Just ordered one for myself. Cant beat the price. $69.95 less an extra 10%! Needs something reflective, but can add that later.

This is just what I have been looking for for summer riding. My black Olympia has good air flow but the color makes it very warm. I think I may order this one.

I read a bunch of the reviews and most say to order a size up. Did you do that? I am 6/2 and 230 pounds. My Olympia is a 2XL. Hmmm.

Thanks for posting this BTW.

Looks good but I don'[t understand why a mesh jacket needs "Zippered front chest vents". Am I missing domething? (would't be first time)

They're probably lined with regular cloth so that when you open them, they cut down on the ventilation.

Actually, I remember seeing this jacket some time ago and wondering the same thing.

The description does say the jacket is waterproof, and it only mentions a thermal liner, not a liner for water barrier. So there's probably a full membrane and the vent zippers allow air to get past it.

Happy - I bought the pants
I bought the pants, and they have arrived. I haven't ridden with them yet. But tried them on and they fit well - I bought size 40 to ensure I could wear them over anything (or nothing). My waist is 36, and these were roomy enough for heavy jeans plus a little. The velcro at the ankles allows fitting to various size boots/shoes snuggly. Material feels sturdy, but not too stiff. Lots of venting. Padding and pockets are reasonable.

I'm really pleased - especially for the price.

I ordered and received the jacket. I ordered the same size as my Scorpion EXO, and it is snug without the liner. I'm losing weight, so that's not a problem for me. I would suggest ordering one size larger. The jacket is well made, however, waterproof???? The zip out liner doesn't appear so. I'll check it out and report later. The only thing I didn't like were the internal wrist cuffs. They are like 3" long elastic sweat bands. I may try to figure a way to cut them out, after I've worn the jacket a while. I have not had a chance to wear it while riding.

Quilted liner definitely not waterproof!

I just ordered the jacket in 3xl and the pants in 40. Hopefully the 3xl isn't too large. If you are ordering anything from Leather Up use this promo code for 15% off Facebook11

My total was $116.00 for jacket and pants.

I am really liking those pants. Does anyone know if there is hip padding?
Is there a zipper on the legs fir easy on/off over boots?
Looking for an overpant, so I don't have to wear my Bohn armor all day at work...

I have a pair of those, and the knee pads are way too low on them. I used to use them in winter, but now I use chaps year round.
