Strait Jacket by Viking Mfg.(c. 1990) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
When I first received this jacket I asked my wife to strap it on. Then I got paranoid that she was going to leave me and go shopping whilst I was still locked in! Very realistic, very examinable, and you can still escape with little practice. The skill in this effect, like so many others, is selling it to the audience. But this is an easy sell!
Effect: VIKING’S STRAIT JACKETS ARE THE FINEST-GUARANTEED! NEVER SETTLE FOR SECOND BEST.
THERE ARE OTHER STRAIT JACKETS ON THE MARKET; (made in China, etc.) but there are no other Strait jackets on the market with our realistic look!
Ever since Houdini made the Strait Jacket Escape famous, it has been a success where ever performed.
All our Strait Jackets are made of soft heavy cotton canvas with leather-like trim and 100% leather belting which gives it an air of authenticity and makes it appear the formidable challenge that it is. We have engineered our jackets to allow the magician-escape artist flexibility and ease, yet, it appears to present an impossible task.
Our Jackets can be used by anyone weighing 110 to 250 lbs., from slight build to stocky build (within those weight limits), and up to six feet tall. They are rugged and will give years of service. This is one escape everybody likes to see.
Packs small and plays big. And as usual, you receive Viking’s guarantee of quality at a reasonable price.
Available in natural canvas only, with brown leatherette trim. . We are now using ‘distressed’ leatherette which adds greatly to the authenticity.
As you can see by our junior Escape Artist (see additional photos), we can make our jackets in any size and any color trim. Inquire. Most custom work add $45.00
*The photo shows the jacket as being made of white material but it is actually beige, which looks better and stays cleaner than white.
Approx. Price: $225.00 (2001) ***Notice: I am not a dealer and this item is not for sale on this site. It maybe available in the links below or at our sister site: qualitymagicsales.com, but not from here so please do not ask.
