I am buying a new custom made MC jacket and I need to decide on whether to get a 3/4 cut or a waist cut. I guess there are advantages to both.
The way I See it a 3/4 cut gives you a little more protection from the elements and you don't have to zipper it to your pants for slide protection. The waist cut is better in summer and looks better, but you need to zipper it to your pants for full protection if you go down. Others have told me that the 3/4 is more uncomfortable when riding as it tends to ride up and bunch up.
