Bang for the Buck
Protection & Durability
I had been looking to get one of these used for a while, and saw these were on sale and went for one. At the reduced price, it is a great jacket! Has protection where you need it and flows a good bit of air. It has a very sporty fit, which I like, and looks pretty cool. I just wish the leather was perforated. This would help to improve the air flow a good bit. I still sweat in it when it's hot outside (I live in GA, it's pretty humid in the summer), but it does what it's supposed to.
I feel the leather in the impact areas is a much needed addition to this type of jacket. I also own a REV'IT Airforce jacket, which is supposed to have some pretty abrasion recent material. I went down on the street on it at around 30-35 mph (I looked away from traffic for a split second and when I looked back I realized I had to brake and grabbed too much, probably also pulled on the handlebars). The fall ripped through the fabric pretty easily at the elbow armor, I actually scrapped up my arm a little where there was no armor. I was not impressed with it to say the least. I was also wearing a pair of Shift Lowdown jeans and you can barely tell I hit the asphalt on those and they are cotton, and I took a pretty hard hit to my hip.
