For touring enthusiasts, racking up 100-200-300 miles a day for several days isn't exhausting—it's exhilarating. The Vanocker Waterproof Riding Jacket helps you meet weather demands to stay comfortable as every breathtaking sight rolls by. Functional design is key starting with climate control: an insulated liner blocks cold and ample venting keeps you cool when you reach a comfortable temp. This men's textile motorcycle jacket offers an interior zipper compatible with any of our riding pants designed with a jacket-to-pant zipper. Pair them and the result is a full suit of coverage against cold and precipitation.
With heated riding gear from Harley-Davidson, you'll stay warm and comfortable no matter where the road takes you.
Whether you choose One-Touch or Built-In, strategically placed heating elements inside the gear deliver even infrared heat in a matter of seconds. And the over-sized heating elements are thin and flexible for increased coverage and greater mobility.
Carbon Nanocore™ heating elements, with built-in smart-sensing technology, minimize the risk of the garment overheating and provide more heat with less power consumption than conventional wire-based systems.
Nothing compares to a great leather jacket in terms of keeping you warm, protected and looking great. But while it's heating up outside, how likely are you to ditch all your leathers and just go running down the road in a tshirt? We hear it all the time. "It's too hot for that jacket." If this sounds like something you have ever said, you might check out the benefits of a mesh riding jacket.

- Many mesh jackets offer hydration pockets which fit hydration packs for maximum cooling.
- Styles range from affordable basics designed solely for warm weather riding to highly functional gear with versatility to be worn in a variety of conditions.
- New "Seasonal" styles are coming out throughout this summer which gives you options to choose from.
- 3M™ Scotchlite™ Reflective Materials on some jackets will give you more visibility at night
- Adjustable waist and cuff tabs allow you to get a snug fit.
