I'm trying to decide which jacket to get. It's between the A* TZ-1 and the A* 7-2. I see a few of you own the TZ-1 and like it but does anyone have any experience with the 7-2? Whether you own it or have tried it on. None of the motorcycle shops near me stock A* gear so I can't try it out for myself before I order it. Thanx...

Special Features:

1.2-1.4mm full-grain leather for excellent abrasion resistance. // Pre-curved sleeves for a perfect fit in the riding position. // Removable quilted vest. // Connection zipper allows attachment to selected Alpinestars leather pants. // 75° anatomically designed raglan construction. // CE certified protectors. // Multiple stitched main-seam construction for maximum tear resistance. // Back protector compartment with a foam back pad (CE certified RC back protector available as accessory).

I have the TZ-1 and its a good jacket although I dont like the fabric on the inner arm-lets too much cold air in when its cold out, but not enough when its hot out.

based on the specs above it would appear the TZ-1 is the better jacket. the 7-2 doesnt mention a zipper for pants though. that would be an issue if you ever plan to go to the track (you'd have to buy the pants too).

I used to have the TZ-1, I agree with the jacket not letting in enough air on a hot day. the 7-2 looks like it has no ventilation. if thats not a problem and you aren't planning on zipping pants to the jacket I'd go with the 7-2 for its style. As far as fit, i had a size 42 which was way too big on me. I wear a size 38 stage jacket and I'm 145lbs, 5'7. I'm sure the sizes are identical on these 2 jackets.

I don't think you'll find many people with the 7-2 considering it just came out.
