Default Protection

Sup drag, it's been getting hot as balls lately, and only assumed to be getting hotter. I ride with a Speed and Strength jacket which is f'ing amazing, but I just want a variety of protection just for those humid testical sticky days.

Wanted to see if anyone was familiar with this type of amor/protection.

You guys wear anything similar or have any good suggestions? I'm 5'8" 189lbs, with a semi athletic build...

EVS G5 Ballistics Jersey. It says it's great gear for all riding... but any input would be helpful.

What's wrong with the good old fashioned Pheonix?

I do realize they're only good for one good wreck........but how often are you planning on going down?

Jackets aren't like helmets. If you wreck with a jacket on, and its still in good shape afterward, your good'ta go.

I just want good protection without the sticky humid testicles... ya dig?

How was the fit? And how similar was the older version compared to the jacket above? Any pics maybe?
