I just picked my Victory Tour Jacket up today from my local Vic Dealer MOMs. I walked by it on the rack because I saw the $360 price tag. Then I remembered it was 60% off on the Victory Site. They gave it to me for the $144. What a great jacket! Nice zip out liner, lots of pockets, vented and waterproof. If you are looking for a nice riding jacket I would give this one a close look.

Good find, if I was in the market for a jacket I'd jump on this one in a second.

When i bought my Gunner my dealer threw one in no charge... Only wore it once, I felt like a Boy Racer :nerd what with all the Victory branding on it. I much prefer warring my Unbranded leather jacket of 20 + years... Just me but if i'm going to advertise a product they should be paying me.

I like it but can't get it for my fat ass. Only goes up to 2XL and those are sold out. Maybe I can use a pair of jackets as chaps lol

I put on 8K miles this year in Massachusetts. I Like the fact that it has the removable liner and vents. The other reason I bought it was that it didn't have much branding. Only a small Vic Logo on the top back (I usually wear my club denim vest when rideing, so it will be covered) and very subtle grey logos on the shoulders. The logo on the front is on a removable insulated neck and chin cover.

I rode HDs for 25 years and NEVER bought a branded jacket. I gave up on leather about 10 years ago and have been wearing textile jackets since. I finally had to retire my Tourmaster Raven, all black, no branding. It was pretty faded.

I couldn't pass up the great deal.

I think the fact Vic clothing seems to run small is because most of it is made in CHINA , and those people are very small because they only eat Rice and Cats . Their idea of a 4X is a toddlers medium here .....

I bought a large which was a little snug in the arms and in the belly (I'll reduce the belly after the new year). But I remove the armor and it helped out a bit. If somebody had really muscular arms this jacket would be ridiculously tight.

It was made in Vietnam, you were close.

I guess I'm old school. I go out of my way, and usually pay a little more, but I buy Made In The USA.
I also go out of my way, but Vanson in Fall River, MA doesn't make textile jackets worth buying, plus I thing they are even making them over seas. I spent $400 for my last leather that was made in America from Walter Dyer in Framingham, MA. I only drive GMs, wont even take a foreign car as a rental.


In a nut shell it's a nice jacket.
