More feedback would definitely be appreciated. I need to make a purchase fairly quickly and if this doesn't pan out, I may just try to find another set of perfed leathers instead.... that or risk the AST over the summer with some sort of cooling vest.
I've not compared it to the AST as far as protection.
I belive this jacket will be good year round in California. I look at the AST as something I will probably purchase for Winter and any North West Area Trips I make.
