How To Choose A Leather Vest That Shouts

Let’s just get to it. Pick out leather vests that not only shout “I am a motorcyclist”, but also whisper “I am a rider, who lives the journey.” Avoid the cookie-cutter guides. We are looking to get straight to the point and to the heart of the matter a shipwreck in the sand.

Quality is important. Remember that not all leather coats are created equal. Choose between a leather as tough as nails that can stand up to abuse almost on its own, or a soft buttery lambskin. The choice you make will be based on your taste and how much abuse you are willing to put it through. Like fine vintage wines, good leather will last for years. Every mile is better.

Let’s get straight to the point. Finding a well-stitched vest is not the only thing that matters (although this is very important). It’s important to find a vest with character. Zippers must click and pockets deep enough to keep your keys for days. Check if the shoe has adjustable straps or laces. Chef’s kiss! It’s just like a kiss from a chef.

This is where you can really let your freaky Flag fly. Do not be afraid to try something new. You can go for a classic black look or something more daring that will make you stand out like a peacock at a penguin’s night. You can tell a tale with patches, pins and studs without saying a word. Remember that less is more unless you really want to go for it.

Let me explain. The vest you choose should be able to keep up, whether you are riding on backroads in your motorcycle or dancing at your cousin’s wedding. Look for features such as removable liners to keep you cool in the summer, and warm during those chilly night rides.

Heritage is something that you can’t find in just any store. Since your grandfather’s Indian Scout days, some brands have been outfitting riders. These vests are more than just a fashion statement. Wearing a vest is like wearing a part of history.

To find the best leather vest for motorcycle riding, you must know your preferences as a rider.

Use these tips to find the vest that fits you and is true to who you are. Simply saying “I bought it” will let someone know where you purchased the vest. Wear something cool to keep you cool on the road.
