Thank you for the offer but the paper really wants a local OC tie in before they publish anything :(

Did your embarrassing story involve hot chicks?

Here is what i have so far

How do I repack the vest/jacket?

What is it like when it inflates?

What kind of rider are you?

What happens if I get off my bike and forget to unclip?


Any constructive suggestions are appreciated
I would like good washing/cleaning info for the MLV. It's confusing in the instructions..ie can I wash it in the machine if I take out the cartridge/ what about opening the zippers ? The hi-vis gets dirty fairly quickly

I am sure it says "cant wash it in a machine"

I get a basin with hot soapy water and a scrubbing brush. Scrub of the worst then use clear water to rinse and hang up to dry

Also works good for your helmet liner if it wont come out

Hmm, my husband said I should make up a story but I can't think of anything appropriate. I probably shouldn't be overly concerned with being appropriate on this forum though...okay, since there weren't any pictures and no one came running out of one of the houses to see if I was okay, there likely weren't any witnesses. Feel free to make up a story that included hot chicks

I killed the thread...must have been the lack of hot chicks...

I was looking on your website hoping to buy my daughter an air bag jacket so she wouldn't have to layer a jacket and a vest but I don't see any hi-viz jackets. Do you any hi-viz air bag jackets?

There are no Hi-Viz children's vests available at the moment. Hi-Vis are available in a couple of products for Adults

MLV-YC

and

MLV-PY

If you daughter is going to ride a lot on dark mornings or evenings then the MLV-RC is a good vest as well. It is covered in Lumidex so when light hits it, it turns white!

Let me know if you have any other questions

Alan

By the way MotoGP ROCKS

She's a teenager and would wear an adult size. I was hoping for a hi viz jacket with a female cut. Instead of having to purchase a jacket to go under the vest. Any women's hi viz air bag jackets? It's not easy to find women's gear but she's not built like a man

We dont have any Hi-Viz jackets at all

We have one female cut jacket but it is more Equestrian oriented and not high-viz
