I wear an Icon Contra Hi-viz Mil-spec. I think its the best combination of high visibility, function, safety and style. It comes with removable liner, removable pads.

I've got a screaming demon IXIL, not too loud but loud enough to get noticed, nor does the complete system throw an engine check light.

Jackets are personal choice, you'd be better off heading into a shop and trying a few on. I like Dri-rider gear as it breathes.

But you'll find all the info and more already talked about on this site.

I ditto the advice regarding personal preference by trying on. But, when it comes to exhaust, I recommend the Two Brothers. I use to get cut-off when I was seen and not heard. My bike cannot be ignored now and I feel safer.

+1 on the Icon Contra Mil-Spec. The wind really blows right through it so not a cold climate jacket, but I'm in California so those days are few. Still, the high viz was the deciding factor for me and catch drivers doing double takes. Exhaust still is stock and no plans yet for that.

I live in Brisbane, and while it isn't as hot here as it is where you are, I find even meshy textile jackets are just too hot. I'd recommend a Motorcross jacket, the mesh ones with the plates of armour. Bikebiz stocks quite a few different jackets.
