Re: what kind of jackets are you girls got?

Leather or textile?

I have Scorpion and Icon jackets so far, of both types of fabric. Really like them both.
Scorpion nip/tuck

icon hella crossbones

both have a good amount of ties/belts to fit the jacket to you. Scorpion held up in a low side so far, haven't tested out the Hella.

Re: what kind of jackets are you girls got?

my leather jackets:
corsa alstare/corona replica
icon kitty

textile:
icon merc

both fit well. a* is good too but women's sizes generally run pretty small so make sure she tries them on.

joe rocket has some decent gear too that a lot of women like, but i've found that the armor, especially in the shoulders, doesn't fit as snuggly as i'd like.

Re: what kind of jackets are you girls got?

My recycled jacket from my F4i is a Joe Rocket Blaster 2.0


The gsxr came with the Icon Bombshell


Both are good jackets, and I think that Icon has made a turn for the better. They were always more pretty than practical, but they have padded up a little more than a few years ago....

Re: what kind of jackets are you girls got?

If money is an issue, check out newenough.com, especially their closeouts section. They have some great deals & perfect service (including great return policy). And no one beats their reviews, commentary, and additional photos of the gear!

I have the Cortech LNX leather & it's held up very well, but most are sold-out now. Great for all except the hottest conditions (like 90 deg. in slow traffic).

my gf doesnt have a jacket but by the looks of the title of this thread you should probably buy tuition to an english class before you spend $ on the jacket

Re: what kind of jackets are you girls got?

Totally go with leather! look at the A* rc1! I've had a few leather jackets, the RC1 is the most comfortable and best fitting!

edit: sorry... maybe I should read the original post better first! haha!
Although, my wife rides with a Frank Thomas xTi jacket... it's a nice jacket and fits her well...

Re: what kind of jackets are you girls got?

Here is what my wife wears... We have been in 90* weather for 2-3 hours with it on and she stays much color than me. It does seem to stain easily being white though. I THINK it was around 169...

I got my wife the cortech lrx jacket. Its very nice for the price. It has vents and a zip out liner for the summer. She likes it and says its very comfortable. It was 145 from kneedraggers.com.

I've got a textile Joe Rocket (actually on sale now!) Kept me warm in the 40 degree temps here last week.
