I used them a couple of years ago. Biggest problem I had was with the sizing. I'm in between a medium and a large. Everything I read said their sizes ran small, so I ordered an XL jacket. When it arrived, it was still to small. Shipped it back (which I had to pay for from Alaska) and tried to order the XXL but it was out of stock. Ended up ordering a large HD FXRG jacket off of Ebay for about the same price I was going to pay for the X-Element. Not plugging HD stuff here, but the FXRG was 5 times the jacket the X-Element was in quality, comfort, fit and finish. That being said, I still don't think the FXRG is worth the $600 HD wants for it, but check out Ebay and other sources for used jackets. I went into the local HD dealer to try on the jacket before I ordered it to make sure the fit was correct...can't do that with Leather-up.

Just passing on my experience. Good luck which ever way you go.
