Whats the ATG of ATGATT?

Some preach it, some scoff, but what is it?

Opinions seem to vary wildly, what one rider considers ATGATT another may consider it totally inadequate. Does gear have to be motorcycle specific to qualify as gear? Does what and how a rider rides change what is adequate protection?


One piece leathers, spine protector, armored leather gloves, armored racing boots, FF helmet, neck brace?

Padded textile one piece or jacket & pants, reinforced riding gloves, riding boots, modular helmet?

Textile riding jacket, textile gloves, reinforced jeans, riding boots, FF helmet?

Leather jacket, leather chaps, leather gloves, engineer boots, 3/4 helmet?

Textile riding jacket, work gloves, steel toe work boots, jeans, modular helmet?
