Did anyone buy a leatt 4,5 jacket that can give some feedback i want to get one for sumner riding and they seem well vented.
Just the sizing that gets me i fit a 48 rally jacket and it seems like these are sized rather big.

Also curious.... Anyone?

They are sized perfectly for wearing armour underneath. So they do run slightly large without it.

Anyone looking for the 5.5, Full Throttle stocks them and they have a less 15% sale on everything in store until sunday so you can get this jacket for just under 3k. Bargain of note. Lynnwood has S & M in stock

Did you see if they have the pants also?  I'd like to check em out.  Looking to replace an aging pair of KTM powerwear pants.

They don't, not at Lynnwood anyway. I ordered Klim Dakar pants online because I couldn't find decent stuff in the stores and I've been to like 10 stores in the last week.

KTM had some really nice Scott offroad kit but I wanted ITB pants but with pockets as well. Not too many options around

Got my 4.5 jacket today. A little difficult to put it on over my full hard shell suit. Will work better with the airfit suits. Looks like a well thought out piece of kit. Going to test it out tomorrow

Did a 800km ride over two hot days with the 4.5 jacket. Great jacket and while moving I was never hot. Still struggling to put it on over my armour though. I am between a M and L and the medium fits snug but its also stretchy. Two of the hook tabs on the zippers already broke off. Rear pockets held slops, underpants, shorts and t-shirt

How is the 4.5 as an everyday jacket? What sort of protection does it have if worn without under armor?

None. And no pockets to add padding either
