I worried about visibility, especially early in the riding season. This is a great hi-viz vest. I have used the mesh variety in the past. This one fits well, doesn't billow, and does what it is designed to do. I am ordering one in green...I want both colors. Since I bought mine, the Shop has sold several more.
I'm a fussy guy and i'm careful with my purchases. I special ordered these boots to replace a pair of H-D Swat style boots I've been wearing for years. These boots had the sole I was looking for (i don't need big lugs on my riding boots), a side zipper, lacings, and they look good. The reflective piping around the toe and heel add a dash of flash. They are comfy, and I've been wearing them for about a month...daily. When you put your feet down, they stay in place. That's great. Where they fall down is in the lacing. The top two lugs are open, which means the boots won't stay tied so you can slip in and out of them using the zippers. If they were some "closed type" of eyelet , like the swat boots I enjoyed, I would rate them higher. Also, the toe box is such that you will not get full use of a footboard as they don't fit under the brake pedal...that is, if you use a footboard. I didn't expect to have to tie my boots each time I put them on. Beyond that, they are a fine boot and worth the price.
It's time to shift gears from sleeveless weather to the season of layers. Which is why we designed the Hex Head Leather Bomber Jacket with a removable liner. Keep it in for added insulation, or remove it if you can handle the forecast. Before you pore over the list of features on this men's leather motorcycle jacket, zoom in on the back. It's one of our finest embroidery and leather appliqus.
Almost perfect. Fits well, leather is as advertised and looks good. Doesn't need a break-in period. Nothing buy necessities for pockets. I live light and travel light and I don't care for "extras" someone else thinks I need. This jacket is great. No tab at the collar to bother me. Zippers work well and the snaps at the wrists keep out the wind in cooler and cold weather. It's a riding jacket that looks good on or off the bike.
One think to notice when trying it on...the armholes are "european". That is, they are small and tight and if you have beefy arms, this jacket may not be a perfect fit for you.
When this jacket came out of the box, the Motorclothes folks at my Shop all said "this is an Uncle Lenny Jacket". They know my preferences and they were right on. It is true to size. I have all medium size jackets, casual and leather, and this medium was a perfect fir (armholes aside).
The morning after getting this jacket, I rode 130 miles in temps from 30 - 45 degree (F) without a problem. It kept me warm at 5,000 ft. elevation. I wore it under my leather jacket. Not only is it functional under a jacket, it looks good and feels good as a jacket on its own. I am 5'8", 180 lbs. and have a bit of a muffin top…and a Medium works great for me. Minimal pockets aren't an issue. Hand warmer and one on the left outside (no inside pockets). No bulk. This is like the outdoor gear I sometimes buy and use for riding. I'm glad MotorClothes is getting into the groove. It's windproof, and can get warm in warmer weather. An excellent jacket and worth the price. You won't be sorry.
