The jacket was the most versatile jacket I've looked at. The full sleeved liner makes it useable for cold weather. It eaven has a neck sleeve tucked away in the liner. But remove the liner, open up the vents and you could wear this on all but the hottest summer days. My only critisism is that the sleeves were too long relative to the waist length. The jacket fit well but at the right wist height and chest size I founf the sleeves down to cover half my hand. And Im not out of proportion with a 46 chest and 34 arm length. The leather was nice, a little shiny but not too much so. Just a bit stiff but that will work in.
