Excellent jacket for the price. I only have owned one other mesh jacket to compare it to: the Joe Rocket Phoenix 4.0. The Phoenix doesn't come in dayglo, which was very important to me (I like the idea of being seen by other motorists), so I gave this jacket a shot. I really like it, although there are a few things I think could be improved: 1.) When the zip-in liner is installed, you can't access the inside pockets. 2.) The liner itself is very flimsy (compared to the JR Phoenix). It's ok on warm days and evenings, but in chilly weather, you'd better pack a sweatshirt. 3.) None of the pockets are waterproof. These relatively small things aside, the jacket looks and feels great. The armor is comfortable. I'd definitely recommend for warm, sunny riding. Pack your rain gear and a sweatshirt, though! *Thanks to my half-buddy Ted for modeling my jacket.
