Alpinestars makes good gear. You can't go wrong with any of their leathers. It's sturdy, durable, and it's got a removable liner for hot/cold weather. Some of the jackets have zippered vents on the sleeves too. My only gripe with Alpinestars is that their retared front zipper always breaks off from constant use. Happens with some Dainese stuff as well. Fine Italian craftsmanship I guess.

I just bought the new 05 Alpinestar jacket. It has a thick inner lining vest that deffinatly keeps you warm but at the same time the jacket has some vents so you dont die of heat in those hot days. Im happy with it

i picked up the Icon motorhead jacket. It has zippered vents and removable inner liner, i think its warm, i live in maine and i've been riding in 40-50 degree weather w/ out the liner and i stay pretty warm, so the liner can only make it better. pretty sweet jacket and it was less than $350
