We put a size Medium in this jacket on Huey and we put an XL jacket on Dewey. These are the sizes they normally wear and they look good. I will say that the fit is “trim” overall and the jackets aren’t a “roomy” fit like you find in a lot of mesh style jackets, so please pay attention to the size chart and max belly estimates we offer in the chart below. If you are between sizes, I’d advise choosing the larger.
This is a bit longer style jacket and there is ample adjustments for the waist/belly area, so as long as you choose an appropriate size for your chest, you should be OK in the belly. But just in case, I added an estimated “max belly” measurement too, so you can make sure the size will accommodate your belly as well as your chest.

Our Two Cents
If you want the features of an adventure-style jacket, but need something for hot weather use, then you are in the right place! This Yuma jacket from Scorpion is one of the few choices out there that is fully mesh AND in the longer “3/4” style. The longer styles offer more coverage and also more room to stow stuff than shorter waist jackets, popular with touring riders as well.
The outer shell on this jacket is largely mesh, and the shoulder sleeve areas and portions of the back are a more abrasive resistant solid textile material. But by and large, the wind will blow right through this jacket, so consider this style for your hot weather needs. The jacket does have a removable full sleeve windproof and waterproof liner, and that can be used to extend the comfortable temperature range of the jacket by blocking some of the wind coming through the shell. And of course it can be used to keep you dry in a shower. The liner can be easily removed and stowed in a small space.
Speaking of stowage… this jacket has a large rear fanny pack pocket that would be perfect for that liner, or other gear. On the front, there are two large patch pockets and inside there is a zippered wallet pocket.
This jacket has an excellent armor package… Sas-Tec in the shoulders and elbows. The armor pieces are comparatively lightweight, very pliable and have sort of a soft “squishy” feel to it, which makes it very comfortable in apparel. Ordinary CE armor inserts are a bit heavier and not as pliable. The PE foam back pad can be upgraded to a level 2 CE certified Sas-Tec back protector.
This jacket has lots of size adjustment. Like other styles of this kind, there are two large velcro-adjustable waist straps, then there are some VERY substantial sleeve adjusters. Longer styles like this are an easy fit and with the torso adjustment look good on just about any body type.
The combination of summer mesh construction and the 3/4 adventure style and cut is a pretty rare combo, and if that is what you want, then this one ought to work for sure. The overall quality is great and the styling is good too. Be sure to pay attention to the fitting advice to choose the right size (fit is trim without lots of extra room). :: Paul, 08-13-15
