Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stylish, warm and tight The jacket looks great. With the liner under it, pretty much like a winter jacket, snowboarder style. I got the blue one and the color is stunning without being flashy. The liner and meshed armor are removable and it is easy to do so. The armor looks good but I've thankfully didn't test it so far. I rode at freezing temperature on the highway with only a t-shirt under for 30 minutes and didn't feel the littlest bit cold anywhere on the upper body. The coat fits a bit small. I took size M, I'm 5'8" and 182lbs. If you have a good gut, you might have some problem zipping it up. Also, it feels really tight under the arms. I'm not particularly wide at the shoulders so it could become a serious issue for some people. I only tested the water resistance under light rain but the water was beading on it rather that spreading so I take that as a good sign. All in all, I'd say that it's worthwhile to take a look at different options that are out there, particularly for the price point, but I'm generally happy with my purchase so far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Winter Jacket for the City This jacket is almost perfect for around town riding in the winter, possibly spring/fall too. Its got 3 layers an outer waterproof layer, an armour layer and an insulation layer. All can be separated. Warm to -5 at least (Vancouver). Armour layer can be removed turning the jacket into casual wear. The sizing chart is wrong. Sleeves are quite narrow. I am 6'4" 200lbs. I wear a size 56 A* leather jacket. For this jacket I had to get a 2xl (fits well) fits tightish. I have thin arms btw. Got the blue, logos are actually black (better imo). Could use a bit more velcro around the wrists. The collar is large and can interfere with the helmet with the hood folded up. Its not too bad and workable, at least for me. No belt connection straps but jacket is longish and tight so probably ok for lower speeds.
