ok i found a tld descender for a damn good price but i have doubts if it is any good? my other option was the 2006 rockgardn armor. the rockgardn was a little more expensive. is the tld even worth looking into? o and pleese dont tell me to get some dainese or overpriced jacket that i cant afford. thank you

I would get the new Rockgardn Flak jacket--without a doubt. In the past, people would suggest the Dianese, because the material was a lot cooler than other brands. However, that's just not the case anymore; the new Flak jacket breathes very well. Not only will it keep you cool, but it will protect like no other suit--and that's what really matter.

In my opinion, no other suit offers the same amount of protection as the Flak jacket--it is really spot on with a lot new features that no other suit offers. Buying a Flak jacket is a NO REGRET purchase.

sounds good but, the Balfa Jacket has by far the most protection for shoulders ,elbows,chest, and back. Not very ventilated, although it has a huge burly zipper that wont let you down ,a pocket to put stuff in....Kind of hard to find and pricey.

TLD Descender is the same as Azonic Z-6 minus plastic chest protectors. In my opinion You should go with Rockgardn

have you looked into 661 preassure suit. me and bizutch both use them and i have no complaints out of mine. it has done its job plenty of times for me and fits as comfortable as a jacket can.

I'm more concerned with melting on hot days. The days I go riding always seem to be super hot.

The reason I bring this up is that there are some available for cheap on pricepoint.
