    decent features, poor durability and comfort
    I like the fact that there are myriad pockets and adjustments. That's about it.

    The fit is extremely poor, large pants and a small jacket go together, and i'm a very average 165lb 5'10" build.

    They lasted about 5K miles of commuting and dual sport riding and some of the seams are busting.

    I would save up for better gear; in fact, I have. These are sitting in the closet now.

    They are fine to buy if you are unsure about the whole dual sport thing and don't want to commit $1000 to good gear, but they won't last

    Cheap to buy and cheaply made....
    The Akito Desert jacket is very cheap to buy and the old maxim "you get what you pay for " applies here......The main zip broke on mine after the second time I wore it .........So if you only want a jacket to last you 2 trips then buy this one; if you expect a jacket to last longer then spend the extra and buy a proper jacket.

    Weak Zippers
    Had this for a year and the zippers in both arms have failed. The back vent zipper was hard to use from day one.

    Jacket seems nice, sizing is for the scrawny!
    Just got this, and I am bummed. I've got a big ride today and was excited to wear this, but the sizing is way off. I got a large (6ft, 190 lbs), and I can't even close my arms together as the chest/back is far too small. I will return it for a larger size, but be warned that the sizing runs "Japanese" small. Yes, I am slightly large through the shoulders, chest, and upper back, but I usually wear a large in most jackets. Now I am going to need an XL which will no doubt bag out around the stomach. Build quality seems good, though I note that stitching is off in places. Armor seems sufficient. It is a cheap jacket, so I am not going to grade it too harshly- it looks like it will fit the bill. But get a larger size than you think you need unless your chest is concave.

    Exceptional Value in a Jacket
    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
    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!
    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
    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.
    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
    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.
