Van's Ride Review: Riding in the Speed and Strength Hammer Down Jacket is a unique experience. The AR500 Super Stretch material used absolutely lives up to it's name offering a level of stretch I have never before felt in a motorcycle jacket taking comfort to the next level. Ventilation was solid, the vents performed very well allowing air to circulate freely when the intake and exhaust vents were open. The AR500 chassis blocked the wind while riding which would make this a good jacket for cool (vents closed) to hot weather (vents open). Speed and Strength used reflective trim and logos for night time visibility and safety. Overall the quality of the jacket was right where I would expect it to be and I feel like this is the kind of jacket most will be pretty stoked to ride in considering how awesome it feels when you slip it on.
The Speed and Strength Hammer Down textile motorcycle jacket has an AR500 super stretch-fit frame and features removable Vault C.E. approved shoulder, elbow and spine protectors. The jacket boasts microfiber lined cuffs and reflective trim and logos for better night time visibility. For an adjustable fit, a Molded Strong Arm sleeve adjuster and Lockdown waist adjuster are included. A Speed Zip controlled ventilation system for proper air flow and belt loops for pant attachment to prevent the jacket from riding up.
