Northern RR said:By textile jacket do you mean the mesh type ones? or one of the solid fabric coats? I have one of the joe rocket balistic mesh types and I love it to death,. works great, fits well, is nice and breathable and looks okay too. Plus one of my buddies crash tested one and it held up great :thumb: which was a real suprise to me, I figured that they would blow apart pretty quick.
I'd say it depends mostly on speed. Obviously if your doing 30 or 40 KMs & dump it to avoid something, there's gonna be alot less damage than if you're doing 120 on a highway.l'timbré said:I read about one guy who wasn't so lucky with the jacket he was giving warnings to others as to not feel safe in that jacket :idunno: it went into pieces when he fell
I'm a fan of Tour Master stuff. My normal, everday riding jacket is a Cortech Sport from that company. It doesn't vent all that well, but would appear very durable, has removable armor, a waterproof membrane liner, and reflective 3M patches to help make me more conspicuous at night.lkcty99prf said:Anyone have any luck with a good textile jacket like - joe rocket-icon-agv-or any other kind ?? :idunno:
:wstupid:Chain said:I wear JR Meteor 4.0 riding britches as well, at least on days I can stand them. Hot as hell, but waterproofed with reflective piping and rain proof pocket on the front. Easy to get into and out of as well. Great for trips.

Gotcha. Thanks for the heads up guys. :thumb:MrX954 said:Ahh no but most members frown upon "stunting" pics just read the site rules:

LOL @ the photo edit above. You're a good sport. :clap:pdoyle64 said:Gotcha. Thanks for the heads up guys. :thumb:
The cans on the SV were Sudco carbon fiber. After a little research I found they were made by Hindle. Sounded great!
