Looks nice enough. Check to see what their return policy is.
If you spend $15 for shipping, then it doesn't fit or you don't like the leather (or whatever) then have to return it AND pay for return shipping of another $15, then you already paid $130 + tax until they rufund your $99.
Remember that cycle jackets fit snug so you have to be sure about the size!
This happened to me with a pair of boots. They were on sale for $69 with $10 shipping, then they didnt fit and I had to return them with another $12 shipping. I paid $22 shipping just to tell these people that the boots they were selling were not true to size!

In my opinion, not if it's just a cotton liner. Buying this would be like buying $100 underwear with a reflective strip. No one would ever see it.
*The outer jacket is the important one. Leather, armor, padding, reflective strips.*
Get yourself a thin comfortable sweater or long sleeve shirt. Old Navy, Foot Locker, or Sports Authority always has Nike, fleece or even one of those thin waffle weave sweaters for underneath.

Try www.LeatherUp.com this is where I got some of my gear cheap. It's not flashy name brand, but if you're just starting out, a $500 Icon jacket just aint in the budget!

I guess what I meant was, if it's for underneath or just to keep warm it doesnt have to be reflective and it sure as shouldn't be $100!
And if you plan on leaving your jacket outside on your bike, let me know where you park and when you won't be there!

JK...

Never leave your outside. Never. It took me longer to type this than it would take a dickless piece of to steal your gear.
No f*cking honor in society today, my friend.

yeah thats true... guess i wont leave my jacket outside (never have either)... and yeah $100 on that inside jacket isnt really worth it, rather just buy a inside jacket kinda thing from AE or Aero or one of those places..

the DTP jacket is nice, i've had mine for a little over a year, and i have to say that i'm more comfortable in it in hot weather than cold.

the vents have been more than adequate for me up to about 95deg. days, but the elastic along the inside of the arms makes for a bit of a chilly ride if it's <50 outside. the "liner" that comes with it only lines the torso, and it's my arms that always freeze first.

what i'm using for cold weather now is a joe rocket "lucky" textile jacket that i got just a bit too big so i can wear a sweat shirt under it. unfortunately, the vents on that one don't do much good, so it's warmer in hot weather than the PT leather jacket.

i've found it to be well worth the $100 i spent on it, i'd definitely recommend it. also, it fit pretty true to the size i measured (and ordered).
