    That's what mine is! I would have thought you were a size bigger than me!

    Mmmm, interesting... I really like that Vanson...

    I don't see how any of these jackets could even be considered alike.

    I don't know which one you started on as # 1 and I want to keep it that way;)

    You may want a little more length in the body Carlos. I think you are an inch or two taller than me. The length on mine is 26" and that's an inch shorter than what I typically spec but inconsequential for me @5'11". It's a great jacket. Been wearing it all day and it's starting to yield a bit already.

    Are you sure that isn't the same jacket and you are just using a different instagram filter :eek:;)

    I wish I would've thought of that like ten million dollars ago!

    What are your thoughts on riding with this jacket? Thinking it won't be your go-to on that front.

    And thanks for taking the time to review. Very helpful.

    I'm so glad to see that you are open to different chest pocket angles!
    Your next one should be almost vertical :p

    No good for the bike. Far too restrictive and the hide is rather light despite its insane stiffness.

    That stinks. Why would they remove the action back anyway? Those cross zips are always restrictive without the gussets...

    I don't think this one was really designed with scooting in mind. It's just not the hide you'd want to ride in, at least not in my opinion. Shoulder gussets, like the ones on a model B would be cool I think.
