I wear a Ballistik Apparel Racing suit. They just started making street jackets with custom options. Check them out

I like the Icon leather jackets. Not a fan of a lot of Icon stuff, but they do the leather jackets well.

I have the Daytona Retro one, have crashed the fuck out of it and it's still going strong.

The new Dainese Superspeed is nice. There's also the agostini. I really wish Alpinestars made the Atem in EU44 but that is also a great jacket.

Rev'it is nice too, I'm actually going to order their horizon in high vis

Nothing beats a well fitting leather jacket. Try a bunch on, there's probably a hundred or so that are all about the same with slightly different cuts and size variations, but same basic features and functions.

I've always liked Shift jackets and own a few, there's some pretty good sales since Shift discontinued its street line. Motorcyclecloseouts.com has a lot.

Any recommendations for jacket/pants or suits that are not vented? I need warmer gear for the transitionary months cuz my vented one piece is just too cold under 65 degrees unless i layer up.

To the OP - what's the criteria? Leather or no? Budget? What's your build type? Just tossing out a question like that is a bit too open to get a targeted answer


- Throttle's on the right. So are the brakes. Good luck.

I'm definitely partial to RS Taichi being a slimmer built rider. They have great armor and snug fit. Their lightweight mesh jacket is highly breathable and heavily reinforced/armored. But A* and shift have treated me well also. Good protection and build quality.
