    New question here. What armour jacket?

    I crashed real hard at Northstar and cracked my helmet in 2 spots, so now my parents what me to buy a armour jacket. I was thinking the 661 Sp-2 pressure suit or the TLD Descender protector. What are your opinion on these suits. Suggestions would also help?

    Thanks

    Dainese is first choice. The Safety Jacket is amazing. If you don't want to spend Dainese money get the Rockgardn Flak Jacket. It is great for the money. I have both and prefer the Dainese but the RG is very nice as well.

    Um...lets see...I'd personally give the...ahhh...ROCKGARDN Flak Jacket a real hard look. But that's just me. Oh and that other guy, and him, and her, oh and that doofus over there, anyhow you get the picture.

    Race Face. I'm very happy with it, and use it with RF rally arm and leg guards. Its better than an older Dainese jacket I have, probably as good as the new one I tried on. The jacket plus arms are $250 retail, still $100 or so less than Dainese. I crashed in it a few times, and it worked well. The Rockgardn seemed to offer the most protection, but at the expense of weight, that jacket is HEAVY.

    Dianese makes the best out there, but Rockgardn is damn close. The 661 feels cheap when compared to the RG.
    I'm UNIQUE... just like everybody else.

    I used the 661 SP-2 for motocross and took some HUGE diggers while wearing it. It absolutely kept me out of the hospital a few times.

    I own the flak jacket and tryed the dianese. both suits are pretty dope. my friend has the descender, and the extra 40 bucks I paid for the flak jacket was well worth it.

    Dainese if you can find it / afford it. I just bought the Fox and it's tight, hot, and not very comfortable - but that's just in my house. I'll get to try it for real this weekend.

    I use this one. Only complaint I have is the zipper is kinda hard to zip up due to it's location near the right shoulder.
