Exceptional Value in a Jacket

Comments On Feb 28, 2014:One never knows about apparel unless it's tried on. Purchasing a jacket on faith is always a risk, so I was a little reserved when I ordered this one based solely on the reviews and appearance.
Short version: This is an EXCELLENT jacket. I'm very satisfied and want to go riding, except it's raining in So Cal, which is very, very odd.
The jacket has three layers. The outer "shell" which is very substantial all by itself. Two inner layers zip inside, nesting, to create layers of warmth if it's cold out.
The material is heavy, with zippers to allow for breathing when it's warm. The elbows and shoulders are protected, and everything fits great.
I'm 6' 4" tall, and weigh 215 pounds. I bought an XL, and it fits perfectly. The sleeves are plenty long. It's almost as if the jacket was designed around my body double.
I'll be using this for many years to come. It looks great, fits great, has all the features outlined in the product details, and makes me feel great, too. Like it's possible for a jacket to make me feel anything... well, this one does. Rain or shine, hot or cold, this one will keep me covered.

Excellent Buy

Comments On Jan 21, 2014:This jacket is fantastic. Especially for the price. It has done great in the rain, in the cold and even some hot days. Vents work pretty well. Have done more than 5000 miles with this jacket with no issues. Definitely a great buy. Wish they had more products for sale but the jacket and pants are great.

Great Gear, even better price!

Comments On Dec 08, 2013:Purchased the Desert Jacket and Pants Combo. Fantastic gear, especially for the price. Warm, durable (crashed multiple times in the dirt in it already, including a real scary down-hill tumble) and looks fantastic. Armor is food, well affixed, worked well in the crash.
The liners do severely restrict any chance for ventilation when wearing with all 3 liners in, but that's the case with any non-Gore-tex 3-1.
Great buy, would recommend to anyone looking for realistically-priced gear.

great value

Comments On Apr 21, 2013:jacket is a good fit. It has kept me pretty warm riding about ten miles to work in 20-30 degree weather. i dont think you can get a better jacket for the price. I did have a broken zipper right away and rocky mountain took caee of it right away. has been great since then.

Excellent jacket but needs a better outer zipper.

Comments On Dec 01, 2012:I am very satisfied with this jacket. Great protection yet decent movement. Lots of pouches and pockets. The only negative is the outer zipper is of low quality. Akito needs to use the higher quality zipper that some of their competitors and add a few bucks to the cost of the jacket to make up for it. Have rode in 40 degree temps and it is very comfortable. I bought the matching pants and I have received lots of compliments about how great the outfit looks which says a lot because I'm really ugly. 5'8" 170 with a 42" chest. Ordered the XL and I like the fit. I could fit the Large but I like the looser fit.

you get a lot for the money

Comments On Oct 04, 2012:size info was spot on, i am 180 and 6ft and a large fit perfect. while this is not a $700 jacket it is every bit as nice as a $400 one for less than half the price.

Great Value

Comments On Sep 13, 2012:I received the jacket today and for the price, it can't be beat. Sure, there are plenty of $ 600-$800 jackets out there that are probably better quality, but this jacket isn't too far off. With the liners in, the jacket feels very warm, but not too bulky. I got the pants too, so now I have the full suit. Before I found this brand, I wasn't excited at the prospect of shelling out $1,500 for a full dual sport riding suit. Now for less than the price of another brand's jacket, I have a full suit.

Good looking jacket

Comments On Jul 01, 2011:Took this jacket to Baja with me. With out all the liners it was still too hot during the day and I had to take it off. I wish the arms would zip off like most jackets. In the cold it works great. Zips right up and deflects all the wind.

Excellent value

Comments On Feb 23, 2011:Great Jacket. Nice looking, warm, and versatile. Lots of pockets and durable.
The quilted liner zips to the rain liner and then the rain liner zips into the Jacket. But the quilted liner does not zip into the jacket on it's own. I find this to be a bit of an oversight as it would be nice to not HAVE to zip in the rain liner too.
Overall very happy with the Jacket and would buy it again.
