NJK Leathers

Does anyone have any input good or bad about NJK Leathers?
http://www.njkleathers.com/

I like that they're a local company and the price is sure right! The features seem up to par, but I've never heard of them until now.

I would love to hear some opinions from people that actually own and use this brand...

TIA

This is the first I've seen of them. The specs are typical, didn't look at prices but you can figure that out yourself. The only things I didn't see that should be noted are whether they use double stitching on their seams (key for those unfortunate get-offs) and the reasoning for brass zippers.

The zippers are odd to me. Brass isn't the strongest material in the world and I've never had an issue with rusting, which would be brass's big plus I would think. Most manufacturers use YKK zippers, which are quite beefy and the teeth are large to greatly reduce the chances of the zippers coming appart once they're zipped up.

HTH

EDIT: One other thing. It doesn't say what kind of armor is included. Hard is normally preferable over foam.
