russter Posted October 19, 2007 Share Posted October 19, 2007 I have never worn anything other than a leather jacket so looking at the textile is new to me. The Olympia are obviously popular so I checked them out. I hear many of you like the Airglide and the AST so last weekend I tried all of them on including one called the "Patton" but I don't see any of you mentioning it. Is this maybe a new model or one that no one really cares for? I definitely liked the Airglide. I know the AST is very popular but is this jacket maybe overkill for Texas weather? The Patton seemed a little lighter weight and maybe better suited to the milder Texas winters but I was a little skeptical because no one talks about this particular model. Also I have never worn a 3/4 length before and wondered if this jacket would tend to rub and scuff the tank or is it really not that long? It seemed that the Patton is somewhat of a lightweight version of the AST and with a few less bells, whistles, and pockets. Any advice you can give me on these jackets would be appreciated.
