Spidi Seven Leather Jacket

Have a chance to get a like-new Spidi jacket off craigslist for my son for a very reasonable cost. Anyone have comment on this jacket? Seems to be well made and has CE armor. I've heard good things about Spidi but never owned their stuff. Thanks.

Many of the racers use Spidi, good quality leathers.

I'd rank it with Dainese leathers.

When I was in the market for leathers it was between Dainese and Spidi.

I use a 2 piece Spidi for spirited country rides and trackdays. Not a single complaint.

I have a Spidi suit... like it a lot. In the process of ordering the NRG jacket but having a problem with the sizing. What they sent me was mislabeled, or sizes run large.

The Guy who created Spidi apparently used to work with the creator/s of Dainese. That is why if you look at the two lines historically, you will find similarities between the two.

They are quality products, they also use top grade leather and their worksmanship is top notch... well almost... there is this other company called V something .. ahem!

Basically, you can't go wrong with Spidi.

I don't know what you are paying, but here is another place to get that same jacket cheap.

Thanks guys. You talked me into it. Everything I read here and everywhere about Spidi was positive. Not a single negative comment to be found. I picked up a brand new Spidi Seven for $300 shipped. I may have to keep this bad boy for myself!

Jacket arrived today. I'm impressed. Excellent quality leather. Great stitching. Heavy duty zippers. Full liner. Great deal at the price I got for $300 or even from newenough for $400. Can't wait to go riding!!
