My link on the Bilt jacket was just an FYI but I can't imagine it being that "bad" for something that is to be worn under a jersey/jacket and only $60.

Thanks Mouth. Some cheap gear is good and certainly better than nothing.

Do y'all know of another jacket with built in chest protection besides the Xelement and Spidi?

We must have damn near had a tornado last night. I thought it was weird how the rain was hitting every side of the house last night, and now I see dirt blown all over the outside doors from top to bottom. Anything that was outside last night got blown all over the yard. The trampoline was about 50 yards across the field. It looks like Branson got hammered!

I didnt even know it was storming, woke up and it was wet outside, and the dog was upstairs in sons's room.

he said the pooch was freaking out so he put him in his room.

My popup green house didnt blow away, I guess we survived it well.
