Bohn Armor is awesome!
« on: May 27, 2018, 11:14:15 pm »
I finally pulled the trigger on the bohn armor gear. Bought a shirt and pants combo. I decided that the cool mesh gear was best considering in live in socal, and its always warm here. Initial imperssion was a weird one! The pants feel like tights with lumps! But after i situated the armor and threw on my jeans, they essentially disappeared! I forgot i had them on when i was riding. The armor sat perfectly and did not cause any discomfort by shifting. When i finally stopped the bike, i could feel the shin/ knee pad shift as i walked. It was irritating at first ( only because I hate when my clothes feel like they dont fit properly) but i got used to it. After 150 miles i honestly wished i would’ve gotten a set sooner. I come from a cruiser background, so im most comfortable in jeans. These definitely give me the ability to have protection I want and not break the bank buying all kinds of riding gear.

 I've read about them, I wear a pair of armored black cargo pants but I'd like to explore some options.

You stopped the bike and then walked 150 miles? :-\ I'm impressed!  :)

No one is a TOTAL failure; they can always be used as a bad example.

Are their sizes close to real? Their web site seems to bear that out. I'm 6ft, 210lbs, 35in waist, 32in inseam, 46in chest, they tell me I need large pants and extra large shirt, looks about right.

I wear the large pants as well . Im 5’10” 220 with a 31 inseam and they work great! We are kinda close so i would trust them. The shirt for me is tighter. And i have a 48 inch chest. I bought my shirt a size smaller because i have no intention of wearing over a shirt or as a shirt. It will always be an undergarment for me.
