Looks cool... but I'd be concerned about the generic, "foam padding"... I usually like
to see AT LEAST a "CE approval" of my armor....

Keep us posted... (pun intended).

You can replace the pad with a set from Knox, I did it in one of my wife's jacket. www.planetknox.com. They have a couple of different styles to choose from. The were really easy to work with, but shipping can be a bit pricey.

Thumbs up Update

Jacket came in today and it's MUCH nicer than I expected.

It is a MESH jacket and even though it comes with a liner i'm sure you'd not want to be riding in the winter. But 3 season it should be just great...

It seems to be very well made with armor in the elbows and shoulders.
It also has foam padding in a scalloped fashion on the back arms and front.

It looks like it's going to be a good jacket for a fair price..

I also have a leather one coming. I'll let ya'll know about it as well..

Pictures attached..

Sorry, but it looks like a turtle shell or reptile skin. I like my leather more classic. Check out Fox Creek leather. Very nice, heavy weight classic leather. I wear mine three season, fall, spring, winter.
Good luck, hope it works for you. In the end that's all that matters.

Was just looking at the paperwork that came with this jacket.. It says the armor is CE rated. So I pulled one of the pads out and sure enough it says CE right on it...
I'm upping my rating on this jacket to 5 stars. I can't find a thing bad about it.
Although even with the liner it's just not going to be a cold weather jacket. I'll have to break out the leather I think below about 50 or so....

Take Care,

Spence
