If you are an avid biker or Harley enthusiast, you have probably heard of the popular brand Fox Creek Leather. The now enormous company had humble origins as a side business for company owner Paul Trachy. After serving the army, soul searching, and riding bikes for years, Trachy settled down in the beautiful town of Fox Creek, Virginia. There he realized that he needed some extra money to support his family beyond his low paying job’s wage. The leather gear produced by Trachy and his family was originally sold at biker gatherings, drag races, and other slightly ominous events. Since then, the company has grown rapidly and now is a prominent figure in biker gear mainly sold online. Although it is possible to purchase the gear from on-site in Virginia, they have stayed true to their origins of producing great equipment from their at home facility. Still, Trachy warns, it is far from a retail shop and large snakes frequent the premise.
Fox Creek Leather is a producer of both men's and women's leather jackets that are great for cruising around in style. Most of their jackets are made from high quality naked leather that ranges from 1.4-1.6mm in thickness. Styles include the great Classic Motorcycle Jacket that comes in two versions and is great for the Harley enthusiast. In addition, they have crafted jackets that are perfect for racing around on a Ducatti, Suzuki, or Honda, just check out the Vented Reflector Motorcycle Jacket or the Grayson Motorcycle Jacket. Also, the company is currently featuring summer jackets on sale. The summer jackets are great because they won’t make you sweat while cruising down the highway under a hot sun.
The selection of riding gloves found at Fox Creek Leather is great too. You will find both open finger and traditional gloves, in black or brown, and made from either deer skin or elk skin. In addition, you can narrow down your selection to gloves lined with fleece, or straight leather; both will make riding in any season more comfortable. Currently, many fleece-lined gloves are on sale.
