A snowboard jacket designed for motorcycling, the Icon Patrol Waterproof Jacket is a unique-looking jacket that nevertheless functions well on-bike and includes protection against the elements and, of course, crashing.
Why we like it: High quality and great looks works as well off the bike as on.
Less expensive competitor: The $220 Alpinestars Scion jacket is similarly styled, much less baggy and incorporates an innovative, removable mesh chassis for the armor. Considerably lighter material though.
You should also check out: The $400 Alpinestars Lance 3L is even nicer than the Patrol and cut to flatter slim bodies.
