honda / joe rocket leather jacket

Postby misu on Fri Jan 28, 2011 10:24 pm

just got the joe rocket honda shadow hawk leather jacket today from (formerly if you're a big guy, and the remaining sizes they have i stock fit you, definitely consider it...regularly $400 and some sizes are $120. i'm a fairly in shape 6', 175 and the 40 fits me snug. great return policy too (they pay for return shipping!) ... acket.html

this is my 1st leather jacket of any kind and 1st motor/scooter specific jacket for sure. all the features are described pretty well on the website, but i was just amazed and impressed with the quality. cost is kept down because it's made in china, but i don't see any loose threads and the leather feels great. i'm sure it'll feel "custom" as i break it in too. i was debating getting a regular leather jacket (ie. department store) but i'm not really a leather jacket wearing guy so figure may as well get a bike specific one.. i appreciate the reflective back logo.

anyways, maybe overkill for a scooter, but a crash is a crash... and this jacket should protect me well should i go down (thick leather, shoulder/elbow/back armor). and while i'm not crashing, it's got some great features that will work for a variety of temps (removable liner, zip out panel for mesh in the arm pits, arm clips to snug things up to be even more aero ;0).
