Well I pulled the trigger on one for $144 including shipping, how can you go wrong My local dealer has a BMW RP3 I'm lusting after on sale but it's still $900CDN plus a bunch of taxes

I'm not expecting too much, the looks are a bit off, but maybe it'll be a pleasant surprise.

UPS says today is the day the old ones foretold...new jacket day.

Had mine for a couple weeks. Fit is snug but comfortable, only issues are with the neck collar being a bit tight and a bit chaffy, just rock the aerostitch silk scarf and that takes care of it. Pretty sharp looking jacket actually, got a couple compliments, which was somewhat surprising.

I bought the pants and jacket back in November. I have ridden in water and found leaks at the seem on both pants and jacket. If it ever bothers me that much I will try looking for the goretex spray. I also had the sleeve split at a seem twice (it was repaired once and replaced the second time.) I have also noticed that when I wear a back pack it a) rubs off the letters on the pocket and b) really makes the collar chaff the neck. I have found the neck fitting to be snug. I do not fill out the jacket however I would like an extra 1/4" around the neck.

Did some riding in 90+ weather out by the Salton Sea last week and the jacket did good with the vents open. I should have adjusted the compression straps since it wasn't as snug with the vents open, but it did stay cool. Also was nice when I soaked my shirt in water.

Not true. JR is now making the Survivor suit with the Nano material that has replaced the pants and jacket in the lineup. I just ordered one so I will see how it is. I have used JR stuff in the past and was always happy with it. In the last few years their stuff is as good as anything out there.

Some people just like not liking stuff.

Quick update on the jackets waterproof capability. Got caught out in a freak cold front while riding back from Yosemite in May. Pouring rain for a solid hour, temps in the low 50s, jacket felt great. No leaks, perfectly warm with the liner, very impressive.
