Seems like good quality, but a bit pricey, and armor is extra. American made, though, and that's a plus!

Does anyone have any feedback on Fox Creek jackets? It looks like it's well made with good protection (1.4 - 1.6 mm leather plus armor).
I've been wearing a complete Fox Creek leather suit since 2004. Although the model that I have is discontinued and I have a seperate Bohn armor suit that I wear under my leather. I highly recommend Fox Creek. Their quality and customer service is far superior to anything else that you will find.

I compared a friend's Fox Creek to both my Olympia and my Dianese jackets and found the Fox Creek leather to be stiffer. Maybe it is just thicker and stronger but it was not as supple.

Re: Fox Creek Leather Jackets on Sale for Memorial Day

I decided to get the Grayson Fox Creek jacket. I like it's classic look. it's not Marlon Brando with all the zippers, it's not adventure rider with umpteen cargo pockets and it's not rocket rider. It's a simple, elegant design that goes with my RT, my Harley cruiser and my Triumph naked.

The leather weight is incredible. I got it with the Forcefield shoulder, elbow and back armor. It is a massive piece of quality work - 9 lbs in total for a size 42! I also like that it is made in the USA and has a lifetime warranty.

I have a Motoport Air Mesh jacket for warm weather so this jacket is for 75 degrees and below. It comes with a removable full length insulated liner.

The main thing I wanted to pass on is that if anyone is thinking about this jacket, it is on sale right now. (I missed it by two weeks but they did give me some store credit. that was nice of them!)

The size runs tight so I recommend getting it one size larger than your normal size. Definitely go one or two sizes larger if you order with full armor and may want to wear a sweater or sweat shirt underneath.

BTW the Forcefield armor is quality stuff! If you order both the arms and back armor, order the Body Armor Set and save $5. They installed the armor for me.

Also you will love the way the leather scent fills the closet. You will know that you got one helluva jacket.

I've been wearing that jacket for about 4 yrs now. I crashed in it going over 70. I'm still wearing the coat, no road rash etc, just broken bones and stuff.

I use all the armor in the jacket.

I did have to send it back as the inside was sewed incorrectly (shoulder armor was in the wrong place) but s-happens.

primarily, above everything else I liked the jacket and the simplicity and functionality of it.
