I don't think there are all that many jackets that will take a brace. You could use your current one and not do the zip up all the way...

If it helps, I know a couple of seamstresses (that doesn't look right :confused:) who could probably help - or at least I can ask...

You'll be lucky to get a swapsie!

The only jacket I have seen that accomodates a neck brace is the top of the range Klim item. In the unlikely event that an owner is unsatisfied with it at about £1000 :eek: he is likely to want some coin as well as your px

Good luck though

BTW I came accross a GSer on Hard Knott pass yesterday. New bike, pristine full Klim adventure suit and matching helmet (him not me, I was covered in shite). I grinned at him as I passed round the inside of one of the hairpins stood on the pegs. In fact I was grinning the whole way up and down. As I was sat at the top having a brew he came by about 5 minutes later, then a car stopped and remonstrated with me for riding too fast. Job done!

I picked up one of last years KTM rally jackets for not a bad price (can't remember exactly but don't think it was that much) anyway that's been nice and tough and has the collar to take a neck brace.

Do KTM not sell these Rally Rep jackets anymore? This one cost about £150 I think. It has a collar that unzips to fit a neck brace. Also has no armour so I wore an amour jacket under it.

The Acerbis Desertika jacket is designed to accomodate a Liatt brace.

(I think the various team jackets are based on this jacket) Not much colour choice though!
