JERRY W. from LAS VEGAS, NV:
I'm 5'10" Athletic Build I wear a 44" suit but if i use a tape to measure my chest it's 47". 34" waist. I bought a Medium and it fit just right can't eat an extra donut. I can fit a hoodie under it too. The way to adjust is just put the hoodie on then the vest and loosen up the straps. Then zip up the vest and close the velcro strops on the side from the bottom up. I do think I should have gotten the Large due to my broad shoulders but Medium does fit which is very very suprising becuase when I buy Sidici Jackets, or Bilt Jackets it's always XL. The vest is awesome too. Basically it's the same as the one with the expensive name for $200 so if your not a label whore then you won't care, and you get the benefit of having a plain CUT without all the logo everywhere.

I like it, fits nice. I'm 6'1 215 and I'm wearing a medium. Probably could get away with a large but I like the fit of the medium.

James Kaetler from Fruitvale, British Columbia:
Great vest! Looks good and is nice and short so it doesn't ride up when I sit on my bike. Gun pockets are fairly small but deep. Had to send the first one back which was too big along with my wife's jacket which was too small. Cost $23 to ship it back for an exchange! Not cool guys!! Get your sizing charts right to eliminate returns, or pay for returns yourself. Have bought from Leatherup multiple times and appreciate the selection and value associated with your products, but your exchange and return costs are unfair to your customers.

Filemon R. from STOCKTON, CA:
I received my vest within 4-5 days after ordering it, it was a very quick and easy transaction.Take everyone's advice and order 2 sizes down, I normally wear XL/L I ordered M and it was still too big, the return process was also fast and simple during the process I went ahead and ordered a S and it arrived and my returned was received about the same time. The small fit perfect I can even wear a hoddie underneath without any restrictions. Leatherup rocks in every way. I highly recommend this site to everyone. thanks Leatherup!

Howard S. from OVERLAND PARK, KS:
March 21, 2013 Howie S. from KC Got my vest today, really nice looking and typical quality leather. I read the reviews so I ordered a size smaller than I usually wear which is an XL. I am 6' 218#s 47" chest 34" waist. I do work out and all of my leather is purchased here due to quality and fit. I ordered a L and it is gigantic not just huge on me. May be luck of the draw in sizing with this vest. Sending it back and ordering the XS815 instead. Hope the different cut will fit properly. Cruised the highway today in 19 degree weather till it started snowing riding in leather all purchased here. Can't beat LeatherUp Buffalo hide. Stay safe people

Noah K. from Indianapolis, IN:
I purchase this vest and found it to be a beautiful addition to my riding gear. The only problem is that its designed for a person with a slim torso and very broad shoulders. I wore it only inside and did a lot of looking in the mirror, but found that the shoulders stuck out over mine by 2 inches on each side. I normally wear an XL in all tops and ordered this size in this vest. Big mistake in that it seems to run two sizes larger than what I always wear. I should have exchanged it for a medium because I love the vest. It looks really cool. I also had problems with the front and back of the neck puckering out when I held my arms out as in holding onto my handlebars. Again, this could have been corrected by exchanging it for the same vest down one or two sizes. LeatherUp is a great place to shop but ordering over the internet is difficult when you have not tried on the clothing before you buy it which is true of other places I have ordered clothing. Otherwise, LeatherUp was good to their word of refunding my purchase price. Great place to shop with great products.

christopher p. from WOODSIDE, NY:
This is a cool LOOKING vest (especially when tricked out with patches), and I appreciate the low cost. But that's about it. The CRAFTSMANSHIP is sub par. In particular, the zippers & stitching are crappy. The zipper on inner chest pocket has already torn from the leather. One of the zippers holding that attaches the so-called back armor to the vest splits/separates. For looks, I do love this vest and will keep rocking it! But I DO NOT expect it to provide much in the way of protection.

Kevin S. from Seattle, WA:
Quality is good for the price, the sizing ran big for me and I had to return the item for a small. I'm 5/9 160 lbs. If you're thin, the straps on the side are for style only as there isn't enough velcro to adjust the size smaller. It's made in Pakistan and they attached the armor to the wrong side of the liner. This was case for both vests. It's still functional, and is more comical than anything. You'll see what I mean when you get yours. Overall, I'd buy it again because it's cheap and doesn't have the ICON logo.

Dimitry L. from Brooklyn, NY:
I noticed the price went up on these vest. I purchased it for $77 with shipping when it first came out, now it is $89. Even with the increased price, I would buy it again. My motorcycle club ended up buying thier vest, that look exactly like these at a biker's leather store we have in the city. So far all of their vest have fallen apart one way or another (broken straps, stiching coming apart, zippers breaking). My vest continues to look like it did the first day I bought it. The only other vest I see that is comparable to the quality of this vest is the Icon, that also looks exactly like this one, only at 3X the cost.

Michael G. from GASTON, OR:
Good value and quality of materials, but as far as the sizing I am a bit confused. I normally wear medium and large jackets. Scorpion's medium fits me perfect. I'm in between M and L in Icon. I wanted a stand alone vest for summertime that would fit nice and snug. I'm about 5'11" and 160 lbs. I ordered a small in this vest and was worried it might be too tight. I was wrong! The small fits me as loosely as an Icon Large. I don't quite understand the sizing. I will need to layer up under this thing to keep from drowning in it. My advice would be, if you are planning to wear this as a stand alone vest, order two sizes smaller than you think you should. I just wish there was an extra small I could order. Pretty ridiculous sounding for me to need an "extra small" of anything.

Stuart K. from MONROVIA, CA:
I have ordered several items from Leatherup. Every one has been excellent and arrived on time as promised. This vest is very good quality and great value for money. I saw at least one other review saying that this vest seems big the advertised size. Normally folks recommend to buy big. I am normally an XL and I bought another vest at 2XL and it just fits. So I bought this one at 3XL and found it to be way too big. So I recommend with this particular vest to buy on your normal size. Other than the size issue I can recommend this vest. Great job leatherup!

jeffrey d. from WASHINGTON, UT:
Great vest for the money. I only have 2 complaints thoe. First the back portion by the neck was cut too high. It cost me 5 bucks to have it trimmed down. Not a big deal. Second is the pockets on mine are not as deep as the ones on the cloth vest of the same type from these guys. Other wise I recommend this vest for the money. My bullistic vest from these guys is 2 years old and still doing fine

Laura C. from CRAIG, CO:
I ordered this vest for my husband's anniversary present. Superb quality and style. He absolutely loved it!! Fits a bit larger in the shoulders on him but he is tall and thin so it is hard to get things that fit him perfectly in the length and shoulders. Love the vents and the ability to adjust the sides to tailor the fit. He rides a Buell so the fact that the back protector is segmented makes it really comfortable as he is riding. Very satisfied with this product as well as price and quick shipping to me. Thank You for such a high quality product at an amazing price!! Will definitely order from here again!!

John C. from Knoxville, TN:
This Vest is Eff'n AWESOME!!! It's got a really nice ride to it. It looks just as good at the bar fully unzipped with a beer, as it does zipped up and haulin'. Closely resembles other brand name vests without immitating, and definately makes a unique statement. The "Cross-draw" style pockets are A LOT DEEPER than you'd think! The pictures don't show it very well, but the sides are connected by material behind the straps...making it feel much more secure. The back armor is segmented like a pill-bug or armadillo. It flexes very well when slumping over for sport-bike riders' agressive posturing. At 160 mph it still doesn't catch air or parachute at all! Definately one of the best riding accessories i own. It looks super hard-core, lightweight, subtle, and gives the freedom of movement i'm looking for while not overstating that image of "HEY LOOK AT ME, I RIDE A MOTORCYCLE!!! DID I MENTION I RIDE A MOTORCYCLE? ASK ME IF I RIDE A MOTORCYCLE!" For anyone who is tired of ignoring their armored-up leathers because it's too hot, or the 5" zipper "vents" just aren't cutting it, or because when you get to your destination...now you've gotta deal with babysitting a 2' wide pile of expensive leather... THIS IS THE VEST FOR YOU!!! Motorcycles are inherrently dangerous just because they exist...i'd rather show my t-shirts, muscles, or under-layers with a vest that I ACTUALLY LIKE TO WEAR, than have an expensive inVESTment in a jacket that is heavy, cumbersome, hides my physique, and roasts me in humid weather. GREAT JOB X-Element! One Fix to this long rating: I'm sure the elasticity of the straps won't last forever, so they're gonna look bad when they "bacon" up, and for a jacket that's fully leather, why use textiles here? That, and if you've got an athletic build (42in chest, 32in waist, 6'2" tall) the sides could be made so i could tighten up a little more. I'm gonna take up some slack in the middle and sew them up a little shorter. Other than that... Eff'n Awesome Vest! I'm definately buying another one as soon as this one's toast...could be a long time tho considering the quality craftsmanship!

Branden R. from FONTANA, CA:
The vest was great for the price. It was thick and great for riding. The only problem is that i noticed the spine protector is sewn upside down. I dont think it will affect its protection. You dont even notice it when your wearing it. Other than that its a great buy. I would still buy from leatherup again.

Kurtis A. from TROY, NY:
Just received mine, and I must say it's pretty nice for the money. The leather is nice and supple, but thick enough to let you know you're wearing it. I agree with Benjamin though that there should be a liner between the back armor and the leather, but that's minor. The fit was spot on for me. I wear an XL mesh type jacket with armor, and this fit nicely over it in XL size. The arm holes are well sized, so you don't struggle to fit it over other layers. Also I like the little touches, such as the leather pulls on the zippers, the perforated leather panels, and the stretchy sides. Now to get my club patch sewn on there, and it's good to go. Just a note: if you live on the east coast, you might want to think about expedited shipping, as I ordered on the 25th, and I just got my order today (the 7th). Not Leatherup's fault, just the logistics of shipping across the country.

I`m having my club patch sewn on and several of my members have already asked when I bought this vest.....I directed them here! Outstanding quality and great service. I will be back!!! Please disregard my rating....this vest gets 5 stars!!!

This is a really nice vest. It looks like the icon moto search and destroy vest. The removable back armor is great! I only wish there was also a liner in between the armor panel and your back when the armor is removed. Great vest, would recommend to others.
