Highway 21 Industry Hoody
Despite the fact that they don’t offer the protection we need while we’re pounding the pavement, sometimes hoodies are just what we’re in the mood for. In order to keep the good ol’ days close to heart, and keep injuries part of the past, Highway 21 created the heavyweight of the hoodie class. Designed to be as comfortable as your favorite hoody, but safe enough for the ride, the Industry Hoody has never been more ready for the road.
- Heavy-duty cotton polyester blend
- Comfort mesh lining
- DTS drawstring tuck system
- Hand-warmer pockets
- Cuff thumbhole
- Removable CE armor in shoulder and elbows
- Removable PE back protector
We checked the fit on these jackets with our size mannequins and we also spot checked a few different size jackets with a tape. We feel this model runs true to size. The jackets are sold in ordinary “alpha” sizes, so you can choose the size you normally wear in men’s clothing.
Our Two Cents
Add removable elbow and shoulder armor to a standard poly/cotton hoody and you’ve got the Industry Hoody.
The hoody shell is a bit more than a standard hoody since the shell is a blend of poly and cotton which will improve its abrasion resistance slightly (but only slightly as there is not further reinforcement here). And the inside is lined with nylon mesh, and the mesh serves as the framework for the armor pockets too. The sleeve ends have the thumb holes in the cuffs to keep the sleeves down. The hoody comes with shoulder and elbow armor and a back pad.
This one is offered in a plain black version and another version with a large Highway 21 logo on the back. :: Paul, 02-28-18
