A few weeks ago we wrote about a specialized service that tailored your favorite blue jeans into motorcycle jeans, abrasive- and impact-proof (link ). But you don't really need special motorcycle clothes to be safe. Leathers are nice when riding on a track, impact resistant clothing important when riding off-road, so why am I saying that you don't need special motorcycle gear. What I am saying is that you can go out in your normal blue jeans and sweater and still be safe.
Bohn Armor make special armor pants and shirts that will protect your from abrasion and impact, all that while remaining invisible.
The Bohn Adventure Pants are very thin and can easily be worn UNDER your normal jeans. The armored pants, as the name implies, has armor protection at the knee-shin, hips, thigh and tailbone areas and are molded into the mess material.
The material is thin, lightweight, cool and comfortable and they have different materials available depending on your seasons and requirements. This allows you to wear your favorite trousers, be it blue jeans, cargo pants, slacks or your tuxedo dress pants and still be safe on your bike.
Of course if you do fall off your motorcycle, your trousers will be toast, but you will not be.
Price: starting at US$159 (different materials are available) ending at US$173.
For the top half of your body there is the Bohn Armored Shirt, with the same principle.
It's so thin you can wear it under your shirt, sweater, polo shirt, hoody, or dress shirt.
The arm/elbow, shoulder and back is armored.
Price: starting at US$149 ending at US$163, depending on the material.
They do have package deals if you buy both at the same time.
