Quality, well-appointed 2in1
The Gearhead is something a little different in the market - there's a few armored hoodies popping up here and there (S&S, Fly and now Rev'it) plus waxed cotton jackets (RS Kent for example) but not a combination of the two. The Gearhead takes the features of both and offers very good value for money to boot.

I was initially fishing around for an armored hoody for the hotter months - something I could just throw on and give me some one-and-done protection. I was also interested in the Kent, due to it's lighter weight and style. For a little more than an average armored hoody, the Gearhead gives you the hoody, the waxed jacket, CE elbow and shoulder protection, and the ability to swap between the two. After ringing up Highway 21 directly to get more info, I was advised for my 5'7, 185lb, 42" chest, wide shouldered frame I should get the large, which fits as it should.

Starting with the Hoody, it's very basic in it's styling. YKK zip, good relaxed feel, two hand warmer pockets, thumb cuffs, and a small logo on the seam at the bottom. No garish graphics, just a plain ol' hoody. The good thing about it are the internal pockets that can fit elbows, shoulders and back armor. I've fitted a Fly CE back protector to it and it doesn't bulk up at all.

On the jacket, the finish and materials feels quality and the look is reminiscent of Carthartt. The cotton adds water-resistance (but not waterproof) and it has a mesh inner for some breathability. It features various pockets including a pen pocket on the upper arm and adjustability on the cuffs and sides. And it comes already equipped with CE rated elbow and shoulder armor.

The one thing I wasn't sure about was the normal collar on the jacket, and how it would look with the hoody. Initially I thought it would have been better with a more mandarin-type collar, but after wearing it a few times I think they made the right move, adding to the versatility off the bike. Obviously, without the hoody the jacket fits ever so slightly larger, and though it could be a tiny bit more fitted, it's not obviously oversized.

Together, the jacket and hoody match well. There's no sleeve ties to keep the hoody in place, but it's easy to get in and out of, and the hoody's arm doesn't bunch up when you're retracting your arm. The combination is pretty warm, making it better suited for spring and fall in the city. Lack of perforations and vents don't make this the most breathable bit of kit, but when you wear the jacket or hoody loose you get a fair bit of airflow.

If I had to improve on the Gearhead, it would mainly be aesthetic. The jacket collar doesn't have any support, so folds easily. I would have loved to have seen a bit of leather underneath to stiffen it up. And maybe some reflective trim around the collar edge for additional safety. Leather patches on the elbows would have given it a more vintage look whilst reinforcing the impact zone, and I would have preferred elasticated waist adjustment rather than buttons, which bunch the jacket slightly. I got the all black, however I think a few more hoody colors would have helped. As I mentioned, a more svelte cut around the sides would have given the jacket some shape, but I can understand the more American sizing they went with. And stealing a feature from Rev'it, a button on the upper back of the jacket to secure the hoody would have been a nice touch.

None of the above detract from the Gearhead - it's a very functional 2in1 that has multiple uses, be it a spring/fall long haul, or separately around town. At it's current price point, you're basically getting 2 basic motorcycling pieces with added value, which makes it a very good buy in my book.

Awesome yet simple jacket!
I bought this jacket a month ago and have been using it every day since! The quality of the jacket and hoodie is better than I expected, no signs of poor craftsmanship.

I am a bigger guy (6'6" and 340lbs) and I ordered the 4xl. With the hoodie installed its a bit snug, although I got a bit of a stomach. Without the hoodie it fits well and has enough slack to help keep cool.

Amazing Setup
Solid Jacket. The 2-in-1 feature is really what sells it. The hoodie itself has the option to takeout the armor and place it in the hoodie itself and wear that alone. Caught in some rain today where my jeans were soaked but the jacket held up where the hoodie underneath was only slightly damp but my t-shirt under was completely dry. The collar does seem to hang a little low and I could see water getting inbetween the collar and helmet, so maybe some sort of neck buff could be a good idea for rain. Will update when I get caught in a hard downpour though.

The armor seems good, but it definitely doesn't feel or seem like the best. But, for the price I cannot complain. The collar seems to maybe be ironed as it seems a little wimpy and wrinkled.

My only real grip is the zipper pocket on the inside is a little low, I don't mind unzipping the hoodie to get to it, but with gloves on you have to unzip the jacket and hoodie pretty low to get to the zipped inside pocket. Wish it was maybe a half inch or inch higher up.

Really rad jacket that feels and looks good. Highly recommend.

Wearing this on a tour from the PNW to Austin, TX and back. Started out in the bitter cold of the Washington and Oregon coasts around New Years and it was damn cold. Put a puffy and a shell over it and it was fine. Since passing through Joshua Tree, all of southern Arizona, New Mexico, into Austin, then back into New Mexico at this point, it's been a really great jacket. Pads sit exactly where they should and are barely noticeable during riding or if I'm out walking around. Color has faded significantly after wearing in direct sunlight for months on end, but it looks worn, not cheap. Back protection is very minimal, but better than nothing. I took the hoodie out and just wear my regular thinner cut hoodie of about the same weight underneath the jacket. After a few weeks of continued wear the hoodie that zips in stopped fitting very well so I gave it to a bum in Tucson. He was stoked so it's a win win for everyone.

Bottom line - I'm 6'3", 42"-43" chest and weigh around 190 after dropping about 10 lbs on the road. The jacket has fit flawlessly throughout and I will continue to wear it with and without a hoodie until it falls to pieces. Great value for the $.

Wanted lighter summer gear - this is ideal in that it's a 2in1, and the armor can be put in both the hoody and jacket.
