I've been trying on various leather jackets and had differing opinions from the store staff on the fit. One shop had me zipped up so tight that I couldn't really move much, but said that the leather would give so its better to get a smaller tight fit. (and that the leather needs to be a tight fit so it doesn't rub when you fall off and slide along the ground) I was unable to take the jackets off on my own. Another shop had me in a comfortable feeling jacket. eg. casual fit. I was able to remove the jacket on my own. I'm not sure whats the go here - or do the guys in the shops enjoy zipping girls into tight jackets for fun ??? $500 - $600 is a lot of money to blow on a jacket that turns out to be the wrong fit. Will be going to bikemart night as I'm now a member, but I think the staff will be too busy to help with fittings? (I need to buy everything - all my stuff is trail bike gear) Rabbit.
