I mainly commute.* I'm not an aggressive rider.* I love my wife and kids and would happily sweat a bit more to wear more armor.* I have a GREAT Joe Rocket jacket that I love.* But it has a measly foam pad for back protection!* And it does not have a replaceable pocket?!* I would have to do surgery to replace it.* So I'm thinking about getting something I can strap on the outside of the armored jacket.* Is this just plain overkill for a commuter?* (Is ANY armor overkill, really?) I really would like something that has over flex protection as well.
Here are some I'm looking at: (Sorry for the code block but the forum is wrapping the links somehow that causes them to break)
I'm totally open to other brands. I just want to live to retire to a private island somewhere.
