More old Dririder Gold Series jacket is nearing the end of it's useable life. The black had faded across the upper back and shoulders, velcro has torn loose of its stitching, and it no longer keeps me dry in heavy downpours. When you combine my increased annual mileage for the daily commute with the jacket's lack of any body armor, the getting wet in a downpour was the last straw. I need a new jacket! I ride a CBR600F4 all year in Canberra, so temperatures from -7C up to 37C. And I tend to get around at a reasonable pace on the safer roads, so some protection is certainly warranted. I've been eyeing off the Dririder Summit2 jacket, the Force Tech? jacket (can't find anything on the Net about this jacket), and the Dririder Rallycross jacket (with optional kit) as they seem to be the only jackets that MIGHT meet an all year requirement. Venting in summer is particularly important when you are wearing a business shirt and tie to work and don't want large sweat stains on arrival after getting stuck in traffic (or what passes for traffic here anyway). Am I asking too much of one jacket? If not, which one would suit best? Does the Summit2 get enough airflow with the vents open and liner removed? Advice please.
