There's only 3 things this vest needs to be perfect. 1. Either shorter length. 2. 2 way zipper (bottom up). 3 laced up sides for expandability. I bought it, loved it but have since upgraded to a vest like I described.
Great vest. The zip is/ out liner makes it a bit heavy
I got my vest in today and here is what I like about it and some things I don't like.
Likes: Leather looks good, soft, lightweight and breathable. There are not a lot of V cut vests out there for warmer months, so I was hoping this would be what I needed.
Personal problems: when zipped up, because it has no cuts in the bottom, the sides of the vest tend to flare out on the sides a bit. May just be my body shape and not a problem with the vest itself, but I would recommend lace sides or small notches cut at the bottom to allow for more movement.
Dislikes: outside of finding a few loose threads. My main complaint is that the elastic that's supposed to retain a firearm is useless. I tried different firearms and though the Barrell can fit inside it, it doesn't cover the trigger guard and is poorly secured. If I stretch the elastic over the guard, it feels like I'm pushing the limits of the elastic and then the firearm doesn't want to come out at all. I suggest a seperate pocket sleeve or sticky holster if you plan on using the CCW pocket.
I don't own or ride a motorcycle. I got this vest primarily to be a conceal carry garment. With that regard, I am a little disappointed. But as a riding jacket or just as a casual wear item, it's great.
