My riding friends all want to get one, too. Readily adjustable for fit, zipper works fine, fits snug around my torso and doesn't pooch-out in front of my belly like my leather jacket does. I have a bit of a gut on me, but it virtually disappears when I wear this vest. I've variously heard my vest characterized as 'bad-***' and that I'm rocking a 'nice drip'. I usually wear it on my work commutes over top of a button-down dress shirt. Mine's black - but when (if?) the brown ones come back, I'll get one of those, too.
So happy to finally have received this amazing vest. The wait was long but worth it. It is a perfect fit. I love it.
I only got to try it because it's winter so i can't ride but I'm really impressed with the quality and overall construction of this vest and also the fitment. I first bought the true grit shirt which I very impressed with I felt like the vest would be a great addition i couldn't be happier thank you SS
I love this vest. Great fit and look to it. The carry holster is not my thing but i just took it off easily. Only complaint is the zipper is horrible. I dont know if i just got a one off but i could not zip it up. Only zipped up once without a problem. After that it took me like 5 minutes or more to get it zipped up. Super annoying when your friends are waiting for you to gear back up after a beer etc..Zipper looks fine, not missing any teeth or out of place. I could not figure it out. Sent it back to be fixed and waiting for it to return. Another pocket for storage would be nice. I order alot of ss gear this is the first problem ive had. Im sure it will return to me without any more problems...
I feel like calling myself Ironman whenever I put this armour on. It looks so badass like a swat cop. I get a ton of compliments and people are always wanting to try it on. It fits great, especially because it's adjustable straps (sides and shoulders) so it's a rain jacket underneath one day, hoodie next then t-shirt. The mesh breaths well underneath in warmer days and keeps me warm on cool days and dry on wet rides. The padding is thick but not bulky or stiff. It doesn't slide around during a ride. The different materials like mesh, leather and kevlar mix well in the areas they're specifically designed for. The strap buckels are strong and stay harnessed in place. The price is great because you'll be hard pressed to find some other vest or chest & back set for this price! Sizing was great as I take an XL and it fit. No need to order up or down. It matches my SS1310 Under the Radar helmet. They package it well with a nice letter, cool stickers and ship fast!
