Upon its initial use, my son noticed an unpleasant fishy odor. Despite washing it, the smell lingered. Therefore, we decided to leave it outside overnight, and the odor dissipated.
"I absolutely adore how well this jacket fits and how I appear when wearing it. However, my enthusiasm was dampened when I realized that the color appears gray in bright sunlight or under intense lighting because, indeed, it is gray.
I had been specifically seeking a sleek BLACK jacket, so this discovery left me somewhat disappointed. Nevertheless, I decided to keep it because I found the style and overall appearance to be acceptable."
These jackets are nice and lightweight, perfect for slightly cool temperatures. However, I did find it a bit tight in the back, and after a year of use, the inside lining started to tear. Despite this, it served as a good jacket.
Considering the price, this jacket is a decent choice. I ordered it for motorcycle rides during our brief cool seasons, and it performs adequately for that purpose. I stand at 5'11" and weigh 205 lbs, and it fits well in terms of sleeve length and midsection, although it's slightly snug when zipped up, but still wearable. It's worth noting that the chest zipper pockets are decorative and not functional.
My son is 6 foot 215lbs built like a football player & the XL fit perfectly.
