I'm all for hi vis gear..

Does Foog have a distributor in the US/Canada?

The gear looks good, I'll have to find their website. Can't seem to find a website for them, I did find foog.com but it's blocked at work, must look at it from home.

Thanks for the pics

If I were a company advertising safety gear I wouldn't use a picture of a rider in jeans and tennis shoes. (just saying)

Thanks for the link.. J'aime bien le blouson en cuir. Vous avez un grand choix chez vous. Un de ces jours ci, quand je me trouverai en France.. Je vais y penser.

"FOOG"? Is it just me, or does it seem like an acronym for "F**ck-Off Orange/Green"? ;-)

(OK, technically its more like lime green, but still)

And a rider in jeans and sneakers on the ad? That's just plain silly...

GB, I was at the Vancouver MC show last night - there's a local company called Rubber Side Down - http://rubbersidedown.ca/rsd_home I was looking for high-viz jackets too, and they had some for pretty decent price. They're based in Richmond, BC. They're going to make a custom jacket for my wife using white cordura and pink trim (of course) - the white being pretty visible at night too... cost $289. They're off the rack jackets are about $200/220. Going back today to get one of their black/jellow jackets and black pants for myself.

Wonder what the girl looks like in jeans? Otherwise, nice looking gear.
