Motorcycle Armored Hoody (Hoodie)

Hi All,

I've been quiet on here for a few months--from the looks of things, not too much is new. Hope you are all doing great!

I picked up something today I was excited to tell you about. You all probably have seen it, but I hadn't. It's an armored hoodie sweatshirt.

http://www.cyclegear.com/CycleGear/S.../43355_59409_2

I'm pretty excited to try it out. On the website it gets pretty decent reviews. The only thing is you definitely need to buy a size (or two) larger than you usually fit into.

Anyone have one already?

I've got another post about soft saddlebags I'll throw out here in a minute too.

See ya!

You mentioning SOA reminded me of something.was at wal-mart last summer and flying my colors mind you we're one piece so territory shouldn't matter but you never know.I am halfway down an isle and notice a dude staring at me at the end of the aisle.I turn to look at him and he kinda takes off quickly and I see what looks like a three piece patch on his back.I'm like Damn it wtf Is up with this sheet so I follow him to ask what's up. He darts into another aisle and stops by a friend and I notice he's wearing a SOA shirt with their patch on the back.stoopId me.lol.my Prez gotta kick outta that one

Link don't work for me, but if its the one I think it is, it has armor, but no Kevlar. So, great to wear under a leather jacket that doesn't have armor.

But then, it still is better than wearing a hoodie that has no armor.

I ran across this hoodie on Amazon...it's a little pricier than the other one, but it seems from the reviews that it fits really well, and has Kevlar & armor... might be worth checking out!

yet that could work with a leather. but then again, if I'm wearing leather, I probably won't wear a hoodie too. unless it was really cold outside and if it's that cold, I most likely won't be riding anyways. lol

I'd much rather wear a hoodie like that one ^! although for that much $, I would rather buy a riding jacket.

either way. both are cool and yes, are still better than just a plain old cotton hoodie.

if it goes vroom or boom, I LIKE IT!

Ok, got the link to work. Under product details it does say the shoulders and elbows are reinforced with Kevlar.

What do you wear under your leather jacket Ruger? A wifebeater? Or nothing?

I have two leather jackets an neither has armor, so work fine for me. Not sure what use the hood is though.....
