I am looking VERY hard for a leather jacket. So far, I have read mixed reviews about the JR Blaster. How does the Blaster compare to the a Vanson Mach 2 or 3? I know there has to be some differences, but at twice the price does the Vanson really justify it's cost?

FWIW - this jacket will be used to protect me for street riding and canyon carving - my bike is not really set up for track use.

Any leather is far better than no leather, but if you can afford it, I don't see why you wouldn't go with the Vanson. I will say though, that if you're thinking of getting a Vanson, just get black, because it will more than likely outlast your bike and matches anything. Think of it as an investment. It will last for yeaaaaaaars. Can take a few crashes too. This thread has some interesting stuff about Vanson, I don't know if it's the same jacket you're talking about, but apparently they prefer the 2 over the 3:

If you're getting this custom made there are also other places to look...
