Vanson jackets are sized generously through the torso and will accommodate a chest consistent with the stated chest size of the jacket (measure your chest with a tape to get an accurate indication). Vanson’s fit the average height person best, and the overall cut will accommodate a sturdy or muscular build well (not so well for the tall and thin types though). The adjustable waist feature will accommodate a wide variety of waist/belly sizes for a given chest size which makes a good fit pretty easy. If you have a bit of a belly, you’ll want to check your belly with the tape too. Make sure the belly is no bigger than 4” less than the jacket size you’ve selected. For example, a size 48 jacket would handle a max. belly size of about 44. The adjustable waist will snug down to about 10 to 12 inches (for the more trim people out there). Try Vanson’s Sizing Chart for a second opinion on fit. Vanson’s chart is developed for a snug fit, which they recommend.
Our Two Cents
Vanson recently offered us a special group of inventory at a very attractive price, so we took all the inventory they had. Take advantage of the savings while this inventory lasts. The Mark 2 Hurricane is the best protection available in a jacket that is made for comfort in very hot weather. The jacket is fully perforated all over to allow maximum air flow through the jacket. Vanson uses the best perforated leather available anywhere. It’s the same thickness and quality of their standard garment leather, the holes are very plentiful (many per square inch) and the holes are very cleanly cut. The wind literally blows right through this jacket. The Hurricane offers the same “Mark 2” features as Vanson’s standard black CSV2, but the Hurricane adds two tone styling and reflective piping and Vanson sleeve patches for night time visibility. Any of Vanson’s “Mark 2” styles offer the following features: 1) you can add armor kits (bottom of the page), 2) add a Streamliner vest (to extend the useful temp range just a bit), and they’ll attach to Vanson sport pants (both the Traveler styles and the new Technical pants).
Note on the “solar” color: One of the colors offered in this group is “solar”. In the light, it’s an off-white with just a touch of light green tint. The leather is phosphorescent so that it glows in the dark. How long will it glow?.... don’t know for sure. The feature is more novelty than anything. If you wanted a glow in the dark Vanson, this is a heck of bargain though!
Options: This Vanson jacket is “armor ready” which means it has an access zipper to install Vanson armor in the shoulders, elbows and back. This jacket will also accept Vanson’s Streamliner Vest which can be used to extend the jacket’s comfortable temperature range. The vest acts as a wind barrier and provides insulation for colder weather.
