Crash PerformanceReview by Mike
So, I've had my jacket since June 2010, and reading through these reviews I saw a comment or two wondering about the crash performance of this jacket. Well, I was taken out by an out of control car last night. I was accelerating through about 40 mph when a car skidded across two lanes at excessive speeds and side-swiped me. I was airborne and then sliding on the pavement for about twenty feet after landing. Long story short, the armor was awesome, and the abrasion resistance also good. The road burned through some of the waxed cotton, but it held up as good as the nylon cordura suits I've seen post crash. Any crash like that is going to cause damage to the jacket, so don't expect "man of steel" performance. The best thing I can say about this jacket is that after the insurance claims are settled, I'm either sending mine in for repair or getting another just like it. It saved my ass...period.

All-purpose townie coatReview by WPZ
I've had mine about three years and it's the jacket I wear in town. (Not too keen about giving up the Roadcrafter protection on the country roads!).
Oddly, it never rains when I wear it; it's only been wet twice but did well.
In winter when there's no riding, I pull out the armor and use it as a winter coat.
I had the reflective and velco deleted for that reason; however, most of the unnecessary velcro was on the jacket anyway and I had to take it off myself.
The above comment about running large in the size is true: I'd figure to be an XL, and was advised so at the store. However, when we were there getting my wife's Roadcrafter measured, I tried a Large and it's just fine. (I'd normally be a 46 or 48).
I'd be curious to hear about crash results from some actual, if unfortunate, experience. (Posted on 10/12/10)
Great jacket periodReview by 350B
Had my Falstaff for around 5 years, it is fantastic in rain and heat.

Left it on a bus in Italy a few days before the Milan-Taranto - gutted, I wanted my jacket to experience the crazy race as well. Ended up borrowing my old man's Falstaff that he luckily had spare.

I will be getting another. (Posted on 8/25/10)
Best Jacket So FarReview by Erik Hoover
I purchased a Falstaff in early Spring this year to replace my 1-pc Roadcrafter. Far more comfortable than any other motorcycle jacket I've owned. I've worn it in a range of temperatures from 30s to 90s, rain or shine and it's superior to the Roadcrafter. I even had an opportunity to crash-test it last month and it did remarkably well (although the incident was perhaps 20-30mph) -nary a scuff and the armor did the job well.

I try to buy local whenever I can so the fact that it's made here in MN is a bonus and it's a stylish alternative to classic leather. My only complaint is that they don't make waxed cotton pants -I'd buy a pair based off the AD1s in a heartbeat. (Posted on 7/2/10)
Great coat!!Review by Whofungpu
276 miles of pounding rain and not a drop got through. It does have to dry out after a wet ride, but I made it through the event, including a few rainy days, and the ride home with not a drop getting in. I really didn't expect it to perform like my textile coats, but I am glad I was wrong. Sizing chart said I was a large. Had to return it for the medium. (5'8" 190lbs) (Posted on 6/14/10)
waxed cotton Rules!Review by gmengel
I bought my Falstaff in 2005 and it's till going strong! I wear it winter and summer, and never worry about precip getting in. Waxed cotton works GREAT!
It's heavy and the collar won't stay closed, but I rarely zip all the way up to my chin anyhow so I usually don't care. Big secure pockets and good venting - it's nice inside!
If you live in a dusty place, get the waxing kit. It'll give you something to do when the snows get deep. (Posted on 6/3/10)
Excellent replacement for my aged RoadcrafterReview by Gregg
When it came time to replace my Roadcrafter jacket, I wanted another 'Stitch. The Falstaff is all that and more. Huge pockets, great fit, super comfortable. The venting works quite well, though the heavier fabric and lining make it warmer than the Roadcrafter. I love the 3/4 length - no more riding up in back. I've only been in light rain so far, but it beaded up and rolled off. My only complaint is that the sleeve cuffs are little too wide, and bunch up when cinched down. (Posted on 5/20/10)
Great Coat... Sizing?Review by Loren
The Falstaff is a great coat. I have been wearing it over the past couple of weeks and it is more windproof than my other Stich. Lots of pockets! I will use this coat quite a bit in the Spring/Winter. I must warn you about sizing though. I ordered a large after talking to the folks at Aerostich twice, they agreed a large would be the size for me… No way! I wear a 44 Short Roadcrafter suit and a Medium Falstaff fits me almost perfectly. They do not mention on the website or on the phone that the Falstaff is cut larger than other coats. So if you don't like returning things be forewarned. (Posted on 4/22/10)
Just recieved jacketReview by joeker
Nothing hacks me off than paying a premium price and the product is made in China. I don't mind paying for a quilty but when I pay for it I want it. This jacket is very well made as you would expect for the price. It is a bargin. I will be riding around the world wearing this jacket this summer. If you can swing the price do yourself a favor and don't buy anything else. (Posted on 2/6/10)
very happy with itReview by Eric
great jacket, highly recommended. I bought mine about 4 years ago and wear it just about year round. Layering underneath is easy and comfortable. I'm smaller stature, so the pads didn't sit well on me and were uncomfortable. I bought a Bohn spandex armored thing and this works well and easily under the Falstaff. I've ridden in absolute downpours for hours (during a rally) and I got damp around the collar and the wrists, but that's it. Impressive jacket, I would buy another one if I needed to.
