Sometimes, all you want is a good, honest product at a good, honest price. If that's the case, Shift Racing's Vendetta Leather motorcycle jacket is, well, sticking with the basics and doing it well. Made of 1.2 and 1.4mm premium grain cowhide leather, the Shift Vendetta jacket features dual layer leather in key areas for added protection and abrasion resistance, and removable CE approved armor on the shoulders and elbows. The dropped back hides an integrated pocket for an optional back protector, and waist adjusts help snug it up. Reflective black piping integrated in to numerous seams for greater night visibility.
The removable/Washable thermal vest liner zips right out, is washable, and adds a good deal of warmth without being to hot; it includes wallet pockets. Its inner panels along the zippers, bottom and neck are lined with nylon, custom perforated leather panels provide additional airflow and circulation. Integrated memory foam back padding for extra comfort, and semi auto lock zippers in the forearm provide strength and secure closure in the event of a crash. Some motorcyclists ride basic bikes because they don't hold with all this fancy, high-tech stuff. And they don't want a bunch of extraneous zippers and do-ads, if you're that kind of person, the Shift Racing Vendetta Leather motorcycle jacket is probably your kind of jacket. It is available in black, and the Zebra strip version which is not something I would select... but everybody is free to select what he prefers.
