Excellent RST jacket, loved the style, colour and finish (I already have an RST jacket which I am very happy with.). Had some problem with sizing as I purchased this for my son who is 6'4 with wide shoulders and 42'' chest. Went for a size XL, however it was still tight at the shoulders, loose around the chest, sleeves too short for a tall person.
As it has been rather warm for the past 2 weeks I have had the thermal liner out, and I feel that it fits really well.
A few minor cons, one of which being the two front pockets. They are quite high up, which means that when I reach for the zip I look like I'm imitating a chicken.
Waterproofness works as intended, logo looks nice. Very stylish jacket.

Superb bit of essential kit
Brought both the jacket and matching trousers a few days before a 25 day tour round Eastern Europe, Romania and the Balkans as I'm always hot and the temp is up in the thirtys ( still away on bike holiday as I write this) I wanted something cool with removable thermals and removable wind/waterproof lining and these fitted the bill at a great price. Go a size larger on the jacket if you can unless you are slim and athletic. The matching trousers are the same and have both removable linings. I would say the quality is excellent and even after riding as far as Budapest in 30 deg temps they are still fresh. As of yet I've not used the linings even as late as 23:00 but I assume the quality will be just as good.
