    How cold can you still ride a motorcycle in a Schott 740N peacoat?

    Yeah, I started out looking for a more dedicated, thicker coat because I didn't think there existed an effective way to layer outside of Gore-Tex. Then I did a one-eighty when I found out about canvas and waxed canvas. I'm looking into different types of that right now, but if I can't make...

    How cold can you still ride a motorcycle in a Schott 740N peacoat?

    Thanks. The hooks on that other jacket give me pause. I'd have to see how it looks in person. If I get something with dedicated insulation, that reduces the usability in my situation, depending on how effective the insulation is. It means it won't be as versatile as I'd like, and I'd likely...

    How cold can you still ride a motorcycle in a Schott 740N peacoat?

    Something like this one could work, but it's too expensive and the insulation may affect my layering: https://hinoya.shop/en/products/br14684?_pos=14&_sid=e809b65b0&_ss=r The note about the zipper is worrying, too. But I'll definitely keep my eyes out for an N1 or A2 in jungle cloth to see if...

    How cold can you still ride a motorcycle in a Schott 740N peacoat?

    I think maybe I should provide an update of where I'm at, because it may be confusing considering the different directions I've gone, and it's not the same as the opening post anymore. Currently: I have a Gore-Tex shell which can be worn on its own or with various liners depending on how cool...

    How cold can you still ride a motorcycle in a Schott 740N peacoat?

    Unless I'm missing something, Buzz Rickson N1 deck jackets all have an obvious USN on the front. They also look a little too aged/worn/vintage/authentic for my wife to want to walk next to me. We saw some the other day, and she wasn't impressed. I think she'd be okay with one which was neater...

    How cold can you still ride a motorcycle in a Schott 740N peacoat?

    A jungle cloth N1 would be fine, but I don't like all the military regalia on a lot of the ones I see. And other ones start to get pricey.

    There are a large number of people on here who have contributed excellent information and suggestions to my request, and I am extremely grateful to and appreciative of all of them.

    Can I ask why you mention Barbour International for the Scooter? Is there something different about those ones?

    How cold can you still ride a motorcycle in a Schott 740N peacoat?

    Carhartt WIP has a few stores here, and I'm trying to find reviews of their 12oz Dearborn canvas. I did find a guy last fall who was bringing in some regular Carhartt workwear shirts to kind of cash in on the streetwear's popularity, but he didn't have any jackets. I probably could special...

    How cold can you still ride a motorcycle in a Schott 740N peacoat?

    Actually, my wife and I went to a shopping center today which is a little further away, and stumbled across a Barbour store. We very seldom go to that place, so I had no idea the store was even there. They had a few waxed jackets, so I tried one on. It was too big--and too expensive--but it...

    How cold can you still ride a motorcycle in a Schott 740N peacoat?

    Thanks. If I were riding long distances on the highway, I would consider leather. But there are really only a few styles I like, and none of them are exactly motorcycle jackets. I'm also not a fan of the really tight look of jackets which are purposely designed for motorcycle riding. And...

    How cold can you still ride a motorcycle in a Schott 740N peacoat?

    I don't want this thread to get derailed any more than it already has been. While it's unfortunate that navetsea had to make his post, he is correct in describing how the realities of Asian traffic differ from European and North American traffic. I'm comfortable with someone making a general...

    How cold can you still ride a motorcycle in a Schott 740N peacoat?

    Thanks. She may find it sticky and smelly, though (she's fussy about things like that). I think there are too many unknowns for me to commit that much money to something she may or may not be thrilled with. It's unfortunate, because each new idea I pursue gets less and less classy. I still...

    How cold can you still ride a motorcycle in a Schott 740N peacoat?

    I've thought of something else that I haven't been factoring in with the waxed canvas jackets: my wife rides on the back. She may find the material sticky, and the wax may heat up and transfer if she's pressed up against me, as she's wont to do. It's a shame, because some of those Filson...

    I may have written off waxed jackets too soon. Can someone tell me how wind-resistant Filson's Tin Cloth is, and how sticky and smelly the wax effect is?

    Don't do this. That's not what this thread is about, and you know it. However, if you genuinely are interested in discussing the topic of road safety in Asia outside of this particular thread, you are of course free to do so.

    How cold can you still ride a motorcycle in a Schott 740N peacoat?

    That's a nice-looking coat and pretty close to what I'm after. It seems to be cheaper from retailers, but I suspect the safety features and the work to incorporate them are putting it over budget for me. The picture that Liveinstyle33 posted just above is closer to how people here dress (+ a...

    Some sort of lined duck canvas could work, too. I'll see what I can research in the next couple of days, then maybe come back if I have more questions. Thanks, everyone!

    How cold can you still ride a motorcycle in a Schott 740N peacoat?

    Thanks! I'm reluctant to go with waxed cotton because I've read there's a smell. I'm not sure what that particular style in that picture is called, but that's definitely not me. It's too much of a motorcycle vibe for what I'm looking for. Maybe picture the sharpness/smartness/classiness of a...
