Imagine your favorite hoody, but with enough built in protection to ride in. The Vincent Hoody is just that. The outer fabric is a Kevlar-Coolmax blend that provides abrasion resistance and moisture control while the liner is a Cordura-Nyco material that further increases slide protection. Add armor, or use this as a smart underlayer in an already armored jacket. This classic black hoody with minimal branding and thoughtful moto features is an instant favorite.
The Vincent features pockets for shoulder, elbow and back armor. You can pick up a complete RSD kit that will work and fit just fine, however we reccomend going with a combo of RSD back protector, and a la carte D3O shoulder and elbow armor sets. (The D30 is softer and more flexible with as good or better protection than the RSD/Forcefield shoulder/elbow sets.)
This hoddy has some other nice touches, such as a hidden zippered stash pocket in the kangaroo pouches, a heavy duty YKK aqua guard main zipper, and a drawstring that's thoughtfully routed inside the sweatshirt thorugh a second grommet, keeping it from flapping in the wind and flaying your face.
This is a great option for running around town (think more NYC speeds than LA), and offers a great layering piece to throw a Schott or other decently thick leather or canvas jacket over top of. Or rock it on its own for about a million times more protection than your standard cotton hooded sweatshirt.
