We all know the value of protection when riding your motorcycle off road or on a long tour around South Africa. You dont want to have the Helivac guys come and casavac you out when all you needed was the right protective gear.
Traditional European motorcycle jackets attempt to offer body armour as part of the deal. This works in a cooler climate but when you are riding in Africa you need something that offers superior protection while not being hot. This type of jacket offers superior airflow ! while protecting all the vulnerable hard bony parts that take a beating should you come off.
Should the weather be cooler however this jacket can still fit underneath your regular riding jacket. This therefore is a win win for both winter and summer riding.
Soft tissue injuries tend to heal quickly. This is because of the oxygen-rich blood being constantly pumped through the affected area. The hard bony areas with only a thin layer of skin are a problem however e.g. hips, knees, ankles, shoulders, elbows and knuckles. An off road jacket like this covers a lot of these areas.
