Want to be a reviewer?

The following Leather clothing items are up for review:

> Bulletproof Style Vest
> Women's Vented Touring Jacket
> Women's Fitted Classic Jacket
> Women's Gloves
> Men's Distressed Brown Vest
> Men's Triple Striped Jacket

Contact Scarlett McGrady at www.foxcreekleather.com and visit their website to see the items.

Sorry - too late - within 12 hours, the quick got everything except the Bulletproof Style Vest! So unless you're interested in that, don't bother.

You will be required to post a detailed review here sometime in the spring/early summer. Decent writing skills required!
As Scarlett says, "We are not looking for any fluff, just an honest and tough review of how they fit, feel, and hold-up. Note: Anytime you purchase a Fox Creek Leather item we will post your review with a digital photo of you in your leathers with your bike on our site."
Also, as always, remember we want your review of the equipment you're using for this forum. Honest opinions help us all as well as the manufacturers. HUers are among the toughest users of motorcycle travel equipment on the planet, so our opinions matter!

Like it? Hate it? Say so here!

Thanks, Grant. I gave it a shot for the Men's Triple Striped Jacket, but I don't think it could handle the wet. I said that in my email to them, so if it goes elsewhere, that's fine by me.

I'm happy with my Aerostich, but it's too BMW/Goldwing for me. If this was the 1920s, I'd complain that bikes aren't as nice the 1908 models.

Well, my wife and I are now set up to put a jacket each through the paces here in Norway and further south in Europe in the spring. Keep lookin' as we'll be posting our review within June next year.

My wife will be testing this one: http://www.foxcreekleather.com/310.html while she rides her Moto Guzzi Breva 750, whereas I will test this: http://www.foxcreekleather.com/305.html on my BMW K1200GT and Ural.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine.
