Re: Summer Riding Jacket

I got a kushitani mesh with padding and armor ready. Love it. Probably should have the armor but...

For more agressive hot riding I use my fully perfed vanson. Much more secure feeling, but not as light weight or cool as the Kushitani...

That's hysterical, I thought that's what you must've meant. The Kushltani mesh is a seriously good-looking jacket!! Was looking for one earlier today for myself but they don't seem to make it in women's. Anybody know anything different?

Re: Summer Riding Jacket

m620dark, if you're looking for something made for women try looking at the bmw rider gear... they make stuff specifically cut for women. my gf has a belstaff jacket and although it's really well made it is still cut for a small man... cuffs are too large, waist to low, arms a little long. there's a good chance that your bmw dealer will have something on the rack that you can try on also. she was so stoked that they had stuff that fit her. hth.

Re: Summer Riding Jacket

Hannah,

My kush-i-tani mesh would probably fit a woman pretty well; it has a adjustable belt on the back 4 inches above the bottom and just slightly shorter sleeves. It is da bomb. It fits me great. I have a size L. I originally ordered M, and it was too small. I wear a 40-42 jacket, so the M should fit a M size woman. I got mine from www.Kneedraggers.com, but you can get them at other places online...

Re: Summer Riding Jacket

I just picked up an Alpinestar T-Stunt Air-Flo jacket last night and it seems really nice so far. Good armoor, perfed/removable back pad, good airflow(hence the name)and a zip out windproof liner. I've done 2 hot, muggy rides and it is really comfy. The back pad can get a little warm stopped in the sun, but all in all a huge improvment over leather. All for 200 clams at the local Rice Haus.

Re: Summer Riding Jacket

Second the AGV Aerosport... got the idea from my MSF instructor who evidently had to "opportunity" to crash test one.

As far as chick-wear goes, I know Alpinestars has a whole line of 4W jackets that look sharp - am considering buying one for the woman.

Re: Summer Riding Jacket

I'm gettin' way behind here. Got to stop working so much :P

Anyway, for perfed leather on the (relatively) cheap....

I have Fieldsheer sport air jacket and pants. Not up to Vanson standards to be sure but I've been happy with if for a year. Still not as cheap as mesh or mesh/leather.

I was going to go with Joe Rocket Reactor. The perfed leather panels seemed to offer some more abrasion resistance as well as giving the jacket more structure to hold the armor in place. I didn't really like the way the all-mesh jackets I tried on felt; insecure.

But then I found the Fieldsheer at a Honda dealer that was plssed off at the company. He just wanted to dump his only jacket.. the one in my size. 'Course I then had to pay full boat for the macthing pants from New Enough.
