I am having an internal dilemma. I have a DriRider Summit that I currently wear when out riding. It has all the protection that I need on the bike....kevlar, waterproof, lining, armour etc... After a year of riding I thought it about time that I get myself a leather jacket to compliemtn my "riding" wardrobe...the problem is that there is not much choice out there for women riders who aren't fans of the colour pink!! There is a bit of variety if I settle for an all black jacket, but I am not convinced that all black will give me good visibility other road users, especially when my bike is also black. So here is my dilema.. the one jacket on the market that I have completely fallen in love with is the Dainese Yu jacket. It is a fantastically soft leather, white and black in colour...and here is the but.......no armour, actually no protection whatsoever!!! Besides being a leather jacket, there does not seem to be any other advantage to wearing it on the bike. So, I would like to get other riders opinions....is armour really THAT important? How many of you have jackets without any armour? I dont want to be one of those riders that has to look the part rather than be sufficiently protected...but this jacket is just so amazing and soft and comfortable!!!!
