BryanL wants to know Dino or Syn?
I picked mine up Thursday and went on a four day ride Friday. I went with the regular cow hide and it's heavy as hell, but I've never been happier with a jacket before. There's nothing that compares to having a properly fitted jacket when riding.
When I picked up the coat it was really stiff and I asked about a good way to break it in quickly. They told me to throw it in the dryer for 30 minutes without heat. Then put the treatment on it. The dryer trick worked really well.

no sh*t ? the thought about the dryer went thru my head but i thought for sure it would mess it up
i kinda figured it would be like a baseball mitt when we were kids ,,, just go sit on a curb and start working it
i actually stood mine up in the corner
its medium cow skin and there is absolutly no way i could wear it for any length of time the way it is now
i wont need it till september

Langlitz

When you guys talk about the price of a quality leather jacket like Langlitz you forget about all the shiny chrome stuff that you (and me) hang on your bike that will never do you you any good if you take a spill. If you've ever been in an accident you know what leather can do for you, not some cheap made in China jacket but something good, you get what you pay for. I wear a heavyweight cowhide Langlitz jacket and Langlitz goatskin jeans, my brother has a vintage Vanson that is excellent quality also. Langlitz has the BEST guarantee period! Call and talk to Dave (the owner), he told me to wear my new jacket for 6 months and if I wasn't happy he would refund my money or make me a new one, the absolute best company I've ever dealt with!

Fourdays wants to know Dino or Syn?
I have owned a Langlitz jacket and pant set since 2001 and I only wish I had ordered a set sooner! I live on the West Coast but have I have ridden back to Colorado five times wearing the Langlitz leathers in every type of weather possible and they are great. The function and fit are second to none in my opinion. I had owned several other makes through the years and custom quality leather is worth every penny. The customer service is like going back in history. If money is a hurdle do some hunting on ebay, if the size is right you can get some great deals there.

Beck's Noreaster in Horsehide. Had one for years and finally out grew it. I hve owned alot of leathers through the years and without a doubt the finest, toughest jacket made. You can still get them through Legendary leathers but not in my size unforturnately. You had to wear it though and Lexol it alot to break it in. You couldn't stab through the damn thing and I am thankful for that, at least one time I was thankful for that fact. keepem sharp

PS I currently interchange between a Branded jacket made in the USA and UNIK Ultra made in India. The UNIK is a very heavy excellant jacket. Leather lined pockets too so I can carry my .45 in the inside pocket. You know when you put it on too, as I gain about 10 lbs due to the weight of the jacket.

Time to revise the thread.

Earlier this year I flew to Portland for the sole purpose of being measured for a new set of leathers & boots.

Just received my custom-made goatskin summer breaches to match the summer weight goatskin jacket. The best motorcycle leathers available! (Sorry- Vanson & Fox Creek fans but they just don't match up to custom hand made leathers.)

By the way, at the same time I was measured by Langlitz, took a trip to Wesco in Scapoose for custom made boots. (Sorry- Red Wing fans but they just don't match up to custom hand made boots.)

You'll pay a good bit for it but there isn't a better made jacket or boots out there. No offense but unless you've ever had custom made clothes (a bad habit picked up years ago living in NYC) you just wouldn't understand the difference.

Bayard wants to know Dino or Syn?
just got the call that my new Columbia jacket is ready to pick up. It's a replacement for one that was stolen from my home. I placed my order back in 1978 for my first set of leathers and have to say my pants and ya that stolen jacket are or where in perfect condition after so many years. those of you thinking the cow skin is just to stiff, wow they break in fast and I rarely climb out of my pants. In 78 a set of pants and jacket ran around $800, now the set is around $2000. seems a lot but they will be the last set of leathers you will need , unless some one rips them off. well worth the investment.

I'm just tickled pink as retail is about $800
The jackets turn up there pretty often on ebay in regular sizes and even some extra small & large.
The pants I got were from a guy with an "in" at Langlitz.
He gets the reconditioned and overstock stuff that has been there too long and ebays it all.
http://search.ebay.com//search/searc...title=langlitz
I was lucky since he's also in Portland and I'm only 40 miles from there so I was able to go pick them up.
Great leathers and I know you'll enjoy them for a lifetime.
I have a pair of their paints...they run more like 1100.00

Whats does the Columbia cost? I am waiting for a catalog right now. I really like what I have read and love to support small American buisness.
