Gotta say, I've never heard of that brand, but maybe someone here has come across it.

From what I have read on other sites, the EXL gear does not have very good reviews. The lack of triple stitching, the pants and jacket zips not matching, basic leather - are some of the comments. Do further research. The best solution was to purchase "last year's stock" or end-of-season sales for quality goods at a lower price.

The world is not going to finish today, as it is already tomorrow in Australia and New Zealand, and other islands of foreign nations such as Guam and Samoa.

I am with Redial on this. From what I have read about the gear it gets more negatives than positives. Only way to judge gear is to crash test it!

Not what anyone really wants to do!

Aww Guys too late....

I pick it up yesterday. At flea market I waited until they were about to pack up and made the deal with the wife..She was happy to unload said it was part of her husbands pipe dream of riding a motorcycle that he cant even find in the garage anymore.lol Looks very well built nice thick material armor in all the right places...Zippers look and work good stitching is tight liner is a full liner down thu the sleeves and zippered at the end also lots of zippered vents.
It was easy to to test the waterproof claim, Just hope I never have to test the crash part...

Looked good to me and the price was better that good 80 bucks for 2 of the same jackets and pants..
all with there tags still on them..... I guss time will tell......

thanks for your input...
