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.

Fits great! Great outer wear and durable. Can not beat the price and quality. Compared to other jackets you could spend alot more. It is not a knock because of the price. I like Moose product for the type of enduro riding I do. I ride a lot!Read All Reviews

I bought this jacket 6 months ago for ORV riding in Michigan. We ride early morning into late afternoon and this jacket performed great with the changing temperatures. I'm very pleased with the protection it's given me from all the low hanging branches and it's held up well. The sleeves are nice and long with the thumb hole liner. I was glad I had the elbow pads when I dumped.Read All Reviews
