boots, vests, jackets, gloves

Not sure where most of you guys get your leather stuff from such as boots. I don't do the jacket or vest but after this cold ass spring have considered getting some chaps.

I get my stuff from leatherup.com and have for about 6years now. Good quality stuff and a damn good price. they have these soles on some of theirs that are xelement or something like that and those soles are amazing. Grip anything and it doesn't matter what kind of crap I have stepped in they don't crack, split, peel, melt or anything else.

I just ordered a couple more pair of boots and didn't know if anyone else might be interested since they do offer good deals.

I like leatherup. HAve ordered a textile jacket that I bought for 100 and sold after a few months for 100. and a few helmets I gave to a buddy.

I have a Vest From Legendaryusa.com Love it Real nice and thick
Jackets, I have a few now a HD jackat that my dad had made he gave me too heavy for him.
One Mr. Scary sent me that my girlfriend has already laid claim too the isntant she opened the box. and 2 cheap 2 and 3 dollar jackets that I bought at a thrift store for when I go somewhere I am not too sure of I dont have to worry about loseing one of my two favorite ones. (Will have to post a pic to show you all them)
Boots, I bought from academy/walmart and even HD. Now I am wearing shoes from Dyseone.com (Lowrider Shoes, bought at "Ross" 50 dollar shoes for 16) and another thrift store find were some Olathe Riding boots I wear (Really dig em)
Gloves are Mechanics MPact. Really like them.
Bought a LEather 1/2 Bandana with velcro on the back. Perfect for rain.
and 2 dollar sunglasses with padding at a local "Bodega"

Best glasses I have had are safety glasses. I get them for about 2bucks a piece they wrap around and block the wind well. I wear contacts so that is a concern. I have clear, yellow and dark I just buy them by the box which has 12pair in each.

I am not a fan of HD stuff. Yes it's good quality but it's just so overpriced. No complaints on the quality just the pricing. Leatherup I have consistently gotten a great product at a great price. I just ordered 2 more pair of boots, brown and black and paid $150 for them and free shipping. I can't beat that with a stick.

Yea post up some pics I am always looking for ideas on better ways to keep warm so that I can ride longer into the year.

Redwings, those glasses are very cool looking but what about your peripheral vision?

i never had a problem with them other than they grow feet and walk away. they make some like that with shaded plastic sides also and some with metal screens, those work better for side vision and venting so they don't fog up. the best thing is they don't blow off when you look behind you. I don't trust mirrors and I'm always looking over my shoulder for idiots and these glasses work.

I remember back in the mid 80's these were a trend for a while in the punkrock and alternative music crowds. I think I even had a pair back then tho they were probably a cheap knockoff.

My glasses do fog up because of how tight they fit to the face. I usually have some fogging till about 20mph when I first start riding.

Had to look up the tornado boots. Those are cool looking boots. Is the part for the toe sifter is that some kind of mesh?
