safety

Safety being a concern I would definitely recommend upgrading the armor in any jacket you go with. We.ve brought in Forcefield armor just for this reason. I've found most jackets in the $300 range just don't have adequate armor protection. An option a few of my customers have gone with is the Forcefield Pro Shirt and Klim Traverse jacket. This provides a decent street set up then for offroad days when its really hot they wear the Frocefield shirt and a jersey instead of the Traverse jacket. Forcefield also makes fantastic replacement armor that comes in varying sizes so it will fit into most jackets.

If it was Cordura I would have probably already bought a Rev'It
