Has anybody ever got anything from this company? Some of their products look really nice. Have been thinking really long about getting this. but in the white. I just dont like the hump, it throws the look to me.

I have a pair of their Leather pants, I've had no problem with them. They make some nice stuff. I did try one of their leather jackets and did not like it, it was easy to return. The jacket was part leather and part textile, I don't remember the model but the leather was not as good as in the pants I have from them.

My riding jacket is a Shift Textile Jacket. I have been using it for quite a while, and have been very happy with it. The only negative is that there is no back protector in my jacket, but it does have a pocket, so you can purchase one to put in there.

Just got a Shift jacket this Christmas. Haven't used it yet, but it fits perfectly. I'm 6'2" and weigh 200lbs. and I got a Large. The sleeves are long enough and the elbow and shoulder armor are placed perfectly.

Ive got a set of thier leather and have been really pleased with them, they fit well and have features comparable to Alpinestars for a much better price -

I did have one of thier jackets and I wasnt really happy with it. It fit more like a stunter type jacket, really baggy arms and HUGE opening where your hands come out. Im used to more of a race type, where the sleeves are snugger and the opening if taiperd so you can wear a pair of gauntlets over the sleeve, I wasnt able to do that with my Shift jacket . Just my personal pefrence, thier stiching and construction seems to be top notch -

Shift is owned by Fox and although, I have seen a few racers wear it, I know very little about the product, so yeah... I'm no help

They make really good stuff. They actually pay a lot of attention to detail. Their stuff was a little boring a couple of years ago, but they have upped their game.
