Great looking and great fitting jacket! It's VERY warm!!!! With the removable liner in, I can easily ride in a short sleeve t-shirt and not be cold. I did have to add a long sleeve layer when temps dropped below 10 degrees but that's typical with any jacket. Highly recommend.
I really shopped around and found this one to be the one I wanted based on style, looks and warmth. After buying it I read more into the F.A.S.T and it was an extra bonus. The only item that I feel could have used more attention was that the inner sleeve hook doesn't hold so the inner sleeve when taking the jacket off comes out. A better design could have been more attachment points, rope ties, etc. The price was higher for the jacket compared to competitors but I was after looks and style more than worrying about price. I had competitor jackets prior and wore them for 6 or 7 years before getting this one. Longevity, we'll see if it last with riding and wearing as an everyday jacket.
Great features but I recommend getting one size bigger if you have a gut
I normally wear a large as it fits my arm length and shoulders but I have a paunch so this jacket was a bit snug with the liner in. Without the liner it fits perfectly. I've had other FXR jackets and always large has fit but I'm guessing with the FAST flotation insulation it makes the jacket a bit snug. Still fits over my bibs and will likely loosen up over time but you may want to go one size bigger if you plan on wearing it with the liner.
