I usually don’t get into the “Check out this sale!” thing but I just received a note in my inbox that MotorcycleGear.com (formerly NewEnough) is blowing out their remaining stock of the AGV Sport Compass jackets. This textile/leather jacket is one of my favorites as it combines the durability of leather in impact areas with the lighter weight of textile used in the rest of the shell. I reviewed this jacket back in January of 2017 for webBikeWorld so you can get all the details but I’ll sum it up real quick in case you want to waste no time getting in on this deal.
The styling, as you can see in the image to the right, is a sport riding cut combined with a classic brown textile material. The leather is buffalo leather which doesn’t lay as smooth as cowhide and it has a different texture than cowhide adding to the jacket’s unique appearance.
Shoulder and elbow armor is included but no back-pad comes with it short of the piece of foam that helps the pocket maintain shape. The shape is a bit wonky but I purchased a back-pad made from viscoelasitc materials I could cut to shape with some heavy scissors. Oh, and there is a quilted vest liner included for cooler days.
Sizing runs slightly snug. Frankly I like my gear to be snug so it can stay in place better in a crash. If you like a “fitted feel” order your normal size but go up one size if you prefer a more relaxed fit. Keep in mind that at the time of this writing there are only L, XL, and XXL sizes left.
