Sizing Information

We tried the size Medium in this jacket on Huey and we put an XL jacket on Dewey. These are the sizes they normally wear and both fit very well. The jackets are a bit roomy as compared to many other sport styles, so if you are sometimes between sizes, choose the smaller. Otherwise just choose the size your normally wear.

The chart provided by Speed and Strength shows chest sizes for each alpha size that are about a half size larger than what you’d normally see for “standard” conversion from chest size to alpha size (example: an XL jacket is usually listed as a 46 max chest). Considering my comments about how the jackets fit a bit roomy, I’d consider this chart to be accurate.

Size Small Medium Large XL 2XL 3XL
Chest 38-40 40-42 42-45 46-48 49-52 53-56
Sleeve 33 34 35 1/2 36 1/2 37 37 1/2

Our Two Cents

Wow, here’s a nice closeout deal! This is a fairly recent model by Speed and Strength that has been marked down as a closeout now. :: Paul, 02-08-14

I really like this style. Here are my previous comments on it: The Trial By Fire mesh jacket is made for hot weather use. All areas but the shoulders and a bit down the sides of the torso are a full mesh jacket which will allow the air to blow right through. A design like this is welcome in really hot weather. It’s my opinion that a full mesh jacket like this is even more comfortable than no jacket at all because it will keep the sun off and cut down on windburn (a problem in low humidity/hot weather). The overall styling is sharp and the construction quality is very good. We’ve taken some good photos of the jacket’s features that you can view by clicking the “View Larger Images” link above. All the usual suspects are there. The one strange thing about this jacket is the removable liner. It is a VERY thin stretchy fleece material. It is not windproof or waterproof (which is common in full mesh designs, and it is not nearly thin enough to provide insulation. What’s it for? I dunno…. oh well, if you are buying a jacket like this for very hot weather, I doubt you’ll care or use it anyway :) Overall, I really like the style… particularly in the Hi Viz color. :: Paul, 04-24-12

I had ordered a couple of jackets before this one, and had to return both of them. When I got this one in the mail, I tried it on, and instantly knew this is the one I am not returning! Fist ride on the bike, and it felt better from the start, plenty of airflow, almost like not wearing a jacket at all. (Read more...)

Jacket feels great, nice fit but a tiny bit smaller than my textile SS jacket. Mesh is extremely breathable and allows tons of airflow. I'm actually cooler wearing this while riding as compared to just wearing a t shirt and I'm protected better.... (Read more...)
