I think i have narrowed it down to a couple of jackets...let me know what you guys think.

Please vote then explain why. I like the A* one but it is bit pricey. I like the JR one because it is pef'd in the sleeves, and is cheaper but it isnt CE armor.. The vanson..is well...a vanson. I plan to check out what they have this weekend. Vanson is also $$ and ugly as hell...

i like the A* the best, because its plain and simple. however A* charges so much dam money, i wouldnt buy it on principle.

i have a hat, but i got it for cheap cuz i work at the shop and get a good discount. hmmm.... i wish i had some of my catalogues from work right now. tryin to think of what the best jacket out there is.

have you looked into Cortech at all...theyre a company on the come up and have real quality leather jackets. IM SO Happy with mine! after 2 crashes, its a little scuffed, but no holes, no split seams. and its a cool plain black jacket. me likey.

this is a newer version. the Impulse II

Big Red - I will see what we are going to charge on the jackets.

We can make so it accepts the pants as well we have zip in linner and the jacket perforated.

Sorry for not answering you about this earlier. I have been jumping through my ass these past weeks on a few bike builds.

The leathers we sell will be much cheaper in price but as good if not better in quality. We double stitch all the seems a well.

They are not for show but rather are work leathers made to hit the pavement in a race.

I can custom size for you and all post members at no cost extra (Jackets only) So when you get to the weight you want we can measure you up and make a one off to your specific size.

Our armor is basically CE armor design but then we enhanced the padding.

Internal removable back protector (CE) is included.

I got YKk zippers

1.2-1.4 mm thick leather etc...

All the specs for the other suits are on mine or more so.

Arms are not vented but they have stretch kevlar (which breaths). Chest is fully vented.

I can slap your name on there as well if you wish. 2 usd a letter if not custom sizing - custom sizing is included

here is a pic of my friend he is 6-3" tall and quite the "V' back and we custom sized for him.



basically take tehe race suit and add a zipper in the middle and you got one of my jackets.

I do not paln to do jacket only style at this time , just jackets that will accept the pants for a 2 piece zip together race suit. Sorry.
