Got some Xmas money to spend on a proper jacket (£150 ish)

Went to local J&S.

Tried on an IXS Montevideo...nice jacket...large...."Firm" fit but OK (still losing weight :)) £220 in sale.....:rolleyes:

Tried Alpinestars one..Large...Goretex...OK...same fit.awkward zips..£220 in sale...:rolleyes:

Looked on e....bay...Like the look of Buffalo Endurance Jacket ..£116 ish.

Nowhere to try the Buffalo on.....can any of you advise me how their sizes come up?..or is there a shop that sells them down this way?

I don't like to buy stuff I can't try on really but, realistically..this one is the only one in my price range at present....:(

Spada looked OK too.......same problem though.

Thanks Kevin.

Being a larger chap i was advised to get one of these since the size 48 chest has a litle extra room since due to having broad shoulders i find most jackets are too restrictive in the shoulders:

ARLEN NESS Dominator 2 W/P Jacket - Only £169.99 - BIG BIKE BOOK UK

I have a Spada jacket as well but dont find it's a very good fit. It's more like a bomer jacket with flimsy armours where as the Arlen-Ness one is L2 armour.
I bought mine from Hein Garicke so maybe worth poping in there to see if they have any from last year going cheap?

I `ve had a frank thomas with the winter insert for over 3 years now and still brilliant, infinity do them.

or have a look on ebay under heinrik gerkel -or somthing light that. they have regular returned stuff at bargin prices and you can try the new stuff on at the local store and save a fortune-but no warrenty with seconnd hand.
