Cortech is a good jacket.
When checking out jackets, look at the seam construction, quality of the materials and armor.
See how it fits sitting on a bike, not just standing in front of the mirror.

I really like some of Fieldsheers' stuff. It's got a removable liner and has excellent armor. It's what I wear personally as well.

FWIW; As far as New Enough or a lot of the internet places go, I match / beat their pricing all the time.
Plus New Enough is in Texas so you still have to pay taxes as well as shipping.

Come by and we can measure you / have you try on some gear to make sure you get the correct size, don't forget to say you're on MH!

just try to stay away from frank thomas! The jackets are comfortable but the stichins has always been kinda iffy, starts to come apart after a few months on the sleeves. other than that the jackets have been great, a-stars run narrow in the shoulders so i can never fit into one always in between sizes but are awsome jackets.

I just bought a brand new leather off Ebay, with a removeable liner. I'll let y'all know how it is when I get it, but it was $135 shipped.
105% money back guarantee, plus unconditional 2 year warranty. CE Armor in elbows, shoulders and back.

Hey Patrick, as soon as I have the funds available I'll be by to pick up that A-stars Stage you have there. Want leather, but something cool enough (or a close as possible) to wear in the summer, seems to look like it would fit the bill...

I bought one of these about 8 months ago and it is doing well. It is not mesh but does have zip open panels for better breathing when it is warm (100+). I have ridden with the liner zipped in down to low 50's and down into the mid 30's with liner and a light fleece . I use it year round. It is not a bad way to go.
