I picked up an awesome jacket. I hate wearing leather in the heat of the summer but I am dead set on protection. I tried one of the Joe Rocket style jackets and while they function well they look ridiculous on a chubby guy on a cruiser. Found this armored hoodie at Cycle Gear and tried it out. Has some text and graphics on it I read some folks didn't like but at least it doesn't look laughable on me. Has CE armor elbow and shoulder pads plus an inner liner. Just wore it for the first time and in 70 degrees I was actually almost chilly. Wind goes through it well. This is going to be a win!! Thumbs up for this product!! (and no, I don't work for Cycle Gear or Street N' Steel LOL)
