I have the KTM enduro light jacket , it's a good jacket for enduro stuff not much of and adventure jacket as it has too much ventilation , but the is a KtM enduro jacket with liners NB compatible not sure if it has removable sleeve like it little brother .

I also have the ktm adv jacket , excellent jacket but not NB comparable , some time I take the liner out and use in the enduro jacket ,


P.s. I never wear my NB but I have one

I use the Alpinestars jacket that goes with their neck brace. Works well, but I prefer the Dririder adv jacket for ventilation in the warmer months, or just wear the brace and body armour and tshirt

So here's a list

Axo
Alpine star
Acerbis
Klim
Ktm
Kenney
Troylee
Honda
Leatte
Jt racing
Fox
Scott
Spidi
And the list goes on



So as you can see most if not all major brands have jackets now , its the Aussie importers that don't bring them in .

Do you already have a particular brace?

I have a Leatt brace and have done the dririder thing, but imho it's still a compromise. I've also worn it outside other jackets, but it sits too high for me then. I now wear it with a pressure suit and my current jacket over the top and partially open, which is great in the heat, but not so good otherwise.

Have you bought a brace yet? If not, do you need a brace compatible jacket, or a brace that will work over a jacket? I'm looking at the Omega S1 at the moment, as it's designed to work over a jacket and it will probably cost the same a same as buying a jacket.

The Atlas looks possible and might be another alternative for this, but when I contacted PPS Moto they said it's really designed to be worn under armour as per other braces.

.

I wear it over the Dri Rider with a pressure suit underneath. I had to the put the longer side brackets in and reverse the rear stay so it wouldn't sit high. My hydration pack holds it all in place. I do have the adjustable brace though, I don't think you can do it with the adventure brace.

they are all mainly enduro jackets. I've got a scott jacket that I wear with the leatt neck brace. I wore it last year when we did the CSR and it was fine - but wouldn't wear it riding in winter in southern NSW or Vic. needs better water proofing & warmer liners

I'm after the adventure style jacket with liners that will take a neck brace. only one that seems to do that is the klim adventure jacket, ktm rally jacket & leatt adventure jacket (although it is still pretty close to an enduro jacket)

The Alpinestars Durban adventure jacket is compatible with thier bionic neck brace, it's worn over the top of the jacket, which has elastic loops to keep it in place. The jacket has a single gortex liner with some insulation, so it needs to be layered with mid & base layers for cold weather

Just had a look on their website and it says they don't ship the ktm jackets internationally.

AXO Stone jacket
http://www.axo.com/us/stone-jacket

The new Axo Stone jacket is a dual sport winner. It takes the previous AXO Enduro jacket, and adds more vents, more pockets, heavier fabric, better liner, holder for hydration, CE armor, and Leatt compatibility*. This is the perfect 50/50 dirt / street (or 60/40) dual sport jacket.

Dirt: the Stone is rugged enough and cut correctly to use off road. Fabric is sturdy, and the cut is slightly loose. This allows the jacket to fit over armor, and to flow air even when moving slowly. Sleeves are removable, and words cannot describe how awesome this feature is. There are a lot of vents, and while we wish they were bigger (as we always do) they are not small. Pockets are well located and large. The jacket does not restrict movement at all.

Street: The Stone has a 3/4 cut that blocks wind on extended slab. The cuffs and collar seal up perfectly, the Stone has perhaps the best executed collar of any jacket we sell. There is enough room for add'l layers, but there are adjustments at the arms and waist to cinch. Those numerous pockets are great on the road too.

A word on Leatt compatibility: this feature is more awesome for use without a brace. Why? On hot days you can remove the area around the collar, stuff it in the pocket, and be much more cool and comfortable.
