Following on the "wife beater" thread. I'd heard on here about the company "New Enough" for buying protective gear and have to say, they are great. I bought a Joe Rocket jacket from them for my son (on E bay). They acknowledged the transaction immediately (on a weekend) and very promptly shipped the jacket. A very nice jacket it is too... Textile with armor in the elbows, shoulders and back. add to that heavy leather "outer armor" in the same places along with hard "cups" over that on the shoulders. Double zipper closure, zippered sleeve cuffs, take ups on the arms, zippered vents on the arms and exhaust in the back. Al the piping is reflective along with a large panel on back and the "Joe Rocket" emblems on the shoulders. The jacket is a hi-vis yellow with black trim. My son says it is cool enough while we are moving and loves the jacket. He is 11 and likes "cool" things like the jacket.
Oh, and I'm jealous of his helmet too, he says it has LOTS of air flow through it and no noise. It is a Vega youth helmet that is DOT and Snell approved.
