Couple quick snap shots , sorry but taking pics in a mirror never do come out good ...one thing i can say is that this is one of the most comfortable protective vests you will ever wear.

I've thought about getting a vest to ride with on super hot days, but I can't get past the whole "exposed elbows and shoulders" thing. Eventually I'll have to get something reflective to ride my bike onto base, but that's pretty rare these days, mostly only when I have to pick up friends at the train station, and I don't see me doing that on a bike

It's really meant to be worn under your riding jacket (/leathers) , personally i would never ride with just the vest on but it sure beats the hell out of that piece of foam in your jacket they call a back protector (better than nothing but still a joke)

RMB ...we'll se how it goes .

Yes , and to be fair if you go riding without removing all of the sand first , well you're dumb enough to deserve it but i still think it's a good way to scrub your new tires .

That's smart putting some coin into gear.

"I really want some cheap chinese exhaust knockoffs for $250 -- who cares about riding gear... I want my bike to sound rarsome!"

I use the knox aegis back protecor and their chest guard under my leathers on track days. Best investment I made to my safety gear. Yes, it's hot as hell but I ride better knowing I'm wearing proper protective gear.
