5-BALL LEATHERS’ BIKER LEATHER VEST
We created a line of 5-Ball jackets, vests and JAK Shirts for tough environments with industrial-strength construction. Whether you are heading to Sturgis or cross town in a rainstorm, our 5-Ball leather, especially our biker leather vest, delivers comfort, security and good looks.
TIME FOR A GEAR CHANGE
The Biker Leather Vest was design for current riding requirements of a chopper jockey. Whether you ride a Choppa, Bobber or cruiser, you have limited space. The 5-Ball Leathers’ Special Ops biker leather vest is designed to be a Swiss Army Knife vest—it has (13) pockets, 7 pockets inside and 6 pockets outside plus secure storage.
Once we compete a design, we go out and torture test them. We refine our designs to ensure they are multi-task garments. That’s why our stuff has so much storage and why the pockets are so deep. We keep your gear safe and secure.
THE LAYERING STRATEGY – The purpose of layering is to keep you comfortable, insulated and protected. Often times a t-shirt, hoodie and a 5-Ball Jacket, Vest or Shirt is all you need. Then the rider is able to modulate their comfort level by adjusting their layers. Our leathers can easily be rolled up and stowed in your saddlebags or handlebars when not needed.
5-Ball garments are used as the mid-layer or outer layer depending upon riding conditions. Usually 3 layers are identified as follows:
- Inner layer provides comfort by keeping the skin dry
- Mid layer provides warmth. Also called insulating layer
- Shell layer protects from wind and/or water. Also called outer layer which works as protection over the other two layers
Clothes can combine two adjacent layers, as in the case of warm undergarments that provide both comfort and insulation
Every 5-Ball Leathers’ JAK Shirts, Jacket & Vest comes with conceal / security pockets
OUR BIKER LEATHER VEST HAS WHAT YOU NEED
This puppy really fits. It has solid conceal pockets on the inside for your weapon, cell phone, glasses, or valuables. That’s six pockets inside combined with our classic, durable 100-percent cotton twill plaid lining.
The exterior includes a heavy duty gun metal grey zipper front, bound leather neck trim and double needle seam construction. This means the design included techniques and materials to ensure the vest is a tool that can be used for years to come.
Bandit spec’d inside media pocket
The Special Ops Vest has six pockets including two comfortable walking pockets, two classic flap pockets and two zip chest pockets. The waist band has tightening flap snaps.
5-Ball Leathers’ utilize Buffalo leather due to its excellent resistance to abrasion and wind. When motorcycles were invented, some riders took to wearing heavy leather jackets to protect from road rash and wind blast.
We honor those road warriors of the past with top-quality motorcycle leather. It’s superior to any practical man-made fabric for abrasion protection.
