Rated 5 out of 5 by Wow! First of all you definitely get what you pay for. I researched this jacket for a while but there's not many professional or user reviews out there. So I took a punt and here's my round up. It's a lot! lighter than expected, fits a dream with lots of adjustables in all the right places. The spine articulates great, hardly even notice it. The jacket can be worn without the spine and kidney belt for lighter rides, but with the extra straps provided the spine and kidney belt can be worn on their own which is a nice touch. The mesh breaths great and is also antibacterial to keep the Whiffs to a minimum. With all the straps the plates stay in place but you still have great movement. The vents have tiny mesh inside them to keep as much crud out as possible. The top half has elasticated velcro straps to hold the kidney belt and top in once piece. The kidney belt also has a spot to velcro the belt to itself which stops those annoying moments when you trying to take the armour off and it keeps clinging to you and eventually fraying your nice race jersey. In summary if you have the money (I was lucky to catch a deal) buy it! you wont be disappointed. I'm 5'11, broad shoulders 32-34" waist and the M/L fits a dream. It also comes with a handy carry bag. 26 March 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by When i saw it i just love it. It is very comfortable and in good weight always assuming the protections that gives you. The backpack is removable not in the easier way but it makes the Battle Evo wearable in a easy ride without extreme danger. Definitely recommend it ... it's for your protection. 10 August 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very good fit, allows great movement and breathes well. Most importantly I have walked away from some big hits that would of been a trip to the hospital if I had not been wearing this armor. The only negative was the front zippa broke which was a little dissapointing, but a cheap fix (and probably under warranty but I didn't bother investigating). Also looks sick. Overall great product, definitely worth the money... 05 June 2012

Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this jacket-just arrived and really happy with it! Was a bit concerned about sizing, as I'm 6'3" and skinny. I could still adjust it all so it feels snug yet totally comfortable on (L/XL size). I'm sure it could also be re-adjusted to fit someone much broader than me too. Build quality is ace and it feels super light on. Admittedly I haven't ridden with it on yet, but appears very breathable and easy to move in. All fasteners are well secured in. I hesitated for a long time on this because of the price tag. But waited till there was a 10% off-£180 was a good deal. I reckon you'd have to be pretty fat for it not to be a good fit. Definitely recommend and can't wait to test out! 11 May 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by This vest reallo looks and feels good. I have had several different brands before. Funny though that the factory writes in te little "manual" that it is not intended for motorcycle use....... 03 March 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by I think you cant get a better protection than with the ixs Battle jacket evo. I am riding the jacket since two months and it fits really good after the first ride. This jacket is definitely the best choice if you are looking for protection. I had the dainese before and after the first accident i wont wear them again. But with the ixs battle jacket evo you don´t have to thing about normal accidents, there will nothing happen to your body. Very Excellent, and the best protection!! 25 August 2009
