Finally found a great leather jacket!

harley women's leather jacketOne thing I love – in addition to my new handlebars (and the guy who bought them for me)? My new HD leather jacket! Yep, Zylstra had a great sale on leather gear this weekend, and Steve called me over to the sale tent to show me a really beautiful jacket that he knew was my size. Now I’ve written before about the lack of nice gear in women’s plus-sizes, and the merchandise manager at our local dealership has been assuring me that more plus-sizes are coming. (And, she’s been right! There are more of the really pretty women’s tops in the 1W-3W HD sizes in stock since the new Fall stuff came in, and I’ve been rewarding this as often as I can given my budget! LOL) Because most leather tends to run small, I was fully expecting that the HD 3W size would still be too snug for me – but, this jacket fit so-o-o-o perfectly, so we bought it. Now I no longer have to wear my Walgreens leather (yes – Walgreens!) – although I’ll admit, it has lasted several years and looked more stylin’ as soon as I added a cool HD patch to the back.

      Speaking of riding clothes for women, I’m partial to wearing long sleeved cotton tees. I try to avoid sun burn on my arms, and I don’t think its any hotter than going bare-armed. My long sleeved tees have got to have ribbed cuffs to keep the wind and the bugs out and I wish it were easier to find pretty colors. It seems like a lot of women’s tees do not have ribbed cuffs, so I go over to the men’s section and of course they’re mostly man colors except for the occasional yellow. With the huge increase in women riding bikes, it would be nice if companies would offer products to women that are more fit for riding.

      Hey there – sometimes the camping gear sites have good stuff. I’ve purchased some good warm gear and other stuff from Cabelas, and it looks like they have a couple different long-sleeve t styles. Try http://www.cabelas.com, and search under women’s wear.

      Corn Dog…..you’re not going to believe this – I just bought the same jacket on sale when we were on vacation! I love it! Love the fact it has handwarmer pockets (my other one did not) and that the neck snaps up nice & snug! Great minds think alike!

      Do you know the actual “name” of that jacket? I have been looking for that exact jacket for six weeks and do not know the name of it, i.e., diva jacket, spirit jacket, etc. Oh please help me find one, I have the same problem…. a real woman’s body. Thanks much, terian

      Terian, I’m sorry I don’t know the name of the jacket – it fit so I bought it! LOL It does seem like it’s probably an ’06 model though; it was on the deep discount rack and has a red lining, which I think was from 2006. The ’07’s have an aqua-blue lining. Sorry, not much help I know! ~ Janet
