    Best Adventure Motorcycle Jacket???

    Hello guys,


    Thanks for accepting me in your group.
    I am a new rider and out in the market for an adventure motorcycle gear.
    I definitely don't want to spend a fortune. I saw Klim and some other brands such as Dainese Explorer, Revit Sand 3 and Siima Sibirsky Adventure.
    Currently i am between the last three as Klim is too expensive.
    What i really want from my gear is, first and foremost to protect me and then to be truly four season.

    Which of these would you recommend?

    Thanks in advance!


    Cheers!

    My opinion is that there is no true four (or even three) season motorcycle wear.

    A suit that's good for withstanding freezing January sleet is going to leave you boiling in hot, sticky August. A waterproof suit for rainy days is not going to vent like a good mesh jacket when it's hot and dry. An all-season suit is a compromise for all seasons.

    If you don't want to buy specific gear for each season then look into layering.

    - a base mesh or breathable layer with abrasion resistance and armor lets you ride in extreme heat
    - waterproof shell that you can pull on when it rains, doubles as a windproof layer for cold weather
    - warm base layer for colder days or early mornings
    - electric liners for extremely cold days

    A lot of the newer materials pack down real small. My waterproof shell folds up into the palm of my hand.

    Have a look at Aerostich, not cheap but not Klim priced.
