I know this is a bit late, but I have the Speed and Strength Stars and Stripes jacket and love it. I don't know how well the construction of the jacket is, but you get a lot of bang for your buck, and the jacket looks nice off the bike too. But I don't live in Arizona so I don't fight the heat as bad as you do.
Heh, you look like Summit1g (a popular twitch streamer) with moustache :D You could do a review on the flanel shirt or even kevlar hoodies. They look pretty nice but like you, I'm not sure how protective they really are
Considering the fact that you have a lot of senior citizen drivers in southern Arizona, I would wear high viz gear. Style doesn't count as much as function. Think in terms of your fire fighting gear, stylish, or something to save your life.
Icon overlord jacket works good for summer and early winter down to about 50 degrees F. It has a vest liner that blocks out a decent amount of wind and in the summer without the vest it flows insane amounts of air at speed
great video, I agree black does match everything, myself, I like the look of the two tone , the first jacket you had on. it did look better in the video. not a fan of the hoodie , but I have a had issues with the zippers on the speed and strength line of jackets and the Velcro ripped on the one that I had used. ride safe, look forward too seeing what you end up in.
What ? Nov. 86 degrees ??? Wow !?
Like to comment as good for me, but for You, yeah well, black keeps heat in and sometimes here is hard for some people to see, where that two-tone Brown looks good and is easier for alot to see.
Toss up bro..
Black and white is better to see in Rain or Snow, white in Rain and Black in Snow. Up here a number one eye opener, where your at ?
This is going to sound really weird but try the first manufacturing top performer. I live in Florida and I started riding with it in October when it was 85 degrees and when you take the liner out and open all the vents, this thing works awesome. It vents better than my Icon Merc. The coldest I've been in with it is about 55 degrees and it does pretty good with the liner. The down side is that it doesn't come with an armor set and they use kinda awkward sizes for the armor. https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/first-manufacturing-top-performer-jacket
I wear a full leather jacket my self but I live in North Carolina.... but where did you get your boots or who makes them I need to get me some I just wear my station boots..... sigh I know that's not ideal but I can't find anything that looks or deals good. You should get the tan and black one.
I used to live in Tucson and found the Rev'It GT-R Air to be comfortable in the summer, and most of the year. The Scorpion Influx was also good, but it felt better in colder weather than hotter weather.
Get the first one...it looked awsum on u...with the leather arm it'll still be usable if u ever go down...which I hope never happens. Plus up those mountains it's like wearing extra insurance (protection & warmth)
I feel you on the getting to muscular thing, I wear a old river road leather jacket for the winter here in Virginia. I'm looking to upgrade to a more year round set up, something I can layer with. Something like that first jacket you threw on, black is always a good option, goes with everything.
I live and ride my Harley Sportster 1200 Superlow in Scottsdale. Summer I have a mesh jacket that was about $100 on Amazon. I have Cortech Sequioa that has removable liner and removal sections over mesh. Not as cool as my mesh but ok into the 90s. I also have a LeatherUp leather jacket with removable liner that duo to great venting is good from the 40’s to the 80’s and looks the coolest of my 3. The leather is a little too long but fits well in chest and shoulders. All came with shoulder and elbow armor and back pads.
I believe you should purchase the jacket that you like the best and that fits you the way you like. I have three jackets. I have a tour master air intake jacket a Tour Master Advanced 4 jacket and a first gear Kilimanjaro 37.5 model. They are all nice jackets and the tour Masters have a removable lining and the cost is reasonable on those. Thanks for the video and good luck finding the jacket you like.
I really like my Speed and Strength mesh jacket for summer. But I just got the Olympia Ranger jacket and overpants. They are both waterproof and have liners. So far they work great on cold mornings without the liners, but I'm waiting to ride in rain to see how that works out. But, I'm in west Texas so it might be a while.
Please don't take this as being rude. Not at all. I like you and your channel. :D
I say, try the base layers like you suggested. See if you can follow your own advice, and tell us how that goes. This way, you also save money, and you force yourself to lose some buffness/*fat. :D I think it feels great to spend money, and to get something new, but when you can make do, it may be worth it.
if you're looking for a more tailored fit, take a look at dainese and spidi. They're a little more pricey but they make great gear! I have a speed and strength summer jacket that I like, but they seem to do allot of the boxy/ American cuts. Also, I'm jealous of your weather. I love Philadelphia but it's unseasonably cold today...20 degrees with a real feel of 12. I had to give in and take the car to work today.
I have a Speed & Strength Off The Chain jacket and I like it a lot, especially for the sub-$200 price. It’s textile, has Speed & Strength brand CE Level 2 back, shoulders and elbows. Adjustments at the waists and wrists. Vents on the arms and back, both sets zip. Has a removable hoodie liner that zips out with wristlets and belt loop snaps. I’m a bigger dude (t-shirt sized 2XL), ordered in 3XL and seems to fit fine but gets snug with the hoodie. I also live in southern Louisiana and its alright in the summer time and for days when it’s gonna be below 60, the hoodie liner really helps.
Speed and Strength Last Man Standing Armored Moto Shirt is what I ride with in the Phoenix winters with under armor base layer when below 60 in the mornings. Basically a black denim jacket with elbow/shoulder/back protector. I ride a cruiser, so it pairs well with it.
I haven't heard anything bad about them, definitely more in town/commuter type gear. I ride in the mountains quite a bit so I prefer ADV gear because it is about perfect for the wide array of conditions we can get in Wyoming/Colorado, even though I ride a sport tourer and never leave pavement.
My winter jacket is a hi-viz Richa jacket, which is amazing because it has full CE 2 D3O armour, decent reflective panelling and is super comfortable. It's also fairly cheap when new, at about £150 (not certain of how much it costs in the States).
I had a 3 Season S/S jacket for years and loved it. Only reason I got rid of it was it got too big. After loosing 105lbs, it was like a Tent on me. So I sold it and got a 3 Season Harley Jacket. Not because it was Harley, because I loved the jacket...It's REALLY nice to have 1 jacket that fits the bill for multiple seasons. Also, its nice to pack the liner when you head up to the mountains when it gets cooler.
Michael Casler wow, dude. Congratulations on losing the weight. I'm trying to drop about 50 pounds and it's awesome to hear about other people's success. Also, thanks for the comment on the S&S gear. I'm glad it holds up since I've been eyeing their stuff for a little while and I dig the low-key look of their jackets
I like the colorway of the first jacket but you seem to be going towards the 2nd one. Oh and i wear hoodies under my jackets all the time and my advice is to make sure you tuck the laces in because thats gonna be dangling in the wind while you ride and it will hit your helmet and make annoying noises. Other than that they both actually look good.
I have a summer jacket with armor, but my cold-weather riding jacket doesn't have pockets for armor. So I bought one
of those flannel "shirts" and armor to go with it to wear under my winter riding jacket. It was way cheaper then a new jacket and allows me to layer. I know you're not going to need it in southern AZ, but if any cold weather riders are trying to extend their seasons like I am, it's a good option.
My wife won a pair of their jeans last night at a dealer dinner. They seemed like normal jeans to me. The knees had a different fabric on the inside. but there was no padding nor a place to put any. Didn't feel like there was kevlar in them either.
I'm not gonna look a gift horse in the mouth, but I can't say I'd recommend them or would buy them unless one just loves their style.
Hopefully, their other gear is a little more substantial. I'm a Firstgear dood. They make very good quality stuff at very reasonable prices.
The effective home remedies for baldness and hair loss in men include oil massages and including coconut milk, eggs, avocados, orange juice, aloe vera, neem paste, henna, mayonnaise, honey, black pepper, vinegar, and lemon juice in their diet. The remedies also include cutting back on red meat, eating nuts and brown rice, boosting B-complex vitamin intake, and maintaining good thyroid health.
For millions of men across the world, regardless of culture, class, nationality, religion, or color, hair loss is an unavoidable aspect of growing older. Fortunate are those who do not face hair loss problems even in their old age. However, a majority of men face this issue in their 40s, 50s, or even earlier.
Causes of Baldness or Hair Loss in Men.
There are a number of causes of male hair loss, including:
Male pattern baldness Alopecia Fungal infections Psychological disorders Chemotherapy side effects Nutrient deficiencies Hormonal imbalances Lack of circulation on the scalp Stress.
It is important to note that hair loss occurs in women as well, for some similar reasons, and some different ones. We will cover hair loss in women in a separate article. Men predominantly suffer from this health condition, particularly male pattern baldness and early onset hair loss from age 20-40.
However, there are ways to slow down the rate of male hair loss or baldness, and even stimulating the hair follicles to reproduce hair. A few home remedies for hair loss and baldness issue are discussed below.
