Anyone have some suggestions on what riding gear has held up the best? I started out riding when I was 8, wearing t-shirts, jeans, and shoes. Now that I'm older and have humans besides myself to care for, I'd rather be safe. What pants have held up and worked the best? I like the idea of ventable pants, so I can control the temp better. Do they offer more protection than a good pair of jeans? Would you recommend knee protectors, and if so, are there any that don't quite fit in a pair of riding boots? (I have an old pair of Fox Forma boots). What about chest protectors? Most of the manufacturers market them as roost deflectors - are they worth anything in a crash, or are they just good at keeping rear wheel spray off of ya? Any other suggestions? I see kidney belts, elbow pads, kneck braces (EVS), pressure suits, etc. in the magazines. Right now I own a helmet, boots, and goggles. Much safer than when I was 8, but I'd like the opinion of others on the forum of what is worth it, and what isn't. Thanks a lot!, M.
