The protective quality on the torso and neck line is unmatched by anything I've worn so far, and the whole piece sits comfortably on the body, without feeling necessarily "weighty." The arms, though a bit stiff, have a natural spring to them, as if the sleeves want to strike out before returning comfortably to a resting position. It's a stylish piece, and it looks good on anybody.
Whatever issues I have are very minor. Heat is an issue with any jacket, and this one is no exception, but it isn't as bad it could be, as you're still able to breathe just fine. The elbow lining has a seam that rubs uncomfortably on your arm if you aren't wearing it in just the right position, though I'm sure this will remedy itself over time. Lastly, the jacket is rather tough to put on and take off by yourself, especially after a fight that left the inside lining sticky from steam and sweat, but this gets easier with experience.
