Women's Fitted Classic Motorcycle Jacket
I think I'm in love! I just received this jacket and it is the first one that I have ever felt immediately comfortable wearing. While made out of high quality, thick leather, the jacket is very soft and pliable. Most times soft and pliable equals thin leather... not this time.
The features are endless... zip out full lining (yes, there are sleeves) for colder weather, zippers on the sleeves for easy on-off of gloves, zippers on the sides to allow hip adjustment (I found I liked them zipped down when walking around but slightly zipped up when riding to allow a bit more movement). There are two inside pockets - one with a snap and one zippered. They work perfectly for my cell phone and wallet. There are FOUR outside pockets - two check and two pocket.
The sizing is pretty exact....my measurements were between a medium and a large so with their guidance (great folks to work with), I went with the large - and I'm glad I did.
I went on a group ride recently and received my first compliment on the jacket (one of many). Another lady rider asked me about it and said she loved the look of it when riding behind me. Thanks to the fitted waist, it made me look so feminine, she said.
UPDATE: Well, after wearing the jacket for several months, I am more in love with it than ever. It's so comfortable and I always get compliments on it. I have ridden in temperatures below 50 (with the liner) and as high as upper 80's. Now that it's in the 90's most days, it's been temporarily replaced by my mesh jacket but come cooler weather, it will be the first thing I pull out of the closet. Did I mention that I love this jacket? ;-)
