Rated 3 out of 5 by Joni A good design, with few things to do better
This jacket has nice cuts to it and it fits AM and Enduro driving very well. It breaths as well as a waterproof jacket can. Not for the hottest of the hottest days tho.
I have had issues with the seam tapes getting loose from the seams, making it less waterproof. Other than that, this is very nice jacket

Not worn in bad weather yet
Measurements/fittings are different to older matrix jacket (which were spot on)
Bit disappointed that the drop tail has gone (unlike the old matrix jacket)
Hood bearly fits a fox flux lid never mind full face!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Makie17 AWESOME!!!
Such a great jacket, water proof, wind proof and a big hood to fit a helmet under. It looks good enough to be worn just as an everyday jacket too.

Great cote brilliant in the rain easy to hand wash the fit is good to the only downsides are it doesent breath that we'll but in winter I think it wouldn't be a problem also the hood is a bit on the large side

Rated 5 out of 5 Love, love, love this jacket
Pin strip looks awesome, fit is great, does a reasonably good job of keeping you not too warm once you start going for it. Given the price it's less than half that of more expensive breathable fabrics so you can't argue with the performance.
Only possible negative is that the chest pocket is just too small for most smart phones, but I think the intention is that you use the headphones port to keep the tunes coming. Given I don't use music whilst on the trail, not a problem for me.
Hand washed this, just using warm water, a few times after some very wet and muddy rides and it's come up as new each time.
