Speed and Strength Hard Knock Life Vest
great over a jacket
I have the Rev It Airwave jacket for warm weather riding but miss the reassurance of leather. I bought this vest to have that extra layer of protection. I've crashed with other Speed and Strength leathers and walked away unscathed. I like the adjustment straps, secret pockets, and the Knox protector. I ordered my regular size and it fits over my jacket perfect without restricting any movement. If you order with the idea of wearing the vest without a jacket, the adjustment straps should be okay to fit around the waist and torso, but the chest may be bigger than you'd expect, so make sure you check the size charts and perhaps call customer service (who are all awesome to speak with at Revzilla). Great buy, hopefully won't crash test it, but feel much better about having the vest. Definitely recommend

This product has great features.
I ride with the 2nd Thief Riders of the Hocking Hills. I bought this vest and i have used it all season. It fits good, strong, easy to use zippers, This vest has been very comfortable even on are long rides. This vest will even adjust to fit over my coat on the colder days. Its still just as comfortable over the coat as is is off of it. I would recommend this vest to anyone. If i had to do it over again i would make the same chose. Yes its really that good.
And for Revzilla
There web sight made it easy for me to determined what I wanted. They had Videos, Pics., and Reviews that helped alot. When I fist ordered this vest. I ordered the wrong size. Revzilla exchanged it for the right size. It was Easy and Hassle free. Revzilla got me the right size back to me in no time.

Good looking vest
I needed a vest that didn't make me look like Roy Rodgers. This one fit the bill. It has velcro straps that allow you to adjust the vest to suit any body type. With or without a beer gut.
The spine is protected with a firm pad. The leather is top quality. There's a pocket with a zipper in the back in case you need to keep something there like maybe a small face towel.
Overall, it's a great looking vest. Highly recommended.

I bought this as my first leather vest and I'm very pleased. I bought a 2xl and it fits perfect, the velcro adjusters on the side allows me to fit it as needed. The CE armor is outstanding, and as always fast shipping from Revzilla!

I was looking for a vest that had a distinct look and this one has it. I was not expecting it to be as good as what it was when it arrived. This bad boy is very cool, not only is a very mean looking vest it has adjustable Velcro straps.
I am a larger build and the XL was right on, if you have a large chest and perhaps aren't super fit around the mid section it fits great and is excellent for the ride around town. I summer this would be excellent and with a jumper underneath equally as good in winter.
Only one minus here is the price but after receiving this product the value is definitely there.

small pockets in the front, enough for keys, folding money..
Great vest, lets you feel protected, well made and looks good.
Rode with it on in 90 degree, no problem, with the added back protection, makes it feel confid. you hve it on.
only thing is the arm opening, seems a bit to large of an opening, wind flows in and a bit awarkard looking, but not a big deal.
