High Quality Moderate Weather Jacket
When I received the Jacket I was impressed with the quality and after taking it out for several rides now I am REALLY impressed. This is a great jacket for moderate weather. I have, of course, my heavy leather jacket for winter, and I have a thin mesh jacket for really warm weather but I felt I needed something in between and man did this jacket fit the bill. I live in an area where the temperature can vary by 20 to 25 degrees within 15 miles, and for at least half the time I was too hot in my leather jacket and too cold in my summer jacket. This jacket straddles the two temperature zones perfectly, and gives me a very, very comfortable ride throughout that temperature fluctuation. If you're looking for a jacket that's between hot and cold weather, you couldn't find a better one.

Elite Switchback Jacket
This is the Jacket we have been waiting for. Found the jacket at High Desert HD in Meridian, Idaho. It has multiple layers so we can add or take off what we need. I don't need to pack different jackets or sweatshirts for that long ride. The layers store great on the bike. I ordered my wives jacket online, cause the store didn't have her size. Now we can ride in cold, hot, or mild weather year round. Did I say this was a great jacket? Yes it is !!

Living in Hawaii, I needed a jacket with both great airflow and also wind blockage. During the summer, it's great to have the removable panels. It does get cold during winter and I needed to prevent cold air from hitting my stomach area. It is a great looking jacket but it does have a quirk that I didn't like. There is a bunched feeling of layers under your armpits. It also feels little tight around the lats. Just the right of amount of graphics. Not gaudy but shows your pride in riding your machine from the Motor Company.

This is really a 3 in one jacket for all year riding. With the panel removed I ride in the Georgia heat feeling like I don't even have a jacket. Put the panel back on for fall riding & open your vents. When it gets chilly put the rain liner in & you feel the difference the liner does knocking off wind. In light rain the jacket alone does great. In heavy rain add the liner & your dry as can be. Interior pockets are big. If you don't want to throw out the big bucks on a leather jacket & a mesh jacket for all year riding, this is the jacket for you.
