Help me choose

Ok - so I'm looking for a new jacket for "winter" (such as it is down here) and have narrowed it down to the following:

Rev'It Outback

BMG Challenger

Tourmaster Transition 3

and...

Triumph Adventure Jacket

They're all about the same price, give or take a few bucks. They all have similar features and their own unique take on a couple things. I'm open to other suggestions too but those are my leaders at the moment.

Anyone have any experiences with any of these which could help me make my decision? I'm personally familiar with Tourmaster, so they're a known quantity.

I had a Tourmaster Transiton. Good winter jacket that I liked ok. Personally I feel the Rev it is a much better quality jacket, based on the ones I have seen and tried on. The BMW dealer on way to Galveston is one of few Rev it dealers around.

I know of a rider who bought an entire Tourmaster suit and his second time wearing it a deer ran into his bike going about 65. He had VERY few injuries - worst being a separated shoulder. The gear did its job perfectly.

The Tourmaster has the best back protector of the bunch, that alone would be the deciding factor for me.

Yep - i found out how well their stuff works myself a few weeks ago.

I'm leaning pretty heavy to the Tourmaster as it is.

I've got a rev'it sand jacket and it is pretty good as an all-season jacket. It ventilates really well during the summer, and the thermal liner is more than enough for Texas. The only downside is the shell is only semi-waterproof. The rain liner works to keep you dry, but the shell soaks in water after a time. The materials and assembly are high quality also.

I'd try one on before buying though, the cut is slimmer than most other brands.
