I'm just about to purchase my first set of road bike gear am looking at an Alpinestars textile jacket. I haven't been able to find one round my area and haven't had a chance to venture into the city with all the work on the bike and now the car having blown a motor so I was considering importing from America I found this site: - www.kneedraggers.com Which ship internationally and the prices seem quiet reasonable. For comparisons sake the leather version of the same style jacket I want is $899 in stores here, from the US it'd cost $550 shipped (not including customs import duty if they get ya) The textile will set me back about $300 shipped (as above) and I love the style and haven't seen anyone with a textile one in Aus yet so I'd feel a little special :wink: I'm all for supporting Australian business but with savings like that assuming customs don't get me for too much it's a steal. Most other textile jackets I've looked at locally have been ~$300 and nowhere near as sexy as the Alpinestar I have to go and try on the leather version so I can work out the sizing but other than that & import duty I can't see any problems with it. Has anyone done something similar before and could offer some advice?
