Custom Leathers good price

Not feeling safe with my off-the-shelf A* leathers on my thin body and bird legs, I decided to go for custom after I read about good prices from Moto-Gear.us. I was skeptical about $499 for custom leathers, hell I would feel the same for off-the-shelf! However, a reputable reviewer (Superbike Coach) gave me the confidence to take the plunge. I picked a pattern/style and then selected my own colors and logos. Then the wife and I went about taking the 30 (!) measurements. It is critical that you take your time and redo at least 3 times to confirm. After emailing the measurements and custom needs like 1 or 2 piece, vented or not, boots in or out and so on. I was sent mock-ups of my suit. After my tweaks they resent the final design for approval. Amidst this pandemic I received my new suit in about 6 weeks. Pants fitting my legs to perfection but I made a couple of measurement mistakes on the jacket and they forgot to perforate (2 piece). They offered to redo the jacket with new adjustments and perforated for $120 shipped and I keep the unperforated for cooler days. The new jacket now fits as perfect as the pants - a true custom tailored fit!

The quality and workmanship is excellent, can't find a single flaw or reason to be disappointed! Highly recommend you look into this custom option for better than shelf prices. I have no affiliation whatsoever, just impressed enough to want to share with fellow bikers.
