had not even really heard of Holden and had no idea if they make good stuff or not. My initial impressions were that the jacket fits a bit bigger than I am used to. I am 6' 170lbs and a medium felt more like a large to me. I suspect that is because I usually wear slim fitting techy jackets and this is meant to fit a little more like the typical snowboarder would like. A medium fits my exactly like shown in the product photo so I guess that's the way it's meant to fit. As a snowboarding jacket, I love how it fits, very comfortable, looks cool. As a piece of gear, I love it, for a more fashionable jacket it actually has quite a bit of good tech features. It has full pit zips with mesh to keep the snow out which I have never seen before, very cool. It is super water proof, I held a sleeve under running water for a full 30 seconds, not a drop penetrated the fabric. The hood fits nicely which is important to me. One of my biggest annoyances with most hooded jackets is ill fitting hoods. It is not an issue with this jacket. The neck is real soft and comfy, my skin is pretty sensitive and jackets usually chafe the crap out of my neck and chin, not a problem with this. This is not the warmest jacket I own, really just a heavy shell, on warm days it's great by itself, on a really cold day I'd either wear a real warm jacket underneath or wear a different one all together.
