    I'm in the market to get a new jacket. And am late to the party on wearable airbags. What's the scoop on them? I see a couple of jackets with airbags, but looks like the airbag vest is the preferred way to acquiring this rider protection. My searches of the internet have found plenty of products to buy, nothing that reviews products, or explains the preferred solution.

    Thanks in advance...

    Thanks!
    If its raining the liner would be on the outside, and on the inside for cold weather. Thats what I was told. I just bought the Blue and Grey Rally size 58 from a dealer in VA. I have my eye on a Klim but there sizing is different than other companies. One dealer told me he spent over a 1000 dollars on a Klim coat and he has to rolled the cuffs up on the arms. I tried the induction 2 summers ago looks wise it was great, fit wise, either to big or to small.

    I'm fortunate enough to have accumulated multiple jackets over the years.
    My fave is my Roadcrafter. (spring fall) I have Klim latitude when it is not cool enough for the Roadcrafter and I have the Klim Marrakesh for summer riding. Some days its my BMW airshell and jeans (really really humid and hot)

    Posts like this mean a great deal more if readers have some sense of the writer's location and climate.
