I need a new jacket. I see these jackets everywhere and I want to know if these are truly the best motorcycle jackets under 200 bucks. Does it fit a different niche than what I am used to? I dont even know...

I almost bought a Speed and Strength jacket until I noticed their logo is just "SS" miss me with that nazi shit
Bigwoo (9 days ago)
thats why i liked it.
Raven R (3 months ago)
Mitchell Brington "SS" isn't exclusive to Nazis. For example, would you not drive a Chevrolet Cobalt SS because it says "SS"? That is the dumbest thing I've ever heard.

shit, I'd personally ride naked if I had to, I don't give a damned what I'm wearing as long as I get to ride.
Mike Jank (7 months ago)
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.
The Driver's Perspective (7 months ago)
I've had a number of Speed and Strength items over the years and I always come away impressed with their durability. No, they are not nearly as high quality as Dianese or A* but they work damn well.
Annie (7 months ago)
All black but not with those brown boots.

I live in Texas I actually bought that speed and strength jacket I love it you do have to wear one base layer when it gets below 50 but it's not bad at all

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.

nice jacket , even has a detachable inner lining, with a hoody ! cannot go wrong when it comes with a hoody! awsome vlog !

Christian Torres (10 months ago)
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
Zeus& Atlas (10 months ago)
Straight black jacket is good
Jack Deth (10 months ago)
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.
Jason Foulks (10 months ago)
I wear flannel shirts with D30 armor for the shoulders and elbows. I love it in the hot summer. BUT, I wear a leather vest over it with a huge strong spinal armor
Kevin Keys (11 months ago)
DanDantheman, 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 ?

Striker51z (11 months ago)
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.
Mark Cabalistic (11 months ago)
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.
adeesha pietersz (11 months ago)
Get base layers or heated layer which will be cheaper I do this as I live in U.K. 🇬🇧 and the weather changes often here especially in winter.
VVoltz (1 year ago)
Get the Icon DKR. Awesome Adventure jacket, bomb-proof, really cheap these days. Comes with D3O

I like the black jacket
Black Monster1100 (1 year ago)
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 really like Tobacco mc clothing line. A lil expensive but it looks good!

MotoRickyRicardo (1 year ago)
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.
Doug Faigel (1 year ago)
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.
Johnny Striple (1 year ago)
Try never to buy Pakistani leather.
dragonrider385 (1 year ago)
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.
MrDamon888 (1 year ago)
first one looked better with those boots
An-Cap Roads (1 year ago)
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.
Steven Potter (1 year ago)
I'm rockin the Speed and Strength Rust and Redemption Olive Gloves. Take a look at those, think you would like them.
Jacob Martin (1 year ago)
Band of brothers looks sharp on you. The blue and black version in the still is on my list.
huyked (1 year ago)
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.
Brad Bjerga (1 year ago)
I think that first jacket looks pretty awesome
Emilio Aguirre (1 year ago)
Everything is contrasting. You're geared to the teeth, but, uh, you might want to try and be more considerate of colors if you're concerned with aesthetics.
Donovan Bishop (1 year ago)
Emilio Aguirre Yeah. The boots and the helmet really don't go with blue jeans and black or white mixed jacket.
Jor Ray (1 year ago)
I like my S&S jacket for year round, but I wish i bought leather now.
Robert Stimmel (1 year ago)
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.
vulcan1358 (1 year ago)
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.
mark henry (1 year ago)
Get a nice Aero leather motorcycle jacket, super cool, develops character/patina and lasts forever. Textile stuff does nothing for me. thanks.
Peregrin Guillen (1 year ago)
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.
mrvwbug44 (1 year ago)
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.
KW Tay (1 year ago)
your boots are out of place in terms of color and design against your pants and jackets.
Scorp (10 months ago)
his boots match his tires .. all terrain .
MrHasie (1 year ago)
I wear a base layer, otherwise same jacket year round.
MrHasie (1 year ago)
First, a jacket is better than no jacket and second, I have been rocking mine for a couple years with no issues - zippers included. I have the rust&redemption jacket/jeans.
MrHasie (1 year ago)
WHat I don't like about mine is the liner is the vest type. Keeps my chest warm but the arms are cold.
MrHasie (1 year ago)
Also, I ride at night and a black jacket/helmets are a no for me. Been there and done that. Obviously.. Commenting as the video plays.
MrHasie (1 year ago)
Also, I took my shoulders out because I couldn't head check with a helmet... your lateral delts may interfere.
Robert Ortiz (1 year ago)
I like the one with the hoodie! I have a street and steel jacket very similar to that one with a hoodie and i love it! Ck them out in cycle gear or revzilla
jwkzzr (1 year ago)
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).
Michael Casler (1 year ago)
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.
Alejandro Gonzales (1 year ago)
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
Pao Reyes (1 year ago)
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.
Great Egret (1 year ago)
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.
Donovan Bishop (1 year ago)
I'm really liking the black jackets with the jeans but I'm not sure about the boots colliding with the black jackets as well
Saint Andre (1 year ago)
The first one looked better, maybe you could throw on a base layer like you said, have you looked at the biltwell gloves?
Jodog (1 year ago)
Ive looked into the s&s off the chain 2.0 and it seems to be praised overall

Furygan titan evo textile jacket...quality and good armour. Loving it ! Are Furygan in the US ? Waterproof and removable warm liner
