Who said that must wear black when you ride in difficult weather conditions and that you must buy your gear from a powersports clothing manufacturer?
Some good rugged, rain repellent and wind and tear resistant clothing is available at cheaper prices.
What about a Field Coat (Model M-65 featured) as used by our military during the past 3 decades and that many of you may have worn in Vietnam. It’s 50% cotton, 50% nylon with a nylon outer shell, concealed hood with a zippered front closure and snap cover. It costs only $100. Or this iconic army flight jacket called “The 45/P Nomex” constructed with a special fire-retardant NOMEX fabric that protects military pilots and air-crew members from intense heat…or fire. By the way, if you ride a vintage/old school motorcycle, you could dress this way to make your bike look even better. Shop Alpha Industries.
