Looking for a jacket

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a riding jacket now that it is getting cooler out. I have been just using my jean jacket, but it really dosn't offer much wind protection. I was wondering if anyone has found one they really like and where they found it at. :banghead:

I've got a Joe Rocket and it's nice. Bought a Technics as well a while back because it was a neutral color and went better with my candy lime green 9R when I had it. My JR is red and black the Technics is grey and black. I just got tired of looking like a Christmas decoration riding a green bike with a red jacket... :banghead:

Both are fine jackets. Get whatever you like that has the pockets and vents and rain flap that you like.

I use Joe Rocket jackets -- if I need to take a short ride, in chilly or even cold weather, I put on a leather jacket for the ultimate warmth, along with lined leather gauntlet gloves that fit over the sleeve ends to stop drafts.

Other than the leather one, I used several different Joe Rocket jackets -- they work great for me -- built-in armor too.

Sold in Pete's Cycle, and all over the net, too.

Motorcycle accesories warehouse has very good pricing on JR. It's a pain because they can't even list their pricing online so you have to call. It is worth it though as they were much cheaper.

I have the JR 4.0 balistic jacket and pants. Rode in today at 39F and misting, just another ride except I don't trust laying into corners in those conditions

I bought two jackets this year. The first one was an Icon Merc. Priced around $100 bucks. Not bad jacket, good for the street, no liner, no collar. I'll keep it for warmer weather. The other day I bought a Firstgear Kilimanjaro jacket and LOVE it. Got it from newenough.com for about $270 delivered. I would buy another jacket like this in a heartbeat. This is a closeout deal becasue the have a newer model available now. The folks at newenough have been great to deal with, quick ship and good product. My wallet is now $500 lighter due to them in the past month.
