Feature-loaded jacket


The Good: Spot-on fit, roomy hood, High quality materials

The Bad: No local dealers close to me


I ordered my jacket direct from Royal Racing USA as there didn't seem to be any local dealers near me, and their customer service was excellent. I must say, this jacket is definitely well constructed- I plan on this lasting for quite a few seasons.  The fit is pretty spot-on as I wear a large in all of the jerseys I own from Royal, but I was right on the cusp of fitting into this (I'm 6'3"), and the sleeves are just a tad short when I reach out at full extension.  I'm happy to stick with a large as the rest of the jacket fits very well.  The insulation doesn't look like it will do any good, but it really is a step up from a wind jacket.  The hood is roomy enough to accommodate my helmet underneath it, and does have an adjuster built-in to fine tune fit.  The fabrics appear to be fully capable of keeping me dry as well.  

It might not be the cheapest option out there, but this jacket is more than worth the money!  It will be my first choice on cold winter riding days in Michigan.
