There was a guy who posted a couple threads about leathers and stitching and such that were VERY informative a couple weeks ago. He was a new member, and his first 5 or 6 posts were big articles about various product reviews. Someone should dig them up, I'm too lazy.
I don't believe that. My A* jacket is the best quality I've seen. Better than JR or Shift or Icon. Never seen Dainese in person so I can't say about that.
It would be the best you've seen if you're comparing it to JR, shift, and icon. Their stuff isn't great either.
I don't really believe that either but out of curiosity, what would you recommend?
I'm going to get a custom suit eventually... will be the same money as an a* or dainese off the rack, and will hold up better, from what I've read/seen, not to mention fit perfectly. Vanson, Zee, Syed, etc. That's where you get your money's worth.

Exactly. Read the reviews. Alpinestars doesn't hold up like it used to.
Yup. It's fine if it doesn't hold up as well as it used to. But the price continuing to rise is what pisses me off. If you're going to pay that much for something, it should be the best. They are just selling their name now.
Even before I went down at the track, one of the seams on my gp pro gloves started coming apart a little bit, just from putting the gloves on and off. Fluck that. I have been thinking I will write them a letter and bitch, maybe get some free gp techs. That's the only decent glove they make.
