Do you go out riding in the cold? If you do, an ATV jacket is essential. You can’t be comfortable if you’re not warm, and that can put a damper on any ride. There are a lot of options when it comes to a good riding jacket, but it’s important to find one that best suits your needs.
One of the first things to consider is what temperatures you’ll be riding in with your jacket. Do you need something for the brisk fall weather? Or do you need a jacket that can handle the bitter cold of the middle of winter? Not all ATV jackets have the same level of warmth, and you don’t want to end up with something that won’t keep the chills out or that will heat you up too much.
It’s best if you can find something weather resistant. Waterproof is even better. You never know when you might get caught in the rain while out on the trails, and you’ll appreciate something that keeps the water out. Being wet on a cold day is no fun, and even an extra-warm jacket won’t cut it if the water seeps right through to you.
You’ve got to be on guard against water getting in, but you’ve also got to find a way to get water out – sweat. A little sweat can soak poorly designed gear and quickly become uncomfortable. A good jacket is breathable. If you spend a lot of time on your quad in the cold, you might even want to consider investing in a jacket that uses Gore-Tex or a similar material. This allows water out (sweat) without allowing water in (rain or other precipitation).
Finally, there are other things that you might find important, like color options or pocket locations.

This thing is made with magic, keeps you warm on those cool days yet stays super comfortable in a hot, packed restaurant. It is low bulk and fits under a jacket nicely. Fit is true to size for me. My only regret is not buying 2 so I can wear one while the other is in the wash.Read All Reviews

Took the jacket and pants on a recent trip with rainy weather conditions and the jacket performed very well. For hotter days there are plenty of zippers to allow air flow. I usually wear an XL but needed to go up a size to XXL on jacket and XL on pants. Jacket is more of an European cut than American cut. Fits me well and I am 6'1" and 225 lbs, more on the muscle side than fat so to speak. I would purchase again. Materials and construction appear to be top notch.Read All Reviews
