I am looking for a summer riding jacket. My JR Alter Ego unzips to reveal mesh underneath, but I'm not sure if I trust mesh during the summer when I'm apt to be riding a little harder. Plus, it's black and hot.

I want a white leather jacket. I'd love a white Vanson perf, but it's just so pricey.

I like the looks of the AlpineStars Ice better, but it just doesn't look like it has all that much perforation. ICON is fully perf'd but looks a little funky and isn't armored like the A*.

A*:

Anyone have these jackets, or any experience with either one?

Those jackets don't seem to have any armor. I mean, they look pretty sharp and would be nice for casual rides, but I you're looking for something with protection and still has plenty of ventalation. I don't think those jackets would do much for you if something were to happen. There are a lot of jackets out there that are leather, preforated, and yet have armor. Just my opinon...

Got a link, or a size? I am a little guy, about 5'6" and 145 lbs. Chances are, he's bigger!

To Mr. Gixxer600, the A* does have shoulder and elbow padding. But if you know of other summer/perf jackets that come in white and have some armor, please let me know. The costs of the two jackets are about the same (~$280).

Oh, I didn't know it had to be white. Your best bet would be to check out that white jacket he's talking about. I've seen it...and its brand new as of 2 weeks ago and it looks pretty sharp. I think it'll fit you. PM him
