You are right. This is a chart I downloaded, hope it helps. It did help me a lot.

Anyone has any photos wearing the Venting Machine? Real photos, not BMW catalog photos on professional models. There are little photos of it online and it's hard to picture how it looks by seeing a photo of it on a hanger or laying flat on the floor!!!

Interesting, the post you are replying to is 7 Years old! I have a venting machine, but no pics of me in it.

Whoa! Didn't notice that! Well, hope he guy did solve his sizing issue by then! And hopefully the chart helps someone else, hahaha.

Here's an article with a picture.

I wear the Venting machine with jeans around town, and at traffic lights at 1pm, the sun feels burning through the leg, but not on the sleeves of the jacket. It's not air conditioned, but feels like being on the shade. That "Cold Black" fabric technology is something else! I had a mesh jacket before and I'd sweat under it, but not so on the BMW. It's amazing how cool it will keep you.

How does the VM stand against the Airflow? My buddy has the Airflow and I've tried it, The VM is cooler. The back armor is wider and elbows are thicker on the Airflow. The sleeves on the VM are way better ventilated, IMHO. He's looking to buy an Airshell, which comes with no back armor (does have a pocket to insert it if you buy it separately).
But it feels a bit better protected than the VM due to a somewhat better armor inserts. But I feel better on the VM since I really have and issue with heat down here, and the Airflow costs $200 more (which I used to buy Rallye 3 gloves and still had some gas money left!).
