For true autumn motorcycling comfort, though, consider an ADV-style textile jacket. Lightweight, versatile, and usually waterproof, they’re generally no more expensive than a quality leather jacket and far more effective at keeping you dry, warm, or even cool. Built for extreme, all-season riding, they usually include armor and removable liners, along with multiple pockets and superior venting. Most have adjustable sizing, and some even have rain hoods tucked away in their collars. The styles have evolved too—they aren’t all big and boxy anymore. And their details and color schemes have grown up; stick with bright and colorful if you ride somewhere gray like the Pacific Northwest, or if you prefer to blend in, try black, brown, gray, or stylish olive.
