I really like the Aerostich Darien jacket, but am looking for something a bit more affordable that is still high quality.
I'm looking for a waterproof do-anything textile (not leather) jacket. I want good abrasion resistance (obviously) and am a touring/sport-touring rider who also commutes. I'd like to be able to wear the jacket year-round, every day, so venting is a must for the 90-100 degree days. Not overly concerned about having a liner, I already have a fleece liner that I could use with the jacket. I don't need all the pockets and what-not, either, just looking for the basics. I want to replace my Gore-Tex rain jacket with a real riding jacket that offers real protection that I can wear all the time.
Does such a thing exist at a price I can afford?
