Vests are worn for lots of different reasons. Some folks use them for their
pins and patchwork and wear them over their protective gear. Others wear them
instead of protective gear just to keep their t-shirt from lifting up their back
or getting all stretched out on the highway. Whatever the reason, vests have
always been popular among cruiser and sportbike riders alike. The bullet proof
vest is a newer look on the block and its style and versatility are taking over
the streets.Choosing a bullet proof vest size is very easy because of the nearly
infinite adjustability in the belly area.
Detour vests are sized
to be worn over armored jackets. So, if you are planning on wearing protective
gear under your vest, just order the same size vest as you would a t-shirt. If
you're planning on wearing your vest over just a t-shirt or a hoody, be sure to
order a size smaller.
This 8201 vest we have here is genuine brown buffalo leather with antiqued brass
hardware. The zipper is all metal and has a leather pull tab for easy operation
when wearing gloves.
This vest has no less than ten points of adjustment. The shoulders have nearly
four inches of hook and loop adjustability. Each strap across the belly has
nearly ten inches of usable hook and loop surface for attachment. The rearward
end of the strap is also attached using a hook and loop system for fine
adjustment and removability. The strap itself is even made of a stretchy
material for added versatility. If you can't make this thing fit, I don't know
what to tell ya. If you take a look at the back of the 8201 you can see that
they kept the surface completely seamless. This is a super clean surface for
riding club rockers and other patchwork. Many vests in this pricepoint will have
raw leather on the interior. The interior of the 8201 has a polyester liner.
Liners are important on leather vests. If you use a vest for your club colors,
you will obviously be wearing it regardless of the climate. It doesn't matter if
it's hot, cold, rainy, snowy, volcanoee, or alien invasionee,...you're wearing
it. A liner will make sure the vest doesn't stick to you and restrict your
mobility or make you uncomfortable. incorporated into the liner are two
zippered, oversized pockets; one on each side. These are large enough for a
wallet, cell phone, and keys on one side, and a sub compact pistol on the other.
With the vest zipped up, you can barely tell that there are any items in these
