    I too needed a jacket to wear over the body armor and neck brace. This is worth the price so far, not crash or rain tested. It has a couple of back vents, the sleeves can be zipped off or just opened a ways under the arms, and the cuffs can be opened large to let air flow up your arms.

    This jack is designed to fit over body armor, and it does.
    Got a good closeout deal ($67.97) at Atomic-Moto.MSR Trans Jak

    Yours truly sporting a RockGarden Flak Jacket and Leatt neck brace under the jacket.

    The RockGarden Flak Jacket has a back protector that would make a Stegasaurus jealous.

    Still no word on the price or either of these.

    I am interested in Both a Adv brace and the ADV chest protector.
    Think I will get a Leatt brace modded Motoport kevlar jacket and make a nice set of it.

    Hello Mpanther.

    I just checked this yesterday with Leatt USA. The jacket will be $199 and will be available in January. The chestpro is supposed to arrive next week.

    Reviving this thread I see that there are a number of options out there for Jackets that work with the Leatt. I'd like to know what all is out there before I buy either (I'm looking for a Leatt to try on as well). Maybe something like a list with price and a few notes to make this easier? I'll start.

    Leatt GPX $195 US, made by the same folks so it should work. Water resistant only.
    Leatt GPX Pro, $495 US, claims fully waterproof (love to hear from someone that has this one)
    Acerbis Desertika, $225 US
    Troy Lee Designs Blais, $200 US - lightweight, with review above claiming it fell apart on a fall.
    Scott 350 - $220

    and...
    Klim Adventure Rally, $1299 (seriously?) Top of the line so they claim, completely water proof.

    Others? Things to say about the above?

    I recently purchased the KTM Rally pants and jacket from Munn racing.
    Paid right at 400.00 usd for set. So far the set works great with no issues, but haven't crashed with it on (yet!) jacket comes with 2 collars (one for neck brace). Couldn't afford the high priced KLIM stuff.....
