Speed and Strength Women's Killer Queen Armored Hoody
Sizing Chart is Iffy...
...but I am really glad I purchased this product through Revzilla!
They sent it to me directly through Speed & Strength and I received it freaky fast. This jacket is amazing.
I am 5'2" with a 42" chest (measured around fullest part of breasts), but 36" bandwidth (measured right below breast) so I thought I needed to order the XL which was sold out and took a chance on a Medium. It is a perfect fit even with the shoulder, elbow, and spine protectors in place. See photos.
Note: I don't recommend making a habit out of removing and placing the protectors back in because the stitching on some places failed, but not enough to damage the integrity of the protectors to shift around or fall out of place. The inner logo lining at the collar where the hood meets the jacket was a bit scratchy against the back of my neck at first, but it's not worth returning just for that.
It's comfortable, and looks good to wear off your bike. I am still 100% satisfied with this purchase, and look forward to future products from Speed & Strength through Revzilla.com.

Great hoodie with good protection-for the price I am very impressed. Took a spill on the bike and held up really good! Elbow protection saved me and it didn't even rip the fabric!
Look good on and off the bike!

I truly have enjoyed my riding jacket since my purchase!

I flipped my bike four times and slid about 100 feet. I of course had tho jacket on, not a sign on the jacket that I even wrecked! Had I left all the armor in it I beleive that my fore arm would not have had road rash because no other part of my body that was covered by the jacket even looked touched. I love it!

Absolutely love this jacket!
Please read this if you are thinking about ordering! I normally wear a large so that is what I first ordered, WAY TO SMALL! I had to return and get a 2XL, which fits perfectly! Oh man I love this jacket, it looks great on and I still feel protected. I ride a Ducati so a lot of the time jackets come up my back but this one stays still, which is a huge plus in my book. It keeps me warm in the mornings and cool in the afternoon. It's perfect if you order two sizes bigger than normal! Enjoy!

Love this hoodie!
after oogling this jacket for months, I finally purchased it when it began to constantly be hot (here in Florida) so I could test it right away. I rode for about 2-2.5 hours today and noticed a lot. I'm 5'2" ish and 112 pounds, with a 32 inch chest. I have another S&S jacket, which I fit a small great. however its textile, and I sweat buckets in it. I wanted a lighter jacket, but with armor. the med was out of this and I know a large would be too big, so I went with the small. it is very snug fitting. I have very broad shoulders, and the sleeves are a bit too short for my taste. with regular use, its doable, tho a bit short, and with my thumbs in the monkey paws, it pulls very painfully on the area between thumb and finger.
there is a snug inner liner, and the outer sweatshirt fabric is a bit looser. however, very snug around torso, with extra fabric on back area. a bit odd, but I think its the princess seams, on my not princess body. also, im short, this jacket just barely covers to top of pants and rides up, in a tuck position. beware tall people. the hood is also tight fit. I noticed that with the tight fit, it is hard to bend the elbows, and after a day of riding, my right elbow is rubbed raw from the friction of the armor and bending my arm. Ill use a bandaid next time.
there are great pads, and they dont slip around in their spots like my other jacket. and I appreciate the back pad as well. the graphics are great, and I love the quality of the material. you can fit smaller smart phone inside, and a small wallet and keys in your pockets and thats it. I was a bit warm at stop lights but nice and cool riding. In the end, I love this jacket and only wish I could have tried a medium. however, i will be keeping it and using it very frequently.

I ordered this armored hoody a couple months ago and I was a little skeptical at first because I was worried it wouldn't give enough protection. When it arrived, I was happy to see that it has removable pads for both the arms and back. The hoody was a lot cuter in person too! I was worried it may look faded or not as bright with the colors but I LOVE this hoody!! I even take the pads out and wear it as a normal hoody. It does run a little small though because it's not stretchy at all. Def recommend this product!! Speed and Strength needs to come out with more women's clothing and gear!!
