Hi guys looking for a leather jacket within the $600-700 mark. What is the best jacket for this price?

Suggestions?

I have an A-star 1 piece and I love it. My regular riding jacket is a Hot Leathers I got for $80 and it's survived a few crashes. You really can't go wrong with leather. You're best bet is to try them on and see which one fits you best as their tailored differently. Dianese tends to fit European body types better. Joe Rocket and such tend to fit more American body types.... Yes, I'm trying to be slightly less offensive... :p

Follow spoohp's advice and try on lots of jackets. When I was hunting for leather I was really discouraged at first because it was really hard to find one that fit right. The A stars fit was exactly what I was looking for and I spent the whole last season in it (about 10,000 kms) Price was right too, I found it at one of the local bike shop's big sale they do on the bike show weekend every year, paid $300 plus tax (CAD)

I am not quit sure that i have entitled to give an advice on the matter, but nevertheless I prefer to buy on this resource "www.fc-moto.de" .

Actually I do not know how you will approach it because it is located in Germany, but there is enough a wide choice of goods at relatively low prices

I had ordered a moto shoes and i am planning to order a leather jacket "Alpinestars GP-Pro Leather Jacket 2011"
