The sizing on this jacket is comparable to other “alpha” sized jackets and is also in line with men’s clothing sizes, so choose the size you normally wear in jackets and shirts. If you want to double check sizing using a tape measure, refer to the chart below. Tall sizes are 1 1/2 to 2 inches longer in both body length and sleeve length. If you normally buy tall sizes in men’s clothing, these should work better for you.

Our Two Cents
Just a few of this closeout group remains. Grab one while there are a few left… if the size is right! Here is our previous product review: In looking over the Scorpion Master jacket, I was impressed mostly by its ruggedness. Just about everything about this jacket is heavy duty. Those who ride long distances in the summer will love it. And it would be especially good for those who do some dual sport riding (combined street and dirt touring). About 50% or more of the shell of the jacket is a loose weave mesh material that should allow the wind to blow right through making this jacket great for hot weather. But for cooler or wet weather, there is a full sleeve removable rain liner. And being a longer, “3/4” length jacket, the liner is also a little longer and will provide better protection from rain than shorter sport styles. And touring riders love pockets! And this jacket has plenty. There are four on front along with a generous fanny pack and a huge pocket on the upper portion of the back. The two lower pockets in front and the fanny pack have a zipper closure that sort of folds over to help keep rain out.
The large pocket on the back has a grommet to pass through ear phone wires maybe? Not sure. Anyway… tons of storage. The jacket has very nice energy absorbing armor that is light weight and also perforated. You also get a foam back pad (nothing remarkable though). The sleeve adjustment straps and adjusters on the side of the waist are very sturdy and functional. They look pretty cool too. I could go on and on about all the little features and design queues, but take the “View Larger Pictures” link above to see some good closeup photos. I don’t see how you could be disappointed in this product.
Customer Shawn adds: In the description, the author mentions a grommet in the back of the jacket for headphones to come through. That grommet is actually for the tube of a hydration pack that can be put in the back. If you look inside that back pocket, there is a slit in the upper part of the mesh pocket which provides access to the plastic grommet on the outside of the jacket. That way the tube can be snaked through the slit, through the plastic grommet, and over the shoulder without having to be taken out through the zipper at the top of the pocket. There’s then a clip on the right shoulder for clipping the tube to to hold it in place. I haven’t used it yet, but I think that kind of attention to detail is evident in the design of the whole jacket.
All-in-all, it’s a great jacket and works perfectly in the warm weather. Shawn, 05-22-12
