I'm contemplating getting one of these but I'm not sure about sizing and I can't find anyone around here that carries one to try on.

A couple of websites have mentioned that the arms, specifically around the elbows are pretty tight. I'm not the incredible hulk or anything but my arms don't fit the "thin" category either. My MotoGP leather jacket is kind of loose in the torso but the arms are snug so when I see a couple of mentions about even tighter arms I get a bit nervous.

Anyone have first hand experience with how this jacket fits? I searched a bit but didn't find anything really specific about this issue.

I'm 5'10" and right now around 190 lbs (but loosing some to get a bit more trim) and the Joe Rocket size charts show that I would be a 42 or 44 depending on how optomistic I want to be.

I'm 5'10 175 lbs and have the 42, good size for me. Arms are fine in riding position, not too tight. I'm not the hulk either, but in shape. Take this for what it's worth.

i used to have one of the joe rocket black and grey leathers im 5'11 and around 200 pds and the 44 fit fine...so if you want it to be real snug go with the 42 if not get the 44 and you will be fine...might want to go with the 44 tho depending on your build...im a lean 200pds low bodyfat percentage and the wrists neck were kinda tight on me...the biceps were really really snug when trying to take off my helmet but perfect when in the riding position..

I'm 6'1" 195lbs, long arms, good build and the size 44 fit me real well. I preferred it to the Speed and Strength, Icon, Shift, and A-stars I tried on, but ultimately settled on a Dainese Zen. IMO the Honda Joe Rocket leather jackets are a good deal, though I wish the zippers were a slightly better grade, and had a black finish rather than polished steel.

Hey Tex, just saw this...
I ran into supply problems with this jacket as well. Once it went into 'clearance mode' they all went fast (unless you want Blue or an extreme size). I'm searching for other options now but if you find one let me know.

I'm 5'9", 185lbs. I have a Joe Rocket CBR size 46 that's too large for me. I just picked up a Joe Rocket Superhawk from newenough.com for ~$200. Size 44. Fits great. I like the CBR jacket a little better but that may be due to the Superhawk being new and not yet molded to my body.
