My first thought when opening the package was how light the jacket was. I thought there is no way this will be warm enough. I am happy to say I was wrong. I live in the south and ride my sport bike year round. I received my jacket just in time for our first cold snap ( high 30’s-low 40’s) I know to some this will not seem cold but when you are traveling at 70 mph it feels much colder. This jacket was very warm and did a great job. It is a perfect fit. I got the large and I am 6’ and 175lbs. The collar comes up just far enough to keep the wind of my neck and the jacket is long enough to keep the wind off my lower back. It is not noisy as some jackets flap in the wind. I am so happy with this purchase. It is the best cold weather riding jacket I’ve had, and I’ve had them all. I just wanted to pass this info along to any motorcyclist wondering which jacket to get. Stay safe and warm.
Very good shopping
It's too warm and so light.I love it
