leather weight

OK, so I am losing weight. Gonna try and get down to 187-190. My Van son leathers weigh a ton (I'll weigh them later). They're a size 52, I am 6 foot 2 inches.

so what are the lightest, safest leathers out there? The Vanson seem like overkill sometimes, they are so heavy. And I'm not going to crash going 200 mph on the straight.

lighter evil

There is a considerable difference (maybe 5 lbs) between the older style VANSON single zipper with no perferations and the newer stle Twin zipper Velocity, Fully perferated.
Vanson lost my suit that I sent in for repairs! Not sure if they are going to give me a replacement suit with no cost to me.
I'll stay with Vanson if they make good on this issue. Tested their product twice last year. Good stuff.

Nah, he just bought the custom assless version.
Got home to find a message on the answering machine from Vanson.
They finally found my leathers in the warehouse! It's been about 6 months since I sent them in for repairs. Wooo-hooo. These are my skinny leathers so I better get one that diet like Scott had done.
Vanson Rocks.
