Every year I find myself pushing my "good" textile gear farther into summer and donning the mesh less often. My Olympia Stealth onesie is so convenient for summer commutes and it does have Cordura around the mesh panels and in impact areas but I know the ripstop Cordura and Sas Tec armor in my REVIT gear are better and I feel safer.
...hmm my mesh Joe Rocket jacket I wear all summer is looking a little less cool.

In the not so distant past I crash tested my Tourmaster something or another. The velcro at the wrist gave, resulting in the sleeve being pushed past my elbow. Hardy a scratch on the jacket, my elbow was another story. I'm curious how well it would have performed with a zipper/snap.
if you love your motorcycle, set it free.. if it comes back and hits you.. you highsided
