When talking about porsche or ferrari you are talking about exotic sports cars, those come in loud look at me colors. You look at high end bmws, mercedes, and audis, your choices are grey and black. Klim only recently finally added the hi-viz option. I believe it was last year when it came out? Clover does offer hi-vis, but when you go to their site and select hi-vis color scheme try and find one thats in stock. As for richa and macna i never heard of them but willing to bet same thing as the clover unless its made to order.

Macna is a Dutch brand that we (Twisted Throttle) are bringing into North America now. http://www.twistedthrottle.com/brand...oduct_type=526

It is sold in 70 countries and counting. We do have a selection of hi-viz colors and they are selling better and better all of the time. People are riding more and taking visibility seriously. One thing that Macna does is build all of their gear to incorporate a hi-viz vest that does not have to be removed to take the jackets off. The accessory is called the Vision Vest.





The Vision Vest buckles in the front and zips into the back of the jacket. This way you can wear it when you feel the need and stow it when not needed.

PS - Check out the Geo2 in the "Night Eye" color. All of the gray fields are retroreflective.

Spidi Hi-Viz

Thank you Dragos for you well-done work, we are trying to get you full membership to our design dept!
And thanks everybody for your suggestions about high visibility motorcycle clothing. Well, as you maybe are aware, Spidi has been the first company to hit the market with hi-viz clothing, couple of years ago, with some milestones such as the H1 Life Vest (year 2007).
Spidi Hi-Viz range is now more than complete, from Rain suits to H2Out waterproof jackets to small and useful accessories such as Stripes and CE certified vests.

And of course our high-visibility motorcycle Airbag:




Thanks,

That vest is nice, but I still prefer the "built-in" approach like in your linked Voyager H2OUT.

Thanks for the info.

Dragos,

I agree: Voyager H2 is my suggestion too.





And don't even forget the new Voyager 3!

Hi Matteo
The jacket did great. I did however not use the Spidi drinking system but used my own Camelbak with more volume. We stayed out for 3 weeks and had all kinds of weather. Specially Finland was VERY hot (33 degrees) and i was fond of the ventilation-system.
The rain protection is however VERY warm in the summertime. We had severe rain and 15-16 degrees ... and using your system with the 2 layers inside u get rather warm when going off road/gravel-roads where u stand up/work a lot.
Very happy with the jacket - but going for this one next time i think :)
Hi Tait
The jacket itself is not really 110% waterproof. But they made it in 3 detachable 3 layers, and if u use the middle layer (rain jacket/rubber-like) its waterproof.
I think the jacket is too expensive, since u dont always use alle the layers. I am however very fond of it. It's a great allround jacket - even in the summertime in finland with around 30 degres celsius :) You can easilly do with one of the cheaper jackets - i woould prpably go for this instead if i was buying a new one:

Hi Matteo,
Couple questions:
What is the best way to clean the fabric on the ergo exp 365?
What is the best way to patch a hole? Had an off in the dirt @ 20mph and the external 3 layers got a hole where the bottom of the elbow armor resides, I'm guessing due to impact from edge of protector against fabric. I guess I should tighten the forearm straps a bit as I got a nasty rugburn/bruise from armor shifting on impact I think.
Have only had one reply regarding the level 2 back armor, can you get me an update?

Thanks
Matt

Dear Wizz,
it just depends on what kind of stain you have to clean off your Ergo 365 Pro Expedition.
If it's a normal wash, using a brush and some mild soap would work perfectly. Remeber to rinse with cold water. Anyway, if read at the booklet coming with the jacket, you'll find all the washing information you need. It is also written on the internal tags.
About patching the hole, it's really a matter of what kind of hole it its. Can you please send a photo to infoservice@spidi.com. This way we can provide you better informations on how to proceed.

Moreover, I'll be asking about your Warrior Back protector level 2.


Thanks,

Hello Matteo,
I have heard no response in regards to back protector or how to fix my jacket. This is the third email I have sent in the last two weeks with no response whataoever. I really like the jacket but the customer service is making me rethink using spidi as my choice for quality gear. Hopefully this is not typicall and I am being ignored on accident. I really would like to get these issues resolved without this hassle.
Thanks
Matt

Hi, I can't tell from your webpage but does the Back Warrior EVO Inside fit these jackets?

1) The Multitech Armour

2) One Leather Jacket

Hi ConfigurationSpace,
no, the Back Warrior EVO does not fit inside the ONE Leather Jacket and the Multitech Armor.

Have you seen the Defender Armor with Level 2 back protector?
