Speed and Strength Off The Chain 2.0 Textile Jacket
Overall ridiculously great jacket for the price.
Was really surprised at the quality of this jacket. I was skeptical because of the price, but went for it anyway. Man am I pleased!
As a concealed carrier the fact that this jacket has a built in holster is amazing. It will holster most mid to full size pistols. It isn't a quick draw holster or anything but with some practice it will do the job.
As for the rest of the jacket. The armor isn't obstructive and hardly noticeable. It pretty much molds to your body like it should.
The hoody that comes with the jacket is nice quality as well, but I live in florida and can't really sport it. I tried for two days for the "cool" factor and then I couldn't take it anymore. It's rainy season and WAY TOO HOT. I can't wait for winter to fully rock it out. I do wish that the hood itself independently zipped into the jacket, like the Dogs Of War jacket.
The naked jacket itself is water resistant so you don't get much airflow even from the vents. (Some arm vents would be great) which is expected from most water resistant things, but I'm used to the heat here and would rather be a little warm then all scratched up on the hot pavement. Anyway can't say enough about how much I love this jacket, and I most certainly love that price tag.

Excellent textile jacket
I own the murdered out version of this jacket and Iove it. I bought it because summer was coming and I needed something lighter than my leather jacket. As long as you're moving, the vents in this jacket will keep you cool.
What I really dig about this jacket is it's not obvious it's a motorcycle jacket. I would feel comfortable wearing this off my bike. It's stylish enough to get away with.

Great textile jacket
This jacket is great. I have worn it consistently in 100 degree heat the past week. Yeah, it gets hot and I sweat a little, but any jacket will do that to you in 100 degrees. The vents do help a lot. I am surprised it doesn't get more hot being a black jacket and all. The protection is great. Be aware that the arms run a little big if you are not wearing the hoody underneath. The elbow pads could slide out of the way and be useless in this situation. I have about a 40-41 inch chest and went with a large. I am 5'8 175 pounds and this is a perfect fit for me with and without the hoody. The concealed carry holster is a complete joke, unless you are carrying a compact or a pistol that is under full size. Even then, it doesn't allow quick access to your firearm. The jacket itself is a great entry level jacket, and the protection more than a lot of other brands offer.

This jacket is very stylish and it even comes with a hoodie... My main issue with this jacket is that I'm very skinny and the jacket arms are HUGE on me.... From past experience, I should have known that about Speed and Strength products... They are always larger than others.

AWESOME Jacket for a cruiser or street bike!
I bought this for my harley street bob and , and it is AWESOME!!!
The quality and fit is outstanding! I got it because it looks like a Harley jacket but at a fraction of the cost!
My favorite part is the removable fleece! Which makes it extremely comfortable in colder climates!
I love it so much I will buy a second one in the gray color!
Last but not least Revzilla shopping was superb!
I live in Germany and got it in less than a week from ordering it!

Great jacket for cold weather
I bought this jacket wanting something that actually kept me warm, was long enough for someone over 6'1" with long arms, and that wouldn't break the bank. This is my 7th motorcycle jacket I've owned.
In sub-40 degree weather, I got by with this jacket and a t-shirt. Before, I was layering a sweatshirt under a cheap leather jacket, and still not as warm. Today it was over 100 degrees out, and I zipped out the liner, opened the vents, and rode as comfortably as I could expect. Better for cold weather than warm, but honestly did just fine. The worn black looks great, though the jacket is a little loose without the liner. I'm tall and thin, about 165 lbs, and got a medium. Without liner, a small may have been a better fit, but I'm glad I got medium because this is more cold weather-wear for me.
Can't say how well it'll hold up in a crash, hope not to find out. I do feel safe riding in it, even if the material feels a little thin.
Would definitely purchase from S&S, and from Revzilla again.
Hard to beat the style and value for the money.
