    Excellent Jacket, January 1, 2012

    This is my first riding jacket, I am a new rider and intend on using this jacket daily. So far I am very satisfied with this jacket, it is very warm with the liner in and when removed its subdue warm enough in 50 degree weather. The jacket also offers excellent protection and had removable shoulder pads if you feel they are to bulky. The outer pads are not removeable. The vents work fantastic in warm weather, I thought I was gonna burn up in it when I rode in 70 plus weather but with all six vents opened up I hardly broke a sweat. Overall I’m very satisfied with this jacket and would recommend to other riders.

    Fantastic jacket, fantastic price, fantastic value, January 5, 2014
    By 

    First of all I’ll tell you that I ordered all of my gear in one day and this came the fastest along with the pants I separately ordered out of all of it which was my helmet gloves ext. (3 days ordinary shipping) which I ordered through leather up because at the time it was just 10$ cheaper. And if it doesn’t come in that time you’ll be okay cause it’s not the end of the world. And normally if you order it through their website you can get free shipping with 100$ over and other things like tha.

    The jacket:
    The shoulder armor is thick like a strong plastic
    The elbows do slip out of place but once you’re in the jacket and adjust them then it stays in place
    All the zippers are thick and never bump and seem very lasting
    The back pad is a foam which won’t completely protect you from impact at high speeds but will do just fine against road rash
    There is a zip section at the rear end of your jacket that can attach which the xelement pants which I highly recommend or any other pair of pants
    The ventilation is fantastic and with the liner out it will breathe exact on hot days
    It feels thick to the touch and fantastic in quality

    Sizing: I am a small guy 140 and about 5’9″ and 19 years ancient

    I got a ordinary when I’m normally a small and it fits fantastic and I can fit a hoodie underneath it on cold days or without one and it subdue fits fine
    The arms are long and go just past my wrist and will go excellent with long or small gloves
    You can adjust the waist of your jacket that way it fits tightly allowing no cold air to get in
    There are wrist adjusters in which you can make them tight or loose
    Go a size up if you are going to wear a hoodie or a lot of clothing underneath if not I’m pretty sure it is right to size
    I have a very wide swimmers back and it can be a snug fit nearly the back when on the bike buts it’s comfortable
    The neck strap fits excellent

    Cons:
    There isn’t as much insightful but you can sow some on or use the insightful tape or wear a high vise over it but that’s not really a huge issue for me
    Other than that I can’t really reckon of whatever thing it’s a fantastic jacket.
    Also for the people who nag about looks, it does look fantastic while your on the bike and that is the purpose of the jacket for bike riding, so you won’t be wearing it to your next speedo competition and you don’t really need to wear it all day nearly the mall, so don’t nag about wearing it all day and bash on this fantastic product

    Five stars fantastic jacket you can’t go incorrect with.

    Fantastic buy, Development 15, 2012

    This review is from: Xelement CF-624 Mens Black/Grey/Light Grey Armored Race Textile Jacket – 5X-Generous
    I would first like to thank Leather up for being a top of the line, world class company. Original order came in 6 days after buy but it was the incorrect size. I contacted Leather up and they immediately apologized for the inconvenience, paid for the return shipping and had my new jacket out to me in a matter of days. They also kept in contact to ensure that I was kept in the loop through the whole process. The jacket itself is of excellent quality and well made. I had it on this morning at 62 degrees and I was very comfortable and warm. Rode home in 82 degree weather and the vents worked just fine. I removed the liner and it is exact! Extra padding makes me feel safe while riding. Thank you Leather up…I will certainly be purchasing from you guys again in the future!!
