Richa Cafe Leather Jacket - Black
Customer Product Reviews
Awesome jacket at great price
What can I say about this that has not been said before. Well first I hummed and hawed about purchasing a leather as I am very tall 196cm and with a middle aged body. My wife says I've got to much of a belly to wear a short leather but this one fits amazingly well. It has an extra 1 1/2 inches of leather at the base to ensure it is long enough to cover the belt buckle area and when fastened it fits perfectly and makes you feel amazing. Secondly the pockets are very roomy and the thermal lining copes really well in Scottish wintertime. Third point, the armour moulds around you well and gives u that confidence that you will have great protection. Finally, cannot go without sharing my thoughts about the customer care and service from Sportsbikeshop...outstanding!!! This jacket is top quality wear at decent prices that beats dearer gear hands down.
Great value, great jacket
Jacket is all round great, satin finish, supple leather (not too shiny but not matt) removable winter liner and armor, and adjustable waist. The jacket has plenty of pockets for odds and ends. I'm 5'7" and 38" chest, bought a 38 and fits spot on, sporty fit so may be able to fit a thin jumper underneath but not much more. There are some single stitched seams but the areas that tend to take most of an impact are double stitched. The armor is CE level 1 and for the most part is comfortable however the back protector can get annoying when you take the liner out, it is also quite tricky to put the back protector back in if you remove it. Style is minimalist and classy, can be worn as a day to day jacket without the armor and looks great. My only complaints are the poppers on the wrists, there is only one setting so if you have a short cuff glove (I have Knox Orsa's) you may struggle to close the cuff, I have to fasten the glove over the cuff. The other minor complaint is, I said before, the back protector, it isn't that ergonomic and can get uncomfortable if worn without the liner to cushion against it. All in all, you're getting a great jacket without breaking the bank.
Really good jacket, very warm while on the bike. Great thermal liner that can be removed while riding in warmer weather. Copes surprisingly well with rain, not exactly a winter jacket though. Good pockets, plenty of room for odds and sods. Good protection, feels safe, hope I never have to truly test it.
This jacket is awesome - looks great, simple, good quality. The leather is very supple and not too shiny (which I like). I'd say it's comparable in quality to jackets twice the price. I am 6'1" with a 39" chest and long arms, I have trouble finding jackets that fit - the size 40 in this is as close as I've found - wish the sleeves were about a half inch longer but other than that it's perfect. Also I live in the western United States (Seattle), I ordered this on a Thursday evening and it was delivered on Tuesday!
