so as i am barrowing a buddies bike until i can find a way to get my r6 i have been using his stuff but i want my own jacket atleast. i went to my local bike shop *the helmet source* great place btw friendly people good prices. looking at A* and icon u know th usual stuff and he pulls me away from the 5-600 dollar jackets and shows me the scorpion stinger jacket for much cheaper. says its a great jacket comparable to the A* except not so damned over priced. so i try it on. AWESOME! fit great sweet removable absorbent liner,super comfortable, looks absolutely b*tchin!! :YEA so needless to say i walked out with it paying about 2-300 dollars less then i thought i was going to. so whats everyones opinion on these any good? the reviews i have seen from sportbiketrackgear and a few other places saying its a great buy comparing it to much more expensive jackets.

so any input? ps mine is the stinger in white and black

Nice-what size did you get and how big are you. (I have a Exo-1000 Helmet and love it and need a new jacket) Anyway, no one around here sells the Exo wear so I have to order it-a camparision would be nice

i got the large which fits pretty snug with a shirt and a wife beater underneath. fits pretty firm still with liner removed. im about 5'10 to 5'11 about 180 lbs average length arms slightly wide shoulders and it fits great supppper comfortable and for 389 or whatever i paid for it and got a free get stung tee shirt you cant beat it. my buddy has a 700 dollar A* who said it feels more comfortable but he needs a speed hump.
