Re: Speaking of crash test

Safety standards for motorcycle apparel are beginning to appear- in Europe. It's called "CE", and you'll see it in the form of armor, even here in the states. No such standard yet for things like thickness of leather, vs. Cordura, or types of seam stitching. However, follow your common sense and you won't go wrong- thick leather is better than thin, leather is more protective (but bulkier and warmer and less rain resistant) than textile. Funny how most motorcycle jackets sold today are textile, due as much to price as any other factor.

Re: "...First Gear products are not available online."



This was true for a long time, but no longer. FIRSTGEAR has opened up to mail order now. Many fine E-retailers, as well as old-school catalog companies, are now selling FIRSTGEAR.
