I have, didn't have any. Every other site that does have it, is either sold out, doesn't have my size, or is asking msrp ($400)

I was able to get revzilla to pricematch it at $290, so I still think that's a really good price for something that was selling for $450 a few months ago.

Here's where I came across people having some probs with A* zippers, but I wouldn't know if it's only specific jackets.

I really like the look of the jacket, and the fact that it has the removable liner\pads. I'm just a little unsure if I want to spend that much on a jacket though. Are the A* jackets really worth spending the cash on?
Wow, I just checked the jacket you like, it's something Steve Urkell would wear to trigana.. trigam.. triganomatery class. It's got a collar for f$%ks sake.

The zipper pull tab has broken off on both my astars jackets.
The last one in my hand as I rode away was adjusting the zip & bam there it is.
Put it in my pocket, later i got the Dremel out & drilled a little hole & used ballistic nylon thread to fix it.

haha thanks guys, I already placed the order this morning though. The sales guy from revzilla was really nice, also said if I didn't like it or if it didn't fit I could easily return it. Once it comes in I'll see how I like it. I didn't really like the collar much either but we'll see how it is.

LOL it's all good. I agree with the collar, however I do really like the rest of the jacket. Reviews on it said the leather is thick, comfortable and with good perforation with removable CE armor, which is something my current jacket lacks. My current jacket is about 30 years old that a cop friend gave to me when I first got my EX500 a few years ago. The inside fabric is completely torn, the zippers are broken and it's a bit snug on me, but I've been living with it for whatever reason. I've really needed a new jacket so we'll see how this one is. I'll be sure to let you guys know. Heck maybe I'll find some Urkle type glasses and snap a shot haha

30 years old, damn that's an antique.
yeah Id say just about any jacket on the market will be a big improvement.
As for that collar,? were it mine Id proly take a pare of scissors to it.
Anyway after living in that antique, I'm sure your going to like the new jacket.
