Viking Cycle - Warlock Jacket Review - Part 1.

Postby MadKaw » Wed Aug 14, 2019 12:07 pm

I Received an e-mail from Bryan at Viking Cycle a couple of weeks ago and he asked me if I would like to review one of their jackets, obviously I said "I'd love too".. :-)
I hadn't heard of Viking Cycle before so I checked out their web site and had a look through their products. They have some nice looking gear at very reasonable prices and some discounts happening atm.
They are a US based company but have a distribution centre near the home of motorsport in NSW, yes - Eastern Creek.

The jacket they sent me is a Warlock Silver Mesh lightweight summer jacket - https://au.vikingcycle.com/collections/ ... et-for-men

The jacket arrived this morning, less than a week from my e-mail from Bryan, so a first tick for fast delivery.
Packaged in a box, not loose or in soft bag, so another tick.

Had a quick look at it and it has some nice features, its very light, has plenty of pockets, a zip out liner, headphone holes and plastic guides for cables and has armour in the right places.
My only initial concern is the armour in the shoulders and elbows is a bit on the thin size compared to my other jackets, but I guess that's the trade off for a very light weight summer jacket.
I will do a comparison with the Joe Rocket summer jacket we have later.

That aside it fits well, is VERY comfortable and looks pretty good.

More pics and further review to come - when it warms up.. :-)

BTW - Viking Cycle are having a winter sale ATM with 15% of - or 17% if you sign up with your e-mail. Free delivery in Aus too.!
Make sure you mention KSRC if you contact them....
