One of the Regulars
Both the same price ( at least, I can currently get both at same price, I’m in England). One is the comp weight leather , the other CXL HH. Not for riding, just casual, everyday wear. Which would you buy and why ?
Model A and that's no contest as far as I am concerned. It is a perfect leather jacket and will always be one of my favorites.
As to why... There is so much to say. Primarily, Model A the first leather jacket Vanson has ever produced so the jacket has been revised and refined to perfection in 40-something years they've been around and that is something that absolutely shows.
The jacket fits beautifully, it is extremely comfortable - You can't believe how much more comfortable The A is compared to the Aero CR is if you haven't tried them on - It's got all the useful features and on top of all that, it's built like a tank.
Seriously, I've owned both several times over and A is a much better jacket. Aero CR looks good but Model A is another level altogether.
If you can get the A with a removable lining, you're set for life.
I have run into similar situations here in the US. People either "know" the company and it's products, or they don't.A few people on here mentioned a difference between older and newer models of this Vanson. Just for reference, the jacket I have access to here in England has been in stock for an unbelievable 5 years !
5 years ago was right around the time Vanson lost the old supplier of comp weight leather, so it's a good bet that it's some of the last of the original stuff.
