Viking Motorcycle Jacket Review


There are many features in this biking jacket which make a great purchase. I will try to describe them a little better from a user’s perspective.

Waterproof

The outer shell of the Viking motorcycle jacket is made with waterproof Rock Tex™ 600 material that makes it waterproof against water and sweat. So even if you are wearing this jacket for safety during the summer months, you know your jacket will not damage from your sweat. Similarly, this is going to be great during the rainy season as well. Just wear your jacket with style and you are good to go to ride your bike. In addition, the zippers are waterproof as well. These zippers will be easy to grab onto even when they are wet. The waterproof ability mainly makes this a true 3 season jacket as in for summer, monsoon, and winter.

Custom Adjustment

That’s right, even if it is a store bought a readymade item, this Viking motorcycle jacket has the 6 Point Sure Fit™ technology to make it fit your body. The 6 point means you can adjust the jacket according to your body shape in 6 key points. There are adjustable belt straps as well. You can adjust these straps to make them more comfortable for you.

Ventilation System

This Viking motorcycle jacket has another new technology that is the ventilation system to make you cool during the scorching summer heat. The unique ventilation system comfortably allows the cool air in and pushes the hot air out. You will feel cozy and comfortable inside even if everything is burning up at one of those typical summer afternoons.

Removable Portions

Yes, this jacket has many removable parts. There is C.E. approved armor in the shoulder pads and elbows which will give you extra support if you are in for a rugged ride. If you are going about your daily business, you can easily remove these. There is full sleeve liner that is also removable. moreover, there is removable spine armor with pockets for options C.E. spine protector. As I have mentioned earlier, this Viking motorcycle jacket is clearly apt in providing you the safety.

Safety

The C.E. approval itself is the indication that this Viking motorcycle jacket indeed is a safe and secure product. The C.E. means that it had to pass all the highest impact tests. To make it safe during the night time, there are reflective stripes on the jacket.

Special Features

Special features make a product one of a kind and help it stand out among the numerous competitors. For this Viking motorcycle jacket, the special features are many. The jacket has a convenient quick access mobile phone pocket, one hidden pocket, a knife as well as a sunglass pocket. The quick access mobile phone pocket lets you grab your phone when you make a quick stop while you are riding. There is a head phone system with the jacket as well to help you push your headphones from the phone pocket through the jacket’s collar and into your ears. Just imagine how convenient that is and I personally love how much easier it makes my life. It is obvious from these small but important features that a lot of thoughts went in this jacket to make it more versatile.
