The Dogs of War line from
Strength pays homage to the working canines of the U.S. Armed Forces. The
collection consists of an SS 700 helmet, this jacket, and mens and womens casual
apparel. A part of the proceeds from every item sold are donated to the Warrior
Dog Foundation, a charity that works to transition these animals from active
duty to their final handlers, including civilian placement. I appreciate my
motorcycles almost as much as I appreciate my dog, so I really enjoyed
researching Mike Ritland’s project. For more information, go to
warriordogfoundation.org and check
out Mike’s interview on “60
Minutes”. It will give you a whole new respect for our nation’s fearless
four legged warriors.
Let’s get a closer look at this jacket. The chassis is made of an enzyme washed
cotton and polyester blend, and is available in black and olive. This is a
really cool fabric for a motorcycle jacket because it lays on your body like
broken in denim, making i look like regular clothing. But, the poly toughens it
up a bit, and will help it better stand up to sunlight. The twin breast pockets,
double stitched seams, and the reinforced areas in the shoulders and elbows give
this jacket the look of army fatigues.
Features include a zip off hood and main closure that both feature YKK zippers.
There are two zippered hand warmer pockets and two chest pockets for storage.
Protection comes from very lightweight and flexible CE rated Vault armor in the
shoulders and elbows. There is also articulated CE armor in the back. Speed and
Strength has really raised the standard as far as back armor is concerned. As of
this year, they have CE rated armor in most of the jackets they sell. Most
brands lower priced jackets use only EVA foam back pads.
