It's easy for us to tell you how great our products are - but of course, you expect that. What really matters is
what you think. Following are letters from some of our customers and Product Reviews from industry
professionals. Read why so many motorsport enthusiasts come to Z Custom Leathers for the absolute best in Custom Leather Apparel.
While I was cataloging some photos I stumbled across some pictures taken at Track days at Thunderhill. It started
me thinking about just how good my Z Custom suit is. The first photo was taken after I’d crashed on turn 5. The suit worked very
well in helping to keep me from being very seriously injured. The photo is of the suit, dirty with mud on the elbow and back, on my
The second photo is of me on my bike and back in my Z back at thunder hill just two months later after my dislocated
shoulder had healed up. The Z still looks as good as the day I bought even after it saved my skin during the crash.
Thanks again for a great racing suit!
The Z Custom suit, like most of the top-shelf leathers coming from today's established makers, is both highly protective (even more
so than the bulletproof Vanson suit it replaces) and superbly detailed, offering such features as venting, stretch sections in key areas
for ease of movement, improved armor, a built-in back protector, etc. [read full article]
I recently crashed in my Z's during a race at Willow Springs. I was doing probably just over 100mph when I fell off. When I came off,
the first thing to touch the ground was my shoulder, and from then on, I tumbled, and slid, seemingly forever. The only injury that
I have is from that first impact with the ground; a separated shoulder. I don't even have so much as a mark on me. Some of my friends
that have crashed in "the other guys" suits have received abrasions from inside of the suit as it doesn't exactly fit right.
I have none of these wounds, as my suit fits me perfectly. Minutes after the crash, I had a friend drop the suit off in Adolph's hands
"Thank you guys for the best fitting suits, the
best service, and the
best crash protection anyone could ask for!"

I got my jacket & gloves this morning and I'm
very impressed. The quality of leather, fit + finish, etc. Is excellent!
It fits me perfect. I wanted to thank you for sending it next day air
and for being so pleasant to do business with.

I would like to thank all the folks at Z for your
outstanding help with my Z Custom Leathers road racing suit. When I sent
my leathers to your company to be repaired and cleaned, they were in "bad"
shape (understatement). I had the worst weekend of my racing career at
the WERA Grand National Finals held at Road Atlanta. I had three get-offs
in one weekend. Not only did the leathers hold up every time, but the
gloves did as well. However, those falls were not without consequence.
As we all know, the pavement does enough to dirty leathers, but how about
three soil samples from that red Georgia clay? What a mess.
When I received my leathers in Phoenix for the opening
round of the AMA "Professional" Superbike Series, I could not
believe my eyes. These leathers looked like they had just come off the
rack. They were pleasing to the eye for the first time since my crash
in 1995! For those folks who had raced with me for two years, they could
not believe it either. I wanted to send this letter as an extension of
my most sincere THANK YOU, because Z is unparalleled in an industry that
lacks so many quality manufacturers!
See ya' at the races!

The jacket fits very well. Thank you! I am very
pleased. Thank you Adolph for a great tailor job. Also, say thanks to
the rest of your staff. Thank you for your cooperation and patience. I
will be very careful. : )
I wish you all the best,
P.S. My mother doesn't like the idea that I have a bike - but she does like the jacket!
I received my leathers and I wanted to let you folks know just how satisfied
I am with them. I learned a lot about Z Custom from my younger brother
who has been wearing your leathers this riding season. He researched almost
every company out there and concluded that Z Custom was the best buy when
price and quality are equally important. I could not agree more with his
assessment of Z Custom Leathers.
My leathers fit perfect and are super comfortable on
the bike. I have a Honda VFR and the leathers are perfect for the sportbike
style of riding. I do believe that they will also be comfortable for the
long-haul of touring riding that I do 4 or 5 times a season. In 25 years
of riding on the street and roadracing (15 years ago ), I have owned many
sets of leathers from roadracing one-pieces to separate jackets and pants.
I wish I had known about Z Custom before because I spent a ton of cash
on leathers of far less quality and fit than this set from you. I very
rarely write letters to companies because they often promise more than
they can produce. Z Custom Leathers produced a super set of leathers in
exactly the time frame promised in exactly the fit I wanted. So, I had
to write you this letter to thank you for your superior service.
Once again, thanks for doing exactly what you advertise.
