So I've started a search for leather. I currently own an old leather jacket and some draggins. I ride to work every day, a fair distance, so what I am after is a more touring orinented set up. I'd also like a thermal liner for winter and some armour, just in case. At this stage I haven't decided whether I want a 2-piece or just a jacket and stick with the draggins. What has struck me so far is most of what is out there is either race oriented of cruiser oriented. There is not much sports-tourer/commuter/tourer out there. Also, everything seems dear. There is not much in the wasy of 2-piece stuff for less than $1600. and I'm very skeptical about construction. I've seen some stuff fall apart in small crashes because of single stitching. So buying a US brand over the internet is pretty much out. Also the US stuff doesn't seem cheap enough? Any thoughts anyone? How do you rate the varies brands? e.g. is Spidi a lower quality than Alpinstar. Are dianese overrated? The AGV products seem a bit cheaper. Is that reflected in the quality?
