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.
This is exactly what I have been considering recently. Seems to be the most safe option.

I like the idea of the Klim Overland Jacket [ link ] however I think the forcefield armor shirt will be definitely safer in the case of a crash.

(I guess the title of this thread should be changed to "The Search for a Solid Safe $600 3 season Jacket")
