Fox creek rocks!

Bought mine off the rack at a Charlotte Bike shop years ago. I have the two-tone racer too and it has been great, but wish now I had the all black. Still looks like new after about 8 years. Its getting a little snugger across the stomach...but thats MY fault I also appreciate how effective the venting is. opening all the vents and zipping the main zipper about two thirds up circulates lots of air through it.

I still get a kick out of handing it to people and watching their reaction to how heavy it is

I also like how it doesn't smell. The chemical like smell of cheap leather bugs the crap outta me and sometimes gives me headaches. The Fox Creek has no odor. Just the rich feel of superb quality leather.

Back from my trip and the jacket performed very well, not a bit of chill for my upper body with temps in the low 40's and speeds of 75 to 80 on the highway. Wish I could have said the same for my legs, it was like walking around on a couple of popsicles for about 20 minutes after 120 miles to Mr. Jimi's. Might be looking at their chaps next, but it won't stay cold for long down here thank god.

All in all I am very pleased with the jacket and the service I recieved from FoxCreek, and would highly recommend their products unless they did not take care of Foldedhorn??

How about it Foldedhorn?? Did they finally take care of your problem??
Nicest looking and feeling jacket I've seen. I tried to get CJ to let me ride it home, after all, I had almost 7 miles to ride , but he wasn't fallin' for that .

I bought 2 pairs of the fox creek leather gloves. One guantlet and one regular lined pair and they are amazing. the leather is so soft it almost feels like I don't have a glove on.

I know I am resurrecting a dead thread here - but I wanted to RAVE about FoxCreek Leather myself. I ordered the vented racing jacket and chaps. The craftmanship is amazing! Like others, I couldn't believe how heavy it was, but when wearing it, the jacket seems light.

What I am really impressed about is the fact they are made in Virginia. I went down to the stealer looking through jackets, and they are all made in China.


If interested, they are at foxcreekleather.com

Just got a pair of gloves from them, very nice fit and feel.

I've been looking at the vented race jacket for some time.

...I think recently I even asked for a sample of material...

...just got to come up with the $$$
