Hey all riders! I have been through leather and settled on the new mesh style with armor jackets. My favorite brand Olympia Moto Sports, have done lots of research 1. cordura is the best material (highly abrasion resisitant) all the high end pricey brands use it, 2.Olympia is not as pricey because they do their own distribution... no middle man. So high quality mesh / airflow jacket with CE armor and cordura, well designed gear, great reviews all over the web.
I also like that they dont have their name or logo in huge letters all over the jacket like some other brands do. I have there switchback and nomad jackets . the nomad has a great system of panels that zip down to turn the solid cordura jacket into a mesh airflow type, the switchback is a mesh jacket with tons of airflow great for summer riding both have rain liners.
info only site for them is
www.olympiamotosports.com there are plenty of ebay sellers with Olympia Moto Sports gear.
