Default Which riding jacket for under $150

Hey all...im looking to purchase a riding jacket before spring time and i was wondering which jacket some of your wear for under $150. I was looking at some of the Fieldsheer jackets, any opinions on these? Let me know what you wear in that price range and how you like it!! Thanks

You should go and try some on and pick the jacket by fit, comfort, and price range. I looked for a 150 dollar jacket and didn't have any luck on one I liked so you might want to go look at them in person if you havent yet.

I had this one http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...rt-Jacket.aspx for a bit. Kept me comfortable but never went down in it. The fit was a bit snug. If I ever road in cooler temps with it I dont think I would have been able to put it on with a sweater under it. But I upgraded to an Icon leather for the extra protection.

I bought a Fieldsheet Bullet-Tex jacket last fall. I have only ridden in it once or twice, but it is EXTREMELY warm during the winter (I just wear it and a longsleeve T-Shirt) and it is comfortable in 50* weather. I think that taking the liner out and opening the vents in the summer will prove that it is wearable up through the upper 80's.... Reviews said that some people rode with it well into the low 90's.

Don't skimp on protective gear. Save up and get a decent leather.

Only jackets for around $150 I would buy are closeouts on last year or previous designs. My Joe Rocket that retailed for nearly $300 I got for $150, its perforated leather. My Teknic leather I got for $169.

Measure yourself with a tape measure and check all of the size charts for each manufacture before you even consider which brand to buy... if it doesn't fit right you're wasting your money. Coincidentally, Fieldsheer was the one that was supposed to fit me best. It fits great and I love it. Its pretty good quality I've worn it atelast three days a week with a backpack since October or so and it still looks new except for one fuzzy thread on the left wrist from putting the damn backpack on. It is both warm and cool I wear it when its 80 degrees or 40 degrees with the liner it came with. I'm definately buying another one when this one wears out

I wear a teknic jacket I got on closeout for $40. Had to modify it a little bit for coolness but great jacket other than that.
