Thread: BMW lightweight summer jacket?

  1. #1

    BMW lightweight summer jacket?

    Rode with an RT rider the other day. He was wearing a lightweight zip up [ looked like cotton ] long sleeve jacket, bmw logo on front, nothing on the back.

    Looking through the gear shop, see nothing like it. It might be an older discontinued jacket, not sure, but I'd like to find one like he was wearing. I didn't think to ask him at the time.

    Leads? Suggestions? This appeared to be for moderate warm temps, certainly not a cold weather jacket.

    Thanks in advance

    It's going to be hard to guess without a picture.
    Was it a solid color or multi color?
    The only one I can think of that has a cotton look is the Venting Jacket.

    Another Light weight textile jacket is the Race Flow.

    Might also have been marketed to the bimmer folks. Yeah, BMW makes cars, too.

    I reached out to him today. He said he picked it up years ago, now discontinued. One of the best lightweight jackets I've seen. Good for cool to quite warm temps. Looked like a warm up baseball pitchers jacket, not a deep blue but not a robins egg blue either. Nearly the color of this forum headers dark color.

    Wish they made that jacket today.
