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 pockets.
My XXL vest fits me. I'm 240LBS. 5feet 10 inches tall.
It also fits my girl who is 120LBS.
These vests really are very adjustable.
