PowerTrip powershift jacket

Does anyone have this jacket? If so any reviews? I saw it in the dealer for 299 and found it on ebay for between 150 and 275. Tried it on and its pretty comfy. has leather on shoulders and back of arms. front and back are textile and zip off to give you an almost total mesh jacket. also has armor in back and arms and has zip in rain liner. seems to be a pretty good all season jacket made by joe rocket sister company if I remember right.

I haven't been too impressed with the powertrip stuff I've seen. Most of the powertrip stuff I've looked at appeared to be cheaply made. I have not, however, looked at that particular jacket. If ya look online you can find a list of "things to look for" in a motorcycle jacket. With textile it's namely the abrasion resistance of the fabric used and the type and quality of stitches used (it doesn't matter if it's made of steel plate but falls apart in the first foot of a slide).
