Our staff tried on a few different sizes of this Solar 2 jacket and we found a good fit in the size we usually wear in men’s clothing. We found the fit to be pretty snug in our normal size which would be ideal for wearing under motorcycling jackets. For that purpose ,we recommend you buy the size you normally wear in men’s clothing. If you think you’ll want to wear this jacket for casual use (not under a motorcycle jacket), then one size larger would be the best bet.
Our Two Cents
The Solar 2 jacket is a premium version of the Core jacket (see link below). The Core has basic materials for the insulation and shell and the Solar has the premium PrimaLoft Gold insulation. It feels softer and can give better insulation with the same thickness. The shell of this jacket is offered in premium colors and is a bit more fashionable than the basic black offered in the Core.
The Solar 2 offers “puffy” insulation in a nylon shell to give insulation/warmth under your riding gear. Nothing works like air space to give warmth and that is why a slightly puffy construction like this is the thing for winter. This jacket compares with removable insulated liners you find in many jackets, but this one is thicker and its styled so you can wear it off the bike as well as on the bike. Most removable liners found in jackets aren’t set up for use off the bike like this one is. :: Paul, 10-15-18
REVIT says: The Solar 2 mid layer jacket is what you’ll be reaching for when you head out on your motorcycle and the temperatures start to drop. It’s a great match to your existing clothing wardrobe, whether on the bike or not. Making it as warm as it is is the inclusion of PrimaLoft® Gold insulation technology. Furthermore, it’s feather-light, easily packable and can be stowed away in a backpack or in the back pocket of your jacket. Not only is it perfect underneath your riding gear, it can worn as a standalone jacket.
