This leather jacket is the next step toward staying cool when the heat is on the rise
Summer heat has settled in, and for those who had to deal with winter a little longer than they had hoped for the time has now come to complain about how darn hot it now is. Experienced riders know just how uncool (literally) riding can become when not even the breeze is a relief from the heat. We just sit there, slow-cooking in our jacket and gear, wondering what the cost of living in Alaska is like and how long it will take to get there. Leather jackets in particular can become heat traps, but Spidi has thankfully punched a hole into this issue.
