I gave Johnson Leathers a call and...

Why not go to your local authorized dealer and buy one that has the "Made in the USA" label on it? That way, you can be the judge on quality and fit before parting ways with your money.

Direction of Hiprotec armor?

Silly question, but what side of the Hiprotec armor goes against my skin? The side with the bazillion little round thingy's or the smooth side.

Thanks.
