Leather Jacket Advice

I was looking the the Dyno by Alpinestars. Any other good brands? I dont wan't to pend more the $500 on a jacket. I plan on buying guantlet gloves and half calf boots also. Recomendations for that stuff?

I searched but the S/N ratio was too high.

Thanks

Ian

There's always good deals on ebay for jackets and gloves. Also, check newenough.com.

I bought a Joe Rocket Speedmaster jacket off of ebay not too long ago, and I love it.

buy the Sidi boots. I just checked them out from CCC and they fit and feel very comfortable. We get a discount from CCC.

I've got the Astars Dyno and I love it. I was testing out my new Vanson Ventilator (textile/mesh) this weekend in the nice weather, but I always feel 10x safer in my leather jacket.

It has CE-approved hard armor plates from wrist to elbow and then on the shoulders. It comes with a foam back plate but I bought the Astars hard back plate for $25. It alos has a full-circumference zipper for Astars pants (like the leather Track pants.) I can hook you up with the store I got mine at; paid just over $300 for it.

I also just picked up some Sidi Vert 2 Air boots and they are VERY nice. They have a vent on the top and strips of perforated leather on the sides.

Sidi's rock! I have the water proof Verts (Tapor or whatever they call it) sometimes I put my feet in em just because they feel so good.

I have heard good things about NewEnough, but not used em.

Joe Rocket two piece man, or any two piece (leather) for that matter. . . . forget the textile stuff.

I've got a Frank Thomas Racing 1 piece, only cost me 230 dollars! My boots are Teknic Lightning's which were a wonderful present from my brother, Chills. I use Joe Rocket Gauntlet gloves which are comfortable and protective. I recommend all of these, then again, I know nothing else.
