Perforated or Not?

Hey guys. This month I'm going to order my jacket from Dianese but I'm wondering if I should get the perforated version or not.

The price is the same, so that isn't an issue. It should be a cold winter and I don't know if I want to get this jacket in the light of winter, or being a year round jacket.

If I get the perforated, I'm afraid it may be a bit cold for the winter still and being leather, still too hot for me to want to wear in the summer.

If I don't get it perforated, it should be fine in the winter, but definitely too hot for the summer.

So should I just get the non perforated since chances are I'm not going to want to wear it during the summer anyway?

Very good suggestion. That's exactly what I was thinking really, I just wanted some more opinions.

Thanks wave

I have a perforated leather I use in heavy winter and light spring. I just put a longsleeve under it. Works well for me.

I'd get perforated as well. I wear a heavier textile jacket in the coldest months.

True. I just remember when I used to wear my textile Fieldsheer during the winter, I would freeze my off. That's an easy fix though with a pair of thermal underwear, especially since this one is leather it won't be quite the same I imagine.

My textile is a waterproof Fieldsheer with a full liner so it stays nice and warm in the winter.

Ahhh, perfect. The Fieldsheer I used to have only had the wind breaker liner, so you can imagine it didn't do much for the cold of winter :(

Thanks for the suggestion. I'm really leaning towards the perforated now.

I have 2 fully perforated Vanson jackets. They are hot in the summer and cold in the winter.
However, they are not as hot as an unperforated jacket and in the winter I can wear a pullover windproof outer shell and be warm. The shell traps air in the jacket and is very warm on chilly days.
When I went moto camping in Colorado a couple weeks ago, it was pretty cold in the mornings and with a sweatshirt, the Vanson and the shell I was toasty.
My vote is perf'd. (otherwise I wouldn't have bought the second jacket)

Props to Lunsford's Honda

That's where I bought my Ducati, I e-mailed asking if they could get a jacket so I can try it on, to my surprise they have 3 in stock

I go, try it on, they take care of me.

Couldn't have went better.

Thanks again guys!

good choice on preforated. I have an A* that is not and I still have to wear warmer clothing even with the leather jacket.

Good to know! Makes me feel better about my purchase! I know today isn't the warmest of days but on the ride back to work, it was NOT warm at all. A pretty ideal temperature inside this jacket

Winter should be good to go, just wear a thermal undershirt and no problems... summer should be bearable as well from what I've felt so far, all 30 minutes of it

Perforated. When it's cold, you can always wear a thin sweater or an under armour thermal.
