Re: want to buy leathers. what to look for?
I have an AlpineStars jacket and pants that I received as a xmas present from my lovely wife a few years ago. She looked at other brands, but was told the quality and performance was hard to beat. Without buying and trying other brands, it's difficult to give comparisons, but I am more than happy with this set. I didn't want a full-on track suit as I often don't wear the pants when running errands or commuting to a meeting.
The fit and comfort are very nice and they seem to be a quality product.
We reviewed other brands but ultimately decided going the cheaper route wasn't a great option if I had to lay the bike down at any time.
