I love this jacket!!! The size runs a little on the low side though. I normaly wear a 54 coat so I ordered one size up at a 56. It was a little snug so I sent it back for a 58 and now it fits perfect!!!
Zippered vents front and back afford great ventilation in warmer weather. Great fit given that the jacket was ordered on line without a fitting. Hot Leathers have their sizing just right. Zippers are a little stiff making it difficult to zip and unzip pockets and vents while riding. I'd buy another one if this one gets scrubbed or lost.
I now have a real motorcycle leather jacket! This thing is well constructed, heavy duty, great looking and comfortable, even on cold, cold days. 30 degrees this morning at the start of my daily 50 mile comute to work. I couldn't be happier, and as a side note, the old lady even likes it!
OK, I am a 46 for suit coats and 17.5 neck 34/35 sleeve, I ordered the 46 but it was a bit too snug in the chest and the stomach. Returned it for a 50 and it fit great. I also took it on a 1600 mile ride around Lake Superior (last week of June). The liner was too warm so I took that out and opened the vents (awesome) and the jacket kept me at a comfy temp the whole ride. I hope to never have to crash test it, but it should prevent road rash thanks to the quality of the leather. no armor tho! I did alot of comparison shopping and this is by far the best deal out there.
Purchased this jacket after trying out a buddies and this jacket is exceptional. It fits well, sleeves long to come down over gloves and zip tight around wrists. Blocks wind without letting it get in like the previous jacket I was wearing and living in Michigan you need a decent leather. Quality of the jacket I think is excellent and will purchase another of the same when needed. Like so well thinking about updating the chaps I have now to Hot Leathers. Don't think anyone would be disappointed with this purchase. Thanks
This is a nice jacket for the price. The vents are something every leather jacket should have. Unfortunately I had to return it because it was too small. I'll be buying the same jacket in a bigger size though.
I ordered this and rad the reviews and ordered it a size over what I needed as everyone told me to do. wrong... I am keeping it as if I am wearing a sweat shirt underneath it it will still fit and be comfortable. I had to tighten the back support all the way to be able to feel it. I am ordered another one a size smaller. what I would normally wear as I am sure it will fit perfect then. great jacket, get it you won't be disappointed
Normally wear a 50 in suit size was way to small. Returned for a 54 and fit just right. Have to hand to Dennis Kirk on handling the return. Sent it out the next day after it hit their dock and even received it early. Liked the quality of the jacket. Heavy duty and moderitly priced. Making a run to Laughlin NV end of the month and I will give jacket a workout.
This is a heavy, well made great looking jacket but runs really small. Ordered a 52 for my husband, sent it back and ordered a 54....its still too small. In fact, I don't think the 54 was any bigger than the 52...really messed up sizing!
