This one is a good compromise for both extremes.jbar52 said:have a few $$ to spend on a riding jacket,would like one that is good for hot and also cool weather riding.any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
DITTO !!!!!Look into the Cycleport/Motorport line of clothing. The Air Mesh Kevlar line offers super protection and comfort. Thier stuff is expensive, but is gaining a reputation similar to Aerostich (and is priced like Aerostich). I currently have an older non-kevlar Cycleport coat that is great, but not mesh and a bit too warm for summer riding, but great the other 3 seasons. Saving my pennies for a air mesh kevlar jacket or suit.
I bought two of the Tour masters (one for SO) and have one thing to say: It better be real cold if you have the liner in...and I mean REAL cold!mbd said:A few people mentioned NewEnough.com. I like doing business with them. Also I prefer the Tour Master Tranisitons jacket. In CAs central coast I deal with ambient temps from 28 degrees in the morning to 80 in the afternoon. This jacket has served me well.
Also I took a 40 foot slide while wearing one of these about a month ago. It did it's job and the armor was excellent. No joint or arm injuries. I immediately replaced it with another one from NewEnough.
