Over the years I have owned many styles and types of jackets. This jacket is the best of all of them in one package. It blends in, going around town it doesn't broadcast as a motorcycle jacket. The design with the protection is brilliant, everything is very functional. For size I ordered a medium at 5'11'' 175lbs athletic build it was just too small in the arms and the chest felt crowded. So I returned for a large. The fit was perfect! I've owned this jacket for nearly over a year and 6 months and after riding over 6k road miles in all weather types it's still holding up like new. I love this jacket so much that I will buy a 2nd if they ever go on sale.
