Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Jacket, Armor Will Need Upgrade I purchased this jacket a month ago from Canada's Motorcycle.ca to upgrade from my jacket of similar style and have ridden over 1,000km with it. I have ridden this jacket in weather ranging from -6 C to 25 C. I was looking for a jacket with this style with armor and a removable liner, which seems to be almost impossible for whatever reason. This is one of only two jackets in this style that I was able to find with armor. (The other one was more expensive and no back armor). In colder weather this jacket works great. The collar can be folded up and zipped up all the way. With all the vents closed, gauntlets, proper riding pants and the addition of a snowboarding bandana/scarf, I was perfectly comfortable. This jacket impressed me most in warmer temperatures. A common problem I had with my previous jacket of this style, is when you reach freeway speeds (100km/h) with the collar open, the jacket will act like a sail ride up and put pressure in the armpit area which cuts circulation. After a few minutes this would start causing numbness in my hands. The venting in the back of this jacket completely eliminated that issue!! With all the vents open and the collar down, the airflow almost feels like I'm not wearing a jacket. I have yet to wear this jacket in weather warm enough to warrant taking out the liner, but I'm not worried in the slightest about it being cool enough. The only area I was not completely satisfied is the stock foam armor the jacket came with. I will be upgrading it to either Forcefeild armor or D30. (To use the D30 will require modification to the size of the armor pockets, but I don't mind putting the time in to get what I want) I don't really mind this aspect, because the low price reflects the armor quality and adding the pockets to an existing jacket is a major pain. I have a 41" chest and ordered a size 42. Fits slightly big, which is to be expected. I would recommend this jacket and would give a rating of 4.5 stars out of 5 if possible due to the armor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket I bought this jacket a few years back before I had discovered Canada's motorcycle so unfortunately I did not purchase it from them (and most likely overpaid for it because of that). The quality of the jacket is superb (heavy!), the leather is nice and thick, the removable liner keeps me warm in the colder months, the ventilation for the summer is good. I bought this jacket because of the armour protection it offers in case of an accident.. I have read other reviews saying the armour doesn't quite fit right but I find it fits just fine and comfortable. I am very happy I bought the caliber model. The style is nice and retro and compliments my bell custom 500 very nicely.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Totally pleased! The only drawback is that the padding in the shoulders could be preformed a little better. The flat foam with slits cut in it is a little hard on the shoulders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Jacket I didn't like the armour that it came with, so that the was the first to go. Now it feels great, my son likes the vented back he puts his hands in it to keep them warm
