Overall, I'm very impressed with this jacket. It's a great value at $289. Construction, appearance, attention to detail are all excellent. I rode my Speed Triple for an hour today in 45 degree weather with light rain. Jacket was completely waterproof. I wear a heated jacket liner, so I can't comment on the warmth of the insulation. The collar is very comfortable and provides excellent protection from wind and rain. The material seems very lightweight which makes it very comfortable, but I'm not sure how much abrasion protection it provides. Elbow and should armor is high quality, but unusually small. I also purchased the Taichi back protector insert which is a perfect fit for the jacket and appears to offer excellent protection. Sizing is... interesting. Follow the size chart and hope for the best. I purchased this jacket in XXL which says 52 euro inside the jacket. It's a good fit but very big for a 52 euro size. I may have been able to wear an XL, but I'm happy enough with the XXL and didn't want to bother shipping it back . For comparison, I wear a large in Vanson and a 54 or 56 in Dainese depending if I want to have room to layer under the jacket. Overall very happy with the jacket.
