Phenomenal vest!
As a summary right off the bat, this vest is absolutely amazing!

One of the things I was concerned about when I bought the vest online was whether it had pockets or not, and let me reassure you: "YES! it has 3" (which you'll see in the photos below). There's one on either side of the vest and one left breast pocket. All of which are quite ample in space as I stashed my phone, wallet, some cash, headphones, and smokes in them. And by the way, all pockets have zippers so your stuff doesn't fly off unexpectedly.

Another concern of mine was the perforated leather pattern around the zipper, abdomen, and back of the neck, but that passed through with flying colours! It rained somewhat heavily the first time I was wearing the vest, but when I pulled over, the shirt I had underneath was dry except for the sleeves, of course.

The inner lining of the back of vest can be unzipped so it's perfect for stitching on your patches or club colours straight onto the leather. Also, the KNOX spine protector's pocket is quite handy for any "cool" packs or "camel" hydration packs if you're on a long ride in the heat.

On a final note, I would highly recommend this vest. All my fellow riders were impressed by it because it's unique, useful, and -definitely- badass!

I hope this helps. Keep the rubber on the road!
Cheers!

Great looking vest
When I received vest it was actually thicker than I thought it would be. Feels very solid and and is comfortable compared to riding in a jacket in Las Vegas heat. Very nice looking jacket, I pair it with some icon Stryker elbow pads and I feel just as protected as when wearing my jacket. I'm 6 feet tall and weigh 255 chubby/stocky I bought 2xl and fits great. 2 front pockets are big enough for a wallet, inside pocket fit my Galaxy Note 3 and a big portable battery charger. I definitely recommend this vest.

Great product, great fit, great price
Just got this vest yesterday, and already rode 100 miles in it. Really loving it! I'm 5'8", 165 lbs, 39 inch chest. I ordered a medium [since there is no size chart on Revzilla for this product, I went to the S&S website to see their size chart, which is WAY off.. they recommend a size 40 chest to get an XL, which I would be swimming in]

High quality leather, high quality zippers, and high quality velcro straps for side adjustment. The back protector is VERY good quality, much better than the thin p.o.s that came with my RevIt Airwave- it's very flexible but provides good protection. Does prevent a bit of airflow when it's in place, but thats the price you pay for protection.

Already got a few compliments on the vest, from "Game of Thrones" looking, to "Mad Max" looking, to "Undertaker from WWF" looking.. I'll take what I can get nowadays.

I'd recommend this vest. I have 2 other vests that are more "western" looking- SOA style, with flap pockets, but this is much more modern and urban style. I could wear it over a hoodie while out at a bar and not feel like i'm in riding gear. I'll be wearing this all summer, and even in the fall over my riding jacket.

Minimal branding, only one small rubberized patch on the bottom of the back.. not overly branded like the S&S Hard Knock Life vest. Great to add your own patches to, or keep it plain. Matches my denim black Street Bob very well.

GET IT.

Nice vest for the price.
Looks great. Comfortable. Seems durable. Adjustable. Has hand warmer pockets. The inner pockets aren't large enough to carry with (at least with my smalllest, which is a .45 XD). I ordered a small, seeing as the reviews ran large because I like a tighter fit. I'm 5'10", 160 lbs. Fits well over a hoodie or jacket. The only things I would add to make this vest perfect is breast pockets, horizontal inner pockets, and holster pockets large enough to carry a full-size. Overall, very nice vest though.

Great vest!
Just got delivered to my house today. Looked great. Bought a size XL thinking it should fit fine after I looked at the sizing chart. Tried it on and it was a bit to small. Going to have to go up a size. Other than that great buy.

Although I love my vest the two front pockets aren't big enough to hold my wallet and there is only one internal pocket.

The look and feel of this vest is outstanding. The medium fit perfectly on my shoulders and around my chest but I have a short torso so I opted to get a small instead.

Looking for a summer alternative to my mesh jacket, and the online reviews indicated this was a good pick.
Rhodes P on Jun 20, 2015
My nephew bought his and I tried it on. The fit was great and the quality of the leather was awesome. If you are thinking about getting one, go for it. You will not be disappointed.

Is this the same as their Hard Knock Life but without the chest label?
A S on Apr 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yup, the same except for the text. It's designed so club riders can put patches on it.
Does this vest have a CCW pocket?
A shopper on Jun 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Two small pockets in front (barely hold and IPhone) and one interior pocket that is decent sized. Not as big as a conceal carry pocket though.
Want to make sure it does come with spine protection? Also I am 5'9 270 and will a 3xl fit?
Harrison H on Nov 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hi,
I love the vest. Very durable and yes, there is spine protection. I'm 6'1" and 175 lbs and bought a medium. There are three Velcro adjustable straps on either side and that would allow me to expand it several inches. I would think that you're getting the right size.

Hope this helps,
Ed
I wear a icon overlord type 1 jacket in medium. What size would I wear in this vest?
A shopper on Sep 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Sorry but I do not know the icon Overlord type of vest. I can tell you that this vest runs slightly larger. I went down 1 size and love it. It is very durable and with the cut being slightly longer in back I do not experience any rising up.
Hi I'm curious about sizing... I'm usually a medium. Is there a chest measurement available?

Thanks
A shopper on Feb 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hi,
I don't work for ZLA, but have had mine over a year. I had basically the same issue. It depends on your version of a medium. If you've got a bit of a chest and a thinner waist, stick with the medium and cinch in the sides. However, if you are thinner built top to bottom, you could probably go to a small. There is plenty of room on the sides for adjustment. The top portion is a thicker leather and not as pliable as the sides the more wear you give this vest. One thing I kept in mind here in the northeast, I wanted something I could also wear a hoodie under for cool spring and fall riding days.

Keep in mind, Revzilla has a great return policy if one size doesn't work out.
Good luck
Is the main zipper on the vest metal or plastic?
A shopper on Feb 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It's plastic but strong I gave had my vest for almost a year now and I use it everyday. It still hold strong. Even if I put a hoodie and jacket underneath making it tight. No complaints about this vest.
Is there a difference in length between the sizes?
only chest and waist are listed on the website.
A shopper on Jun 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Well I'm 6'4 with slight beer gut and I got an XL. The front is shorter naturally but the back droops way down to cover your waist line. Works great.
Is it American made?
Thomas A on Aug 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No,this product is made in Pakistan.
