MotoGP Corkscrew leather jacket
« on: May 28, 2007, 11:27:07 AM »
I picked one of these up a few weeks ago from New Enough. I thought the price was a typo at first - $140 for a leather jacket? But it's true, and a great jacket. Looks like they still have a pretty good selection of sizes and colors.

It's a perf jacket, so it breathes fairly well. I'm actually looking forward to wearing this on the Bandit. It flows pretty well while sitting upright, but when I'm on my FZR and tucked in it gets toasty pretty quick on warm days. Comes with a removable vest liner for cooler days. The biggest word of caution - these things run small. I wear a XXL in my other jackets with room to spare. I bought the XXXL and I have to suck in the gut to get the zipper started. Oh well, motivation to get my fat arse back to the

It's a good quality jacket, so if you've been wanting leather but didn't want to spend $300 plus I recommend checking this one out - Corkscrew

I got one too! I'm not a big guy at all (5'9, 165 lbs) and I ended up getting a Large. It felt a little tight at first, but its nice and broken in now...and it actually feels a bit loose. But it got a lot more comfortable since I got it! :D And surprisingly, its not that hot, especially at speed.

I still prefer the A* TZ-1 jacket I tried on the other day, fit me perfectly! But it was like twice the price.
