British company IIRC. Never heard anything negative about them.

I have 2 jackets from them... a leather and a mesh/textile... Luckily, I haven't had to crash test them... with that said, I have no BIG complains, other than the velcro they use on the collar is the weakest stuff ever.... they might have been better using piece of scotch tape!!!! Other than having to "reseal" the collar every now and then during a ride, I've been a happy customer...

My wife and I have mesh Fieldsheer jackets. The pads seem a little bulky compared to other jackets I've seen. Other than that, they're comfortable and breathe well. Order a size larger than you think you need.

I've had the Fieldsheer Air Speed perforated leather jacket for about 6 years now.

The back pad is hard & stiff; a big plus in my opinion, as protection is the name of the game. Very comfortable in it. Yep, velcro on the collar has gotten weak after a few years. Has been a trusted companion though.

Also have a pair of Fieldsheer racing gloves. Had a big lowside @ the track that included a couple of front flips. Broke a wrist, but the gloves have barely a scratch on them!

Fieldsheer is good stuff & you can find some great prices on their goods at: motorcyclecloseouts.com

On the velcro comments, that's why I prefer zipper and/or snaps on collars and wrists even tho' they aren't as adjustable. Velcro is also very irritable after a 500 mile day of it rubbing your neck since it won't stay applied. Unfortunately, my favorite jacket has velcro closures.

My only complaint is the plastic zippers. Other than that, good stuff.

I was wearing a Feildsheer jacket on my lowside... you wouldn't even know I wiped out! The jackets shell is very tear/scuff resistant.

Super cheap Fieldsheer

If anyone is looking for Fieldsheer clothing, and know your size, look here:, www.brocktoncycle.com and look in the closeout section, they have lots of jackets, most around $50. BTW, I've had a Fieldsheer Airspeed ventilated jacket for aver 5 years and have nothing bad to say about it.

Well, I just noticed today that my Fieldsheer mesh pants are coming apart at the waistband. They're about two years old, with maybe 8 months per year daily commuting use, no falls.

You might also check Newenough.com or Motorcyclecloseouts.com. Sometimes they have really good closeout deals.

My Fieldsheer race gloves finally gave up the ghost after 7 years on abuse from sweat, intense sunlight, rain, a crash and my newfound penchant for dragging a finger on the pavement in turns on occaision.

I'm getting Cortech Adrenalines from kneedraggers.com to replace them on recommendation from Hotbrakes & because I'm an unfaithful **** when it comes to gear. But I would have no problem getting Fieldsheers again. Great stuff.

TIP: replace your velcro with a snap.

My new Teknic jacket had some very weak velcro on the collar. Got out the seam ripper from my wife's sewing chest & removed the velcro.

Then just figured out where I wanted the snap. Punched a hole and installed the snap. Took about 10 minutes. Get a kit at Wal-mart or a sewing store.

The snap is miles better. Heck, might even try this on my old Alpinestars boots with the dying velcro.
