Leather perforations compared to match.

Leather hates sweat,salt and body excretions destroy it from the inside out,cleaning leather is a royal pain. Rain and leather suck,takes forever to dry and become pliable again.

Leather is barely a memory for most street riders today,modern textiles have taken its place for most. For posing and playing superbiker leather has no equal.
It's hot where I am too, but I find my Vanson Hurricane to provide just as good airflow as a Scorpion textile mesh jacket that also hangs on my clothes bar. I like the hard GP armor better than the foam in the Scorpion too. I am a bit concerned about the deterioration with time, but how do you measure that?

I'm still breaking it in, but I went for a Spartaness 2-piece and am pretty happy with it. Fit is fantastic - mailed my measurements in from Germany - and the construction is quite good. Rivals what you pay 2-3x more for here in the Fatherland. Options were endless and I love the reflective piping. Seems like a little thing, but I love it. I really cannot think of anything to say that is negative. Attention to detail is very good. I have not crashed in it yet (thankfully), but good reviews from crashees led me to spend my money there.

For the price, it is fantastic. When I eventually decide to grab a onesie, I'll likely go back to Dave for it.
