Vests is a little more forgiving than jackets for fit, but the basics are the same… choose a vest that will be big enough for both your chest and belly. After taking some measurements and trying some one, we find this vest to match the size chart provided by Speed and Strength (see below). Most people will be able to choose the size they normally wear in men’s clothing, but I’d recommend you throw a tape around yourself and check your chest and belly and make sure that the size you choose will be big enough for both.

Our Two Cents
The Nomad leather vest is made of heavy premium cowhide. It is a collarless design with a front main zipper hidden behind a leather placket with snaps.
This is a really heavy duty leather vest… I’m not sure how you could ever wear this one out! The main front zipper is a larger metal unit which is “two way” meaning it has two zipper pulls so you can zip it open from the bottom if you like. This is a handy feature for shorter riders if the vest sits on your lap in the riding position. You can open the zipper from the bottom and allow the vest to lay down over your legs.
There is a leather placket (flap) and hidden snaps over the main zipper to give a sleek look. You get four pockets in front and then one inside patch pocket and a very nice gun pocket. The gun pocket is made of heavy textile material and on one side of the pocket is Velcro to attach your holster (assuming it has mating Velcro on it).
Inside the vest in back, there is a large zippered flap so you (or your tailor) can easily access the back side of the leather to attach club colors. And most of the back is one piece to give you a big blank canvas of black leather to add your colors. Overall, an excellent product. :: Paul, 10-03-19
