Does your gear support the Dianese air bag vest? If not in the future and your budget allows considering getting some and the air bag vest. I have the alpine stars one and although I have never needed it to deploy I like the safety net it provides. Kind of like a gun or a condom, would you rather need it and not have it, or have it and not need it?

Hey Gemini, appreciate this recommend. I saw that Max Wrist uses one (only YT'r I've seen use one, really), but didn't know Dainese made one. I'll definitely take a closer look at it and potentially pull the trigger and can update here if I do.

Yeah no worries bro, I know they are pricey so I'm not like shoving them in peoples faces, but if you can afford it, I think its 100% the best choice. I always wear all my gear when I ride. It might be hot, and might seem outrageous, but the protection just can't be beat for me.

Quick question - do you wear your vest along with back and chest protector inserts ?

Yes I do. The jacket I have fits me loosely enough and has accordion panels. From what I've read its not recommended but this is America so more is better imo.

I bought the Dainese vest just now after letting it sit in my brain for a week; looking forward to trying it out!

Really seems to depend on my mood, the weather and which bike I'm on.

But I'll try to give a bit of a list.

Kevlar jeans (4 different pairs some I love some not so much)
Various thermal undergarments (again depending on the weather)
Alpinestars jacket for the warmer weather
Some other very old jacket that is heavy and very warm for the winter
2 Shark Helmets and one Dririder helmet
Sidi Boots
Dririder street boots
So many pairs of gloves its just stupid (I'm guessing about 12-15 pairs ranging from very expensive to very cheap) however I really only wear 3 different ones most of the time

Now as I said pick any combination of all those items and that's what I wear.

There is also a collection of old gear from the past 35-40 years of riding.

Just the basics for me; an Icon full-face, alpinestars jacket, and boots and gloves :p

Gonna look for one of those armor vests for the summer, since the month of May was a temperamental child and we hit like 40 degrees C this past week. I did not have a good time with my regular jacket in that heat lol
