Speed and Strength Tough as Nails Leather Vest
Just as advertised
Fit my patches great. Looks great; lots of compliments. Needs more pockets and possibly a gun holster pocket.

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.

Excellent Style and Performance
I am a daily rider, with motorcycle as my only form of transportation, and I live in Myrtle Beach, so it can get pretty hot down here. Purchased this vest about a month ago, and I love it. It breathes very well, and the style of the vest is great. I have people asking where I got it everywhere I go. My only complaint would be the two exterior pockets are very small. I can only fit my keys, and maybe a lighter in them, but the interior pocket is much larger, can fit all I need in there. Other than the small exterior pockets, this is a fantastic vest

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

Best vest ever
Great vest. Has a mad max look to it. Very heavy leather with lots of adjustable tabs.

Good for newbies
It was my first vest and it was exactly what I was looking for. It could not be the only one in your wardrobe but it is definitely value for money.

excellent choice for the money
This is a great vest, and above average quality leather and craftsmanship. The airflow is less than some other lightweight leathers but that's because of the thicker leather.
The Spine protection for what it's worth on a vest is cool; hopefully we'll never need to test it. If I had to change anything, it would be another pocket as the front pockets are small and you only have 1 inside pocket. Also, I would make it a little less tapered, especially given it has lockdown adjustments on the sides. It is a little snug around the waist but banking on a little give and stretch with the wear.

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.
