    So... after being bombarded with ads on facebook and in various other places I ordered one of these:

    The size I wanted (I went conservative and picked 3XL because it is most likely made by small asians) was $27 plus around $15 shipping. If I get what I hope to get for that price... bloody bargain.

    Anyone else ever bought gear from them? there are some cool looking alpinestars gloves and various other accessories at very attractive prices. The reviews for this place are a bit mixed but I thought a small (paypal protected) investment is worth a shot...

    I've read so many dodgy reviews of Wish I blocked them in the end. Like A grade sketchy.
    Hopefully it comes through for you though

    Yes I read both but I thought that through PayPal at least if it went south I had argument for a refund.

    correct but is it real leather or PU LEATHER[plastic]. i bet on the latter at that price.could be expensive gravel rash.

    I placed an order for some cheap crap on Wish on Feb.25. Today is March 13 and according to their tracking, my order is still in China! I'll give it another week before I cancel.Good thing for Paypal.

    Well I received it yesterday along with a couple other small items I gambled on so thus far 100% success rate. To @risky 's point yes it is PU plastic and I wouldn't trust it for any protection at all. It's more like a fashion thing, but for the price I'd say it's not a bad buy. Unfortunately the 3XL is more like a L so it's too small... Bugger.

    Suppose I'll have to move it on as a 'motorcycle look' jacket.
