SAS-TEC Back Protector Cutting edge SAS-TEC material is intelligent armor constructed from visco elastic soft foam smart molecules. It has earned the highest CE rating available (CE level 2), during an impact, the armor freezes and hardens, absorbing the shock and distributing its force over a large area to reduce the risk of fractures. The protector is not destroyed by impact, but reverts back to its original state and maintains its capability to protect from multiple impacts. SAS-TEC Armor has a soft and pliable exterior (as opposed to rigid KNOX armor) which offers a great deal of comfort and mobility. This protector is anatomically designed and fitted to provide superior spine and back protection as well as the base of the neck /between the shoulder blades. SC-1/11 fits Women's Turbine Jacket SC-1/12 fits REV'IT! Cayenne Pro Jacket and Turbine Jacket REV'IT Gore-Tex Jackets have different shaped back protector pockets depending on the size of jacket, see the size chart for fitment information SC-1/16 should only be used for XYL or larger Gore-Tex Jackets SC-1/11 Measurements (approximate) Height 15 3/4 Width (at widest point) 13 Thickness 3/4 SC-1/12 Measurements (approximate) Height 19 Width (at widest point) 13 Thickness 3/4 SC-1/16 Measurements (approximate) Height 21 3/8 Width (at widest point) 13 3/8 Thickness 3/4

This is definitely an upgrade you need for back protection. There is no stiffness because it truly forms to your body. I have so many friends complain that they would rather use just the foam that comes with most jackets because their only option was to upgrade to something really uncomfortable. This also has some pretty decent airflow except for when I'm wearing the liner to my jacket but that is the whole point of the liner. and it was very easy to cut the protector to the size of the pocket. i just used the foam it came with as a template. i definitely suggest using the foam as a template to make sure you don't get cut happy. if you are the fence about which back protector to get i'm telling you go with the sas-tec.
Yes, I recommend this product.

this jacket has a decent amount of airflow with a really good liner. i will probably be able to get this jacket to go through fall because of the liner. i live in the northeast so being able to get the jacket to go through the fall is big. i think what really will make that possible is the cuff of the liner. it truly cuts out the airflow keeping you a little warmer. the fit is tight. so i would suggest that if you like to wear your jacket kinda loose i'd go one size up then you'd normally get. i got a medium when i normally wear a small. it fits great except the sleeves are little bit too long. but i also have short arms. i definitely suggest upgrading the back protector. i also do believe that you should get more then a piece a foam for the price that you are paying. this jacket also feels a bit on the heavier side when you first start wearing it. but once you really break it in you really can't feel the weight of it anymore. overall this is really great jacket. if you are looking for a leather jacket and don't want to spend a ton of money, this would be the choice.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Bell Vortex Archangel Helmet Even if you name is not Michael or Gabriel you will love this helmet! The graphics on this helmet are visual as well as tactile. Bold gray scale wings and roses frame the visor area over a background of raised red floral scroll work making this Bell Vortex Helmet a real standout. Apart from the crazy graphics this polycarbonate lid also sports a whole host of features developed at Bell's California design center for the Vortex's big brother the Star. This helmet is a solid choice for excellent graphics and design.

I am in the process of getting my endorsement to ride but i have worn this helmet while going for a ride with my friend and i truly enjoy it. i have a super tiny head (i'm 30 and where kids size fitted hats) and the XS fits like a glove. there is a lot of ventilation in the helmet which is very nice compared to his loaner helmet i'd usually wear. i messed up my neck a little while back and the weight is light enough that it doesn't bother me, where as the loaner helmet was on the heavy side and i could only ride with him for a short period of time. this helmet has a lot of visibility. i don't need to turn my head a lot to see left or right. overall i'd say this helmet was well worth the price. they have awesome customer service and their videos are also very helpful. i truly could spend hours on this site and will not buy any of my motorcycle gear anywhere else.
Yes, I recommend this product.
