These vests look great. Where can they be found within the UK? (Where'd you get yours from KTiM?)

Update on my Ogio Vest

Very happy with my vest following my 2000+ mile trip to France with Mrs KTiM. Vest carried the following gear;

Canon Ixus & spare CF cards
Canon video camera
Leatherman
Knife
Tyre gauge
Mini Maglite
Swiss Army knife
Sunglasses
Cap
First Aid kit
Wallet
2 liter Platypus bladder
Spare pair of gloves
Neck warmer
Thin pullover
Assorted small spares

All of this made the vest very heavy to pick up but once on all of the weight just dissapered. A great piece of kit - a place for everything and everything in its place!

Hey,
Thanks for all the feedback KTiM and the links Bryan.

I initially was looking for a Military LBV style vest but the ones I was running across were very expensive. I'm going to take a look at the ones from cheaper than dirt.com

I still want a vest, I think its a great idea. I have found some of the Ogio vests for $50 on ebay.

I really like the vest idea... not sure why I don't already have one!! Even though my Gold Wing provides a lot of storage, I like having my "stuff" on me and easy to acess when I need it.

Add a good flight vest to the list...

I'm thinking you must have some Swiss milatary blood in you? How was the vest at speed in the motorway, what did you pair it with, over a jacket?

Well, I had to carry all that sh*t so that there was space for all the shoes and make-up and hairdryer and stuff!!

Wore the vest over a lightweight armoured Shoei jacket. Fine at motorway speeds - didn't even know I had it on.

I just got the Ogio flight vest today, after wanting one for a long time. I thought I'd dig up this old post of mine and update it. The vest looks great, and has more pockets than I thought it would. This baby will be just the ticket for moto trips!


I also noticed Mack was the last one to post here. Makes ya think when ya see that. R.I P. dude.

Looks very good. (but I would have gotten the KTM one ) Are you going to be testing this out at the Spring Wabeno ride. Look forward to your report.

You'll see lots of ride report with it, but the spring Wabeno ride won't be one of them. I found out recently that one of my best friends is getting married that weekend and I gotta be in it.

I'll do my best to talk him out of it but I doubt I'll be successful. I was really looking forward to that ride but thats life. I will be at the Enduraid the following weekend and the Big Woods ride in the fall.

Don't worry, when I get a KTM it will probably be black so this will look OK on it. ( 950 )

That's life. I almost missed the spring ride also. My sister is getting married the following weekend. Look forward to meeting you sometime.

Don't you mean it's going to be blue (950 S). What, are you short?

Ogio

I have the OGIO version. I really like it and it gets a lot of notice from the leather vest crowd. One interesting thing is the back has some stiffening
in it which helps support your back if you adjust the fit tight. Also the "clip"
pockets are just the right size for candy bars and reading glasses, and the big pockets will hold a camera, CD player, or goggles. And, my GMRS hangs on that "D" ring very nicely.

Seems I got one for $55-$60 a while back.
Here is one for about $60.

http://www.sportskids.com/superstore...io+Flight+Vest

Pretty satisfied with mine. Used it on a long (four days on the trail) off road trip and it was good. Fits me good and I am a pretty big guy - and I wear it over armor (and sometimes a rain suit).



Has four decent cargo compartments on the back. Easy to carry a pair of sandals/shoes for when you take your boots off. One is for the water bladder (bladder not included). The grab handle on the back near your neck makes it easy to get off over snaggy armor - just pull it up over your head.



Another view. Is short enough not to get in the way . . .

Question ogio flight vest

I like the way these things look for holding some small stuff while riding and having the hydration pack in/on it as well. I usually wear a Camelback anyway.
Anyone wear one of these vests over a thicker jacket like a Motoport U.K II or a Stich? I'm wondering how well the vest fits around the armpits and if those jackets are just a bit too bulky to wear the vest over them. Thanks
