    Jacket Time

    Alright, so I like this:



    Moto GP Corkscrew Leather Jacket


    Durable, cowhide leather with perforated panels
    CE-approved protection for shoulders and elbows
    EVA foam back pad
    360 Jacket-to-pant zipper attachment system
    Race fit, tapered body and pre-curved sleeves
    Easy zip-out, insulated vest
    Reflective piping on front and sleeves
    YKK zippers
    Zippered cuffs with hook-and-loop waits tabs
    2zippered waist pockets
    Large interior patch pocket
    Interior vertical zippered chest pocket
    Stretch panel under arms for increased mobility


    I am even pretty close to caving in and shelling out the $350 or it.



    I am looking for a Jacket with a full circumference zipper to zip into pants, armor, a lota perferation, and it has to be leather. I want a jacket and pants that would work for any trackday down the line and that I can definatly wear as a jaket alone so it can't be too short.

    My question is:
    -Is MotoGP a good, trustable brand that will last down the road? I can't be buying jackets every year or every other at that.
    -What would your guess be for the life of this jacket, with the owner who takes care of everything?
    -Am I spending too much? Can I get an equally as good/better jacket for less?
    -Am I not spending enough? Should I be spending a little more for a way better jacket?
    -The MotoGP Apex jacket has the Apex pants, I have not been able to find any Corkscrew pants, the Apex pants will work with the Corkscrew, right?
    -Any other bands out there that I may be overlooking?



    Thanks.

    My A* TZ-1 jacket is pretty much identical to the "specs" on that jacket, but its got TWO pockets in the zip-out liner, not one.

    I have not been able to find the Perf'ed verson of the TZ-1 or even the TX-1.

    What is the material like from the armpit, down the inner arm, and to the cuff?
