Buy Motorcycle Armor Online

Updated on December 7, 2010

Choosing Motorcycle Armor

No matter what type of rider you are, it's a good idea to have good motorcycle armor. I have a street bike, so I find it near essential to riding to have good armor, but that doesn't mean that that armor isn't a good safety gear for a cruiser or even a mophead.

I prefer the Icon motorcycle armor vest, but there are other options that you may want to consider such as the full body and the shirt armor. The main reason I like the vest is because it's more comfortable and less constricting. I haven't really tried the full sleeve armor, but from what I've heard and read, the Nemeses and TMS body armor are two of the more comfortable brands of full body armor.

Depending on what you're looking for, you can choose what you find is more comfortable, but you want to find good riding armor that has straps for best positioning and adjustment, as well as rubber padding.

Icon Motorcycle Armor

Probably one of the best riding armor gear you can get. I have one of these and it is great in cold weather and just riding around town.

This armor vest fits under your clothes or your can wear it on top. I prefer to wear it on top of my shirt and under a jacket. This is the vest I wore when riding in 40F weather and to Mississippi from Georgia.

  • Breathable nylon mesh chassis w/synthetic leather overlays
  • Impact absorbing articulated back plastic
  • Elastic adjustment straps
  • Low-profile to fit under most jackets
  • Form-fitting chassis stays in place
  • Abrasion resistant slider panels
  • Reinforced rubber chest armor
  • Impact dispersing molded foam

Nemeses Racing Body Armor

The Nemeses brand is a good brand of motorcycle armor that will help protect your abdomen, arms, and shoulders. Personally, I prefer the vest, but this is a great motorcycle armor piece that you can wear for long trips, racing, and unknown terrain.

  • Full upper body protection system that will keep your front, back, elbows and shoulders
  • Adjusts to fit your body the way you like and fits well underneath your MX jersey.
  • Perfect for all types of motocross and off-road riders.
  • Zip up, ventilated jacket for comfort.
  • Elastic straps for sure positioning.
  • Perforated EVA foam impact layer.
  • Injected polyethylene armor.
  • Injection molded plastic spine protection.
  • Comes in different sizes.

TMS Motorcycle Full Body Armor

This is probably another one of the better full body armor that you can wear while riding. This armor jacket can be worn by itself or under a regular jacket. The armor pieces are all attached to the mesh shirt for optimum protection.

  • Full body armor (back protector, shoulder cups, elbow cups, forearm protector, chest foam)
  • Full zipper front closure.
  • Adjustable straps throughout the arms and shoulders.
  • Removable spine armor with tail protector.
  • Wide elastic waist belt with Velcro adjustment.
  • Thumb loops keep arm protection in place.
  • Made of light weight yet durable stretchable Lycra/mesh net fabric and high impact injection molded plastic.
  • Armor comes in sizes ranging from small to XXXL

      Hi MLOWEL, Good sound hub advice as protection is always better than cure, with a budding biker in the family it makes good sense.
