This is a really great jacket. At 6'4" and a 45 inch chest I ordered an XL, Tall, and the fit is perfect.
Features are a microfiber layer inside the neck, zippered front with top closure tab, draw belts on the sides of the waist, and velcro closures on sleeves. The arms are pre-curved and have elastic panels on the inside of the sleeve, towards the body. There are zippered vents at wrist, bicep, shoulder, waist, and back (kidney) areas. The jacket includes a 100 gram polyfill liner that zips out.
Protection includes pads on the upper and lower back, and on the shoulders. Micorfiber and foam lined hard shell protection in the elbows and shoulders, with an additional foam insert on the lower back. The lower back foam insert and shoulder inserts are removable. I could not find a way to remove the elbow pads before washing.
The jacket is a good, heavy weight denim, with good coloring (I bought the BLUE), with heavy brass zippers. The jacket is lined with a black nylon mesh and allows for great air flow. In the tail of the jacket is a zipper for connecting to riding pants, and when the pants are not attached you have a piece of cloth to zip in so that the zipper is not cutting items or being damaged from being sat upon.
Drawbacks are that the jacket is very heavy compared to nylon jackets, but that is not a real problem when riding. The other issue is that there are no reflective stripes on the back or sides. I fixed this with American Flag patches from Nightfire Patches (not available on Amazon)on the back and sleeves.
All in all this is a great jacket and a great alternative to leather in the heat.
The jacket came earlier than I expected which was a pleasent surprise. Looking over the jacket I was impressed by the workmanship. After trying it on it fit just as expected. It was surprisingly comfortable and lightweigth. I wore it on a chilly day around 55 degrees and it kept me pretty warm. I look forward to taking the liner out and wear it on a warmer day. Overall it was one of the better purchases I have made. Tourmaster/Cortech makes an outstanding product.
I normally wear a medium but I had to go to a large due to the quilted liner. Even with the large you would not be able to wear a sweater under, but the fit is perfect. Great jacket at any price and cool look. This comes from a 50 year old NINJA rider.
