Tourmaster Advanced or Fieldsheer Zero Condition jackets?

I'm torn between the following two jackets:

Tourmaster Advanced - http://www.tourmaster.com/xcart/prod...uctid=31&cat=3

Fieldsheer Zero Condition - http://www.motorcyclegearreview.com/...php?prodID=972

I'm not really familiar with either of these two brands as I've never seen them in stock in my city. Which is considered higher quality?

Which of the two jackets would you buy, assuming pricing was identical? DO you see any drawbacks or key advantages of one jacket over the other?

I bought the Tour Master Advanced 3/4 this spring, and I love it. The fit is great. I love all the pockets. My only second-guessing thought is whether I should have bought the shorter version ... or if I should buy one of those too!

Apparently Tour Master is clearing these jackets out for new models. I like the older one better. I bought mine at Shade Tree Powersports for $80 off the regular price. In a recent Competition Accessories catalog, the jackets were priced even lower! :shock:

I have a Tourmaster Pivot that I really like. I can't tell from reading either of the link's description, but the Pivot has a zippered pocket on the left forearm (great for the knife I carry to dig out bee stingers) and a Zippered pocked near the zipper that I can access without unzipping the main zipper. Just two features that sold me on the Tourmaster...food for thought.

I have the Fieldsheer Zero Condition and it's great in cool and cold weather. Even with the quilted liner out and vents open, it's no good on days over 85. On the plus side, it's very well made with good CE approved armor. Got mine at Brockton Cycle on closeout for $99 about a year and half ago.
