As the weather seems to rise I found myself unable/willing to ride with my leather jacket. So last night I went to Peter Steven and got myself a RST Ventilator Jacket jacket. I narrow it down to three brand A) Alpinestar =$300 Shift=$300 C) RST=$250 I didn't go for the Alpine because it's made in vietnam (I'm from Vietnam). What you buy is what you get, no adjustment. I did'nt go for the Shift because it was to big for me and you can't adjust any of the padding. So I went for the RST Ventilator Jacket you can adjust almost all of the padding and take them out to wash the jacket. IMO its the better made than all the other. It also has the thero, rainproof jacket with it. You can mix and match the three jackets depending on the weather. I took it riding today in hot weather and found it to be excellent, not as cool as a t-shirt but is give the kind of protection no t-shirt can.
