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.

I wasn’t sure what jacket to get but out of all the brands they had in stock this was the most comfortable and the most padded for the price. It’s a super warm jacket when you need it to be, riding in freezing temperature was no problem. When it’s warmer out all the vents on this jacket easily cool you down so you can enjoy your ride. I highly recommend this jacket!Read All Reviews

The cheesy front zipper and some interior stitching will remind you that you get what you pay for, but beyond that, this jacket is great for the cash. Fit me perfectly in XL, very comfortable with lots of padding and pockets. Haven't tried it any weather below 40°F yet, but so far has been great. - -Read All Reviews

I ordered an extra large as that is the size of every jacket I own. I’m sorry to say the fit was oddly right across the shoulders. So much so that I checked to see if it wasn’t a large. It was not. Unfortunately this jacket had to go back and I’m waiting on the XXL to see how that fits. I’m hoping it won’t be huge around the waist. Seems to be well made but I can’t do better than 3 stars for the fit issue.Read All Reviews
