I have had their mesh jackets before...and gloves. Both were great but their sizes tend to run a little small. I had to go a size up on both. I haven't had the speed freek but the other stuff I have seen of these is pretty good.RBC827 said:There is a leather riding jacket that I like the looks of by FirstGear called the Speed Freek. Was wondering if anyone has had experience wearing their stuff and could recommend them or not.
What size jacket do you wear? I tried on an AlpineStars jacket yesterday and found that the 44 was a bit tight and the 46 was just a little loose.Bill_B said:I've got the Speed Freak (Silver). It's a good quality item - made really well. Their sizes do run a little small, I suggest trying it on (on bike) before buying.
I've also got one of their leather Mesh-Tex jackets (silver) for the really hot days. I would say their quality and durability is very good. I would put them above Joe Rocket, for example. I believe the Speed Freak has a 10 yr warranty.

I've got a 42, but I'm of the short, stocky kind, so the chest is a wee tight while the arms a tad long.RBC827 said:What size jacket do you wear? I tried on an AlpineStars jacket yesterday and found that the 44 was a bit tight and the 46 was just a little loose.
