The Speed and Strength Cruise Missile jacket has a water resistant AR-600
Poly chassis with perforated leather panels across the chest, upper arms, and
across the back. This is going to be a two season jacket much like the Off The
Chain 2.0. Its lightweight construction isn’t quite heavy enough for cold winter
weather, and it doesn’t flow quite enough air for a hot, sunny summer day. This
jacket is going to bring the most comfort in the spring and the fall for sure.
It’s available in two colorways; this black cream and orange version, and
version SS calls vintage black that looks a lot like denim with a patina to it.
It’s available in sizes small to three x, and the jacket has a very full cut.
The arms are only slightly precurved, and the chest and belly offer plenty of
room for all sorts of body types. This jacket can definitely be worn on any
style bike you wish, but it’s probably going to be happiest on a naked bike,
cruiser, or a vintage café racer or bobber.
This Cruise Missile jacket has a fairly basic construction and a clean look. The
only pockets on the exterior are the zippered hand warmer pockets, so the jacket
is uncluttered looking. The roominess and adjustability make this a very
comfortable jacket to wear. The accordion style stretch panels on the fronts of
the shoulders and the expansion panels on the back make this jacket excellent
for bobbers and other cruisers with extended reaches. The low profile,
microfiber lined, mandarin style collar helps with this as well. The jacket
doesn’t press against your windpipe if your hand position is above your
shoulders, like the collars of some jackets do. You also have adjustability at
the waist in the form of these hook and loop adjusters. The last bit of
adjustability is at the cuffs, with hook and loop closures and microfiber
gussets and linings.
Protection is delivered in the form of CE rated Vault armor in the shoulders,
elbows, and back, and there is a stripe of reflective piping across the
shoulders on the back. There are also snap type belt attachments in the back of
the jacket to provide a little extra protection for the skin on your lower back.
This can also be a handy feature depending on your riding position, for keeping
the jacket from riding up.
Breathability is achieved through the use of a combination of laser perforated
leather panels and vents located on the biceps and down the sides of the back.
On cooler mornings and evenings, you can install the zip out quilted thermal
liner. While we’re inside the jacket, you can see the hidden zippered pocket
with pistol restraint for you properly licensed concealed carriers.
All in all, the
Speed and Strength Cruise Missile textile and leather hybrid
motorcycle riding jacket
is a great choice for the rider looking for an ultra-lightweight armor carrier
for the milder weather.
