Sizing Information

You’ll have to be careful in choosing a size in this jacket. We used Huey and Dewey, our 42 and 46 size Fit Test mannequins to check out sizing. We were just barely able to get the jackets on and zip them. Now granted, a sport/race jacket like this is supposed to fit darn near skin tight, but even still, it is our opinion that you’d have to pick one size larger than normal for a reasonably comfortable fit. I confirmed this with a tape on the two test jackets. I measure a 44 chest and 40 waist/belly on the size 46 jacket and a 40 chest and a 36 waist/belly on the size 42 jacket.

If you compare my chest measurements to the AGV chart below, they are just about one size smaller than the published chart. AGV includes a “waist” size in their chart. I’ve always thought a “max belly” indication is more appropriate since the bottom part of a sport jacket fits more around your lower belly rather than your waist where your jeans ride. Anyway, the max belly for this sport cut jacket is about 4” less than the measured chest (as in my examples above).

Just for your reference I’m including AGV’s chart, but it really isn’t correct for either chest for belly. The best we can do is say that the jackets run about one size smaller in the chest than this chart would indicate and the max belly for any given size is about 4” less than the ACTUAL chest size. For example, a 46 jacket measures and fits about like a 44 jacket in the chest and the max belly for that size would be about 40.

AGV’s Chart (which is incorrect):

Size Chest (inches) Waist (inches) Sleeve (inches)
40 40 – 41 30 – 32 24.5
42 42 – 43 32 – 34 25
44 44 – 45 34 – 36 25.5
46 45 – 47 36 – 38.5 25.5
48 47 – 48.5 38.5 – 41 26
50 49 – 50 40 – 43 26.5
52 50 – 52 42 – 45 26.5

Our Two Cents

I can recall reviewing the similar Photon jacket from AGV Sport just about two years ago. I found some issues with material quality and fit issue, but overall thought it was a passable value based on its $269 price tag. Now, along comes the GP Corsa jacket for 2014 and I really don’t see much difference, but in the $350 price range, I’m less comfortable with the shortcomings. Overall, the leather, armor and basic construction looks good. And the jacket is perforated in front and on part of the back which is almost universally welcome in a heavy leather jacket. The jacket has nice neoprene trim around the neck and has some nice integral external armor to beef up the crash protection. But here are the issues…. the jacket has a somewhat strange fit. It is a tight sport fit, which I’ve described above, but beyond that, the materials and how they come together in the arm pit are sort of awkward. The underarms are cut very high and tight, but the lower parts of the sleeves are cut rather larger… so large in fact, I think you’d have trouble getting the gauntlet of a sport glove over the sleeve ends without folding some material over. And I’ll also have to call out the thermal liner design. The material is sort of cheesy feeling and there is virtually no insulation. The jacket has a couple nice pockets sewn to the jacket liner, but when you put the liner in, you can’t reach them and there is only one pocket on the liner itself… a shortcoming that shouldn’t be there. I’ve tried to see the best in this style, but I think it just has a lot of issues. :: Paul, 06-04-14 (more about less-than-favorable reviews)
