This jacket is great. It‘s light and VERY warm, excellent protection against wind and good against some light rain. @neph93 XL fits trim for me, ok for layering with a tee, a longsleeve and a shirt underneath. More would be to tight. Guess you, having a more pronounced upper body volume than me, might prefer going for XXL.

Thank you very much N. I was going to ask how it went. I felt like I would be between an L and an XL, but I’m looking at wearing it over a base layer and putting my IHV-22-OLV over it. It will be my new everyday winter set up.

If anyone accuses me of copying a certain Shinichi Haraki, then I’m not going to be able to deny it in good faith



Anyway, after some top quality help from @Graham, I decided on an XL and it should be here in a few days. Sounds like I may have made the right choice.

With @Graham ‘s help it will be the right choice.
The master looks great on this pic. Should also add some patch to mine.  :)

So i just came back from my first 200km ride with this jacket in 10c weather and i have to say i am impressed.
It is a bit too A shaped for me (a bit tight in the shoulders and a bit loose at the waist) but in use it isn't a problem.
The jacket is super slippery and it fits really well underneath a leather jacket. No binding, no thick seams in the shoulders, no bunching anywhere, it really disappears underneath your riding jacket.
The wrist knits create a really good seal, once i zipped up the wrist zippers of my leather jacket above them no air was coming in through the wrists even at motorway speeds.
The collar is really nice, it really seals well with the helmet and i never had a cold neck. The knit in the back of the neck is nice against drafts.
The elastic at the bottom hem is a nice touch, i had no air coming up from my waist at all. This jacket is 0.5" longer than my leather jacket so i barely have any overhang, it looks good.
I like that the edge of the bottom hem is doubled with a thick fabric, it looks like it will last a long time even if used heavily.
It is really fully windproof, even at motorway speed with my leather jacket zipped halfway i couldn't feel any wind going through the nylon shell.
All in all i wouldn't really change a thing, it is a good design, it feels like quality and it kept me warmer on the bike than anything else i have worn before. I am confident i could go down to freezing temps and still be warm enough.
It also feels sturdy enough not to worry about damaging it. Just shove it in the paniers and go...

My only issue with it is the price, it feels stupid spending that mych money on a bit of nylon and plastic knowing i could buy a Vanson for that amount, but i guess that comes with the brand...
If you are looking for a "regular jacket" i think it is hard to justify that price over a cheaper brand like NorthFace or Patagonia, but if you need the motorcycle specific characteristics of that design i think it is worth the asking price.

@Carlos840 what a great review. Thanks so much for that. I’ll be picking mine up on Monday, and was already looking forward to it. Now I’m downright excited.

It will be tested out in sub-zero temps soon enough, although I’m planning on wearing a whipcord/Alpaca vest over it too. It gets down to -15C where I live.

As for price, made in Japan stuff costs, for a number of reasons…

Wow [mention]neph93 [/mention]! Congrats!
It is an amazing jacket. I wrote before on the IHJ-38 thread years ago, how much amazing this jacket is.

This is an AMAZING jacket, Reuben.  You're gonna love it!  I wasn't really into the diamond quilted jackets before getting this one.

400km of twisties in 6 hours today, temps ranging from 8c to 12c, i never felt uncomfortable, i really like this riding jacket.
I think the best thing i can say about it is that i never even think about it, it's a comfortable pattern and it regulates temperature really well. I just put it on and forget about it.
Very happy with it.

Never a truer word spoken. It was bizarre to pick up a package from Gosport, bulky and stuffed like they normally are, only for it to weigh almost nothing. It was like picking up a realistic prop stone made of foam.

Even more strange was unpacking it. In hand it is undoubtedly IH. The quality of the construction is obvious. The detail and unity of form of and function really do deserve to be called «engineering».

Putting it on, the paradox was complete. That something so light can be so robust and well made, and so damn warm, simply doesn’t make sense. Winter can come, I’m ready.

I'm so pleased that this item is beginning to get the love that I always felt it deserved.
