    Jacket Decision

    I am narrowing the purchase of a new jacket down to an Aerostitch Advanced or a Hein Gericke Timbuktu. Both seem to have comparable quality and are within the same relative price range. Does anybody have any pros or cons on them. Or, have I overlooked another brand other than First Gear that would be comparable? Thanks for your help.

    I don't know what your budget is, but there isn't a better jacket than the Rukka APR3. I've had the Darien and the Tourmaster and Joe Rocket, and...and...the APR3 is hands down the best.

    I've always liked the look of the Timbuktu. And First Gear makes Hein Gericke, and I've liked the First Gear products that I've bought. Here's a nice review of the Timbuktu from Just open the page and scroll down to "Paul's Comments."
