Jacket is so comfortable and warm and the zippers on the sleeves help to cool down when too hot. I'm a new rider and this is perfect first buy
The Speed and Strength Off the Chain 2.0 stood out the most for me as a modern/street style jacket that still offers adequate protection with INCLUDED elbow/shoulder/back armor. Many other comparable jackets in this price range offer chest/back protection as separate components, driving the price up closer to $300 for the same level of protection.
The second big selling point was the adaptability for cold/warm weather riding with the zip-out fleece hoodie. Having just bought my 2007 R6 in the dead of Winter I was very happy to make this purchase knowing it will still be comfortable to wear in the warmer months thanks to the zip-out hoodie and zipper meshed airflow pockets at the body/arms. For the time being I'm avoiding any sub-50 degree weather riding days, but once I'm a more seasoned rider I'm sure it will do well enough for short commutes or perfectly fine with an under layer or two for the extra cold days.
The fit is a little large as a size small, but that's also expected as I'm a Short King™ at 5'4'ish and 120lb, however that doesn't make it uncomfortable at all when riding. It fully meets expectations for fit and exceeds expectations of quality/comfort.
Lastly, big shout out to Yamms for offering this jacket at the same price as other retailers but with the added bonus of entries into the giveaway series! At the time of my purchase the beginner gear giveaway was also live with entries on any purchase on top of the bike giveaways, so really can't beat that!
Very durable textiles, great protection placement, nice snug fit and form, excellent venting as well. Looks good with quality construction to top it off.
I’m 6ft tall 200 pounds and it fits perfect. I love the quality and it’s a great year round jacket.
Surprisingly good ventilation, and the hoodie liner is excellent.
Oh heavens where do I start :o
Bought this after my first encounter with death. (Death wobble) I dropped the bike, and my body slid down a crossroad. Most of the damage was on my arm, knee, and helmet.
Okay so I haven’t worn this while riding yet but I have worn it while running errands. Not only is it stylish, its lightweight but somehow still very toasty, it makes me feel OP when I get on the subway to get to work.
I’ve stress tested this on my own by having my roommate punch the spots with armour. It did more damage to me than him.
I’ll update this review when I fall off my bike again. If I’m lucky, that won’t be for a long time.
Bought it as a gift for my brother. He finally got his first motorcycle and we wanted to get him the right gear. He loves everything! The shoes and jacket has to be his favorite lol definitely buying again once my boyfriends bike comes in.
Wind resistant outside layer with zip out hoodie inside layer, comes with back and elbow protection. The front zip is not windproof, very drafty in immense cold. Hoodie is very long, easy to wear over thumbs if desired. The arms have good insulation, I pair mine with a vest and actually take the liner out to wear a better liner if it’s really cold. It has a lot of pockets that are easy to open and close with gloves. Reliably average build quality with a lot of usability makes this a solid purchase.
We’ll made jacket but zippers could use some improvements. Fits very well and feels great on. Seems very sturdy.
Awesome jacket! Very breathable and has good armor on the back, shoulders, and elbows. Warm jacket on the inside for the winter.
Got this jacket back in July. It made a great summer jacket with vents and plenty of pockets. This last week I got to test it in some colder weather. With the hoodie liner I was comfortable riding in the lies 50s
Very comfortable fit me perfectly love the air vents in it.
This jacket fits great. I love the removable inner lining. It super warm. Not a single game breeze gets in unless you open the arm vents. I love the belt loop hookups. Overall amazing jacket.
It is an awesome Jacket, it looks amazing.
Used this jacket during my MSF course due to rain and it was great. Fits very well, looks sharp. Especially appreciate the detachable hoodie for those chilly mornings.
This jacket looks amazing and I prefer the style much more then the leather counter part l. While it’s also less expensive, truly awesome
I normally wear large but the XL fits perfectly. Comfortable and descent airflow for the northern states summers. If in much warmer climates it may lack a bit. The armed response pocket is a bit small, good size for a cell phone
The jacket is great. They got it to me in a week, which was great. But they didn’t give me my tracking info until it arrived and I don’t always get my packages so I like to keep up with where my stuff is while it is on its way. Outside of bad communication, I’m happy.
One of the best jackets that I've ever purchased. It's super comfy, feels great, looks great, and has quality materials.
Great Jacket. I bought mine a few months ago and I wear it almost everyday to work and on casual nights out.
I really like mine. It keeps me dry and looking good.
