Best Protective Vest?
I'm going to be getting a Protective Vest but I'm not sure what to get. I've been using a Tipperary...which I know aren't good, but I've been saving for one of my own.
I've had someone mention Rodney Powell Vests, I've heard of them but I don't know much about them. Does anyone here have one? What do you think about them?
I also had someone say the Airowear vests are good?
What should I look for in a good vest?
I love my Airowear vest. Get it from the UK and it comes in colors and is cheaper than in the US.
i have a rodney powell and i love it. it is a really custom fit, you send in a bunch of measurements. my vest ifts me really well and is super comfy ! i think it was around $200.
I am currently using the Flex Rider vest, which is a great vest at a great price - but I am saving my pennies to get the Rhodney Powell.
whichever vest you choose, just make sure it is certified and approved through ASTM and meets BETA Level 3 standards.
OP, I never tried RP, but Airowear is indeed VERY comfy (but expensive).
Charles Owen is another good brand, but it's rather "cardboard"-feeling. :)
I love my Airowear. Make sure that whatever vest you decide on is certified, as some of the cheaper brands are not.
