Backache sorted at last (I think!)
« on: October 31, 2013, 09:21:21 am »
Well I have had backache for most of the year. I thought it was the bike. I have finally worked out it is the Furygan jacket? The jacket is Eu approved and fully armoured. I can only assume the cut of the jacket is wrong for me. I found out through trial and error.

Has anyone else been in a similar position where the clothing caused aches through restrictions?

Usually it is both more comfortable and also safer to find a snug and comfortable back protector vest and not have any back protection in the jacket. Not only does the kind of back protection that fits in the jacket normally offer less protection (it tends to slide around), but with a good vest you can have a couple of different jackets and not have the additional cost of back protection for each of them.

I personally wouldn't want to ride without protection from head to toe, with head, shoulders, back, elbows, hands, hips, knees and feet protected, and my Rukka and Lindstrand gear together with a Knox vest keep me both comfortable and relatively safe.

I have a frank Thomas mesh jacket with armour. I put this on and then put on my US flying jacket. Much more comfortable and warm. This does not give me backache!

Anyone want to buy an as new furygan jacket?
