Bought the Hi Vis Yellow color. Fantastic for being seen in traffic. Bought regular size, fits tight and right. Feels great in the heat, especially in stop and go commuter traffic. I like it.
nice jacket. works well when it's hot. the only thing i would change is the tail flap of the jacket. i also have fieldsheer pants but the zip doesn't work very well. the belt loop snap doesn't work either. no matter what you do, at speed, the tail of the jacket is loose and flaps around too much. i'll probably end up modifying it with some velcro to hold it down.
just recieved my order in 2 days! perfect condition and very pleased at this point with MOTOSPORTS!
As for the jacket- FS is high quality and I believe my purchase is ver sound-extra snaps included, first quality for sure.
SIZE* as others have noted, is running small. I understand the need not to have extra material catching wind but the sizing is tight so consider your height and girth. sleeves are not cut for 2 x in lenght.
I have never had a mesh jacket before so dont know how this one will hold up. But I have looked around in cycle shops and stores and this is a very good quality jacket with a little above average protection. First I read reveiws before buying and I would deffinitely get a size up from what you normally wear. I wear and XL normally ordered the 2XL and it worked out great. A little big in the mid section and arms but the straps fix that up and keep the armour where it should be. Air flow in this jacket is great. Really nice breeze flowing through the jacket. Also I dont know if it is because of the jacket or not but it seems as though I dont get knocked around as much in heavy cross winds. Which is deffinitely a plus. My only complaint is the rain liner seems really cheap and does not seem like it would keep you dry. Although most of the other mesh jackets I looked at seemed to be made the same. And besides I did not buy it for a rain jacket. Overall a really nice looking and working jacket for what it was made to do.
Even at the price now I can't recommend it. I'll probably never buy another FS product again. This is the 2nd FS product I have bought and again, let down a little bit.
This jacket is nice looking and fits well, I'll give them that. But remember when you were a kid and put cards in the spokes of your bicycle? Well that's what it sounds like in the back of your helmet because it flaps so bad! I can only imagine what it sounded like going by cars, and you can't get the slack out. Also, taking the liner out was messed up. They made it so it snaps 3/4 of the way down the sleeve so you have to dig way in to get to the snaps even from the cuff.
But again, nice looking, good fit, and will be nice and cool in the heat, but not really good for any speed due to the annoying flapping sound!
XL will fit chest size 44-46 and sleeve length 35-36.
