I was looking for a website that talks about motorcycle safety gear of the 1920's, to learn more about a safety harness that I saw in a photo in the Classic Motorcycles forum. In doing so, I stumbled on this company that sells (and perhaps makes) body armor that is worn under your jeans and shirts, and comes in versions for hot/humid, cold and all-weather conditions.

I am going to look more closely at them.

Here is their website: Bohn Body Armor

I am familiar with Bohn Body Armor. But have never tried it. A fellow rider I know in North Carolina swears by it.

Bohn have been advertising in the motorcycle magazines for many years.
It looks like a good product, but I have never been tempted to buy it.

This is very nice but unfortunately the prices are really far out for us this side.

I expected that you guys that read MC magazines probably would know about them. I read very few magazines and none of them are MC mags, so I didn't know about them. The prices, in country seem reasonable, but DaveM is right, international shipping puts them out of the market for a lot of people.
