Call the DSG guys as well planetdsg.com

Also always remember buy as much as you can afford, you never know when it will pay off. Trust me.

^^ I cant find the MX3 model in planetdsg. All are alpinestars. And good looking ones cost a bomb.

I can compromise on the price in need of quality. So, can you suggest some alpinestars models?

I drive in Delhi, and now winter has started.

Right now using a half gloves, bought from the payment of connaught place, after a bargain for 30 rupees

Alpinestars is a little expensive but quite worth it, they do have many models in the lower price range. I guess you were looking at full gp series. You dont need that you can buy the cheaper ones around 3000ish they are also good.

I have just recently ordered quite a box from sportbiketrackgear which I can hardly wait for to arrive. One of the articles is a pair Alpinestar gloves which seem to be quite a buck for what I paid. Lets see how vfm and well finished they actually are once the stuff reaches me.

Also to mention Cramsters MX3 is already shortlisted.

Recently i bought a STUDDS Bravo Red helmet with grahics.
The quality for the price of Rs 950/- is highly appreciable and recommended.

Hi Guys
I was thinking of going in for my first riding jacket and found this link
Men's Black and Grey Armored Motorcycle Tri-Tex™ Fabric Jackets

Is it worth the money , anyother suggestions will be most welcome. A friend of mine will get it for me when she returns to India this December.

Thanks in advance

I'm using that jacket for more than a year now - extremely satisfied with it - Please remember to order one size larger than your regular size!

It does come with padded CE Approved Armour

I asked my friend coming down from USA to get it for me - So find some one coming from US to get it for you, Not sure of import duties if ordered online.

xElement is good enough, I'm not comparing with a Cramster or a DSG - But its worth every penny - I have been using it for more than a year and it has served me very well.

Ummm... That put me in a bigger fix.

Is 'XElement' > Cramster?

It seems to be cheaper than Cramster for sure. If it isn't really good, I would much rather go with a Breezer 2.0 or a Pulse.

Another question: If I buy a size bigger on the Breezer, can I wear it on a sweatshirt in the winters?

The Breezer looks better than the Pulse IMO.

Between the two, which one would you guys suggest?
