    3/4 length mesh jackets...........what options are there

    Hello,

    I'm thinking about a 3/4 length mesh jacket to replace my old, poorly fitting Gericke jacket. The Tourmaster Sonora Air jacket seem like a decent product, but I can't find any other alternatives. Any suggestions? I want to keep the cost at, or below, the $200 range.

    I picked up a rev'it Ignition II jacket this spring to use as my spring, summer fall jacket, I have a stich I wear when it is not warm. I have put about 5,000 miles on it and I'm very impressed. Solid construction with leather in the impact areas and a very high quality mesh in front with fantastic arm vents.

    I found one at a shop for $100 off list!

    That doesn't look 3/4 length to me.

    I went with the MOTOPORT 3/4 length jacket. Kevlar mesh, good protection, comfortable and yes pricey
