FirstGear Scout IV Jacket Despite the vast selection we have for riding jackets, I always come back to the basics: simple, black leather. The leather jacket has been around since the dawn of motorcycles, and it will persist despite advancements in textiles. No one ever buries their face in their new textile jacket to breath in the aroma of chemicals, but leather has a look, a feel, and a smell that we all know.

The leather jacket has come a long way. Firstgear's Scout IV jacket is heavy 1.3 mm to 1.4 mm leather with Kwik-Dry water resistance for all-weather riding. A full Thermoliner holds in body heat but lets out humidity, and C.E. approved armor in the elbows and shoulders offer security to the rider.

Leather gets toasty, so vents in the chest, cuffs, and back will let air flow up the arms and around the torso -- but 2-way zipper systems give you control over how much. A soft neck covering extends up the neck and chin when you need it, but will tuck away when you don't.

So, along with ample pockets, double stitching, and a 10-year warranty, this is not your great grandfather's riding jacket. The Scout IV, however, is still a classic leather in function and appearance. Technological advances have made it safer and more comfortable, but the soul of the motorcycle jacket remains the same. This is a solid buy for fit, form, and function.
