The Speed and Strength The Quicke and the Dead Vest is going to come with a CE level one back protector standard, or you're simply looking for a clean leather vest all done up in black where you can add your high school merit badges, patches, anything like that where you want to have that on the overall piece. Now, as far as sizing is concerned, this is going to be an American cut to this.
You want to consider sizing down one size based on Speed and Strength's size chart. I say you want to consider that because perhaps you are going to be wearing this over top of another jacket in which case you're going to want to go ahead and stick with what the size chart says.
Now Speed and Strength is a brand that we know and we love here at RevZilla because they don't just focus on one genre of motorcycling, they're after the sport bike guy, they're going after the cruiser guy, the retro guy, the urban guy. They really want to hit all different genres of motorcycling regardless of who you are and what you ride. Now, with the Quick and the Dead vest around that $200 price point, full cowhide construction, really nicely done, a little bit of light perforation. You can see as we start with the collar and really work our way through this, it's going to have a round neck collar. Plenty of room, again, if you're wearing this over top of an existing jacket. There's nothing here that's going to leave you choked off.
You do have a little bit of light padding at both of your shoulders and then when you come through, you are going to have some asymmetry coming into play. You have a cross slant right breast pocket. There's nothing over on the left-hand side, Speed and Strength logo on a Velcro tab that's going to cover a YKK zipper. As you work your way down on this, again full cowhide construction on the entire body and you are going to have adjusters at the waist.
You do have Velcro adjusters, two different adjusters to really fine tune this down to your waist and again, this comes in handy especially if you are wearing this over another jacket, so you can really fine tune exactly how you want it to fit. Now, starting at the top working our way through, again low-slung collar, very minimal on the branding. Speed and Strength realizes that if you're going after a leather vest, you don't want a lot of their branding on, you're probably going to put a bunch of your own branding on this. Really clean lines working its way down the entire back. A little bit of light perforation working it's way through the leather, just to help with breathability and you do have a full-vault CE one back protector included with this.
You'll also notice as you wrap out the bottom on this, there is going to be just a little bit of a drop seat to it. So, if you are a little bit more of a tuck position, just gives you the extra coverage where your pants end and your jacket begins. Now, one of the features that this vest has that we have not seen from other manufacturers is there is a holster pocket for any kind of fruit you can imagine.
There's also a double-snap closure with this, so you have double the chance of having someone not steal your banana. And you can fine tune it. No matter how big or small your banana is, you can find easy access for getting your banana in and out for those of you out there that like to take fruit with you on your rides.
And if one banana is not enough for you to carry on your ride, you have a holster on the left-hand side to keep another banana with you. And there's also a third holster for quick release, so you can have that banana action whenever you want. There is plenty of room to keep fruit with you on these rides and again, it's really nice because it tailors it no matter how big or small that fruit might be. Now, again, regardless of who you're looking for, or what you're looking at, this is going to be a nice piece and one of the final things to mention with this is that that back protector on the inside is removable and is a full zip out lining. So, if you are sewing patches to the back of this, you can do so with ease and you don't have to sew through the liner on the inside of the vest.
Speed and Strength did a very good job of thinking about who this vest is for and what they'd be wanting to do with it.
