Well Bill , I have a Joe Rocket Textile . Not sure what the model is called but it's the one that looks like the race replica .....with all the labels of different sponsers on it . It's OK but I'll try another brand next time . It's not much cooler than my leather jackets but does fit better .

Thanx for replying guys on the jacket keep them comming I have to make a decision here pretty soon if I want to take it to the Busa Bash in a couple of weeks ... I orderd a pair of textile pants couple days ago they were the Joe Rocket Ballistic 5.0 they look to be pretty nice . I ordered them from New Enough . I'ts hard to find stuff to fit right mostly if your short and stocky like a stump lol.. but I figuare that Im not the only one out here with this build and some one will come along and say HEY I'M a STUMP ... hehehehe

Peace guys&Gals

I have one from Bates Leathers in Long Beach, CA. I love it as well. Try different ones on and take the one that feels the best to you!

I'm a bit stumpy myself and I find Firstgear fits me best. I have a winter(Kilimanjaro) and a summer mesh and love them both.I haven't been able to find riding pants that fit right.I thouight I finally found some yesterday.Paid for them and everything.When I got on my bike the crotch was too tight and I could'nt get my feet on the pegs right.Then the next size up was too big.I think you'll find getting jackets much easier....Good luck

Thanks for you advice Ill let you know how the Joe rocket pants fit ..
