Cheap suit of armor

Just ran across this today..

http://www.leatherup.com/product.asp...=A1001%2DArmor

Thought it might help someone... Don't know if it would be any good or not.

Doesn't even give the appearance that it has any rating at all..

I really liked the rear view as well...Very reptilian..

Very Kligon-esque (sp?)...

I am sure all the Trekkie riders would like it!

On a serious note I know many are firm believers in back protectors... Somthing I should consider...

Put that together with this: ...and you just might have something there.

I guess there's only one thing worse than "Fashion Biker Gear", and that's fashion biker gear that looks like it could might kinda possibly protect you, when in reality it's not CE Rated armor. Oy Vey!

I wear a ballistic jersey similar to that when I'm riding my GS off road or on the dirt bike. I can report that it crash test and rider approved
