I have many touring jackets and at $116 USD this is less than half the price of the next cheapest and a fraction of some of them. Here’s the kicker I actually like it the best. Its smart looking and breathes beautifully. Appears to be well made (time will tell on that) and I’m happy with the protection, shoulders and forearm elbow. I did put the back protection out of one of my other jackets in though. I feel the standard one is a bit thin. Cheap and easy replacement. All in all exceptional value for money.
