The Bandito is killer! I have other Tobacco California riding shirts, so I already knew what I was getting into.. great fit and finish, excellent protection, awesome style, and moto shirt I can wear even in Houston heat. The Bandito takes it up a notch with the striped sleeves.. definitely an eye catcher and conversation starter! I can ride knowing I’m protected, even though I’m not planning to prove that ;)
Fits kinda snug
This jacket has been worn almost everyday since I received it. Super comfy on and off the bike. Keeps me warm but not overheated in the south Louisiana sunshine. Customer service is top notch. Fast response and easy to deal with. Worst part of all this was the wait and that's just because I'm impatient.
Shirt looks badass and fits perfectly without the D30 elbow pads, but with them, the sleeves get too tight at a slight bend (and I don't have huge arms). Consider a wider arm to account for this in the future. Otherwise, once I removed the animal's skin rectangle (she needed it more than I do, and with climate change it's a no-brainer to stop using leather when there's great moto brands using kevlar and Aramid) it's a fine, fine riding shirt!
I’ve been hesitant to buy from Tobacco, wondering if it’s worth the extra cost over other brands. It absolutely is! Very comfortable, high quality, and it actually fits right! It doesn’t billow off me, it doesn’t gap around my waist, and the sleeves are long enough to wear with low cuff gloves. The only thing keeping it from five stars is the lack of zippered outside pockets…
This jacket breaths, but not too much. The arm stripes give style and visibility. The stitching is very good, I know this jacket will last me a long time.
