Anyone know of a good, warm jacket for fall and winter riding? I'm looking for jackets for me and my wife for an upcoming trip that'll keep us warm on the highway on those 40-50 degree mornings. TIA!

I've been running with "Tourmaster" (similar to the "Joe Rocket" but half the price). Mornings here have been in the mid 40's but I'm only driving about 15 miles to work on the highway. Secondary highways at night after work (which by the time I get home we're back to the mid 40s) at lower speeds and only wearing a T-shirt underneath and plenty warm. I'm sporting their Transition Series 2 that's got lots of vents, for the heat of the day, and tons of pockets. Tourmaster also sells heated liners that will fit their textile jackets, pants, and gloves. Haven't got a set of them yet but am planning to have them for the Spring (once the snow melts it's biking season!!!):D. Pasted in the links to make it easier.

I should've updated this:eek: I picked up River Road lined leather jacket with a removable thermal liner(I love leather:D) I've worn it on a couple of the mid-40 mornings we've had, nice and warm:D. I'll let ya know how it does when we hit the 30's.

My wife got the Scorpion Dahlia, so far she loves it and she's hasn't complained about the cold yet. Believe me, she'll be the 1st to complain about cold:D

I Love leather too especially for the cold weather. Cand beat leather to keep the wind and chill off, BUT it rains too much around here so I usually opt for a textile jacket for down to about 40. Anything colder requires leather for me.
I have a Joe Rocket Pheonix 5.0 jacket that does a great job.
Sounds like you found what you wanted though. I buy most al my wearables from http://www.newenough.com/ They are the best place I have found with great descriptions and great service.

At JC Penney's last night my wife and I saw some vintage motorcycle jackets on sale for about $30. They are brown with pin stripes running down the arms/shoulders. I've got another season or two on the jacket that I have now or I would have bought one myself. Don't know if they'll be found in every store but it's worth a look....
