I have had this jacket for about 3 months now, I really liked the colours and the fit when i bought it in the store. Now that i have ridden with it a lot I can give an accurate review. 1. the side pockets are pretty small and barely hold my phone (iphone 6s) with a case on it, sometimes i have to shove it in tight just to get the zipper up. 2. the sweater liner on the inside of the jacket seemed like a great idea but when you're riding the hood part of the sweater is flapping in the wind and is really annoying plus you ride with a helmet and it just gets in the way. This is on huge part of the jacket i would personally like to modify! But on the positive note the sweater has spots to put your thumbs through which i use before I put my gloves on and it kind of acts as a seal and keeps me veryyyy warm. 3. the adjustable arm locks are helpful when getting a tight fit for the amount of layers you are wearing underneath. 4. the vents work great they are helpful on hot days but make sure to open them all. 5. the padding seems strong enough to skid through a fall but i haven't tested that yet.. nor have i been through enough rain to test the water-resistant feature it advertises. All in all for the price of this jacket i would recommend it to any new rider it's definitely comfortable fits very true to size and prevents you from have to wear extra layers with the lining! It's my daily jacket and ill wear it until it crumbles!
I tried out my new Spellbound Jacket last night for the first time! LOVED it!!! Its comfortable to wear and kept me warm while riding.
At a first glance this jacket appears to be great value for money, and once I received the jacket and rode with it, I found that to be the absolute truth! I love how it comes with a removable hoodie for layering and is equipped with extra protective padding which is comfortable and easy to remove if you wish. I usually wear a S in women's shirts, but have this jacket in a M for easy layering. If you'd rather it fit snug it is true to size, but if you plan to layer I'd recommend ordering a size up. For taller women, no worries, this jacket fits well in the body and arms. I'm very happy with it.
