Looking for some riding gear. Who makes the best riding vests and jackets out there. On a tight budget so I need them to be affordable.

Looking for some riding gear. Who makes the best riding vests and jackets out there. On a tight budget so I need them to be affordable.
Big difference between the two extremes. "Best quality" riding gear is usually at a higher price point than what new riders are usually willing to pay. I have been there and done the exact same thing. I initially went with riding gear that was "affordable" and it served my purposes for a few years. LeatherUp has a good selection of affordable gear. I found as time went by, the true quality became evident when multiple zipper tabs began breaking; seams in the coat liner began to unravel; buckles loosened on their own.

This year, I decided that to get through another winter, I needed the higher quality riding gear. I purchased a new leather coat and chaps from Fox Creek Leather and could not be happier with the investment. I could tell immediately the difference in the type and thickness of the leather used to construct the coat and chaps. Both are much more substantial than my previous leather items. I am confident that my new coat and chaps will prove to be durable and hold their value for many years.

I'm just cheap with the dollar

I've bought the high dollar items and had Zipper issues and seams coming undone too . But it normally due to use and age and care

I bought my coat, vest and chaps from leatherup.com. No complaints

I wear the coat most of the year for the past 6 years and it still looks good. Take care of the leather.

I think I spent a total of about $220

I have received both of the HD FXRG (Med weight and the summer weight w/holes) as gifts...
The jackets are really nice, the zippers are bit light weight, and I do not think I would have spent the $$ if buying for myself...
The wife was real proud of getting them as a gift, so of course I "Love 'em."
