That looks pretty dang sharp. If they made one in brown, my credit card might be shaking in my pocket.

I already have an awesome black trench... just doesn't have armor under it.

Looks good! Now being the practical type - how does it work while riding a scoot. Does the bottom of the coat flap around?

No.

"You" sit on some of it (making sure there is room to move around) and it stays put.

the bottom sides also have a zipper on both sides to allow the coat more flexabilty when sitting on a scoot, not all bunched up. My loves hers.

delectable
Just got Ms Delectable an XS (no pics yet: apologies, boys .. and girls).

Seems fine for Sydney winter rides (around 15 - 20C / 60 - 70F) with a light, turtle-neck wool jumper underneath - even with the vented back panel. Will need a polarfleece ( a slim one - it fits oh! so nicely .. ) if it gets much colder (rare for Sydney, but it does get chilly in the mountains).

So far it has got rave reviews from other women riders - so streets-ahead in style and fit (oh, and Ms Delectable definitely has a model figure, even if slighty shorter: 5'2" / 90lbs in US money - 155cm / 40kgs here). It's so slimming that it makes the Tempeste (my previous benchmark) look bulky.

Like all style jackets, it won't be completely rain-proof given the neck closure .. but we scoot mostly in dry to damp weather (not in howling storms) and my similar Postale neck is fine for 20mins in moderate showers. We'll still keep rainsuits in the scoot.

Probably too hot for our summers, so I'm eyeing a mesh Go-Go Gear Cafe jacket (a lovely flared A-line, oh, my!) ... on Ms Delectable, it'll be hard to concentrate on the road, winter or summer!

... these jackets are so much less expensive than all-weather touring gear that it's not hard to buy two (and they save the expensive bike gear for long tours that need 100% weaherproofing). And the "look" is worth it, especially compared to all-weather touring gear!
