Hi Guys I have recently started riding (since jan 2013) and when i was buying my riding jackets and pants i bought the one with mesh. Dririder airride 2 and rjays pants. I really wanted to buy leather gear since it provides best abrasion resistance but thought when whether starts getting cooler i would buy one. I have done around 2000 km in last 3 months and I think I should invest in a leather gear now. I have been researching a lot to see what should i buy. I am a bit confused. will leather be OK for winter? I am not planing to ride on a rainy-day but will have some rain gear under seat for emergencies.I would also like to extend the leather jackets and pants to slightly hotter days therefore planing to buy a perforated version What should I buy? Rjays Vs Dianese (online) Vs Tiger Angels I would love to get TA since they are tailored and have a very good review but cost you 900 for a jackets are really worth? Rjays misstral II looks like a good jacket for arround 350 http://www.rjays.com.au/home/products/leathers-mistral-II-jacket.html will this be good enough? Dainese alien jackets looks great and i can get one of these from overseas for 483 delivered For pants i was thinking of this: http://www.rideicon.com/products/?productGroupId=66801 Looks like one of its kind in leather and i like the ability to easy on and off confusion with this is,it comes in mesh version too should i get the mesh version or not. What are your thoughts and recommendations.
