Riders beware... Check your gear out.

I was checking out some new gear and came across a forum that showed a rider who had purchaced an Aerostich jacket and found that it didn't protect him as much as he would have thought.

So here is a link that most of the Police officers are going to.

I too will be getting one here next week.
Don't be fooled by all the hype on "Bullistic" stuff and companies rename nylon to make it sound better than it is.
The main point is.... Some, if amost all, will melt to you and will be more harmful than if you would have just worn a t-shirt (but I wouldn't recommend either), just be careful of what you buy and make sure you understand what the fabric will do in the event that you may go down.
Be safe....

Life is a limited time offer, ride often.
