Shearling-lined handwarmer pockets on this = also essential!
I really like this.. a little sheepskin without going full B-3 ..
also is Aero treading a little on Eastmans turf? they've had the ELMC line for a while with some biker themed sheepskin stuff..
ELMC "Biker Flight Vest"
But at least Aero will make them in my size...
Probably aiming for thesame market, but different design concepts. ELMC is very much "late Sixties hippy biker customises old militry jacket", whereas Aero adhere very strictly to Ken's "nothing that couldn't pass for having ben designed and made pre 1959" rule. Puts me in mind more of a C3 redesigned on the Shackleton pattern. Or a shearling Shackleton, more to the point. I like it a lot.
I can see that being very handy on a chilly early autumn morning.
I like it.
I like it....but I showed this pic to my GF and she gave it a massive thumbs down. Now I know what you are thinking....who cares what the special lady thinks.....but sometimes you need a friend to help you put the brakes on a purchase that might not work......
I am just not a vest - man. If I wore a vest it would not be over my jacket - under my jacket - and only if riding
If it’s cold enough to need shearling doncha kinda need arm coverage too? I saw a picture of a similar over a double rider and it looked tre badass but seemed more functional for having your picture taken in that Living in.
I've seen a few photos from the 60's or so of motorcyclists wearing B-2's without sleeves over leather or denim. Most of the pics were taken in the UK so that makes sense, I guess.
I do like it, but at the same time, if I needed warmth I'd personally just wear a leather jacket instead. Would this be layered under a leather jacket?
So what about this vest did she not like? In milder weather, say 40s to lower 60s, a vest is all I need. I have maybe 10 or 15 of them. Plus, I layer a vest under my MC jacket when riding if the temps are 50 to 65. I like the warmth, extra pockets and freedom of movement a vest provides as a stand alone garment.
I wear my Eastman on as an under layer sometimes, but not often, it works very well.
I suppose i was imagining it too bulky to fit under a jacket. Layering is good. Double leather.....maybe....? I can’t even bring myself to do double denim.
The vest is very similar to the Iron Heart x Simmons Bilt C3.

This is really cool!!!
Oh, and they also seem to have this one, too. I think it's something new? I don't recall seeing it before though I don't often venture into the army section of the site.
Cool. I like this one as well. Shearling appears to be a bit thicker than the others. Doesn't appear to have hand warmers, though.
