I've got a Scorpion Burnout jacket and I don't care much for the fit. Feels a little short... if the jacket was an inch or two longer, it would be perfect. However, the jacket feels like it was made with some quality material.

For $60, I'm not too disappointed... But the next time I buy a jacket, I will try it on first.

rmb = Olympia gear is about *twice the quality of the Scorpion or Fieldsheer jackets, and are priced accordingly.


* Olympia uses "real" cordura nylon which has been proven time and again to be much superior to the other "ballistic" nylons the other companies come up with.

I don't own any Olympia gear, but I've seen enough gear threads.

I've had a few good deals finding closeouts for the wife, if you look they're out there. I love the quality, they have my business for a long time.

My primary jacket is an Olympia GT Air...it's fantastic, year round. in cold weather, I wear a sweater and a balaclava and am just peachy into the low 20's...I highly recommend Olympia stuff. Revzilla has a bunch of their stuff on clearance right now, too...Check it out!
