+1 ......they have lots of different styles and brands you can try on to see how you like them, they dont always have the best deal so you could get on off the internet or somewhere else but at least go there and try on a few different brands like alpine stars, frank thomas, first gear, dianese.....just depends on your budget and the feel.

I have a frank thomas i got there for 200 and it is more comfortable than my a-stars but the a-stars breathes better.

go to eximports to try on their jackets they have a lot of leather stuff... but if you see anything you like go to cycle gear to buy it. there are two in town but I'd avoid the I45 north one like the plague I went in there once they had laying all over the store the sales people were completely like "**** off" no interest in helping at all. I drove down to the one on 59 and ordered $800 worth of stuff...

the sad part is that I went up there and told them what I wanted and told them I wanted to buy it today and that I was gonna be spending that much money on it and they still just gave me the cold shoulder like they really didn't give a ****.
the sales people at the one on 59 are awesome always willing to help out and I bought a lot of stuff down there...
if you want to save time you can check out the gear on their website so you have an idea of what you want, a lot of times they dont have everything in the store to try on.
