The AGV Sport Venus Leather Jacket remains true to size according to AGV Sports sizing charts. One of the first things noticed about the Venus is it is definitely not a smaller version of the mens cut. The rounded seems in a womans top (princess seams) allow the jacket to conform to the figure of a womans body. The Velcro wrists tabs in addition to the pre curved arms allow for a perfect fit in the sleeves.
This jacket was also designed with maximum airflow in mind. The zippered chest intake vents in addition to the back exhaust air vents provided great airflow. There are also pieces of leather sewn underneath the arms in the 100% polyester mesh lining to prevent ripping.
The idea behind these jackets is protection, and the AGV Sport Venus Leather Jacket does not cut corners when it comes to safety. The jacket is constructed of 1.1-1.3mm thick leather, with the thicker leather being placed in high impact areas. The main seams on the jacket are double stitched to avoid tearing, and there is also CE approved elbow and shoulder armor in addition to a 1 cm thick foam back pad for added protection.
One of the most important things when riding is nighttime visibility, the AGV Sport Venus Leather Jacket does not disappoint when comes to this. AGV Sport has placed 3M reflective piping in the front and back of the jacket which becomes bright when it is struck by car lights.
The AGV Sport Venus also includes a waist connection for a pair of pants, which provides great protection for the lower back. If the zipper that the jacket comes with does not fit your favorite pair of riding pants, than you can simply remove the bottom portion of the jackets zipper and re-attach it to any pair of pants.
Many of the womans jackets on the market just seem like a shrunken version of their male counterparts. However, AGV Sport has taken the time to design a true womans leather jacket. The AGV Sport Venus Leather Jacket is well constructed and conforms to a womans body.
