Scorpion Eternity Leather Jacket Review

An extremely high value-to-dollar ratio from Scorpion, the brand new Scorpion Eternity Leather Jacket is an excellent jacket for spirited street and aggressive sport riding. A full perforation scheme down the front and back of this jacket will keep you nice and cool in the heat of summer and ample protective elements will keep you safe in the most demanding of rides. Available in a muted style for the rider seeking subtly and also in a wild graphical version, the Scorpion Eternity Phantom Leather Jacket is a great choice for the sport rider for Spring 2011.

Check out our Scorpion Eternity Leather Jacket Review:



A premium 1.2-1.4mm top grain leather construction with CE rated SaS-Tec molecular level armor in the shoulders and elbows, the Eternity will keep you extremely protected on the road. SaS-Tec is a futuristic material that is soft and flexible against the body but upon impact becomes rigid and disperses the impact energy evenly across the armor piece; it's arguably one of the best armors available on the market. Topping this armor are co-injected aluminum sliders at both the shoulder and elbow which provide exceptional abrasion resistance and help to prevent tumbling in the unfortunate event of a crash. Lastly, the PE foam back pad is upgradeable to CE rated protection (Knox TP2 CE Back Protector).

For comfort, there are Kevlar stretch panels on the inner sleeves that allow both expansion and ventilation to pass through to the body, adding to the large perf scheme. Added mobility comes from accordion stretch leather panels at the backs of the elbows and shoulders for uncompromised movement in and out of the tucked position. The jacket has an Airguard windproof liner in addition to the removable EverHeat full-sleeved thermal liner to stretch into the colder temperatures. A nice feature of the liner is the knitted cuffs that act like a sweatshirt cuff, providing a snug fit against the wrist and acting as a wind block. Lastly, adjustability at the waist for a snug fit and a fleece-lined dongle that sits against the neck are nice creature comforts.

The Scorpion Eternity Leather Jacket is going to be a hit amongst the sportbike crowd in 2011. With a loaded features and function set, this jacket easily goes head-to-head against any of its similarly-priced competitors. See other options by visiting our Leather Motorcycle Jackets page.
