Why wear a vest if your not in a club

My wife keeps telling me I need a vest. Im like why do I need a vest if Im not in a club? I honestly don't see the point other then I would look super cool wearing one. Do you wear a vest even if your not in a club and why? Whats the point?

That pretty much sums it up right there.

I dont wear one but I see plenty who do. Some do it for the cool factor, but in reality, they are designed to keep the core warm and protected, plus extra pockets to hide or store things for those that don't have on bike storage.

Hmmmm, if'n I was to guess....I'd guess that 95% of riders with vests on wear them cause they think it makes them look cool. Even I think the right guy with the right vest looks cool. Hell, if I looked cool with one I'd get one. Unfortunately in reality....I'd just look like a older fat white guy with a vest on wandering around the parking lot looking for my goldwing.

I used to be cool......but that's a story for another time.

Pockets and warmth are about right. Looking cool is always helpful

Because I am a cowboy. Just looked in my closet and have 9 with varying degrees of leather and shades from black to tan. 3 have conceal carry pockets. I also have an assortment of cowboy boots that I would never wear riding.

I don't wear a vest as riding gear but if I did it would be to keep the t-shirt from flapping around and irritating my skin nerves. I prefer to wear armored jackets when I ride.

I wear a black one of these: Kakadu Kelly vest. It securely holds a firearm on each side, plus room for magazines. Doesn't print... well the Desert Eagle is obvious. I also like a vest for the pockets. This one also has a zippered pocket inside for my wallet. Zips up and functions quite well.
