    runs small but nice, June 19, 2014

    As a lot of the reviews for this item say it runs SMALL! I am usually a L sometimes an XL and I went ahead and ordered the 2XL (as per the sizing chart they have on the website). I would prefer a small more room, it fits more like a habitual L would fit which is annoying for anyone larger than I because I doubt this would fit them. The monkey paws are a small small on me but fit, I can just see it wearing on the spot between my thumb and index finger with more wear time. I have a long trunk and ride a street bike so I was worried about the back riding up and screening off my back but it stayed pretty well down. I reckon I would like it a bit longer but this is a common problem for me that may not be an issue for others. It is really breathable and you can feel the air circulating when riding so certainly not for any cold weather but that is exactly why I got it for warm weather riding. The hood is also small so your forehead (or bangs in my case) are not covered but again warmer weather riding. I like the removable pads so it makes it simpler to wash. Not sure exactly how it would do in a spill and hopefully won’t have to find out but seems sturdy enough, surpass than no protection at all. The padding makes the sweatshirt pretty heavy which makes sense but not something I really thought about when purchasing it. This makes carrying it (not wearing it) a small trying to maneuver. Overall I really like it but I reckon there are certainly some things they can improve upon. It seemed like a lot of reviews were from guys who bought it for their significant other and don’t know all the things women can look for in clothing so hopefully this is a more comprehensive review from a girls point of view.

    ***Updated***
    So I was really in a minor accident in the last few weeks while wearing this jacket. The jacket did a decent job of protection except one major design flaw. The sleeve pulled up and my forearm got some major road rash in the process. The jacket has some holes in it elsewhere but held up and I got no hurt to my actual body except the sleeve issue. I reckon they need to rethink how to keep those sleeves down when an accident occurs. I am not sure if wearing the monkey paws would have beneficial since they don’t fit under gloves very well and the force could have ripped sterile off or done some hurt to the thumb joint. Just some updated thoughts.

    My wife likes this jacket! Exact fit and protection! Would recommend this manufacture. We looked all over for a jacket that was light but would provide protection and this fit the bill perfectly.

    The Wife loved it- nice style not too much but it was surpass than plane black or some idiotic assed giant logo thing. Excellent quality- nice fit.
