Scorpion EXO Ladies Jackets?

I'm looking for a Scorpion EXO Women's Elektra Leather Jacket.
This

Anyone know of some companies that carry it?
I can't get it from Scorpion itself for some reason.

Also, does anyone here own any Scorpion gear other than their helmets?

I own a helmet and it's awesome, so I can imagine that their apparel would be good too. Oh and I tried on one of Scorpion's mens jackets at a store today, it seemed nice, didn't really fit me though.

I suppose I should just start calling places, I put in a special order request at Cycle Gear but I haven't heard back yet.

The men's jacket I tried on seemed pretty solid so I'm hoping the women's one will be too. I guess we shall see.

Holy crap, I guess I've been out of it. I didn't even realize Scorpion was making anything other than helmets.

Looks like no Scorpion EXO jacket for me. They haven't even started making them yet.

Alpinestars it is then. Or maybe AGV...

Scorpion has not received any of this gear yet; they expect it in the next 2-3 weeks. If you'd like any of the ladies gear, you may want to get on the list as new product like this goes FAST...

I just checked-out your portfolio; nice work! I'm a bit of an amateur photographer; if you get time, check-out my page http://www.patrickmcnealy.com

Well, the problem is I kind of wanted a jacket to use soon because I'll have time and the weather is nice but still chilly for my mesh jacket. It sounds like by the time I get a Scorpion jacket it will be a waste. Though I do really want it.

And I like your website, you have some nice work. As far as my work goes, most of the stuff on my website is kind of old. I've been busy trying to design a new one. My most recent stuff is here

Got my jacket!

Shortly after I started this thread I was offered a new job, and I started working at Northland Motorsports here in Flagstaff last week. Great job by the way, and it's a great dealership.

Meanwhile, I had special ordered an A* leather jacket from Northland, the Stella. I got it the day I started and was not happy with how it fit. It also did not have any ventilation. So I sent it back and they ordered me the Scorpion Nikki jacket. It was about $100 dollars cheaper than the A* and I got it today.

This jacket is awesome! It fits better than any jacket I've tried on before, and it looks nice too. It has perforated leather in the front and sides, as well as a removable liner and all the pads.

Pictures:


I hope to go get my bike in a week or so and then I'll see how it performs on the road.

I am thinking about picking this jacket up for myself. I just have a quick question about how this fits, if the sizes are two to the charts? Also is there any spine protection in this jacket?

I really like the look of this jacket and am thinking about getting him for myself. I just had a couple questions as there isn't a lot of information or review material for these jackets as they are so new. I was just wondering if the sizing is true to the sizing charts. I have a large chest with a small waist and I don't want something that will make me look boxy. Second does this jacket have any spine protection/back protection? I only see that there is elbow and shoulder protection. Other than that is there anything you could add to help me make up my mind. The other jackets I am debating on are the JR Trixie & the JR Jet Set. My only concerns with those jackets is heat as I tend to get really hot and don't want this to be an issue. Thanks!

As far as the sizing on this jacket goes, it seems to be true to the charts. I normally wear a small so that's what I ordered and it fits fine. I also have plenty of extra room in the chest and I am somewhat small chested so I think it would work well for someone well endowed too. Also, the jacket comes with a pad in the back, the reason it's not listed sometimes is that I believe it's not CE approved where as the other pads are. Though this means that it has the ability to put in a better pad if you choose.

I can't tell you how the jacket fits compared to the JR leather ones, I can tell you that it fits better in the arms and shoulders than the textile JRs. I don't have wide shoulders and I've found that the Scorpion jacket actually fits better in that respect than most jackets. Also, my arms aren't all that long which is usually a problem. The sleeves in the Scorpion are not perfect but not any longer than other jackets. As far as the hips go, mine are about average and it fits fine there as well. It's not too tight anywhere as to restrict movement but it's not so loose that the pads are not in the right places (which was a problem with the A* Stella).

I haven't worn any of these leather jackets while riding yet, even the Scorpion since my bike is still in storage so I can't give you a very good idea of how well it works unfortunately. I can tell you that the Scorpion Nikki has perferated leather in the sides and front as well as more breathable fabric in areas like the underarms. In comparison, the A* Stella jacket I had ordered had no ventilation at all. I don't know about the Trixie jacket but I suspect that something with zippered vents may work better.

I got the jacket to work well for colder weather rides so my main concern was the warmth but this one should work well for warmer rides too.

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.
