I'm looking for any suggestions on the best enduro type jackets out there. I'm looking at Moose's XRC. Anything else I should consider? I'll use it for about 70% road and 30% off...Thanks in advance.

Joe Rocket makes a nice jacket. Elbow, back and shoulder pads with flow thru mesh for hot weather and a zip in liner also. There a are a couple of pockets. I ordered mine thru a local shop

First gear also makes one like the joe rocket. All mesh with a liner for chili weather. They are both excellent jackets that feel almost like wearing nothing.

I bought the '03 Impact and love it. I think those are gone.
They've still got some deals here: http://www.motorcycl...ut=1&Division=2

I and a few buddies of mine wear the Joe Rocket Ballistic 4.0 jacket for most of our off road riding. Comes with a zip out liner, elbow, back and shoulder pads plus plenty of pockets.

I also have a Joe Rocket, but it's the ballistic 3.0 and I like it a lot when the weather cools down. I was planning to buy a few more jackets as Christmas gifts and came upon this listing on eBay. The SpeedRag GMS jackets don't look too bad for the $59 price, but I've not seen them in person to know how nice they really are. Here's the link...

Thanks for the input...The Impact looks like the best one for me. The bad thing is Acerbis relocated to Salt Lake City since they merged with Scott USA and it appears that's put them behind schedule a bit. A few shops have said they're not getting their '05 jackets until Dec., and all the '04's in my size are gone. I'll make due until then.

Thanks again for the help. :cry:
