I got the grey jacket, received before the expected day, incredible and perfect package shipped by Jafrum, I received the exact size recommended in the size chart, I am a 6" feet tall and 180 pounds person and Large size, believe me, fits perfect.
The jacket is a 3 to 4 season, could be very cold for a winter time but I am planning to ride in a tropical country where temperature change depend on the place and time of the year and altitude of the town in the mountain, so i need something functional and easy to adapt to the weather change. The three layer system is amazing, and specially to stop and rest in a cold place you can remove the external layer and just remain with a simple relaxing jacket. I still do not test the waterproof system but I believe is good.
There are reflecting stripes in front , at the back and the sides, the protection in elbows and back seems to be fine.
Comfortable to ride, cool enough without the second and third layer.
Pockets are very small for anything you would like to store if a small transportation in the city, but in personal opinion I prefer to avoid carry anything as a safety precaution specially during off road rides or long trips, so I do not care but i am sure others can be worry about it.
neoprene in the neck make it very comfortable to close adequately
Plus the amazing experience surfing and buying with Jafrum, and very qualified customer service.
Recommended as a mild range price jacket with a great possibility to use in hot cold and rain seasons. Not sure and probably not recommended for winter or extreme cold temperatures.
I am considering to buy same brand ( Olympia) for my girlfriend.

I had a friend recommend checking out Olympia jackets since I have recently gotten back into biking. While I am not a sport bike rider and ride a cruiser this jacket fit my needs for a high vis jacket that offers some protection while yet still not feeling like I am bundled up and can enjoy the ride. The jacket has 3 layers as in the description and the middle layer can be worn on it's own as well. On a warm day with just the outer shell on the mesh allows plenty of airflow through once you hit about 30 mph and feels great! I wore the inner liner only while I did a motorcycle safety class on a rainy weekend and it worked well. When I biked in my 20s a leather jacket for warmth or no jacket at all was fine for me, but now in my late 40s and a little wiser this Jacket is perfect and makes me much more visible (I got the Neon High Vis version) I feel like more people can see me now than ever before. Comfort, safety protection, rain protection and an insulated liner, you have a jacket for at least 3 riding seasons, well worth the money!
