I bought this jacket after weeks of research, and looking at various leather race jackets, and I've got to say, I'm really impressed by the amount of features and the quality of the craftsmanship that went into this product! Way to go A-Stars!
Out of the bag, it had a fresh, quality leather smell, and the high grade leather felt great to the touch, and looks even better. I got the jacket in red/black/white and it just screams "LOOK AT ME!!". It's definitely eye catching, but it also provides a great amount of protection. The perforation and venting system provide great air flow, while still providing optimum protection. As far as protection goes, the included shoulder sliders and elbow/forearm protection are very rigid, but the jacket is still very versatile and easy to move in. With the available upgrade of the bio armor back and chest protection, this jacket would definitely make a great top piece of a 2-piece race suit. It is a race fit so it is a little snug, and I would recommend going by the A-Stars size chart, also watching the A-Stars sizing video to get the optimum size to fit you. The included liner is also a great feature that A-Stars brought back that can stretch the riding season with this jacket from early spring, all the way to late fall.
The materials and craftsmanship put into this jacket work together great, making it such a masterpiece, and I would recommend it to everyone.
Yes, I recommend this product.
