Legendary USA Phoenix Leather Motorcycle Jacket $470
Now this is a cool jacket. It doesn't double as a tent, a backpack or a rain poncho (though a water-repellent treatment has been applied to the leather). The 1.2mm cowhide outer is soft and broken in. The metal zipper and hardware are nickel with an antique finish. The styling is that of a traditional collared motorcycle jacket but with western touches like the "V" upper back panel, side adjustment laces and leather zipper pulls. Legendary USA hasn't forgotten about storage, either, with two front zippered pockets plus a zippered chest pocket and two inside pockets. And the Phoenix is just as beautiful inside-the vest area of the liner features iridescent red satin (with soft nylon lining the sleeves) and lightweight insulation. The jacket has a nice feel with arm movement eased by large gussets behind the shoulders, though the sleeves are cut too generously. Also, the only venting comes by way of a few eyelets under each arm, and there's no body armor. But there are welcome touches; collar ends have snaps to keep them from flapping in the wind, and the jacket is union-made in the USA.
Notes: A blend of style and quality workmanship, the Phoenix is built to last.
