Default Jacket recommendation?

Looking at getting a 3 season jacket, mostly sport touring type riding.

Thoughts?

There are a lot of closeout deals right now.
I bought a Scorpion EXO just this Sept. for road riding in hot weather. Real nice and with track level armor, acceptable for Novice class track days with the org I ride with :https://www.sportbiketracktime.com/
However, I will only wear a leather outfit on the track, I'm getting close to touching my knee down.

I like my dainese. It's perforated so good for summer, and has an insert for cooler weather.
