The Triumph UK website lists this jacket in leather, but the US version only has it in cloth (textile) can I still get it in leather in the states? or would I have to order from overseas? If I would have to order it, I would probaly go with the foxcreekleather V1.8 instead. Any ideas?

cheers, jason

Jason,

Did you contact your dealer to see if they can get the leather jacket?

I contacted my dealer, and "onyertriumph" over in england. My dealer said the "garrick" is not offered in leather, and the UK website is incorrect. And the english dealer said they have the leather garrick jacket and can ship it to me for 70 pounds. But if you add the price of the jacket......250 pounds, plus the 70 pounds for shipping, and factor in the conversion..............it works out to about $700 US dollars!!!!

I think I'll go with the foxcreekleather V1.8 instead.

cheers, jason

customcafe,

As weird as it sounds... it appears as though Triumph offers a slightly different clothing line up for each country. I was looking for a jacket and started with the Triumph ones too. If only the Rocket III jacket was plain... I could go for it.

I finally settled on the Fox Creek V1.8 as well. I'll vouch for their quality in craftsmanship. And the leather is waaaaay thick! The thing feels like it weighs ten lbs. But I really like mine!

FYI; It's a biker cut, so don't order too small.
