Sizing Information

We tried on the Air Tex jackets in a size XL and Medium on our Fit Test Mannequins. Being a street style, I thought both jackets fit well. This jacket doesn’t taper a lot from chest to waist and should be an easy fit for most. The intended fit is sort of casual and comfortable. Based on what we saw, I’d advise you to buy the size you normally buy in men’s clothing. If you are sometimes between sizes, then I’d advise you to choose the smaller.

Below is AGV’s “official” size chart for textile and mesh styles and I list it just for your reference. As you can see from the chart below, the chest sizes indicated for each “alpha” size are quite large as compared to “normal” men’s sizing (by about one full size). I don’t personally think this jacket fits as large as their chart indicates. If you subtract about 2” from every chest size range listed below you’d have a pretty good estimate of how this jacket fits.

Size Chest (inches) Sleeve (inches)
Small 42 – 43 24.5
Medium 44 – 45 25
Large 46 – 47 25.5
XL 48 – 49 26
XXL 50 – 51 26.5
XXXL 52 – 53 27

Our Two Cents

This Air Tex Vented Jacket came out this season at the same time as the Blast Vented Jacket. I’ve got both on my desk right now and in comparing the two, I certainly see a styling difference but functionally and fit-wise, I’d say they are just about the same thing. This jacket looks like more of an “adventure tour” style perhaps. I guess the two darker colors give me that impression where the Blast has bright sport bike colors and also neon, but styling aside, both are pretty standard street styles if you ask me. Strangely, this jacket comes in less expensive and all things considered, that makes it a better value. At its present pricing I think it compares favorably with other mesh/textile styles out there. Of course the overall fit and finish and the materials in a price-leading jacket like this aren’t going to compare with others in the $200 to $300 range, but just for every day use, by the average street rider, I think it will do just fine. As far as functionality, allow me to save myself some typing and paste in some of the relevant comments I made on the Blast: ...I’d characterize the shoulder and elbow armor as being better than average. It is wide and soft but has good firmness to it. The back pad is just average, but you can upgrade that with the Forcefield options below if you are concerned. I personally think the Super Lite choice would be appropriate for this jacket, but either will fit the pocket in the jacket. Storage isn’t a long suit in this jacket. You do get two standard hand warmer pockets and one breast pocket for your wallet or phone, and there is also a little key pocket on the end of the left sleeve… something I haven’t seen in a while. But there are no inside pockets. The jacket has some adjustments for fit which are simple and look like they will work well. The jacket has a waterproof liner which can be used to shed some water if it rains, or to act as a wind block on cool mornings or over passes. The liner is very thin… almost see-thru in fact. The material feels strong though and it being so thin means it won’t alter the fit when used (or not). And of course it will pack away in a super small space when not used. We included shots of all these features in our photo gallery, and we also included some night shots to show the reflective piping on the jacket. That piping didn’t show up as well as we’ve seen with other brands… not sure why since it is Scotchlite according to the tags, but it may just be our photo setup. This jacket has just a bit less mesh and a little more textile in its shell, but there is certainly enough mesh for even the hottest weather. And this style has the leather (or leatherette) accents on the elbows and shoulders which adds just a bit of extra style. At this price point, I think you’ll really like this style. :: Paul, 06-06-14
