I like the article and I love this hoodie! It is the perfect combination of comfort and some protection. Being from a colder climate, I wear my heated jacket under this hoodie and when it is raining out I wear a waterproof liner under the hoody, and the jacket dries quickly once the rain stops with the wind from traveling at highway speeds (and the bugs are washed off, LOL). I refuse to ride without armor (that is just my choice) but I truly feel I have found the perfect balance with this hoodie.
It has faded from being out in the elements, sun, rain, occasionally snow. But it is worth the money as I have had mine for three seasons now, and it is still in good shape, just some fading which may be fixed with some black clothes dye.

I think this hoodie is wonderful and would probably have bought it, until I saw the price. It would be perfect for the hot rides to and from work daily, but not really affordable. Love the look though.

I really can't see this as anything other than an overpriced hoodie. It states it is not Kevlar or textile. It is a cotton/poly blend. So why not purchase some good elbow/shoulder armor and wear any hoodie?

How far would you skid on the road before the fabric would be gone along with the armor it briefly held? Maybe 5 feet? So your arms would be lost to road rash. And are those really regular blue jeans on Rachel? If so, we know they won't stand up to a road slide either. OUCH!
