    I've had my airshell for 3 years now. I don't commute every day with it, but use the jacket often enough. But the liner has worn through the neck and the the outside layer has separated from itself. Not the end of the world but I thought that motorrad would at least last a little bit longer. Like a few of the previous folks have mentioned, its a little bulky at times with the liner, but overall its a good jacket. I just don't think I'd want to deal with a hi-viz vest and this forces me to be tennis ball yellow on two wheels. If they could only make a thinner and more durable liner...

    I have had my hi-viz airshell for 2 years now. Lots of fade, the zipper sure could be of higher quality. Overall I like the jacket and it was surprisingly waterproof in a recent heavy rain. Pretty easy to keep clean toss it in the wash armor in place use gentle cycle double rinse, using woolite
    Next jacket and pants will be motoport though cannot beat their quality
