I got this today after some delay as they shipped in to the UK from Pakistan but seller 3 day aired it to make up for that.

These are really nice and beats paying high dollars for the scorpion stuff.

They are in stock now if you are in the market.

I would want to see some independent reviews on the brand before I'd buy it if I wasn't buying a known brand from a reliable retailer.

What would you recommend in the way of leathers?

I have not ridden with it yet but here is some video and info. Leathers? I have a traditional leather motorcycled jacket but those do not have any armor in them. Maybe some of the old hands can give you pointers. I am post modern and like modern materials.


See video. Keep in mind the Jacket is a higher green yellow color in person. My camera seems to dull it down a little.

Oh ya the guy send me free gloves he said because I was polite about the delay and the wait time. He explained that there was a delay in the shipping and I was understanding of that as I have worked for a company that imported stuff from China and I know how that can go. I assume he had some buyers who were being all pissy about it. NO free gloves for them! hahahah

I have a jacket from River Road that has the classic biker style. It has sleeve vents and rear vents, plus can put in shoulder, elbow and back armor. Very comfortable down to about 40 degrees F and up to about 90F.
