Last year I found that the jacket I used most was a black and silver Joe Rocket Mesh Jacket since it was cool in the summer and provided acceptable road protection. My leather jacket was just too warm.

The problem with the Joe Rocket is that it really does not look good with my Vespa GTV-300 in Espresso (Brown). Furthermore, the Joe Rocket is covered with flashy badges and names all over. This is not the look I was trying to portray. My warmer leather jacket has beige and black and no badges. It is much nicer but also much hotter riding in the summer.

I started shopping for a Mesh jacket that will offer airflow and road protection while blending in with the Italian Style of my GTV-300.

Look what I found!


A lightweight spring / summer scooter jacket by Tucano Urbano. The Atitlan AB jacket is made from a combination of hi-density mesh and waxed polyamide with a light mesh lining. Available with or without shoulder and elbow armour and equipped for use with the Tucano Urbano airbag system (available separately). The waist and sleeves are adjustable, with 1 external pocket, 1 inside document pocket and reflective safety band on the collar.

This jacket actually accommodates an airbag system (not on my list today). It sells for about $ 250.00 USD delivery by Fed Ex included. You can order this plus many more cool items from Scooter Cray in the UK (CLICK THE LOGO BELOW)scooter crazy

I also found some cool matching gloves and another warmer jacket that almost matches the leather on my seats. I am still surfing their site. Below is a wish list in picture format of what I am considering to order.  Any comments or preferences?
