Tourmaster Jacket

Would a Tourmaster Transition Series 3 jacket be warm enough for riding in AZ during Dec, Jan, and Feb?

Might want to find a fleece for another layer, just in case, but should be.

I had the Sonora or Sonoma ,whatever it was, that they made and it was plenty warm! It did not let anything through it! They make great products. Sorry I dont know that exact model, but I know the one I had was warm.

I can't speak to Arizona, but I have a Tourmaster Transition II coat, and I wear only a T-shirt under it down to about 50*. Then I add a long sleeve thermal. As Coop said, nothing gets thru.

Very comfortable and good quality.

Odd, it didn't look that soft before I rode into it...

I've got a Joe Rocket convertible jacket. Had it since March. I haven't had to ride with the fleece liner, since late March. I'm expecting to use it by late December. I'm in the metro-Phoenix area.

Looking at the Transition 3, I think you'd be good with that. I would buy it, if I didn't already have my jacket. Pants or chaps are what I'm looking for.

Bro in law recently bought this jacket and loves it! He has ridden below freezing and has been warm and toasty! Go for it, Tourmaster is great quality!
