I've got an Alpinstars Venom Jacket for the colder times/or when riding harder.
And for the summer I've got the Icon Ti-Max Mesh jacket to stay cool but still have decent protection.

yeah if not for the fact they were free, i would not have these gloves. when i took the motorcycle saftey course i used a pair of franklin batting gloves and they worked great.

Icon Ti-Max Mesh jacket

i was shopping up in colubmus at irony pony and saw the Icon Ti-Max Mesh jacket for about 225. and looked for it on ebay and i think its going for about 165, i like the feel for that jacket but seems like it would be little too cool for some riding at night or when weather gets around 50s or so, the firstgear trekker i tried that on and it seems too bulky and heavy so right now im b/w the Icon Ti-Max Mesh jacket or Gericke Aero-X leather mesh not sure which one would be better, both offer good protection,
