I bought this jacket and was very surprised with its comfort. Wore in to St. Louis, MO on July 20 and back to Arlington, TX on Aug. 1. Temperature in OK read 105 degrees, got a little hot when stopped but when I was moving I was comfortable. Only down side was that the website does not offer a timeline for delivery on the free shipping, mine came in 5 days after ordering - including the weekend.

Nice jacket. We just logged on 4,000 miles using this jacket. We went from 98 degrees to 46, and then to 105 degrees in a matter of hours. The coat performed well. It is a little confusing installing and removing the liners with all the snaps and zippers. Other than that this coat is fantastic.
Awesome Jacket! The liners go in and out easy with the color coded attachments. With two liners the ability to adjust the temperature is endless. Super comfortable. Best jacket I've ever owned. Keep in mind I ride in California so the coldest temperature I've ridden in is 50 degrees. Don't think this would be the right jacket below 50 degrees.
Its a greart coat ,the service I got was great good peaple to deal with, if they cannt see you in this they are on there DAM phone. Be Save and Be Seen Denny:
Anything I can put on a riding jacket and the Mrs compliments how it good it looks on me and is pleased from a safety aspect is a winner in my book. As usual, great service from Jafrum!
The jacket is high quality, but the shoulders look ridiculously wide once you put the jacket on. I had read tons of reviews and am still surprised this was never mentioned.
Fantastic jacket for hot or cold. Using the mesh shell with quilted lining I can go from low 40's AM to over 80 PM and still be comfortable.
Excellant coat for the $ hard to find anything like it in Canada. Only bad thing is the shipping and customs almost as much as the coat. Ordered 2 coats.
Live in the desert and we can have a thirty degree spread in temperqture in just a few hours. This jacket is very versatile; perfect for this climate. Well made and fits great. Everyone who sees it comments on good it looks.
I just purchased this jacket which is the light weight version of my other TourMaster Jacket. It is excellent, very lightweight, very breathable, well protected, comfortable and loaded with great features like the water proof and insulated liners. I live and ride in Sedona area, so a cooler jacket was necessary, but I didnt want to give up protection. This great jacket ticks all the boxes!
I am about 6' 2' and rather long arms. I bought the large tall and it fits great. Comfortable jacket in the heat, but it has liners for moisture and warmth. It stays cool enough for June in Texas, we will see what July brings.
This item shipped the same day I ordered it. I had it the day after it shipped. The size chart was a little misleading so I ended up sending it back for a smaller size. the exchange went well and the replacement fit perfectly. This jacket has more features that I can even describe. I bought it for Summer riding so I have only used the Mesh part of it. I can't even tell I'm wearing a jacket when riding in 100 degree temps. I love this jacket!!!
After goin' down a couple of times over the years, I'm not quite as casual about hittin' the road with any skin showin'. I also want to be SEEN big time, so I ordered the high-visibility yellow tourmaster Sonora Air. It's beautifully designed, well made, and comes with 2 removable liners. One quilted, and one waterproof, that zip easily in and out of the mesh outer shell. How cool is that? 3 jackets in one. It's all I'll ever need. - It's been really hot around the Midwest so far this summer, but 90 plus temperatures are easy to handle in this jacket and it feels good to be armored up even when it's hot. It's a great fit, and I really like the overlong arms.This Tourmaster Rocks! note: Pay attention to the size chart. I normally wear an XL anything; in this jacket their L is just perfect.
This Sonora Air jacket from TourMaster is an excellent choice for the commuter or tourer looking for the breathability of mesh with the protection of Carbolex, in a three quarter waterproof chassis. The majority of the body is constructed of highly breathable Armor Link mesh. This material is soft and flexible and flows a ton of air. The panels in the traps area and collar are made of 600 denier Carbolex. This adds structure to the chassis and provides a good anchor for the 1680 Denier padded ballistic polyester panels in the shoulders. There are additional ballistic panels in the elbows for added abrasion resistance. Also for protection, CE rated armor has been added to the shoulders and elbows with a foam pad in the back. Also for protection, Phoslite piping has been added throughout the jacket with reflective panels on the arms and the TourMaster reflective triangle on the rear. Finally, a zippered tendon has been added to the inside rear of the jacket to allow pants to be attached to protect your lower back in a slide.
A huge size range and a ton of adjustability make the fit of the Sonora Air jacket very versatile. This jacket is available in regular sizes XS to 4X, tall sizes medium to 3X, ladies regular sizes small to extra-large, and ladies plus sizes small and medium. This jacket is also available in a three different color options, including this gunmetal, with all black and high viz yellow also available.
Let’s look at some of the features. Starting at the neckline, you can see the padded mandarin style collar and the large vinyl main closure zipper with pull tabs. This zipper is two way, meaning it can also zip up from the bottom, making the jacket comfortable in many different riding positions. If you unfasten the zipper, you can see the double flap closure setup of the liner system flanked by the zippers for the liner’s removal. Unfastening the secondary closure zipper in the center opens the jacket up revealing the quilted thermal portion of the Aqua-Therm liner system. This two stage liner system consists of the removable quilted liner you see here as well as a waterproof yet breathable liner beneath it. These liners can be used together or individually depending on the riding conditions.
All three of the layers have excellent amounts of storage included. The thermal layer has a three pocket setup, with two pockets on the rider’s left and two on the right. The waterproof layer has two large map pockets, one on each side. Any items stored in pockets inside of the waterproof layer will be safe from the elements. The shell has a ton of storage by itself, with the same interior pocket arrangement as the thermal liner, and a hidden pocket at the main closure. On the exterior, are two large map sizes pockets on the chest and two hand warmer pockets. Remember, though, that none of the pockets on the inside or outside of the mesh shell are waterproof, so be aware of which pocket you use for your wallet or phone.
Lastly, let’s take a look at the Sonora Air’s adjustability. The waist features easy to use hook and loop straps to offer a secure fit around your core. The arms are also adjustable, with snap style take-ups to minimize buffeting at highway speeds. The cuffs of the sleeves have hook and loop adjustment with the same comfortable band around the opening as the collar.
Again, the TourMaster Sonora Air motorcycle riding jacket is a great choice for the tourer or commuter looking for a highly versatile three quarter jacket for multi season use.
It's versatile for all types of weather!
As for the padding , YES , it has full spine protection ( soft-pads) even padding that wraps arround your kidney area.
