Been looking around recently for a leather jacket for winter riding here in Brisbane. Aside from the obvious style points that not looking like a sodden black marshmellow getting off the bike which happens with my current textile jacket, I'm looking for something which breaths, has decent movement (as I'd likely have to wear it around uni to a degree) and which is preferably waterproof. The last i'm willing to compromise on since I have a limited budget and would be looking around the $600 mark. Searching around the one I've liked the most so far on style, build/design quality and comfort was the a* smk-1. I know it has fabric panels, but can anyone give any real review on how these go in the wet, and how it handles the heat? or if there are any other good alternatives out there?
