The newest hoodie from Rocket World - the Ronin Hoodie - is a streamlined hoodie made with a technical 2 layer softshell fabric. It's versatile in multiple seasons; you can brush off the occasional drizzle, and it blocks chill and wind. The subtle TS-kull and Bear Paw logos are embroidered on each sleeve ontop of the Velcro loop
swatches. And 5 zippered pockets allow for any number of today's digital
music players, cell phones, energy bars or ninja stars. The hoodie is great
as a lighter weight summer riding jacket on your favorite form of 2
wheeled transportation. It has a suggested retail price of $199.99 and is now available from Rocket World.
