We checked the fit on these jackets with our size mannequins and we also spot checked a few other jackets with a tape. We feel this model runs consistently with Tour Master’s size chart (see below). The jackets are sold in ordinary “alpha” sizes, so you can choose the size you normally wear in men’s clothing.
The overall cut of this jacket is ideal for street and touring riding. It is more relaxed through the torso and not as “forward leaning” as a sport bike/race jacket. Getting a good fit should be very easy and those with average or stout builds will like the cut. Tall/skinny people might find the jacket a bit large through the torso.

Our Two Cents
Tour Master’s new Koraza Jacket can be summed up in one word: “simple”. A lot of people would like a very simple jacket like this they could just grab and throw on to give some basic coverage for your body and clothes and provide some protection in case of a crash. This jacket does those basic functions without a laundry list of special features. The shell is basic black and has a cut which is relaxed and easy to fit and wear (see my sizing advice above).
The jacket has a nice set of CE approved armor, but it is a lighter-weight and thinner type than in a lot of textile styles these days… it is a hard shell plastic over foam design that is super light and thin which works well in a lighter weight jacket. You probably won’t even notice it. The back pad is simple foam.
Aaron and I took a set of photos to point out the pockets, waist adjustment and other little things, so please take the “View Larger Images” link above to see those.
This jacket, with its simple design and all-black style will appeal to any type rider from everyday street riders to urban/scooter or even cruiser riders. The design is simple and easy to fit and wear and best of all, the price is really low. To me, this jacket represents about the most basic jacket you can buy with reasonable protection and quality. :: Paul, 11-03-14
