Jacket Recommendation

Hey folks

Im now in search of a leather jacket only. Any advice or suggestions with image and price would be appreciated.

I have joe rocket bottoms in black so something matching those would be nice. Keep in mind the bike colours (repsol) so nothing aluminous green or anything

Cheers

Steve

Stick with J.R. the Blaster jacket is affordable, and will match your pants.

Or, you could go with Repsol colors to match your machine....

Field Sheer has a very nice perforated leather jacket and they now come with a FULL liner meaning the liner has sleeves, not just a vest). They also have a non-perforated jacket with large vents if you ride in a colder climate. Both have a 2 zipper sets in the back for attatching pants one of which is a 360 degree for track days.

Got the 2006 version of the blaster in a half price sale getting rid of everything for the 07 goods coming in. 200 down to 100. Good stuff. All the gear got now

I bought a CORTECH GX-AIR jacket about a year ago its a textile mesh jacket with leather spine protector shoulders and forearms/elbows it has removeable padding & armor plus two liners. one waterproof windbreaker the other is a quilted thermal liner for warmth.the jacket has the 8" zipper attachment for pant but not 360 degree. as for as a jacket goes it solved my problem of winter/summer. I've ridden in 29 degree temp with it snowing outside in the winter and was comfortable although I was tucked behind my fairing, and I've worn the jacket when its 120+degrees out here in the desert with out the liners and been more comfortable then in a t-shirt(due to having protection and not being directly in the sun.)the jacket breaths awesome.
they are availible in most colors and only cost $179 dollars so its a good value also.

I hate Fieldsheer. Check out newenough.com for some good values.
