Warm, waterproof, looks reasonable, low price, decent length.
Lack of removable lining makes it too warm for summer use.
The Akito waterproof motorcycle jacket is a decent looking jacket with loads of pockets, have been forced to use it in very heavy rain and arrived totally dry.
It is a very warm jacket for winter use problem is it rains in the summer as well, the lack of an option to remove the lining means I tended to overheat on warmish/wet days.
The jacket is a good length and covers my back when I am in my normal riding position (Fireblade), a lot of more expensive kit is shorter and I end up with frozen kidneys very quickly!
