Speed and Strength Moto Mercenary Armored Hoody
Depends on what you are used to for sizing I guess, but I.usuly wear a 2X. This I needed a 3X. For big guys wondering, I'm 6'2" and about 275
I like the fact that this hoodie is comfortable and easy to put on. Gear like that is more likely to be worn in my mind, so the fact that it has body armour is a huge bonus, even though it is basic.

Nice style could be a bit more robust
This jacket looks and feels great. the only thing i dont like is the zipper is on the small side. if they changed that i would have no complaints at all.

This is not a bad jacket for price and what it is intended. Several things I do not like. The elbow pads seem a little loose on the arms. I purchase a medium because that is what I normally wear. The inside left arm elbow pocket catches my hand each time I put my arm in the sleeve. The Right pocket zipper is coming apart at the bottom of the pocket. So Stitching could and should be improved in these areas.
Also only has the two jacket pockets. Wish it had a few internal jacket pockets. So I could carry securely my ID, cash and Credit card. I also need a good safe place for cell phone, a separate camera, pocket knife, ect... The two pockets are fine but if the stitch is coming apart not a great place to keep safe. I am forced to use my Tank bag which is ok. But another pocket or two would be nice
I use this when I want to ride on days the temps are in the 70-80 and it works well in keeping cool. Goes great with my Kevlar jeans and I can attach to my belt.

Awesome Hoodie, minor complaint
This is the best hoodie I've ever owned. I wear it in 50 degree weather in the mornings with my Harley vest over it, and leather gloves, and it serves the purpose for my 30+ mile adventure to work. It is so thick, it does block out the wind pretty well, although still breathes so that when I drive home in the afternoon and it's 80+ degrees out, I'm not soaking wet with sweat. Belt loops, although I don't use them, thumb holes, zippered pockets, and removable (Velcro-ed in pockets) CE approved armor in the elbows/forearms, shoulders, and spine are all features of textile, leather, and mesh coats costing hundreds more. It looks BADA$$, and is sized accurately, so that I can still wear it under my heavy unarmored leather in the winter, where I've ridden down to 28 degrees. Colors will vary as I've seen it in stores with bright white lettering, gray lettering, lighter body, darker body, etc. I can see that it will stretch out over time as will all hoodies, but not by much. Nothing a washer and dryer won't reset.
My only issues have been the metal zippers not working smoothly, unless you open/close them properly. For example, my left pocket requires that I push the mechanism in while zippering down (opening it). My main zipper requires that while zippering it up, that I twist it a bit clockwise to get it started going up. The edges of the material surrounding the zippers, as with all jackets, can get caught in the zipper if you're not conscious of it. But hey, they're metal, which I'd rather have over plastic.
Love it. Would buy it again. Have recommended it to the eight to ten people who have already complimented me on it in the week or two that I've worn it.

Perfect casual look for riding with protection
This hoodie runs a bit small compared to a regular hoodie of the same size even without armor. The zippers leave a bit to be desired the pocket ones are fine the main should be about 3 levels more beefy Dig the fit and finish.
The look is great for when you don't want to be all leathered out

Looks awesome...fits small
I ordered this in a 3XL, but the sizing was closer to a 2XL. My friend really liked it, so I sold it to him.
