I have two:

Dainese Mugello STR leather.... Mainly for the fit. The perforation is nice on it, and it's just a comfortable jacket that feels like the armor is in the right place. There are a few things about it I don't like though.
*No liner
*doesn't have a tail
*Have to pay extra for back protector
dnse mugello str lthr jkt blkblk LG

Dainese Leather Racing Pelle is my other one. To me this is almost a perfect jacket. Leather is soft, amazing safety features. This one has a tail as well as reflective markings on the back. Also a key feature that I love... the back of the collar is a cloth material that rests against the neck without irritation. Fit is amazing, and has comfortable movement. Once again the things I didn't like about it.....Still doesn't have a liner, and requires an additional purchase for back protector..... Only things keeping it from being perfect.
racing

As far as summer jackets.... I'm still in the market for one. I love the Icon Arc because it has leather in the arms, shoulders, and back.

I like the looks, the fit, the protection and the versatility. I like the fact that the inner arms and sides zip out. This comes in handy as the day warms up. I can zip those sections out and put them in a inside pocket in the back so I can continue riding in comfort.

Alpinestars Stunt: It's a good, quality leather jacket. Fits very well and is comfortable. Breathes well in the summer. http://www.alpinestars.com/Stunt_Lea.../p/310149.html

310149 black l

Also bought a Frank Thomas XTi II series waterproof jacket. I bought it for rain (duh), but it's also insanely warm with the liner inside. Although it offers less protection than my Astar leather jacket.

Fieldsheer Razor 2.0. I don't think they're selling that one anymore, but they probably have a new model to replace it.

It's a perforrated leather jacket. I got it because I like Fieldsheer and I liked the styling, and it was the right price. To me, Fieldsheer is one of the best bang for your buck brands. I can usually find them with all the features I'm looking for at really good prices compared to other brands.

Plus, I've crash tested my previous jacket, which was a FS textile jacket, and it held up pretty well IMO. Only one area the stitching started pulling apart, but no skin ever made contact with with the pavement/gravel, even though my leather gloves (Teknic) tore across the palm and my hand was missing a flap of skin.

Depends on the weather and my mood

Have a couple of Xpert jackets. Not a popular brand with sport bike riders - more of a cruiser jacket. One is the "traditional" motorcycle jacket with the diagonal zipper and a crapload of pockets, the other is a more sedate European looking version. Most people dont even realize it is a motorcycle jacket.

Joe Rocket Alter Ego for the extreme heat

Tourmaster Transitions for general all around wear.

I like pockets - lots of em - most of the time. Next one will likely be a First Gear Kilimanjaro

Icon TiMax mesh for summer, I love titanium and have lots of stuff made out of it (including wedding band) so it was just fitting though it's a little loose in the midsection even with all the adjustments at their tightest. Textile Kawasaki jacket (came with the bike) for winter though, I can put the liner in either jacket if it's just a cool morning and is going to heat up later in the day.
