Just purchased the Scorpion Battalion jacket and am very happy with it, so far. The fit is very good, sizing is right on the money. It's a good-looking jacket and very comfortable to wear. The armor looks to be protective, but does not interfere with comfort while riding. The vent system could be a little better, but is acceptable.
All in all, a good overall textile jacket for the warm weather.
