Vests just go with motorcycles, sometimes called a cut, the motorcycle vest might be a riders most personal piece of motorcycle gear. The Wasteland is made from 15 oz waxed cotton canvas that gives it a leather-like feel and makes it water resistant.

This understated vest offers motorcycle safety and style. The bottom front is cropped, so it won't bunch up when in the riding position, and drops down to give you more coverage behind.

When it comes to safety the vest features a large back pocket for a D3O® back protector. With 5 additional stash pockets you won't have trouble taking those daily carry items with you.

    Amazing Vest!

    Absolute amazing fit. I also have the riding shirt, both vest and shirt in large, and it fits seamlessly over top of it. The quality is great, definitely a comfortable item that is both warm and protective.

    Awesome Wasteland Vest

    The vest fits great and its a great compliment to my other tobaccomotorwear gear. I swear you guys are going to make me go broke. I have my eye on a few more items and will make a few purchases soon. The only thing you dont have that I think would be a great seller, would be a hoodie to go along with the vest. I think it would be very cool and if the arms are kevlar lined. It would be a great addition to the amazing products that you already offer. Keep up the great work. Cedric

    Awesome vest

    Excellent. I’m 6’3” 280 lbs and the 2XL fits great. Could fit a hoody underneath but nothing bulky. It’s well designed, functional, durable and the back protector fits nicely. Could be a smidge longer but other than that it’s awesome.

    Stylish Addition to Your Protective Wardrobe

    I received the brown Wasteland vest last July and immediately paired it with the Moss Canvas California Riding Shirt 2.0 to add some back protection on my rides. It has quickly become a staple of my riding gear and my everyday wardrobe for chilly San Francisco days. On the practical side: the slot for the D3O back armor is well-positioned so that I feel wholly protected and comfortable. The large pocket on the inside-left of the vest is big enough to hold a wallet, phone, and any other random objects. The smaller inside-left pocket is good for key storage or loose change. The chest pocket on the outer-left of the vest is also a surprisingly roomy storage space. On the aesthetic side: The makers were mindful enough to tailor the proportions of the back insert so that the armor stays in place. It also does not look like there is armor inside, so you won't be walking around with a huge bulge on your back. The fit is true to size based on their chart. I am 5'6", 145 lbs with a broader chest. The small vest fits without need for adjustment, but there are well-placed buttons on the sides if you need it. Adding the California Riding Shirt 2.0 under it makes for a snug fit, but doesn't compromise the range of motion. The color is a deep brown that nicely complements the moss green of the California Riding Shirt. I'm sure it would also look awesome paired with the black, herringbone, or Territory riding shirts if you are looking to add this vest to your wardrobe. Something to keep in mind: the inside lining is not as durable as the outside canvas material. Constant wear has made some of the stuffing come out. Not a big deal, but it is more noticeable than before. I am not particularly worried about the effects on its protective capabilities, but it may be an aesthetic issue for some. This small detail in no way affects my five-star rating and enthusiastic recommendation for the Wasteland Vest!


    No Waste on the Wasteland Vest!

    Lovin' this vest so much it's become my essential motowear! Perfect for the all around riding weather in the Bay Area!

    Vest review

    It was expensive so I went back and forth on it...eventually I pulled the trigger and am very happy i did. I ordered the brown vest in large (I'm 5'8 165) it fit great - enough to wear a bulky sweatshirt under but tight enough to look good with tshirt too. Sometimes you get what you pay for and this is quality stuff. Need to get some discounts and I'll be back for a shirt...just not sure if maybe medium will be better vs the large...we shall see!



    Received my brown vest and could not believe the quality of the vest. TMC does not cut corners when producing their products. I am an extremely a happy customer. Haven't felt like this for a product in a very long time. Absolutely nothing I can complain about at all. Fit was perfect and can use for riding and or casual wear. I loved the vest so much that I wanted to order another one in black. TMC was sold out on my size. But when a product like this comes around, you use all resources to find one. And that I did through one of their other dealers. When I received my black vest, I was like a kid in a candy store. You can immediately feel the comfort. Knowing how much safer it made me feel was even better. Now I have both blk & brown as my daily rotation wear. You truly have to see and feel to believe it. I saw that the TMC California riding shirt was available in blk in my size and jumped on that as well. That will be arriving this week and MAN AM I EXCITED! I had an email conversation with Jeremy and what a freakn' pleasant chat with these guys! You talk about all around satisfaction!! I am such a satisfied customer and support this company 100%, Thank you TMC for developing such an all around tremendous product and thinking about the safety of the riders. Looking forward for more.

    I love this vest.

    The vest is sturday as hell, the canvas and color are what I wanted exactly, and it fits perfectly. I was NOT happy when I first put it on because it feels/looks short in the front. I almost exchanged it but I figured I had it so I threw it on and got on the bike and the genius of the design was immediately presented. It's shorter in the front so it doesn't fold up and bunch up on the bike! It truly is designed with motorcycle riders in mind. Also I kicked myself for not getting the backplate with it but I ordered it afterward. I got some help from the email guy to get the right size for the vest but it would have been slick to get them in the same box to use them immediately.
