A “tactical” “bulletproof” vest – that is neither tactical nor bulletproof

What makes our leather bulletproof style vest better than the competition?

- we use heavier grade (2.5 oz+) cowhide leather
- We add our exclusive Sunglass Loop
- we use heavy duty thread for long wear
- our vest is made in USA, not some third world country!

Note: This style vest does NOT contain any body armor. It is strictly a riding vest.

They need someplace to put all those patches they seem to collect. In the Boy Scouts we just wore a sash.

A “riding vest” is upper body crash/abrasion protection for everything – except the most likely needed areas, the elbows & forearms...

It is a piece of riding gear but I wasn't intending to debate it's merits of style, safety, place of mfg origin, or usefulness.

I am just stating that it is a deal at half price if you are looking for one.

but since some of you asked...

style = it's slightly better looking than the vest your grandpa wore IMHO.
safety = it won't stop bullets but I suppose it would stop bug strikes to your upper torso if you don't have a windshield.
place of mfg origin = being from Canada I could care less where it was made but Americans are funny that way and that is who this product is aimed at.
usefulness = I guess it could display your club colors uhh... hold your sunglasses.... ok you got me there. ILMFAO

Q: What's the difference between a Harley Davidson and a Hoover vacuum cleaner?
A: The Harley has room for two dirtbags on board.

Or, 'the position of the dirtbag'.

I think it's funny, but I've told that joke to a few buddies with harley's and they don't think it's that funny.
