Well I am looking at a leather coat. What do you guys think about the Joe Rocket Blaster 2.0 Leather Jacket. I have never owned a leather sport coat so I have no idea on size. I was thinking about a 48 or a 50 I think are the sizes. I am 6 feet 195 pounds. Any suggestions on other coats would be helpfull also.

ive heard good things about joe rocket and its reasonably priced. not sure if that model has full armour but i strongly suggest it, including an integral back protector. Vanson makes several great jackets as an alternative. very well made, heavy duty armour and leather.

Make sure you try it on, leathers should fit snug so they stay in place when you hit the ground.

I am 6'2" and 195 and I am right at a 46. Forget dress jacket size, leathers fit much differently. Find somewhere you can try it on first.

Apuddy, check out the Hein Gericke stuff. I have a nice jacket that is black and white 1.2-1.4 mm thick, soft armor. Buy it a little big, and you can fit what ever armor you wish under it. They also make a pant for that jacket that has tight ankles and plenty of room for full tuck and it zippers all the way around for track day. You just have to put your own slider on and you have a great set of leathers for under 500 bucks. PS, Joe Rocket sucks.
