Default Good Motorcycle Jacket For Me?

Just got my first bike and before riding, I definitely wanna have my gear to protect myself.I have taken the class and am ready to go. I'm going to go to my motorcycle dealer and look at the jackets, helmets and gloves but I was just wondering what's a good brand of jacket and which one to go with that provides good benefits and all? Also, a good helmet and any info you can provide.And if it matters, I live in Phoenix, Arizona where the summer weather is about 110 and the winter time, it is no lower than 65 really. And I'm 19, 6 feet tall, and weigh 150 pounds.Thank you for your advice. Look forward to joining the motorcycle world!

Save yourself some money and go on Ebay and look around. If you go to the bike store and buy a jacket you are going to pay about 3 times what you could get the same jacket for n Ebay. I got a $190.00 leather jacket for $90.00 on there. As far as what type of jacket or a name brand, they are all good ones, but if you are looking to find the safest one, it really doesn't matter. My personal preference is leather.
