Default Sliders 3/4 length jacket

Thinking of going Hi Vis. These slider jackets are sold by Competition Accessories. They look good in Hi Vis and seem to have alot of good features for a reasonable price. Can anyone who bought one or tried one on, tell me how the sizing runs? I need to run a heated vest underneath. Also, how about the overall quality?

Have a Sliders mesh jacket-better quality than expected for the price.
Size (xl) was dead on-I would get one size up for the stuff you plan to wear under it.

Sliders seems to be a brand unique to Competition Accessories, but, hey, as the old saying goes, "dress for the slide, not for the ride." The Kevlar in the shoulders and elbows is a good idea. Consider upgrading to one of the slide-in back protector inserts that compacc or other vendors sell.
