Riding in hot, stuffy riding gear is one of the worst aspects of motorcycling in the summer. There’s gotta be a better way...

That armor looks good, interested to see that no dual sporting gear for mentioned. Dual sport jackets are often mesh everywhere you dont need slide protection, i run a dry rider and its been great, handles a good old fall in the dirt and cool enough even in out back Australian heat. (When riding). Colour plays a huge role in staying cool especially in those slow speed conditions like single track or traffic. Light greys and whites are the go. Dual sport helmets also have additional ventilation. Love your videos, think i might see if I can find those pants, see if they are stretchie enough to let me get on my bike.

I wear a HWK air mesh jacket in the texas summer.. if you wear a compression/moisture wicking shirt ("under armor") under any vented jackets (*NOT* a water soaking cotton t shirt) you actually cool far better.

Y'all think I could wear the compression shirt and then a very heavy weight leather jacket(not a riding jacket) for abrasion protection? Would this be the same protection as wearing a riding jacket?
Johnalogue Prieš mėn
That not-jacket temps me despite being of the "well, I wouldn't want to go out with inadequate protection" mindset. You talked me into it but I'm sure it's noticeably less safe than a jacket, right?

If the elbow wasn't one inch off the edge of the D3O this could have been a great light armour. Depending on a persons arm the D3O can fall off the elbow altogether leaving you completely exposed. Not the smartest design ever is it?

I don’t like to nitpick (I’m lying) but Icon could well get their jacket CE approved: “(17092) Classification C covers garments such as the mesh under-suits that have impact protection for off-road riding.” In fact, if they want to sell in the UK or EU I think they must get it certified. I have a similar jacket called the KNOX action shirt but it has CE armour but no abrasion protection. I stopped using it because I found the much better Bull-it airflow suit made entirely of covec (LC polymer) with similar properties to aramid. I ride in Southern Vietnam (tropical weather all year round) so I need good ventilation. Unfortunately, single layer rider jeans, although extremely popular, aren’t very protective. Layering does get hot but not too bad if the ventilation is adequate. Motocap has shown that single layer clothing made of anything (except leather) isn’t any good at impact abrasion. Have you seen single layer jeans passing 13595 level 2 or even the more lenient EN17092 AAA? I haven’t. I’ve got layered jeans PMJ (17092 AAA level, 13595 level 1) and in the tropics they are just fine as long as you keep moving. In my opinion, gear manufacturers are being dishonest that single layer textiles are especially protective. Physics, backed up by testing, shows us that it can’t be. You need one layer to handle the impact, then another to handle the slide. Just look at GP suits or even much older leather suits. They almost always have multiple layers at the impact zones. That being said, I just wish people would wear some protective gear beyond a helmet. Where I live, 99.999% are squids.

I liked the recommendation about the glasses, but not having protection for the nose is irrational, as a motorcyclist who has had stones thrown against the helmet I know the damage it would do to my face if I were not wearing a closed full face helmet.

UHMWPE Fiber (Dyneema) has a really low coefficient of friction (COF) also Fiber on Fiber, hydrophobic (very low water absorption), Good UV tolerance. Para-Aramids (Kevlar, Twaron etc) Doesn`t do well here. UV and water absorption of Aramid degrade the fiber properties alot.

I really like the look of the armored shirt, and I totally buy the logic of how the armor can work and be missed by the standards (those being a kind of lowest common denominator). Apparently, these are not available, so I contacted ICON, and received a help response, that these will once again be in stock come mid-August.

Take a look at dyneema also. Pando Moto is offering something similar, leggings with stretch, venting and abrasion (dyneema) + hardshell armour, and the pants/leggings would fit under a pair of jeans. (using Levis 527 stretch, bootcut myself) - cause kevlar/aramid is warm as all hell. Saving up for the leggings, and then the Pando Moto jacket/shirt. Could be used under any regular clothing, and is breathing in the right spots. (Actually Pando Moto could send me a pair of leggings for sticking my neck out here :) )

Why not buy a mesh jacket with armour? It's perfect in our hot Australian climate...the tight fitting armoured shirt looked very clingy and hot. Maybe in a Canadian summer? Keep up the good work Ryan.

I bought the Field Armor pants when they first came out and was very disappointed. The D3O is so thin that one of the panels split it two. I’ll stick with my oxymoronic mesh jacket and I’ll suffer the lack of breathability of Kevlar lines jeans.
