TAICHIMOTO.COM STAFF PICK: INCREDIBLE PROTECTION FROM A MESH JACKET!
|XL||IN BETWEEN M-L|

Jacket does a great job with airflow and comfort. Two minor complaints. Very minor ones.
The white collar looks great, but sweat causes it to look dirty very quickly and it requires constant cleaning.
Lastly, the main front zipper should be a sturdier looking zipper and feel that way.
I'd also like a little more reflectivity all around the jacket if I could change anything.
Otherwise I would recommend this jacket to anyone wanting a good summer jacket with great airflow and comfort.

The jacket fits so nice that I felt like using a racing suit. All protections are functional (they probably will protect me during a fall) and the ventilation is superb. When I used during a cold morning, I realized that ventilation system works all around my body.

I read in another review of this jacket online that the guy who ordered it was way impressed with quality, so my expectations were high when I ordered this. True enough even with high expectations I'm impressed with the quality and look of this jacket.
I'm 5'10 and 145 lbs, same as the other reviewer. L fits me well, like he mentioned it ends just above waist. The sleeves fit me well, right over the ends of my gloves.
Also, like him, I scoured the internet to find a jacket since the local motorcycle shop had only a few jackets in my size and nothing I wanted. I've been riding with this jacket in Arizona (110 F +) so far this summer and it's great! I wear an underarmor shirt underneath and when you're riding it feels like you're not wearing a jacket at all, even in direct sunlight.
I especially like the armor which is largely why I got this jacket - I'm confident that it will perform very well if it ever needs to (hope not).
All the zippers function very smooth, pockets are nice (2 outer 1 inside). I got the black Jacket and I get compliments on it all the time.
Also as the other reviewer stated, the custom service here is amazing. I emailed and got in touch with someone to change my shipping to 2-day to match with the arrival of my motorcycle and it was all hassle free and the guys seemed very friendly.
Overall best purchase for something like this that I've made online, and reading through their policy that allows you to return the jacket to exchange for a different size really made it worry free.

As a new person entering into riding. I scoured the internet to find a jacket to fit slim (skinny) people.
5'10, 145 pounds, tall and lengthy build (I wear a 38R in suit jackets). I ordered a size L in the jacket. At first try on, it fits snug and tight. The sleeves end just at my wrist bone, so some may say it's too short when leaning (but if you get gauntlet gloves, that eliminates that con).
Jacket falls just above my waist line of my pant (as expected for this style of jacket).
I think I may have to up the size to XL if I want to fit a hoody underneath, for the spring/fall riding season. For summer though, the jacket feels light, airy, breathable.
Overall the build and feeling of the jacket feels 100% superb.
Customer Service of Taichimoto = awesome! I ordered a M at first, they called me up and suggested to get an L. Which def. was the right choice. Only considering an XL for the ability to lair some more for latter season riding.
