I ride with an adventure bike jacket that I got from Honda at a motorcycle launch. I love the jacket, but I can’t find out what brand it is. I know Alpinestars make Honda branded jackets, and I know riders who where Alpinestars who are very happy with them.
The best one I could find is the Alpinestars Men’s Andes v2 Drystar available in Amazon. The price is reasonable and it is a reputable brand.
If you are just starting out and feel that a motorcycle jacket is too expensive, please reconsider. It is one of the most important pieces of safety gear you can wear and I would not ride anywhere without my bike jacket.
I always recommend getting the very best safety gear you can afford, but if you are really strapped for cash, rather get this cheap Korean JET waterproof bike jacket.
Even though it costs very little, it is still made from durable Cordura Polyester on the outside which is abrasion and tear resistant. On the inside it has CE approved elbow, shoulder and back protectors and there are more than enough pockets (always helpful!) for your wallet, phone and other stuff.
