Or do you know anyone who has? How did it hold up? The company that manufactures our custom leathers will be offering roo leather very soon and I was thinking of getting one.

Thanks...

Motorcycle Consumer News tested gloves for abrasion and kangaroo was the best. Elk skin was also very good for gloves. The roo suit should work very well against abrasion.

I ws looking into one too. What kind of prices were they spewing?
Not confirmed prices yet but the off-the-rack stuff will be about $840 and custom roo suits will start at about $1,200, I believe. Custom cow leather suits start at $825.

Two Wheel Tuesday did a piece on leathers, and one of the factory Reps said roo leather was up to 3 times stronger than cow hide.

That would be worth the high price.

No, but my friend crash tested a Kangaroo when he was driving back from Adelaide. Unfortunately for the Kangaroo, his leathers didn't work too well, as he didn't make it. :whistle:

I really like Kangeroo's. They are cute and go hop hop hop!

Sime, sense you're from down under, do you look at them differently? More like us and a deer.

Chris, exactly the latter!! Mostly like pests.

Kangaroos are considered pests by the farmers and damage the land. Although they do have petting zoos where you can feed and pet born in captivity kangaroos.

They are cute, but like deer, don't look especially cute when they take the whole front of your car off at 70mph!!!!
