    Just wondering how many of you wear a leather vest when you are riding? Anf if you weart one, why?

    I usually choose not to wear one due to the warm temps here is south Georgia.

    Just curious

    I have and wear one of two. Depending on what I am doing. One for PGR missions and another for Southern Cruiser Rides. Good place to put sunglasses when not in use or gum just what ever small stuff you need to stash.

    I wear a vest when it's not too hot because it is slimming.:D
    The real reason is my holster clips to the inner pocket very nicely. Also it's where I have sewn my favorite patches.

    I agree...It's always better to use the pockets of a vest/jacket than jeans ;)

    I wear my vest because the inside pocket does hold my wallet a lot better than my jeans does. Also, to be honest with you, it looks cool!:p

    Leather vest is convenient (plenty of inside and outside pocket storage), provides a bit of upper torso warmth and does have a certain amount of "cool" factor for pins and what not. :D

    Actually, I wear an orange/reflective Icon mcycle vest b/c my wife wants me around for awhile (over my leather, of course). Guess a guy can never be too safe...:s
