what temperature range are you looking at? if its anything like Canada you wont find an all season. I have 3 jackets, one for cooler riding thick leather, one for summer mesh and one for track cooler leather. My riding season varies from 5 deg C to 40 deg C

Alpinestar Celler (track/ripping streets)
Icon Stryker (summer)
Icon Overlord (cooler temps)

what are you looking at for price? material?

I would go for Alpinestars GP series,leather as its the best protection and not too pricey 4-5 hundred and has removable liners and good ventilation also can throw a hoodie under if its too cold

All this being said it comes down to your body type, the style and what you are willing to spend.

Ive got a Joe Rocket Alter Ego 3.0... its a great multi layer jacket thats good for almost all season riding.

Has a water resistant outer shell... inner mesh jacket... removable fleece vest liner...

The vest liner I find is a giant PITA though and I leave it out as there is no bottom zipper so the liner snags and hangs up putting the jacket on... also no zipper for attaching to pants.

you cant go wrong with alpinestars leather. how much is your safety and skin worth? I have crashed bad at the track and walked away each time un hurt thanks to my alpinstars leather. the Atem series jackets are the best but expersive and worth saving some extra money for.
