Re: Riding gear
I have used the Motoport Airmesh Kevlar II stuff for years, and crash tested one about 5 years ago. It worked perfectly and I had no road rash at all. I have used it with a rain liner and the electric Warm-N-Safe electrics down into the teens and up to 100+ and high humidity weather in south Louisiana, and it simply works.
I recently invested in one off the police-style pants in khaki, and it is really nice too. Looks good and has all the armor.
After using the Motoport stuff, you will simply feel naked with anything else on the market.
To directly answer your question, the Stitch and BMW gear is good too, but both are useless in my area for about 10 months of the year because they are simply too hot.
