From what I saw the key is "little more protection". Not sure they are worth the premium.literbike said:Anybody have a pair of these and what do you think about them? I kinda like the concept of something that looks like regular clothing, but offers a little more protection while riding. I looked around a few manufacturer's sites, and Joe Rocket seems to be the only one making gear like this. Is there anything else somebody has experience with or can recommend?
