Thinking of purchasing this jacket.

Hi, I am a fairly new biker. Been riding on the road since June (Pillion and Off road riding since I was 13 ish back in 2003!). I've had the same 'rocker' style leather jacket since I was 14, it has served me well, but it's a little short these days not good in the cold and wet.

I saw this on ebay:
it fits right into my Budget really (currently unemployed on Job Seekers post graduating) and I was wondering if anybody has, recognises or has any opinions on the jacket, obviously It wont be top notch, the price tells you that, but for piddling around the countryside and around town (Northampton area) on my Honda 125, would his jacket do? the description seems to be fairly promising, especially the armour parts. Thank you very much for any responses, and a special thanks to the Northampton/Wellingborough Riders who have been absolutely excellent in giving me room, nodding at me and even signalling to me to follow them when filtering so I can learn from some experienced riders, its been great to know that amongst the great Caged enemy I have some allies willing to guide me through.

Have a look at the Akito Python jacket (via ebay). I have used one for approx 13 years with no problems.
