Need A Summer riding Jacket??

Postby sooznd on Tue Apr 20, 2010 2:23 pm

Sale Alert!!!

If you are looking for a summer riding jacket, New Enough has some on closeout @ great prices. I have ordered from them before--fast shipping and you can return if they don't fit. Quality is new, but may be last year's fashion model.
I am going for the bright yellow Contour---I really need more visibility than my black mesh jacket offers.


These links are to women's jackets, New Enough has many mens' jackets on closeout, too.

The Corazzo Ventata is a great summer vented jacket, a bit spendy but very nice.

Corazzo makes well made & stylish jackets. However after being hit by a truck while on my scooter, I want something brighter and more visible.

Any jacket can have reflective material added.

reflective material doesn't help much in the daytime...

Since most of those are sold out now, does anybody have any recommendations in the 'under $50' category for summer jackets? My winter leather is getting to be a bit much but I don't want to be riding in a t-shirt.
Not actually from Texas.

The store that used to be called New Enough, noted in the first post of this thread is now called MotorcycleGear. It still offers great closeouts and you have many choices of textile, leather or mesh summer riding jackets. Try looking at these pages and pick a style, weight and price that works for you:
