    After trying on several different types and brands of leather jackets I took a chance and plunked down a weeks pay for a Fox Creek Vented Racing Jacket. I was looking at the Harley FXRG leather jacket but that was more than $200 more. I wore a buddies FXRG and its a very good jacket! But it was just a bit too rich for me. There was no way I was going to spend more than $700 for the HD jacket. I've had the Fox Creek jacket now for a little over 300 miles in temps as low as 27 degrees and so far not above 43 degrees. All I need under it is a t-shirt and a medium weight fleece turtle neck. I don't need my Gerbing Electric under-jacket anymore. Once summer temps hit here I will know better about it's comfort level in the heat. After measuring myself according to their directions I ordered a standard size over the 'net. Soon I received a phone call from them to check my size. They wanted to insure I was ordering correctly! I called them again with a question and their service is excellent. They also respond very quickly to emails. In my opinion this jacket is every bit as good as the FXRG jacket. AND, it's American made!

    A lot of guys tote pistols or some kind of weapon when they ride. My friend up the street carries a .38 derringer when he rides. Think I'll pass. The Fox Creek leathers look great, BTW.

    I don't ride a horse. But I do pack either in my vest or leather jacket.
    I even carried in D.C. Last summer. :D

    Nice jacket. Really nice. Looks super well made.
    Hope you take care of it and don't lay it down so somebody cansteal it.
    Or just git fat and can't wear it.
    I walked into the HD store in 06 and got the OL and me a brand new FXRG jacket.
    I haven't had no regrets since. The last leather jacket I had I had it for about
    20 yrs and gave it to my son, cause I got too fat for it.
    I buy my jackets a little big.
