I like my buffalo hide when it is cold it is real thick. Let me know how you like it. I have never thought of any thing else but leather.

Cool the pic just popped up

Pat does this jacket run true to size? I have seen comments on other jackets that I am looking at that they run small or you need to get next size up...etc The waterproof feature is nice along with the zip outs so I may be interested in this since I ride 3 seasons. The forecast for us here in the Mid West is mid to upper 40's in the morning and 60's - 70's in the afternoon.

Be seen and be heard! Bright lights and loud pipes!

Enjoy the ride

I got a textile jacket made by First Gear, from Motorcyclegear.com - $65 (old stock) in hi vis yellow.

I like it better than my tourmaster mesh jacket.

The mesh jacket is great when its hot out and i leave the inner liners out, the wind blows thru it like there is nothing there

but when Its cooler the textile jacket is less bulky, and it has better protection from road rash than mesh

I also have a few leather jackets I wear when Im just riding around town - not designed for MC crashes, but better than riding naked.

YamahaPat, I have the Blitz brand mesh jacket that Cycle Gear sells. It's my go to jacket with removable liner, put in in on cool mornings and take it out on way home. It has held up really good. If memory is correct, this is sixth year I've used it. The only issue is notice this past year the black is starting to fade some from sun. The top of arms are now a dark gray while the under side of arms is still black. I hand wash it pretty often and hang dry. Hope you enjoy yours.

I should get it Friday. I feel good with the reviews. When you buy a new jacket every 15 years or so you can't cheap out. Next winter gloves. I will post a review when I have a little data.
