Just wondered if anybody wore armor under there jeans? I own all the gear needed to protect myself including leather jacket and pants with armor, Joe Rocket balistic pants for touring if rain is possible also Sidi boots and race gloves. My second trip off the Island this year was calling for 35 degree C around Omak and I left the leather pants home and just wore jeans.(also wore lighter gloves) It was probably a good call as I almost died from heat exhaustion and I am sure I would have if I had the leather pants on.
I did adjust my speed somewhat as I didn't feel quite as protected but still felt a bit guilty for not wearing full leathers. Recently I purchased a set of knee/shin pads that fit great under casual jeans. The shin part fits nice in the top part of my Sidi's where the leather pants are meant to go. I know my ass/hips etc. are still not protected but it's better than nothing.
Anybody else wear knee pads or any other kind of armor under there jeans?
I love Sept.full leathers are comfortable to wear.
