- Crafted from 1.0-1.2mm full grain leather.
- Dual rear and sleeve vents.
- Left snapped and right zippered inside pockets.
- Antique Nickel YKK hardware.
- Optional removable insulated liner.
The Summer Riding Jacket elicited an immediate bond of affection with me. It easily lends itself to all the peripheral duties of a great motorcycle jacket: pillow, blanket, bed, drop cloth and trusted friend. Comfortable to carry, comfortable to wear, reassuring to touch - easy to look at. If Frank Sinatra were to stand in the shadows with a leather motorcycle jacket slung over his shoulders, this is the one he'd use. Enough with the romance. On to the facts.
The Men's Summer Riding Jacket is crafted from a lighter weight full grain cowhide than what we typically use in the construction of our made in the USA motorcycle jackets. It has two generous rear and sleeve vents with a tough mesh shell to allow maximum airflow. This jacket has zippered sleeves and zippers on the sides to allow for adjustment. Soft full grain leather with a dull luster shows off the natural grain and complements the antique nickel hardware.
Armor provisional pockets in the elbows, shoulders, and back allow you the option of using body armor with this jacket (armor available separately).
T-Pro Armor may not fit all shoulder pockets unless it is trimmed to fit. Elbow and back armor should fit correctly without trimming.
Please read How Your Motorcycle Jacket Is Supposed To Fit if you have any questions on sizing.

Our lifetime guarantee covers the workmanship and materials on all of our American made chaps, jackets, vests and pants as long as they are owned by the original purchaser. This includes any problem with snaps, zippers, seams and grommets that arise due to normal use of the garment.

Summer riding jacket
Posted by Greg on Jun 28th 2017
Well I just got my summer riding jacket and as always, a truly nice and well made leather jacket. I bought the one without a liner as I'm in Houston and it's 95 degrees outside or feels like it now for the next few months!
This jacket has some heft to it and is not a windbreaker or some flimsy thing you throw on and go for a ride. It's well made, and supple right out of the box. You really don't feel the heat with the ventilation unzipped, so I'm very happy with my purchase. I also have a Grayson jacket, a few pairs of gloves and a wallet. All quality and American made!! Fox Creek can't be beat for the quality and customer service they provide.
As always, shipping was quick and here in a few days. Buy American and get some really great gear from these guys!

For the past few months I have been looking for a leather motorcycle jacket that was 1) of high quality 2) made in the USA 3) traditional style 4) wearable in South Florida's hot weather at least in the winter and early spring. Most major motorcycle brands have their products made abroad, and I have not been impressed by the quality. USA-made, high quality alternatives included Schott and a few others; those jackets are great but too thick and heavy to be usable here. They also cost about twice as much. Then I found the Fox Creek Leather website. I asked a few questions to customers service, including details about specific measures, and got prompt reply. I took the plunge and I have been very happy. The jacket came after two days, and was shipped for free. Quality is excellent. At 1.0-1.2 mm this summer jacket is not a light jacket, and it feels really strong. However, it vents well and even in city riding with temperatures in the 80s it can be worn. Another plus is that it is predisposed to accept armor. The price is less than most other brands yet quality leaves nothing to be desired. Quality wise this jacket is on par with the other famous brands. I love that is is made by a small company. Suggest the company should make videos to illustrate their products, and use higher resolution pictures, it would help sell.
No Regets on this one....

Over the years I have made several purchases from Fox Creek...The Classic II Jacket, Chaps, a couple of vests, gloves and now the Summer Riding Jacket. I had my eyes on this beauty for a couple of years and decided to take the plunge. I called Fox Creek and spoke to Brittany who answered a couple of questions and processed my order...bang, no hassles. I received the delivery today, two days after placing my order, and am blown away by the look and fit. I own a Schott Café Racer jacket and must say that while the Schott is more expensive, the Fox Creek Summer Riding jacket is just as nice...if not better. If you're looking for a quality lightweight leather jacket for riding or just casual wear, you won't regret picking up a Fox Creek Summer Riding Jacket.
The Highest Quality

I have Fox Creek jackets, vests, over pants, chaps, gloves and a wallet. This leather gear protects me when I am riding my Harley. I ride long distances at least once a year. I wanted a Fox Creek jacket for casual wear so I decided on the Summer Riding Jacket. Like all of the other leather goods I have from FC I knew I would be getting a great quality product. I purchased a jacket awhile back from a famous motorcycle company that sells leather jackets. It is ok but it was sold as buffalo leather. When one sees this they think of American Bison leather. Well this is made of Asian Water Buffalo leather. The smell is not the luxurious odor of American cowhide. The Water Buffalo leather actually smells bad, a disappointment.
Like everything else from FC this jacket is great quality leather, the workmanship is perfect and it has good zippers and snaps. Fox Creek folks are easy to deal with and their guarantee, which I have never had to use, is very reassuring.
More than a jacket -- a legacy.

I can only second the superlatives from my fellow reviewers. The look, feel and comfort of this jacket is just superb and the leather is flawless and substantial. I expect this will be the last motorcycle jacket that I'll purchase and that like the very best leather jackets, will endure as a legacy to my son.
Recommend no other before Fox Creek

Absolutely the best quality, style and value around.
This jacket is worth twice what I paid for it
Great Quality Jacket
Posted by Jon H. on Dec 1st 2016
I just purchased this jacket and took it for its first ride this week. I absolutely love the feel of the leather, the weight of the jacket, and the quality of construction. It is a nice well made jacket that is very comfortable. I got this instead of the thicker leather jacket so it would be more lightweight. I have a heated line to wear under it which works great in the cold weather (or you can wear other layers). I am very pleased with this jacket. I've also visited these guys and they are awesome to work with. I'd encourage you to visit if you live close enough and buy a jacket here if you want a great quality product.
Better than a Schott ! Maybe ?
Posted by N.Y. Rider on Nov 8th 2016
This is my first Fox Creek riding jacket, four others, all American made. Possibly the best. The buying experience could have went smoother, the first jacket I ordered was a size 46 with a liner. With the liner in it was to tight. I returned it for a 48 with a liner, I was sent a size 50 that was incorrectly tagged a 48 ! Try again, the next jacket a 48, was too big. Returned it for a size 46 without the liner, fits perfectly. I would say the jacket is very true to size, with out the liner. And warm enough without it, so I don't recommend it. The jacket is extremely comfortable. No break in necessary. The ventilation system works well, however in 80 degrees I had to take it off, so I'm not sure about the summer classification. I'd rather see the jacket made with steer hide or horse hide, for better weather resistance, but it would need to be broken in ! The cow hide is top quality, as well as the construction and design. And it looks great. Considering that this jacket is 2/3 the price of my Schott. I highly recommend checking out this Fox Creek product !
Everything I ever wanted in a leather riding jacket

Took the trip down to Fox Creek and wasn't disappointed. The leather is thick and durable and the jacket fits perfect. My only regret is that I didn't buy a vest too!
Well made, comfortable and great looking jacket
Posted by Jim on Aug 29th 2016
We were lucky to visit Fox Creek this summer while staying in the area for 3 days of riding. The staff was amazing. They were very helpful and patient while we tried on many jackets and sizes. My buddy and I both went with the summer riding jacket. I'm 6"1", 190ib with long arms. The 42 tall fit like a glove. It is so comfortable and stylish. The venting works really well for warmer weather.
