Depending on your budget and body build, Revit has some nice, practical and affordable (somewhat) jackets. The 3 season jacket that I am thinking about is Revit Sand 3. It is very well vented for hot days, but also comes with rain and cold weather liners. Revit has a more of a European slim cut for skinny guys like me. You can probably find one at Cycle Gear and try it on.
