Paycheck came in, Need a jacket

Enough of the ugly pleather jacket of mine.. time to get one that looks nice. There is a cycle gear near where I live (Sugar Land). I was wondering where other shops might be around my area so I could take a look at their jackets?

I know I asked this before but I'll ask again. Im really long and skinny. If it fits my body, then the sleeves are too short, and if the sleeves are long enough, its way too baggy. Any jackets in particular that generally come more "fitted" than others? Hoping the fitted brands will fit normally on me.

you can get a nice fully perforated leather jacket. I wear one and it's like wearing a t-shirt ... unless of course when you are at a stop ... but still, a little discomfort beats road rash.

Go talk with Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited, he'll be more than happy to get you fitted properly.

USMC Spartan, what size is that jacket? It might not fit him, lol.

Leather is fine for me during the summer. I have an Alpinestars Stage jacket and while I get hot at times, I don't get too hot to make me not want to ride.

I'd rather be hot and sweaty than worry about a textile jacket coming apart if I happen to go down.

Go leather with CE armor at the shoulders and elbows, minimum. Look for some of the used ones for sale on this site to save yourself quite a bit of money.
