is this jacket too much?


Recommended Posts

My advice, if you're getting your first bike jacket, is to get a textile one. They deal with cold and wet far better than leather - it's nice to have a decent leather jacket to wear in the summer- but a vented leather in the cold and rain is really no fun.



It's a nice looking jacket though :) (If you can handle the ladies zip)

would you still say this if you knew that in my country the temp never goes below 0 and doesn't rain that often.

That just makes us jealous!! :lol: :lol:


Go for leathers. For the small amount of rain you do get you can buy a simple rainproof over suit.

Govt gave me £1k to go to Coventry uni a few years back. Only stayed the first year :lol:




I say go for the jacket. If you like it and can afford it then buy it. Like someone else has already said you can never have enough protection.


And thats only a tiny hump, you should see mine :lol:
