hi….. i am a student on a tight buget. I am interested in buying a jackect i saw on leatherup.com (more specifically the “Men’s Advanced Armored Padded Black Motorcycle Jacket”) and is looking for info on these all leather x elements jackets, how’s the quality and stitching, is the armor in them good?January 19, 2009 at 8:40 pm #15814Sangria7Participant
Hey I actually own that jacket…and I love it.
It is a great jacket overall. Liner is a bit thin but then again its a leather jacket.
I rate it 9/10.January 20, 2009 at 9:33 pm #15862MichaelMParticipant
thanks for the info!January 22, 2009 at 3:52 am #15888AtlusParticipant
how is the sizing on xelements? Im considering getting one but I’ve heard mixed things about the jackets running “small.” Im about 5’7 and 140 pounds and usually wear smalls…January 22, 2009 at 1:05 pm #15905Sangria7Participant
Sizing run small so get one size larger than normal.January 23, 2009 at 9:12 am #15935BenParticipant
I have some of their leather pants and they are really good. Got em for like 60 bucks.

I’m still pretty new to riding, and I only own one jacket right now. It’s a slightly different X-Element from leatherup.com.
I bought the jacket in August, and even then, with the vents open, it was not too hot as long as you’re moving. With the liner in and a couple of thin layers under it, it’s been fine down to about 40 degrees, which I’ve decided is the limit for my hands. I second the comments about them running a little small, so try some jackets at your local shop before you order.January 27, 2009 at 11:27 pm #16073DaggerParticipant
This was the jacket I decided on.. So far it’s been great in every kind of weather we’ve had.. I would definitely buy a size up though.. This one is a lil snug on me.. But I figured, better snug than too loose.. My next one I might get a lil bigger…

anybody want to post some pics? Its always hard to tell the actual fit/look of a jacket from the display image
