Popped into the local HD dealers today, it is only 1km from where I work, to see if they stocked Morris engine oil (suitable for roller bearing crankshsfts). Whilst I was there I was looking at a Furygan kangaroo skin leather jacket, Seattle. It looked good and fitted very well with a great feel to it, with elbow and shoulder protection fitted and provision for a back protector. I believe that they are a French company. Does anybody have any views or experience of this brand of clothing.

Any veiws appreciatted.

Scrumpy

Fyrygan is a old manufacturer from South France

At the begining, the creator was Segura Familly. But after a familly desagreement, one of the brother created Furygan. Segura still existe, as Fyrygan

Furygan has made its reputation as a manufacturer of leather suits for pilots in mid 70's and 80's

You'll found bellow some explanation -  in French -

Blousons de moto en cuir - Fabricant Furygan
Avec plus de 30 ans d'expérience, le fabricant Furygan s'est établi dans la production de blousons de moto en cuir et autres équipements pour motocycliste. Développé grâce à la recherche, les tests et les preuves au sein du monde très exigeant de la compétition de moto. Le fondateur de Furygan est Jacques Segura et est connu pour avoir une des histoires les plus intéressantes d'Europe. La famille Segura a été dans la fabrication de vêtements et en 1969, la famille a ouvert une division qui a été axée sur les sports automobiles. Le frère de Jacques Segura a été mis responsable de cette nouvelle division et certains disent que Jacques s'est offusqué de cette décision et cela a créé un conflit familial très mouvementé. C'est alors qu'il a lancé l'entreprise Furygan.

Il a commencé par la fabrication de gants et avec sa fureur en lui, a nommé l'entreprise Furygan, mais sans la lettre T à la fin. Le logo de la panthère est le symbole de l'unité des parachutistes durant la Seconde Guerre mondiale et Jacques a choisi un blessé pour exprimer ce qu'il pensait de ses rapports familiaux. Il fabriquait des gants de haut de gamme en cuir et ensuite a progressé rapidement au milieu des années 70 avec l'ajout de combinaisons en cuir pour les coureurs de classe mondiale qu'il a parrainés en grand nombre. Steve Baker est devenu en 1977, le premier américain à remporter un championnat du monde et il portait des vêtements en cuir Furygan.

Xav,
Many thanks for making the effort to post. Last night I found a few reviews on the internet all of which where very positive. I went back to the shop today and tried the jacket with my other kit on. It fitted really well and felt good so I bought it.

Thanks again for your post.

Cheers Jack

Hi Scrumpy, Furygan means something for any old french rider as everyone wanted one in the 70s! Not only because it was a good jacket manufacturer but also because the jackets had a yellow tiger on the back! I had to wait for months to get one as it was expensive (I was 17) and owned it for about only 2 kilometers, before I crashed the bike and destroyed the jacket onto the ground!

JLO - I hope that the jacket provided you with good protection. The one I have choosen is plain black, I am not a fan of the multi-coloured leathers that are available. Black is coming back into fashion unless that was just salesman talk trying to clear his old stock. The tiger is also black and understated (very small). This is the first leather jacket that I have bought, I have been using my dad's old one for a few years now. Prior to that it was waxed cotten Blestaff's and army surpus clothing.

Xav has kindly offered to post a photo for me.

I will be supporting the French economy even further in August when I drink all of the cider in St Caste de Gido.

Cheers Scrumpy

I've receive the picture of the Kangaroo jacket of Scrumpy




Nice isn't it ?  (Scrumpy, I think that now you have interest to take Furygan shares. I think that when our buddies will see your Kangaroo jacket, they will rush to their local dealer, and the turnover of this brand will rise. Me it's done ...  Smile )


Well, now to illustrate a comparison between Furygan and Segura at the time, an old photo of Jack Findley and Chaz Mortimer at the Grand Prix de France au Castellet, 22 avril 1973   ( extrait du site pit-lane.biz http://www.pit-lane.biz/t3330-oldies-grand-prix-de-france-au-castellet-22-a… )





You see that the color is nice too ...


Have a good time Chaz Scrumpymer  Very Happy

Just to join in ... at the end!

Yeh, good stuff Furygan, Scrumpy.  Don't think you'll be disappointed.  The best gloves I ever had were Furygan kangaroo skin - light and tough.  And their factory is just down the road from me, at Nîmes - so thanks for supporting the local economy!
