Yup! It just so happened that I was wearing leather the one time I went down going fast. (Hit some ice at 60mph+/-)

The three other on pavement offs while wearing Textile gear were all 35mph- All performed well...As in I did not get hurt. One of the Textile Jackets was toast (Fieldsheer) But I was happy and felt I got my $$$ worth. My Discovery and my Adventure (Belstaff/BMG) show no signs of their use.

I am sure that the MotoPort Ultra II Air Mesh Kevlar Jacket is a fine Jacket... It had better be. It costs as much as I paid for my Adventure, Challenger and Discovery combined.

Radioman has one and I know he likes his.
