Top notch product
Posted by Les N. on 8th Jun 2017
I purchase this hoodie after looking for something with Kevlar and being unsuccessful. GoGo Gear LA was one of the only companies that had a hoodie with this type of protection.
The hoodie arrived today after just over a week from order date, into Canada. I am so very impressed by the hoodie and the quality of the jacket. It not only looks as great as on the website but the fit is perfect. I am 6'3" and weigh 220lbs. with long arms. The sizing was accurate and the arm length was spot on ( the one thing I was really worried about). The jacket fits very well and all the removable armour is securely in the appropriate positions.
I look forward to many hours of riding with this hoodie.
Thanks GoGo Gear LA !!
UK resident - blown away by this hoodie
Posted by Ian on 4th Oct 2016
I am extremely happy and impressed. The quality in construction and materials is top notch. I am quiet a large guy so where I usually buy a 2xl in my Furygan jackets I only needed and XL in these. It's not tight but it's not loose and baggy either, it was just right. The bottom is long and it's elasticated which is very strong. It keeps the hoodie firmly against you when riding and makes the overall feel very comfortable. The back protector is noticeable due to its size and coverage which may put some off but I like it way better the D30 level 1 because it has the coverage. Shoulders and elbows are well covered. As before the hoodie isn't too loose so these protectors are nicely seated against your arms without the need to adjust. The hoodie is thick, warm and great to ride in around town and to work. My only wish it they come in different colours. I would definitely buy another if they did. Great product, just what I was looking for. I look forward to having ore quality gear from you.
Drumroll please, it's perfect! :)
Posted by Chris on 29th Jun 2016
Arlene, The sweatshirt arrived today... and... (drumroll, please) it's perfect! You were right on with your sizing advice. It's snug around the waist (as it should be to keep from blowing around) but loose enough everywhere else to be downright comfortable (and fit just about like the sweatshirts I'm used to). I imagine a larger size would've been bordering on too loose, especially as the elbow protectors are concerned. What's more, while I expected the sweatshirt to be well made, seeing it in person really makes it clear what spectacular attention to quality you guys have. I really need to thank you again for being so helpful and reassuring throughout this process and in general for being such a friendly and approachable person, which itself seems rare sometimes. I couldn't be happier with any part of this transaction. I'll definitely be bragging on you guys from now on--I'll send whoever I can your way, and I'll look for any opportunity I can find to buy something from you guys again (that protective base layer is starting to look pretty good...). Thank you!

Much like many internet shoppers, I'm always hesitant to purchase because of sizing doubts. I'll start off by saying I'm 5'9" and 160 lbs. with a 37" chest and I purchased a small. I'm perfectly happy with the fit. It's appropriately long in both the arms and torso and the armor is placed very accurately on my shoulders and elbows. The armor fits snugly into their respective pockets and stays put. The hood is a little short but I'll hardly ever be using it with my helmet on most of the time anyway.
Overall, the hoodie is relatively heavy and constructed very well. I have no doubts about its durability and expect it to last for quite a long time.
There are only two real negatives I can conjure up in reviewing this product. The first is that the zipper is reversed, as if it was made for a lefty. This was actually the first time I realized that zippers had always been on the opposite side of every garment I've worn all of my life. This is hardly a negative though really, it just felt funny at first. The second is that the back armor, although quite light, is still heavy enough to weigh down the back of the hoodie slightly. When wearing it, I can feel the neck creep upwards a little bit in the front, but it's certainly tolerable. This is the first protective hoodie I've owned. I suspect other similar armored hoodies suffer the same minor inconvenience with no real additional weight in the front to balance out the armor in the back.
Beyond those two downsides though, everything about this hoodie is overwhelmingly positive and exceeded my expectations. Do not let those two things deter you from purchasing this product. I simply felt the need to include those minor items as to make it clear that this is an unbiased review. I'd highly recommend this product to someone else, and as a matter of fact, I already have! You'll be hard-pressed to to find a comparable deal, armor included.

Received my hoodie yesterday and was very impressed by the quality of this protective garment. The armor is great, including a substantial back protector. It is extremely comfortable as a normal hoodie would be and true to size. Pockets and zippers are high quality and deep. Only suggestions would be some reflective piping on the back and a second interior pocket. The Kevlar lining sets this product apart from other similar motorcycle/scooter protective gear. Very happy with my purchase and impressed with the very speedy delivery to Toronto Canada.
Top Quality and fast
Posted by APK on 29th May 2015
I am amazed. I ordered a 3xl hoodie on Friday before a Bank Holiday. The hoodie was sent out from LA on Tuesday and it arrived with me in the UK on Friday. Outstanding customer service. Thank you.
The fabric feels good quality. The protection pieces are very good for the price and the fit is excellent (thank you Arlene for your sizing advice). The hood feels large enough to put over a helmet. Not sure why you would want to but hey, why not!. The arms are plenty long enough for full stretch and the length of the body is good too.
The 350gsm Kevlar should protect me too if it comes to it.

Hi, I'm just sending this to say thank you for developing such a fantastic product! Ive been wearing your kevlar hoodie for nearly a year and a few weeks ago I hit a kangaroo at about 80Kms. My jeans, shoes and gloves were ruined but hoodie easily survived with a few small tears. So, thanks again.

I am a MSF riding instructor and riding to the range and then continuing to wear the hoodie is very versatile. I have received many requests for info so I hope the orders are flowing in :). The hoodies are an excellent product and I am more pleased than my expectations when I placed the order.

Love the hoodie. Well made with great armor where you need it. I love how the armor stays in place. It allows me to wear my club jacket over it and the contrasting red lining is slick. Highly recommended.
Armored Hoodie Genius!
Posted by Ryan on 20th Jun 2013
Awesome design concept! I have been looking for one of these for years! you would think it would be an obvious concept. I like the simplicity of it! At the price point if there were more colors I would buy one of each... I commute regularly 60kms one way and in a cool 12C morning weather and I can wear the hoodie in the morning with minimal discomfort and have a nice light hoodie for the ride home!
The obvious suggestions to expand this product. more pockets on the inside. larger zipper pockets on the inside. a possible light / windproof zipout remove-able liner even if it was a vest... possible thumb loops on the sleeves... All in all a great product!! I will stay tuned for more gear.

Needed a hooded jacket to wear over my body armour and to keep me warm on my bike during my long rides. This jacket is perfect, heavy duty quality material, snug fit and doesn't flap about at speeds well over 100mph. Perfect for our unpredictable English weather thrilled to bits with it...cheers

Mens Kevlar Hoodie
Posted by Steve on 14th Jun 2013
Just received my hoodie, it is just as described, good quality, very good fit. It should keep out the cold, which I need with a British summer! Just a word of warning to anyone buying in England, the prices we see on the Website are meant to be in sterling not dollars, so the price is £86 and you will have to pay import duties of around £10 before your parcel is delivered. Arlene has been a fantastic help with sizes and delivery queries, Many thanks.
safe,good looking Hoddie

im 180 cm and 90 kg,,, and bought a large after i spook to Arlene,,, by the way thanks for quick repons,,, the size was good but it is little bit tight in the arms with the elbow armour inside ,,, a perfect buy,,, thanks Arlene and Go Go gear,,
Functionally perfect, easy to use, high quality, soft
Posted by Karl Morgan on 22nd May 2013
I had read other reviews so I pretty much knew what I was getting with this hoodie. After using it for the past few weeks I have noted the following:
1. Well made with quality materials
2. Fitment is excellent with just enough snug in the right places to keep the armor secure.
3. I can see myself wearing this when not cycling
4. Doesn't look like a motorcycle jacket, it looks comfortable (it is comfortable)
5. Can't really tell that it has elbow, shoulder, and back armor
6. I like the fact that there is no visible big logo or name branding like other vendors tend to use
7. Received personal attention and assistance from Arlene during purchase
8. My wife bought one and it fit her perfectly, same level of quality
9. Not expensive, GoGo could easily charge more for this
10. Makes riding safer an easy option
Posted by Luis Font on 9th May 2013
Just received yesterday my Kevlar Hoodie.
The fastest delivery I ever seen. Only six days to cross the Atlantic Ocean.
I was in doubt with the correct size but help questions were fast answered and it is the right size for me.
It looks great and fit better.
I will write a full review for my blog as soon as posible.
Sturdy and safe
Posted by Unknown on 2nd May 2013
The Kevlar Hoodie is a great piece of gear! As soon as it's zipped up, you'll already feel safer. Only downside, when riding at lower speeds in the city and with the heat from the motorcyle, you'll get really hot in no time. I highly recommand the hoodie for the highway, a bit less for short rides from A to B in your neighborhood.

Great quality Jacket. Heavy duty material. Fast Shipping, all around A+!!
YOU MAKE ME PROUD TO BE A FELLOW ANGELINO
Posted by Andyinthecityofangels on 20th Apr 2013
Arlene, I must say that I couldn't wait to do this review...You deserve it!!! I have been doing business via internet since 1998. I spend thousands of dollars every month on my business and personal purchases. I have NEVER been more pleasantly surprised doing business with someone. I sent Arlene an email inquiry on Saturday afternoon expecting a brief response if lucky, by Monday morning. BAM!! 5 minutes later Arlene responds with a brutally honest answer to a tough question I sent her regarding her product. I immediately wanted to make a purchase from her to reward her for being a such an honest, caring, thoughtful and respectful human being, the likes of which, believe me, are very few and far between. I told her so, and made the purchase of the hoodie and she was just delighted and told me so. Well, I ordered on Saturday afternoon, and got a tracking number the same day and the garment arrived on Monday. WOW!!! But, now we get to the good part. First off let me say that I am very concerned about my safety on the motorcycle. I do not want to get hurt in any way and will spend my last dime to be properly protected. This is the ONLY hoodie I found to have the Kevlar as well as the armor. So many times I want to run out for a quick ride, throw on a regular hoodie and drive unprotected. WRONG, WRONG, WRONG! And I never fully enjoy the ride because of the fear of being unprotected nagging me in the back of my head. But, I'm in a hurry, right, and leather is often too heavy, stiff, hot and uncomfortable here in L.A. Well that is a problem of the past now. The minute I put on this hoodie my jaw dropped. This garment is wonderful in so many ways. I own many hoodies, I love them, but I don't have any other hoodie that fits and feels like this one. The minute you put it on, you know you are protected, you can feel it. But then the fit, it stretches and molds itself to your body. It hugs your waist and gives gently where necessary. It is the most comfortable hoodie I have ever worn. It's like being wrapped and snuggled into your favorite blanket, but you are able to be walking around in it. It's just wonderful. I just love it. I can't wait because Arlene said they are trying to get more colors and I will be buying them as soon as they are available. Well, I'm throwing on your hoodie now because I am off to Zuma on the bike for a walk on the beach this beautiful Saturday morning. I am so pleased to have met Arlene and GOGO Gear and her hoodie, and I wish her all the best. You're the greatest Arlene!!!! It doesn't get any better than this. Thank you so much, and please keep me posted on the colors, I want to buy all my hoodies here from now on!!!!
A New Good-looking, Armored "Hoody" for Riding
Posted by karlu on 10th Apr 2013
Just got the Kevlar reinforced black hoody day before yesterday...can't wait to try it out. The black, black cotton outside with red interior makes a really good looking piece, and the zippered pockets and front closure are good as well. I ordered a 2XL. which is a size larger than normal, and it fits fine...all the armor is where it's supposed to be. This will be great for riding the "dawn patrol" here in New Mexico during the summer when the high temperatures preclude later rides unless absolutely necessary. Thanks much, GoGoGear!
A New Piece of Armored Riding Gear
Posted by Karl Utrecht on 9th Apr 2013
Although I have 3 other armored jackets, I felt this hoody would offer me a broader use thru the more moderate temperatures. What a good surprise when I got it...good quality outside, and the red lining with the armor finishes the hoody off beautifully. Zippered pockets are great, as is the full zippered front opening. Thank you, GoGoGear!
Posted by Ryan on 2nd Apr 2013
I was looking for something that I could casually wear as well as make into a 'club' jacket. The material makes it good for patches. everything is well made. It's fairly warm, but with the vents open should make a decent enough jacket for all but the hottest weather.
I would like to replace the back pad with something thinner, but that's about the only nitpick I can come up with
Exactly what I wanted!
Posted by DJ Maginity on 24th Mar 2013
Ok, so I was looking for some bike armor that I could wear with any of my warm, non-motorcycle jackets. It's been colder this year and I was tired if my perforated leather NOT keeping me warm enough. (not a good choice if there are wide temperature variations in your area and you plan to be out after dark.)
I'd heard about armored hoodies somewhere and I looked them up.
Came across the GoGoGear Kevlar Hoodie and it seemed exactly what I was looking for! Yay!
(I did find another brand but it just HAD to have the company's logo all over it..Grrrr!)
Thankfully, this is not the case with the GoGoGear Hoodie! It's a clean and simple Black hoodie with a cool red liner! Nice. It's made VERY well with very nice, substantial material. Feels soft and comfy right out of the box! And the foam armor while adequate, isnt obtrusive. Comfortable, even with the armor installed and used under another jacket. The liner is a semi-slippery nylon making it easy to pull on. The zipper is high quality, of the thick-toothed, plastic variety and works easily. Here's some good thinking, the front "handwarmer" pockets zip closed! No losing stuff on the freeway, Smart! I havent had a chance to use the little vents, but they're in the right place and the red lining is a nice touch. I'm 6ft 165lbs. With broad shoulders and orangutan arms And the large fits me perfectly. The sleeves are long enough and the cuffs are thick and snug. As is the waistband. The single, inside pocket is helpful and secure, though, I would've put one on the other side as well.
Which is, pretty much, the ONLY negative thing I can say about the whole jacket!
All said, this is the highest quality armored hoodie I could find and exactly what I hoped it would be. And the best part? IT'S ONLY $129.00! This is one of the best deals in all of motorcycling. I mean it. Get one, you'll love it.
Excellent product, excellent service.
Posted by Carl G, UK on 24th Mar 2013
I'd been after a good quality hoodie for a while and figured it would be worth the hassle of ordering from the US thanks to all of the good reviews this one had.
In fact this turned into one of the best internet shopping experiences I've ever had, and even the delivery across the Atlantic was frankly quicker than some I've had from local businesses! The hoodie itself is well made and I'm particularly impressed with the comfort of the shoulder and elbow armour.
Credit to Arlene for a quality product and the attention that ensured it fits perfectly.
I wasn't looking for it but I'm glad I found it.
Posted by B. Rosenberg on 19th Feb 2013
I was in SFMoto in San Francisco looking for a new set of boots. The sales guy and I were talking about hatred of constricting gear and he showed me the GoGo armored hoodie. HOT damn. This just fit my personality to the letter. It fits great (XL for my 225lb, 5'11" frame) and works really nice underneath my Triumph Racing Eisenhower jacket. I've worn it a few times now and folks seem to dig it when I tell them it's a kevlar lined armored hoodie.
All in all .. one of the best pieces of "gear" I've bought in a while. I would totally recommend this to anyone who wants protection but doesn't want to be stifled in their gear.
Great piece if kit

Great jacket, fits perfect, more than I expected
Posted by Chad Baldwin on 17th Feb 2013
I love this jacket so far. I've only had a chance to use it a few times since the weather in Southern Cali is a bit cold right now and this is more of a summer jacket.
The jacket fits perfectly. And it feels like very good quality. It was definitely more than I was expecting. I feel confident wearing this out on the road.
I'm 6'0", ~180lbs and average/athletic build with long arms. I bought a medium and it fits perfect. I was expecting the arms to be too short.
I can't count how many of my friends have called me a squid cause they think I'm wearing a normal sweatshirt! No one I have asked has been able to tell it's a motorcycle jacket, which is the whole reason I bought it!!
Great product! I've actually considered buying a second one to take when I go snowboarding. Why not have the extra protection, right?
Posted by Mauger on 13th Feb 2013
At 6 feet 230 pounds, I found the XXL to be a perfect fit. I removed the back armor because it was uncomfortable. I paired this with a leather vest and it is a good look. The other arm and shoulder armor are hardly noticeable, which was much appreciated. I almost always pull out the armor because it annoys me. I put some zipper lube on immediately based on other reviews, and so far it seems fine. Not smooth but fine. I am being careful with it. My new #1. I would say that for the price, it should be this good. If I ripped this one, I would buy another one tomorrow.

Protection, Without Looking Like a Biker....
Posted by Andrew on 15th Nov 2012
I bought the GoGo Gear hoodie as a great alternative to my riding jackets. Sometimes doing errands or shopping, I don't want to look like I just got off my bike.
The hoodie itself is very well made, and the armor seems to fit well and is very inconspicuous, with the exception of the backpad. While I hope to never use it, the armor is as substantial as that of any jacket I own.
I do have an issue with the zipper. It's very small, and difficult to get started. I wish this hoodie had a more substantial zipper. Once started, it works OK, but aligning it to mesh and start it is a real pain.
I ordered the medium, as I'm 5'9", 185 lbs, and a bit stocky. While it fits snugly, I may give this medium to my son, and opt for a large.
All in all, I'm pretty pleased with the hoodie. While the zipper is a small issue, the rest of the jacket is well made, and no doubt, would provide great protection in a fall.
And now, I can walk into the grocery store without looking like a Power Ranger...
Reply from Arlene at GoGo Gear - Thank you Andrew, we really appreciate the feedback! All of the zippers on the jacket are standard YKK which are used in all motorcycle jackets. I think what you're experiencing with the zipper is that it zips on the opposite side of how a lot of guy's jackets zip and as a result may create some challenges in zipping up the jacket. We changed the side of the zipper for all future production so this issue will probably go away with that change. Thanks so much! Glad you're enjoying it! Arlene
Good for summer!
Posted by Chia on 8th Nov 2012
I bought this hoodie for my boyfriend and I to share, so I had to go up a size than I would normally buy! We bought an XS if I'm not mistaken (we are both small!). It fits my boyfriend great although a bit tight around the waist (good excuse to tell him to trim down that beer belly!) and on me it's a little large. However, I still find it the best thing to wear on a hot summer's day. While riding it can still get a little chilly when the wind is cold (as is often the case in Switzerland, i have found), so I was wearing this for temperatures above 18C. For my boyfriend the temperature was ok even for colder rides because he's sitting behind me on my Vespa and is blocked from most wind! Also since it's a little large on me, the pads don't sit in the right places, but on my boyfriend they fit well. It might be useful to also post shoulder length sizes since this would affect where the pads sit! I gave it 4 stars because I would prefer this to be a little longer... I wear low-cut jeans (even my kevlar ones) so my only negative point would be that the hoodie waist rides up above my jeans waist which makes the ride a little cold. If you release another colour I might get an XXS that would actually fit me and not compromise on size by sharing! :) Thanks for a really innovative product that I can wear all summer!

I just wanted to say thanks again and we LOVE your hoodies! I just bought another one and my mother and father in law are both going to be purchasing them. I am a member of a local scooter club and a BMW motorcycle club and the scooter club is having a rally very soon. I'm going to try and show them off to as many people as possible. It's excellent quality and the fact that you use kevlar AND armor AND it looks good AND it is actually comfortable is just amazing! Thanks again!

This hoodie was just what I was looking for! Something protective enough to wear for city riding yet not scream hardcore sportbiker. The fitment is perfect, I'm 5'8" 155lb and a Medium fits just right. Shipping was reasonable and quick considering I live in Hawaii! Thanks Arlene!

Just picking it out the box, I knew this was serious armor. Super heavy (in a good way,) super soft, and very well made. I can't believe I've been riding in the cool without one! I'm looking forward to living in it this fall!
I'm 6foot, nothing and a fit 175lb... I prolly could have opted for the medium, as the large is a bit swimmy. Not cumbersome by any means, and it'll allow for layering underneath. The length is perfect, in both the arms and waist.
Now to find a chainmail vest.......

I am 5'8", 145lbs, 36" waist in riding position, and have 23" long arms (wrist to top of shoulder). I ended up going with the Medium sweatshirt. The arms on the small were just too short, especially in forward riding position. The Med fits much better and the pads line up much better also. This jacket is surprisingly warm. It's great for riding at night in So Ca, but a little warm during our summer days. The black is typically drab, but that makes it universal to any of my shoes and helmets. Would recommend to a friend.

The furthest traveled Hoodie made it's maiden voyage on a chilly winter evening down here in Auckland, New Zealand yesterday evening - as we Kiwis say, it is "Sweet As !"
Comfy, Cozy, Safe!

I heart my new GoGo Hoodie! If you're about to order one for yourself, follow their directions and go by your chest size. Perfect fit! The material is thick and soft and looks good on everyone!
I love my new armored hoodie!

It's a real hoodie! An actually fleece hoodie...but with ARMOR. I can't believe how soft and comfortable it is! It doesn't even look like a riding jacket. This thing is PERFECT. Love it!
Note from Arlene at GoGo Gear: and don't forget it has Kevlar in it!!!
All my friends are gonna want one!

My hoodie just arrived this week. It's heavy fleece on the outside with deep zippered hand pockets and soft breathable lining inside. The armor is inside velcro pockets. I feel comfortable and safe in it. And it's cute! Keep up the good work and bring us scooter girls and guys more great products like this! Thanks, Arlene and GoGo Gear!"
