ROADGEAR® wind-blocker and rain-resistor technology puts the XKJ Jacket and XKJ Pants in a class of their own.
They minimize the effects of Mother Nature with their liners in, and flow serious cooling air with the liners out—maximum airflow—through leather surface perforations.
Perfect for canyon carving or anywhere that considerable versatility is necessary for dealing with extreme temperature changes like mountain or desert riding.

WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY
"...if your riding style calls for leather the XKJ is it...for night visibility check the Dynatec reflective elbow and back panels.
"The XKJ has a solid, substantial feel, and would be the choice for full-on protection from the road with its leather body and individual protectors. On a cool day you'll feel the wind blowing through the perforations, but it's still warmer than most jackets here overall. On a hot day the perforations actually seem to accelerate the speed of the wind through them, so it feels cooler than a comparable mesh jacket. Yes it's expensive, but the XKJ is also handsome, provides excellent protection and has a greater temperature range than most jackets here."

"Roadgear has equipped this stout, perforated 1.2mm drum-dyed cowhide jacket with loads of technology. With the liner removed a good amount of fairly unobstructed wind flows through. In cooler or rainy weather, zip in the full-sleeve liner...and it gets downright cozy.
"Finally, here's a perforated jacket that takes wind and weather protection seriously, and that I can recommend for warm to marginal climates as it will function well on that occasional chilly evening ride or in a brief shower."
Rider, November 2007
"THERE'S JUST NO BETTER WAY TO SAY IT-I'M INTO LEATHER. I LIKE THE WAY IT LOOKS AND FEELS AND SURRENDERS TO MY RIDING POSITION.
"The XKJ jacket and pants attempt to anticipate anything the road may throw at you-wind, rain, heat, even a crash-without ever conceding an inch of style, and they succeed commendably well on all levels."
Rider, March 2007
"The first true set of do-almost-everything motorcycling leathers. And, isn't that enough?
"So, in the final analysis, just how good are the XKJ's? Suffice it to say that since I got mine they are the first set of leathers I reach for when I open my riding closet...Considering the variety of fine riding gear I have in my closet, that is really saying something."

"KEEPING YOU COOL...which is worse: road rash or heat stroke.
"Now you don't have to choose, ROADGEAR's new XKJ jacket and pants are designed for those who want the proven abrasion resistance of leather with the cooling air movement of mesh.
"Better yet, all that venting doesn't detract from protection.
"And for maximum versatility, the jacket and pants come with waterproof, breathable zip-in liners that keep you dry and block the wind on cool mornings.
"Put it all together and you get a riding suit that really lives up to the promise of comfortable summer protection."
