Am I the only one tired of riding gear that has the manufacturer's name emblazoned all over it? I want a jacket, not a leather billboard for the company.



They should pay the wearer for advertising.

+1 for the Lee Parks deer sports. I bought some thin little high-tech gloves to wear under the deer sports in cold weather.

Just fill the pockets with potting soil and let nature take its course!

alpinestars st-1 drystar- water resistant and great for cold weather. although, it doesn't get much below 40 in ATL in the winter- they are built well and work fantastic.

You're not the only one. I have a Joe Rocket Phoenix jacket, which is fairly nice overall, but two shoulder patches, a logo just under the neck, and the huge Rocket logo at the tail is obnoxious. I've been meaning to remove the patches and tail logo for awhile but haven't got around to it.

Love the Parks gloves, but be warned: very tight around the wrist.



You can have my elderly Bates Deerskin gloves when you pry them - along with various firearms - from my cold dead fingers.

Maybe you've got extra wrist fat.

You do need to leave your wrist watch at home for sure.
