Q: What is the difference between standard, Premium and Elite versions?

A: Standard version is ~1.2mm Buffalo leather and is suitable for entry level of motorcycle protection and ideal for use as a style and fashion accessory available at a relatively lower cost. Premium and elite versions is top layer 1.3mm-1.5mm cowhide skin, has a softer texture, thicker grain and is also pre-treated dye to allow better robustness against everyday wear and tear. We recommend the premium cowhide leather option for robust quality for everyday and track day usage for the best available protection in this price range. 

Q: Where are your products made?
A: 90% of the gear sold by us is designed in the UK and Made in Pakistan by a selection of industry approved proven ISO quality controlled suppliers, and the other 10% is from either China or sourced within the UK

Q: What is a RMA
A: This means a 'Returns Merchandise Authorisation', and once requested by you, we will within 48 (office working) hours email you as a PDF file attachment. The RMA will contain a returns address and description of your merchandise along with other information related to your returns request.

Q: Can I simply come over to your address to see your products?
A: We are closed to the general public. Our products are either warehouse stored or are supplied to order so are not on display at our administrative office address

Q: Can I collect or try on size at your retail shop/outlet?
A: We are a wholly online internet based setup therefore do not operate via a retail outlet, which allows us to keep our prices low. For sizing please follow our size guide or email us for personal guidance and advise on sizing and product assistance

Q: Can you advise on correct sizing as I'm still unsure?
A: Yes we provide both email and telephone customer support.You can contact us using the webform here for a faster 24 hours response or give us a call for friendly professional advice on 020 3701 1967 (if your call isn't answered, please leave a voicemail and we will endeavour to call you back within 48 hours)

Q: Why is there a surcharge for 2XL+ sizes?
A: The surcharge is a manufacturing supplier on cost due to additional leather material used on product in those sizes. The cost also covers the added weight for shipping and additional raw materials cost

Q: Do your leather suits have a full connecting zip?
A: Yes, as long as the jacket and trouser chosen are ordered together as a 2 piece suit and (ideally) in the same size or no more than one size difference apart, then it will get both full connection length zip as well as an 8" universal connecting zip. For example you can match a (L) jacket to an (M, L or XL) trouser or visa versa to get a ¾ zip. However if you chose an (XL) Trouser with a (M) jacket, it will only get an 8" rear connecting zip. (note: some designs do not allow for mixed jacket and trouser sizes. This will be identifiable from the product description. Of course there are also 1 piece suits that do not have a connecting zip

Q: Are the leathers safe for track day use?
A: The Premium/Elite Cowhide (and Kangaroo) leather options is perfect for road and track day use as they are supplied with CE approved armour inserts. The Standard leather option is generally low speed road touring and occasional usage

Q: Can the leathers be supplied with CE approved armour?
A: Yes if you chose the premium or Elite leather option then your leathers will come supplied with CE approved armour inserts as part of the deal, with upgradable armour insert options as seen here

A: We accept online payment by Credit, Debit Card and PayPal. If you encounter any issues and are unable to pay online, we can take secure virtual terminal payments manually over the phone by calling us on 020 3701 1967

Q: Do you offer P&P discounts for multiple purchases?
A: Postage & packing is kept as low as possible, and are generally charged by weight and volume so discounts are not possible. However email us if you would like to discuss the bulk trade order discount option codes that we have available for approved traders/shop owners only

A: We will send you a 'In Production' notification within 72 hours of received payment which indicates your order is going through our system and is in progress either at the Factory or with courier

Q: Why does it take 14-21 business days for delivery of your leather motorcycle suits, jackets or trousers?
A: We are a direct online retailer and in order to keep prices low we often process and dispatch orders to be sent directly from our international factory base on a supply to order basis. This is reflected in the low upfront purchase prices for you to enjoy for our leather apparel

Q: Can I collect from depot as I'm not available during the day at home?
A: Unfortunately we are unable to personally contact local courier depots due to logistics.
