- 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.

Moved to Florida and my jacket was way to heavy for here. Went on site and saw a Summer Riding Jacket. Perfect as with everything at Fox Creek. Fit well and not too heavy at all. Perfect for Florida weather. Customer Service was awesome in helping me pick the right size. Also got one for my wife and she loves hers.

Im 5’8” 44 chest.
Bought size 46 regular. Perfect fit.
Ordered without a liner. Can put it over a sweatshirt.
Don’t assume that it’s being a “summer” jacket it being a light weight. Leather is soft and pliable, and heavy. Seems very well made. Feel very protected.
If this jacket this heavy then “Greyson” jacket must be a bulletproof.
Best jacket of all time

A great all around jacket can’t say enough. Nice and heavy. Started with the Grayson but it was a little overkill for Texas weather. 43 inch chest went with 42 perfect fit; sleeves were not too long like most jackets. Fills that fashionable going out on the town/ functional riding jacket need. Only leather jacket I own. Tried Schott’s not worth the money. Fox Creek is great to deal with processed my exchange and shipped scary fast.
Great thinner jacket

Great jacket from a great company. After losing a significant amount of weight my old Fox Creek jacket in a size 54 is way too big so I started looking at a replacement. I never used the liner that came with the old one and like the nickel hardware and thinner leather on the Summer Riding jacket better than the bronze, so I ordered a Summer Riding jacket in 46 with the liner. It along with a pair of Fox Creek elkskin gauntlet gloves is perfect for these cool fall mornings so far. I'll add a layer under it or order a Grayson later on if I have to when it gets colder. Next I need to get another pair of leather overpants, since my old size 44 ones will not stay on me at all.

Ever wanted a jacket that fit you like your own skin? That you could wear anywhere and be marked as someone exceptional? That would be comfortable in a range of temperatures and conditions which would leave other jackets wanting? That would last forever?
Then buy a Fox Creek jacket.
High Quality Jacket

I purchased this jacket and immediately notice the craftsmanship and softness of the leather when I took it out of the box. It's still heavy for a summer jacket and I probably wont wear it in temperatures over 75 degrees. But I was so impressed by the quality of the leather, inner lining, buttons and zippers that I purchased the rebel vest for those warmer days. I bought this jacket one size larger than my suit size as I plan to use it between temperatures of 30-75 degrees and I can wear a heavy hoodie under it for colder days. Length was perfect. I'm 6 ft and ordered the regular.
I wanted to point out what great customer service I experienced. The first jacket I ordered was a 46 tall. I noticed a small puncture tear near the collar and sent Fox Creek a picture. They confirmed the tear and sent me a new jacket, no cost. Unfortunately I forgot to tell them the 46 long was too big so when the next one came I wanted to return it for a 46 regular but had to pay return shipping. But that was my fault. The people were friendly and I have two garments I will have for the rest of my riding career.
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
Posted by Michael on Jan 3rd 2017
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.
