    Textile jackets

    Hey all. Looking for a new jacket and thought I would get the collective wisdom of the forum. I am looking for a touring type textile jacket with good venting system in chest and arms. A jacket for all year riding. Not keen on mesh or perforated leather jackets. Budget not likely to stretch to Klim or Rukka so likely up to $600ish. Any ideas?
    Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead
    Do not walk ahead as I may not follow.
    Do not walk beside me as the path is narrow
    In fact FU*K off and leave me alone

    If I were in the market I would jump at this http://www.motomail.co.nz/estore/style/rejksand2.aspx

    The zips on the sleeve are vents and a range of colours to suit.

    Thanks for the recommendations everyone. Had a look at many different jackets and also had another look at the budget. Ended up buying a Klim Badlands jacket. Looking forward to getting out on the bike and trying it out

    I too have a Klim, about a year now. Ridden in most days. Still looks new.

    Enjoy.

    That was a very serious relook at the budget.

    I would not buy from a vendor that spams just like you have just done.
