Your motorcycle might be ready, but is your gear?

Joe Rocket Phoenix 5.0 Motorcycle Jacket
Last year's version of the Joe Rocket Phoenix 5.0 Motorcycle Jacket was our best selling mesh motorcycle jacket, hands down. And there's no doubt in my mind why. With the Joe Rocket brand name behind this jacket, you know it's made with great quality and comes with legitimate features.
This year, Joe Rocket has revamped the Joe Rocket Phoenix 5.0 Motorcycle Jacket to make it even better. The FreeAir poly/mesh gives it maximum air flow to keep you completely cool while the RockTex in the shoulders, elbows and ribs makes sure that you don't lose out on protection. Plus, this mesh motorcycle jacket comes with a removable waterproof liner to keep you from getting wet during summer showers but can be taken out during dry rides.
The Joe Rocket Phoenix 5.0 Motorcycle Jacket also has tons of storage for keys, glasses and other necessities while the 6-point SureFit custom adjustment system assures that it will be comfortable. With a price point under $200 and coming in 8 colors including an all black or high-vis yellow, this is our top pick of the 2013's mesh motorcycle jackets.

Tour Master Sonora Air Motorcycle Jacket
Our second best selling mesh motorcycle jacket last year, the Tour Master Sonora Air Motorcycle Jacket has been revamped this year to be even better. Made of Armor-Link mesh and 600 denier Carbolex, this motorcycle jacket has great ventilation without being flimsy. Plus, it also includes an incredible 1680 denier ballistic polyester in high impact areas such as the elbow and shoulders.
We also love how this mesh motorcycle jacket is three-quarter length, providing coverage beyond many other motorcycle jackets. The Tour Master Sonora Air Motorcycle Jacket also includes a removable Aqua-Term, two-stage waterproof and insulated liner that makes this jacket extremely versatile. It truly is a great jacket for both warm and chilly weather and has tons of adjustment and additional CE approved armor.

Alpinestars T-GP Plus Air Textile Motorcycle Jacket
Brand new this year, the Alpinestars T-Gp Plus Air Textile Motorcycle Jacket is a great mesh motorcycle jacket for sport riders. Constructed of 600 Denier Polyester Fabric and hydrophobic mesh panels, this mesh motorcycle jacket is extremely breathable yet still has all of the great features that you would expect from and Aplinestars motorcycle jacket, including a sport fit with pre-curved sleeves engineered for enhanced riding comfort and integrated comfort foam padding on the back and shoulders.
But this mesh motorcycle jacket has probably the most armor of the bunch. With Removable CE certified Bio Armor elbow and shoulder protectors and chest and back pad compartments with PE padding, this jacket is meant for riders who will be doing some pretty aggressive sport riding this summer. While Alpinestars motorcycle gear usually comes with a pretty hefty price tag, the Aplinestars T-GP Plus Air Textile Motorcycle Jacket is very reasonably priced at just over $200.

Fly CoolPro II Mesh Motorcycle Jacket
While the original Fly CoolPro Mesh Motorcycle Jacket was one of the best selling summer motorcycle jackets for the past few years, Fly definitely outdid themselves when they upgraded it to the Fly CoolPro II. Not only does it have an updated look in a plethora of colors, this mesh motorcycle jacket also comes with the same features that made the original Fly CoolPro so popular, plus more.
Made up of multi-panel, abrasion resistant mesh and 600 Denier ballistic nylon, the Fly CoolPro II Mesh Motorcycle Jacket is not only super breathable, but comes with a removable water resistant liner as well. With dual Velcro adjustable wrist straps and 3-step adjustable, upper and lower, sleeve volume control for armor, the Fly CoolPro II Mesh Motorcycle Jacket is extremely adjustable. And removable CE armor in the shoulders, elbows and a comfort pad in the back give you tons of protection.
But probably the best feature of this jacket is its price. Under $140, this mesh motorcycle jacket is very affordable but has the quality and features of the more expensive motorcycle jackets. Get yours before summer hits here: Fly CoolPro II Mesh Motorcycle Jacket.
Scott Motorcycle Rain Jacket
Ok, so it's not necessarily a mesh motorcycle jacket, but the Scott Motorcycle Rain Jacket is a must have for summer in places that tend to get a bunch of rain. Sure, that may keep some riders off the road, but we know some riders can't be stopped.
This lightweight motorcycle jacket has a PVC outer shell, elastic Lycra Trim and hem as well as elastic cuffs to keep you dry while riding in summer showers. It rolls up into a small bundle so it can be kept on your motorcycle in case of emergencies and thrown on over your normal mesh motorcycle jacket in case of a rain emergency. Plus it doesn't look as goofy as some motorcycle rain jackets and in extremely low priced.
