Rated 5 out of 5 by TKiisel Great Jacket
I bought this jacket about a year ago and it's been with me from the Grand Canyon to the Bear Tooth Pass. I didn't think too much about the waterproof leather until I spent 3 days in constant drizzle in mid-May headed to the South Rim. I didn't bother with the rain-gear, because this bad boy kept me warm and dry. The high mountain passes can get cool even in the summer, so if this jacket wasn't being worn, it was in the tour pack. Would I buy this jacket again? Without question. Fits great, looks great, feels great with and without the lining or a soft-shell underneath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BlackPearl Looks great!
I get a lot of compliments on the look my jacket. The XLT fits me great (6' 4" tall). Plenty of pockets and very versatile with the zip out lining. However, the sleeves are a little scratchy without the lining in. I would buy it again.

This was my first waterproof leather jacket, and I am very happy with it. I live in Philadelphia and bought it for a trip out west. Just got back - 5,450 miles and 14 states in 12 days. This jacket saw it all, day, night, hot, cold, rain, sun. W/ the vents, the jacket is comfortable up to 90F (liner out, of course). With the liner in, I was more than warm enough at 12,200 feet at 43F in the rain with only a long sleeve t-shirt underneath. In other words, with the liner in it is warm! It is VERY convenient to not have to put on an additional jacket for rain. The only think I forgot to do a couple of times was zipper the additional rain flap underneath the main zipper (there are basically 2 front zippers, and you need to zip the inner one when it rains). If you forgot, you get a little moist around the zipper. W/ the extra zipper closed, the jacket is amazing. I did an iron butt on the last day, 1010 miles, the last 275 in off and on torrential downpours in the dark - jacket kept me bone dry. It is hard for one jacket to do everything well, but this one gets closer than I thought possible! I would highly recommend it, especially for those who do touring and/or live in rainy climates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pave Very nice winter/half season jacket
This jacket fits perfectly and it's very comfortable in all riding position. Very good protection and a lot of pockets for every needs. Excellent for winter time. Without the liner it's still good for early spring/late fall. Way to warm for summer if you're planning to have as the only riding jacket.
