Shit... I have the 03 model (two of them exactly) and I sure didn't pay no $45.00.... More like $100.......


But yeah, its a great jacket. It took second in Motorcycle Consumer News's shootout. Vents good. Great armor.... fit is decent. Pretty straight cut.

I have a 48 and I regularly wear a 46 suit coat. 48 leather jackets and XL in cordura jackets. So the fit is pretty good and pretty accurate.

I normally wear 42 long in suit coat.  [When I bought mine last spring, they had a limited number of sizes...so I chose to buy bigger (so the sleeves would fit me better) rather than smaller.]  I would probably have bought a 44, but the closest was size 46 so I got that.  It is quite loose, but not so big that it looks bad, and not too much flapping or anything.  Actually, I like it loose in the chest...it seems that more air can flow in like that, I think.  But, I worry about the looseness in the sleeves...I fear the armor may slide around in a crash.  Thinking about maybe getting an extra snap mounted on the sleeves so I can tighten them a little more.
