For you motorcycle enthusiasts you understand what it feels like to be hit in the face with 60-80 mph wind force. For you Star Wars enthusiasts out there you understand the stormtroopers long-snouted ventilated face mask. Well, now the best of both worlds have combined making for something that a motorcycling Star Wars enthusiast would love to get their hands and face on: the leather stormtrooper motorcycle mask.
Although this is not the entire stormtrooper helmet, it does include the bottom half. The shape is obviously based off of the stormtroopers air ventilation. Although it only covers the bottom half of the face roughly, one rider who had worn it and taken it up to 85 mph mentioned that it does a great job at providing a little bit of wind resistance. However, the creator also points out that this is not a safety device.
As you can see from the pictures, the epic face mask is made of leather, Veg Tan leather to be exact. Designer, and creator, EpicLeather has put a magnificent amount of detail into the mask including riveted accents. The interior of the face mask is packed with foam and some suede so that it can fit with a little bit of comfort.
The best part of all of this is that the mask is not some concept or a just a piece of art, although it is stunning workmanship. No, the best part is that you can get one yourself. With the ability to order in multiple colors, the mask is available through Etsy for $199.
Even though each of these is cut with roughly the same design, each one is hand crafted making for a little variance and uniqueness to each model.
So, whether you ride a motorcycle, love Star Wars, or are a big nut about both of these, you’ll want to take into consideration what you’ll be wearing as you cruise on down the tar lathered roadway.
