When I did some research on Richa Zone Jacket and Trousers combo I could not find any reviews, hence had to take a leap of faith (or rather the leap of greed - purely based on the bargain basement price of the aforementioned items) and buy blind. I have to say that I am very happy that I did - Richa Zone is an awesome jacket and for the price (I paid just over £100) it is the bargain of the century. The leather is very solid, however movement is not restricted, stiching is good and there's plenty of pockets to store your mobile, wallet and keys. I am yet to use it in bad/cold weather, but so far it feels comfortable in +10C morning temperatures. This isn't a winter jacket however - no underlining provided and I do not think you will be able to fit much in terms of thermal insulation underneath either as it is a very sug fit. Speaking about the fit, I am 44in chest in suit sizes and 33in waist and it fits like a glove (normally jackets baloon around the stomach if they fit around the shoulders/chest on me), in fact it's a litte on the tight side, I could possibly do with a 46in and leave a bit of room for a few base layers, so consider this when you are picking your size. (although you might find that the sleeves are too long in a larger one...). Overall, I would highly recommend this jacket to anyone who wants some leather on a budget, I will write the trousers review one I've had a chance to ride in them.
