This is the second one I have bought. I love mine and had to give one to my father. It's so comfortable in the warmer temperatures of Nevada.
Great alternative to a light leather riding jacket. I like the idea of the armor but they are a bit cumbersome but are easily removed. My only complaint is that there are no side pockets (like the leather conceal shirt has). I do like the shirt though , just wish it had side pockets.
I got this for a gift, I used it yesterday in the woods with prickers, branches and mud. The padding worked great with the tree branches, the material that it is was made out of was great handling against the prickers. Also chunks of mud never stuck. This jacket is very breathable so I never got sweaty. Will use forever when I ride.
