Kid's street protective gear
I did a half-assed search ("kid protective", I think) and didn't like any of the hits.
My 13-year-old likes riding with me, but I hesitate taking him on anything more significant than around the block because of his protective gear. He's got a great First Gear jacket with all the armor and pretty good gloves, but regular hiking boots and motocross pants. The pants would probably go away in a good slide, but I figure not as fast as Levi's.
Since I've not yet done a diligent search on what's out there, my solution has been to keep telling him, "Next time". That makes me feel terrible just writing it.
Any wisdom on how to dress a growing kid for good street protection without going broke?
