Needed a replacement for my old worn out jacket. This fit the bill very well. Priced well. Very versatile. Removable liner allows for wear in slightly warmer weather and it has tons of vents to keep you cool. Very good wind and water protection as well. The collar could be a bit more comfortable tho. I've worn this jacket in February with no problems and am still wearing it in August!

I was in a hit and run last fall and this jacket did exactly what it was supposed to do...the Paramedic was impressed that I walked away from such an accident with just a few cuts on my hand and knee..
Jacket has been exactly what I expected....great fit, lots of pockets, zippers protected, and meets my needs. Have worn it so far without the liner and has kept me warm at 45 degrees. Bought it to go to Alaska in 2010 and so far am extremely pleased with the functionality and practicality. Would recommend it. Motosport had it to me in 3 days!
Nice jacket fits Very well i am 5'10 and 190Lbs i got the Large and it fits perfect has 2 shoulder vents 1 chest vent and a Back vent as well as removable liner which i usually do not use... i ride in 40-50 degree weather with Air vents Closed and got around high 70s and rode with my air vents open and felt nice and fresh air and has a lot of nice Pockets all over
I haven't had a chance to review this jacket out in the "real world", but I will this weekend. I can give my first impressions of this jacket. I purchased the Silver/Black XL.
First off, the fit is really good. I'm 5'10, 225 lbs, broad chest, and the XL fit me perfectly. It has some extra room for me to fit a fleece pullover on under it, and still not have it too tight. The strap around the waist allows it to be tightened up to fit just right. The fasteners on the sleeves also allow them to be adjusted to fit the wearer.
It's the little things that make this jacket. The extra fastener to latch back the collar to let in a little extra air is a good touch, as well as the extra velcro around the vents in the jacket, allowing it to scoop in air and stay open. They should come in handy to keep the temps comfortable inside this jacket, as I have heard it can be a little warm. The silver is also quiet reflective on it's own, and the reflective stripping are visible enough while not being too gaudy.
Well, that's not hard to believe with the liner in, as this jacket is plenty toasty when it's equipped (even the liner by itself can keep you warm). It's not of the highest quality, as it came with quite a few threads showing, and the cut of it is not like the liners of some other jackets which you can wear on their own. Still, it does it's job (well, as far as I can tell).
Lastly, the CE armor on this jacket seems really good. They fit over the right places for me and feel to be good quality. Hopefully I'll never have to test if they work.
Overall, excellent jacket for the price. I would highly recommend this jacket to anyone who is looking for something to wear all year.
Really a nice jacket, high quality, comfortable,very functional. I tried on a lot of jackets before ordering this one, and this is the one to have! It gives me a sense of protection other jackets do not. I have only worn it during cold weather so I'm hoping that it's as comfortable with the lining out as it is with it in. Oh, and it looks great too! Very stylish. I bought the tan one just so I would'nt look like everybody else in black. It's definetly an eye catcher.
I've just taken my Tourmaster Transition 2 jacket on a 300 mile trip. This jacket is very comfortable and warm. I road in temperatures down to 32f and it kept me warm. Lot's of pockets to store things. Seems to be well vented also but I did not get a chance to try them.
