Default Cute new ladies gear from Power Trip

Well Power Trip has finally come to the party. Previously, their gear was Harley and Chopper oriented (they manufacture much of the "branded" gear for O.C.C., H-D, etc...). But now they're advertising in mags like Cycle World and 2 Wheel Tuner, and they've re-vamped their line with half a dozen CUTE new ladies (and some for the guys, too!) jackets.

Stiletto is DEFINITELY on my "must have" list....

Ok, I have some price info on some of the jackets:

MSRP on Stiletto (mesh) is $159

MSRP on She Devil (textile) is $219

Check with your local dealer.... the shop I contacted in Daytona (The Helmet Shop) does so much volume, their prices are much lower ($129 on Stiletto, and $179 on She Devil).

Ok, so we get to Helmet Shop, and *pout* my Stiletto accidentally got sold (they had gotten TWO shipments in last week, but being bike week, they FLEW through the new stuff).

Did try on the She Devil..... :drool Awesome jacket. Construction seemed very sturdy, fit was perfect, and the details are so cute!! She Devil (the textile) comes with a quilted nylon vest liner (zip out), while Stiletto (mesh) comes with a lightweight (like a windbreaker) liner.

They also had Vamp, and some of the new men's styles.... all of them were really sharp looking, and felt well-armoured.

We took some pics in She Devil, and I'll take some more in Stiletto after it gets here Thursday (they're shipping it to me for free due to the error, and I got a couple ball caps out of the deal :citadel).

Here's the front....

looks great, and looks like it fits well too! I've heard good things about the She Devil line.

It was here when I got home last night! YAY!!

First things first, I LOVE it. It's wonderful.... VERY well made, and just feels more substantial than my Joe Rocket Pheonix (which, coincidentally, I gave away to a friend's girlfriend last night, when I learned she wasn't wearing any "real" gear other than a helmet).

The armour in this thing is GREAT... the spine protector is every bit as thick/sturdy as the after-market one Chris bought for his Alpinestars jacket. It's literally about 3/4" to 1" thick, and HARD, but still flexible enough to be comfortable. The cuffs are lined with a soft fabric (like a brushed miscrosuede almost) and the collar is a rounded padded neoprene (very comfy!)

There are tons of adjustments at the waist and hip (elastic goring, an expansion zipper, and 3 rows of snaps) to get just the perfect fit.

My only complaint about it is it's not very long. It's about as long as the Joe Rocket Phoenix (and I'm probably spoiled by my Trixie, which has GREAT lower back coverage). BUT, I wasn't wearing a belt last night, so I didn't try out the belt "garters." It might well be better with that secured. I'll let ya'll know. :thumb

I wore it last night, with the liner in.... It was cool(ish) here (mid 50's on our way home, and a little breezy at the beach), and I was plenty comfortable with the liner in. I thought it would only be a vest liner, but it's a full long sleeved liner, with lots of snaps/secure points, so it doesn't feel all bunchy under the jacket.

I got MORE compliments on that jacket last night at bike night, though... everyone (guys, too) just loves it (and were all impressed it's as protective as it is cute!)

Wow, it looks really nice!

You could always add an extension to the bottom of the jacket if you wanted to keep that bit of cold air out, aerostich makes what they call a "forward lean elipse" that zips into their jacket. You could make your own, or buy theirs and take the zipper off and sew it on to yours.

Hmmmm... never even heard of such a thing! Very cool!

I'm not really worried about it from a COLD standpoint, since it IS Florida, and this is my summer jacket. But still, that's a cool idea.

thanks!
