They make some of the best jackets around. That said, the white leather that glows in the dark will eventually degrade.

I love my Vanson though.

I had kinda figured that that kind of finish would wear off, but if the jacket alone is worth buying, the use I'd get out of it would justify that alone.

Currently, it's listed at $349. I don't think I'd ever spend $800 on a jacket. Maybe a full suit...

Vanson is top of the line. I'd give my left arm for one.
I think that to be unreasonable. Then the clutch gets lonely.
Much better to give, say, a mother-in-law's left arm?

Just another reason for me to hate little people!!!!!:lol:
I'm not exactly "little." I weigh in at 6'2, 220. But I fit into a 44, at least in other brands.

Does anyone know if the sizes are accurate/comparable to other brands?

well speaking as one who lost a good deal of the functionality of his left arm due to HS football (riding is within my available range of motion, thank God)... No jacket is worth that...
Didn't mean to offend, just a phrase I use meaning I would really like to have that jacket. After my wreck my am hurt like hades, but it would reach the handlebars with minimum pain, and that's all I cared about. Peace.

you didn't offend, I just wish my shoulder and the nerves that run through it weren't so screwed up. for an example.. if you stick your arm out straight from your shoulder and move your forearm using just the rotator cuff.... my left arm only has 140 deg of movement, while my right's range is about 200+ deg. We won't even talk about the random numbness... **** football.

Which jacket do you have?
THIS one here. The fit is a bit different than many are used to. I'll check the sizing to make sure, but IIRC, mine is a 46-48 and I wear a 43. One more thing to consider is that the jackets do not come with any armour, which can be purchased additionally.

Here's another pic... Ok hard to see it, just wanted to show off my leathers :)

And good looking leathers they are.

It's stuff to take into account. I can always return something that doesn't fit, so it's not the end of the world if it takes a bit of guessing.
I do have another jacket I can wear.
