When I got my bike I wanted some proper apparel without breaking the bank, I turned to Ebay and ordered a few items. One of the first was a Generic Black/Gray Cordura Armored Jacket. The price (at slightly under $100 delivered) was excellent, and the colors matched the bike – seemed perfect. Delivery was amazingly fast (within a week).
I’ll admit that I was suitably impressed with the jacket when I first got it. It was plenty warm, comfortable and shed water nicely, but as the weather grew warmer I realized that despite the zip out liner in the jacket, there was NO venting AT ALL, resulting in my getting all melty (and flustered) any time I had to put the thing on in anything room temperature or above.
I still think it is an excellent spring/fall jacket (the lack of venting, and any interior pockets being the only two issues), but I’ve since replaced it with a Power Trip Mojave Mesh jacket (also armored and with removable liner) from Royal Distributing which is much, MUCH, more comfortable.
