Default victory leather jacket

has anybody tried on the new leather jackets?how is the quality?i was looking at the new attitude jacket that has the zip out hoodie.my question is would you order a bigger size since it has hoodie inside and if so if i wear it without the hoodie would it be to big?no local dealers have them so i can not try it on.

I bought one and I love it. The reason I bought it was for the enormous zippered vents. They flow air very well. The jacket is typical heavy MC quality material and exceptionally well sewed together as far as I can tell. Coming from Victory, it's also reasonably priced for what it is.

I was at the dealership in Columbus, GA and was looking at one. It was really nice, but they wanted $566.00 for it. Online I have seen them in the $490 range, seems a little high, but I haven't bought a good leather jacket in a while. You like it huh? I really did like the way it looked and it seemed pretty decent quality.

Where is the jacket made? I'm sure not in the US, probably China.

If you want "Made In The USA", take a look at Fox Creek Leathers.com. I have some of their leather pants ( they have chaps too ) and they are really good quality (lifetime warranty on zippers, snaps and such) and they have a thirty day return policy if your not happy with the fit or whatever. I just checked their site again and they have a sale going. Their web site is "killer". No, I don't work there, just love my pants. Good luck.

That is not the exact same one they had at the dealership. I believe it was made in China, and the victory logo on the back was in color not just Black. I like the one you link to better and that seems like a much better price thanks for the link.

I will also check out Fox creek website.

Thanks for the Fox Creek link T-man! I keep a list of Made in the USA stuff in my browser favorites. It makes me wonder sometime why so many people are fixed on getting an American bike or cager but when it comes to the clothes they wear, the tools they use, etc it does not bother them to buy foreign. I know some people don't care and that is fine but I've seen many posts where people said they bought a Victory because it is made in the USA but have other posts where they said they got this or that and it is made in asia or some other place.

Plus 1 on Fox Creek. Due to health reasons I needed to loose weight so I have my very large one for sale here in classifieds. I will be getting another closer to spring when I see what size I will need.

How does Fox Creek fit. I am 5'10 185 and normally would take an XL in a leather. Hate to order and have to send back. I try to buy only USA made products
