which jacket would you recommend?

Im getting an 07 r6 and am about 5'9 140 pounds and live in washington. Keeping in mind cold winters and pretty hot summers so im not sure if i should get the alpinestar TZ-1 or the alpinestar stage. they are both leather jackets. The only time I wont ride is when its raining. Also matching is important haha so PLEASE PLEASE help thanks!!

The jacket in my sig is a Cortech HRX. It is a hybrid leather/textile/mesh that comes with 2 liners. One is for wind/rain and the other is thermal for cold. I have been very happy with it. The pants I'm wearing are also HRX and they zip to the jacket via a full circumference zipper and have velcro on the knees for slider placement.
