So winter's here!! And my riding gear is out.

Here's my 20 year old (older than my wife in my life) pure Calf Leather Jacket. Battle bruised but ready for another 20. Good quality lasts forever.

Leather'ite is NOT leather. Most probably derived from polyester. It feels and looks just like leather but is just lighter compared to a hideskin one. The finish and stuff is world class. It is slim fit so I could hardly fit into the XXL size whereas my normal 'American' size is XL. It is not ventilated or armoured but a normal everyday wearable and rideable Leather(ite) Jacket with excellent design. OE Harley Leather Jackets are in the 30K range. If you want OE wait for Jan when they are available on 50% off sales. But OE Harleys lasts a lifetime...
