Summer Motorcycle Riding Jacket

Postby BottleCap » May 20th, 2012, 5:23 pm

I've been rocking a Joe Rocket Suzuki Nitrous jacket. All in all its a great all around jacket. I like it so much, I have two. They do well all year round. My only gripe is the front zipper. I had to have it replaced on each.

What's everyone else wearing in the summer?

I think I need a new leather vest... wouldn't mind a new jacket too. I wish I was a +size boy for this (nice deal):

After prowling the web, it looks like the textile mesh style is pretty much *the* choice for summer riding jackets. Guess I'll stick with it.

I usually wear something that will hide my gun and still keep me cool.
T shirts and a vest or underarmour long sleeve to keep the sun off me and still keep me cool and a vest.

Just a heads up guys, I would beware of mesh jackets, I would stay away. The thing is that they actually don't hold up too well in the event of crashes.. I would try to stick with leather if you can afford it.
