Just wanted to see what type of leather jackets you all have and would suggest as far as everyday riding. It stays pretty warm here and would like to get anyone's opinion on what brand you feel would work and be comfortable?

Cortech mesh jacket works for me

Not leather but it looks good - Got it from newenough.com a few years ago & it comes with nylon & padded liners - great for cool mornings! To hijack your thread but can anyone explain why I take a XX or XXXL in everything except for leather jackets or vests where all of a sudden a 5x doesn't even come close? I have jackets & shirts from 10 years ago that are XXL that still fit fine but the new XXL wouldn't even go on my arm!

I have a Wilson's riding jacket but it's pretty heavy even without the liner. I only use it on really cold days. Otherwise I use an Icon Timax 2 perforated textile jacket for summer days.

I notice that too, I wear XL t-shirts but my jackets are XXL or XXXL depending on brand.

They got some pretty cool stuff. Really reasonable. I bought one of the nylon jackets with armor and it's pretty nice. Just make sure you order 2 sizes bigger than normal.
