Smile in ned of new summer riding jackets.

Looking for information on what summer jackets everyone is using and/or not to get.

I now have Belstaf summer jacket. It was ok, but there must be new and better out there now.

Any and all suggestion will be helpful.

My wife and I have the new BMW Airflow 3 Jackets and the venting machine pants. Absolutely LOVE them. It has been in the upper 90's and humid here in Knoxville the last couple of weeks and I have been comfortable on the way home.

x2 2005 K1200LT, 1999 R1100S. All 3 sold. No bikes currently...

I'm using the Olympia Airglide II. Very comfy at high temps, and also warm and watertight when its ugly out. The silver/gray color is light enough that it doesn't get baled in the sun. I'll be buying another tomorrow; the XXL one I got last week is a tad too big.

Hot Weather Jacket

For hot weather riding, I have

a BMW Venting Jacket and
a REV-IT Air Force Textile Jacket

Page 72 of on-line catalog.

Love both.

I bought the Airflow 3 pants and jacket this spring and am very happy with my purchase. Max temp was 97F on the way to West Bend and the lowest was 52 in June at PEI. Below 75F I add a light long sleeve shirt under the jacket and my rain suit jacket at night below 68F. Nice knee armor with adjustable height feature. I do sit on beads and stay cool.

Just bought one of these. I have not been able to try it out yet. Had a little fire incident and waiting for my leg to heal. I am impressed with the quality of the jacket. It is custom fitted, which is a big deal if you are my size(6'4" and 300 lbs). I will let you know as soon as I try it out.
