Affinity Mesh Riding Jacket is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great warm weather jacket Great choice for riding in warmer weather. Venting is great. Jacket is made very well and has some weight to it. For extra protection pick up the body armor panels from Harley. Amor pockets are sewn inside the shoulders, elbows and back and slip right in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WELL WORTH THE PRICE! I purchased this as an alternative to a leather jacket for summer riding and it was an excellent choice. It vents really well and riding in Texas heat is not an issue. It does start to get warm when stuck in traffic but once you start moving it cools off quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Summer jacket Very nice jacket and a steal for the price. I live in So. Florida and the temps get very high down here. This Jacket makes you feel like you have AC on when moving due to the venting. I wear it because I have to wear a dress shirt to work & when I ride my bike it protects the shirt from road generated stains and also keeps me from looking like a total geek riding my Pro Street Breakout in a dress shirt. Very nice jacket, I recommend to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than Road Rash I bought this, because I don't want road rash again should I go down. Plenty of airflow while moving, but I still sweat and feel the hot humid MidSouth heat with this on while sitting still. Great pockets and fit; even for my beer gut. I wish it came in an even lighter color. The main zipper seemed to stick in the middle where the exterior fabric is bulky around it. Other than that, pretty comfortable and moves air through it.

If I order the incorrect size can I exchange it for the correct one?
Asked by: PopeyeUSA
Hi PopeyeUSA, H-D Online does not have a exchange policy as of yet. Therefore, your best option is to return the "unwanted" item and reorder the correct size. Hope this helps.

Does this jacket come in SLIM FIT

Asked by: Tom67
I don't know if it comes in slim fit. I am 2'10.5"and weigh 190 lbs with a 36 in. waist.. A slim fit might be to tight for me if I want to do any layering. It fits me well.
