Review of Viking Cycle Ironside Black Textile Jacket
As the weather gets warmer, riders are often torn between the protection of full gear and the comfort of summer clothes. The Ironside Textile Jacket from Viking Cycle allows a rider to have the best of both worlds.
Made from 100% 600D Polyester, the Ironside jacket provides protection with padding in the elbows and back. The design of the jacket provides for this protection, but also has mesh in key areas to allow for excellent ventilation.
Four pockets on the front provide for storage of small items such as keys, a cell phone, or camera. Adjustable straps around the waist area allow the rider to snug up the fit to keep the jacket from flapping in the wind. Snaps on the arm also offer some additional adjustability.
Sizing seemed to be spot on, a rarity in jackets these days. I would suggest that an offering of a “Tall” would be an like addition to this line of jackets, as 2 more inches of length would have worked better for me.
Overall, a solid jacket for milder temperatures that is easy on the wallet at $49.99 list price. Viking Cycles offers a wide variety of Motorcycle Jackets so head on over to their site and check them out.
