You can consult sizing information from FirstGear to choose a size based upon your height and weight and also considering the sizes you normally wear in men’s clothing. This style is one of the few leather “sport” styles by FirstGear and it’s cut smaller and tighter than most styles. I’d say the fit is about 1/2 size smaller than you might expect, so if you are between sizes or prefer a loose fit, you’d definitely want to choose one size larger (or at least the larger of the two if between sizes). Tall sizes: FirstGear offers this jacket in talls, which provides a rarely found option for tall people. The body and sleeves of the jackets are 1 1/2 to 2 inches taller than the “standard” cut jackets. If you normally have to buy “talls” then these should work for you.
Our Two Cents
The Hammer is an all-leather sport jacket for street riders. The jacket has perforated panels built into the front and back of the torso and also on a portion of the sleeve. These perforated panels should do a pretty good job at keeping you cool in warm weather. The jacket also includes a vest-type thermal liner which will provide some warmth in the winter, but since the shell is perforated, it won’t be able to block air flow through the shell, so consider this model for cooler to hot weather, but not for cold weather. A turtle shell CE armor is provided for the shoulders and elbows and a foam back pad is included. Take the “View Larger Pictures” link above to see this jacket’s features in good close-up pictures. Please note: the pictures of the red/black jacket taken in our offices to show this jacket’s features makes it look like the accent color is orange, but actually all those accent pieces are Honda red. Silver and red on the same jacket drives our camera crazy!
