Anyone else changed back from Textile to Leather
I have had so many so called water proof textile jackets that i have now found myself a good leather jacket and now i will team it up with some quality rain overgear. The textile stuff was being a real pain, starts raining, so pull over to put the wets on, but they dont go on they go in, whats next. take the jacket off, take the pants off, better take the boots off first to get the pants off and while you standing on the side of the road in your undies trying to zip in you gortex waterproof liner then redress again. Sick of it so i thourt i would go back to old school and looked at waxed cotton then found Claymore clothing in England a few e-mails back and forth and they did make leather but only do waxed cotton now. But wait a mo, we have one last jacket they had made, fitted with removable knox armor and they send my all the measurements and its the exact same size as the jackets i already have, its there last, no more so they give it to me for 110Quid, the wholesale cost of the leather used to build it. What a score. I will do a review in about 25 years after its broken in. Just the jacket for my R100GS or the R60/5
