Should fit you pretty good .. I am 5'8" and 180 lbs and the XL is slightly too big but like it that way so can layer underneath it ..

I just looked at their contact information and found out they are just right up the road from me! Guess I'll be taking a little ride over there.

Take some money with you. They have lots of different jackets and sizes to choose from. Jackets are very nice, very soft leather, feels like it is broken in just right the first time you slip one on.

They cost more than most but I will spend that money again closer to spring to get my new correct sizes. Health reasons forced me to loose weight, If anyone missed that above. My Size 60 For Sale

As said above, I got mine about 1 size big so I could layer a sweatshirt or whatever. Their sizes run in Inch measurements not L or XL etc. and their website explains how to measure yourself.

Fox Creek Leather

Ditto on Fox Creek Leather. My wife and I stopped there on our trip down the Blue Ridge Parkway (great ride, by the way) and bought jackets. Great stuff. Good THICK leather. I have the Commander jacket and chaps. I needed to go one size larger (42) even though I normally wear a size 40 (5'10", 160 lbs). Highly recommended.

Especially for the price! Victory is charging just as much for leather products from Asia as Fox Creek is charging for a good quality jacket. I don't know how the quality of the Victory jackets are but for roughly the same price you can get a great jacket from an American Company made here in America.

And they even have one with decent zippered ventilation.

I can't quibble with the quality of the Vic stuff, but had I known about the Fox Creek thing beforehand, I likely would have bought one from them.

A local Victory shop had some 2011/12 lathers andvquiteva few were made by Venson in the USA but not in my size. All the new China or VietNam. Just can't buy them although they look nice and I like the logo. Bad move Victory
