I have a size 44 (large)black leather perf Joe rocket blaster Ill sell ya looks, and still smells new, had it for 9 mo and its only chewed up a few bugs. Its just a little big on me (now).

Otherwise, I have the above listed Leather perf. jacket, it is fairly cool actually even on the hottest sunshiney days, as long as your moving.

I also have a Scorpion hat trick textile, and I have to say they perform on par with eachother. It does feel like the textile has been a bit warmer while stationary. I only bought it because i got a little thinner and the Joe Rocket now flaps around a bit in the wind.

I have several different types/brands etc so if you wanna get out you can try perforated leather, highend leather, textile, vented etc.


Always consider fit as well!!! A loose jacket will not protect you and a jacket too tight will restrict your movement and cut off circulation.
Im usually a medium in jackets Thanks

Remember, not to buy until after your class. We're going to give you coupons to several places that sell gear.

Also, remember to bring these questions up during your class. That's part of what you're paying for. Check out what the Instructors wear also.
I forgot to ask about the material. I assumed if something was made to protect it would be tested, so as long as you got something good it was good for protection. Only after reading some posts about leather did i get confused

Oh i got the coupons, im just getting my list of stuff before i go :P

Dude, thats an idea, but surly they could do better then that.

Maybe an ejection seat when u know ur about to hit some ?

Then you can just have airbags go off everywhere so you just bounce on the ground?

hmmmmmm. lol

I went with an A* leather street jacket. I had to use much search-fu to find a great deal online IN my friggin' size (small), but it was worth it. You can also find good deals on closeouts if you surf around.
