The leather on the Cortech LNX jacket varies in texture from the white to the leopard print.
The texture of the white leather is thicker and appears to be more durable, while the leather with the leopard print is somewhat softer and more supple.
The white leather down the arms is perforated, with the leopard print leather used for the gussets. Inspection of the jacket reveals a well constructed product with solid seams and straight hems.
Other features include zippered closures at the wrists, two zippered pockets that lay flat and accordion-style leopard print articulating panels at the shoulders and waist to better individualize the fit.
In addition to the leather construction, the jacket has thick removable CE-approved armor at the shoulders and elbows.
It was easy to remove and reinsert the armor in the Velcro sealed pockets. Cortech also added an unexpected feature in a removable back protector as an extra safeguard.
From “H.W.”: “I wanted the LNX jacket but was dragging my feet, because I wasn’t going to be riding for months after being hit from behind (by a 93 year old driver!).
But your review convinced me to go ahead rather than risk missing out on it.
It looks fabulous on and looks top quality. I can hardly wait to try out the features on it.”
From “P.L.”: “I had just read the review of the LNX jacket and then happened to see one at my friend’s shop in the Leopard skin pattern by coincidence so I bought it, it was on sale for $159.99, which I agree is a steal.
One thing that wasn’t said is that the combination of the pattern with the white in front and back is a good way to make me look like I lost 10 lbs.!
I think the review is accurate as to this jacket.
I do wonder if the leather will get softer over time, it is kind of stiff. I’m not sure about the way it’s sewn together, but it is a great jacket for the money.”
