Shift is Fox's street apparel company... Since Fox makes good shit, I would imagine that Shift isn't gonna slackin on quality by any means.

But no, i don't have any personal experience with Shift gear


2001 GSXR 1000 (The bike that lit the afterburner on the liter class world)
2012 Monster 1100 Evo
2003 Yamaha YZFR6 (track only)

mmm... carbon fiber

Ive owned Shift gear and loved it. I use them for street riding, would have baught their amazing one piece for the track but due to money I opted with a group buy held on another forum i belong to and got a good deal on another brand.

Shift's gear is well made, good looking, has plenty of armor and padding in all the right spots. Only complaint I've ever heard about their gear is "it's a little bulky" and it is kinda true, but their great protection is what makes it bulky. Id say their a little warmer than some choices, but it has the removeable liner and such.

haven't ever used 'em, but they seem pretty decent. not a fan of the giant "equals sign" logo either

btw, i have an extra fieldsheer CE-plastic back protector pad if you want it? i'm not sure if it'll fit inside that pocket though (so long as it's a general shape back pocket it should).

my brother has that same jacket. he likes it alot. very snug and true to size. he has .....wrecked....crashed....umm....gone "off course" twice while wearing it and it held up great. he still wears it. I was thinking of buying one just for a spare since it was so cheap. I just went and looked at it, I dont really see any back protector, just a foam "cushion". but for 60 bucks you cant beat it.

60 bucks? don't know what you're talking about but the SHIFT line of street gears is NOT 60 bucks... the Superstreet jacket is something like $260.

My jacket has foam padding and a piece of CE armor in the back, which is removeable. But you're not going to find a true back protector in any jacket unless you buy one from Knox or another company.
