Tanya, I believe MFI has them in black and XS.
However, I don't think they provide much protection. :dunno:

Yeah, but they look cool.
and they're a hell of a lot cooler than leather.

and I don't think MFI is offering this deal

I'd be surprised how well they protect. I know of two people that have wrecked with one of these on. One going 20 mph, not a scratch on him. The other at 45 mph, tore at the shoulder, but still protected the rider. Not a scratch on the rider!

Yeah, they look cool and are cooler than leather, but skin doesn't grow back and you don't look very cool without it.

Also, no they aren't $59 at MFI but they are on sale. I think they were $79.
I could be wrong though.

Confusing the issue, since before you were ugly.

Mine worked great as well from my lo-side at 45mph. I have the Reactor S and only the leather covered areas show I slid at all. Me... No bruises, bumps nor soreness. Works great!

Thanks for the reviews guys!
I was on the fence about getting one because there were a few days last year I didn't ride because it was too hot to even think of wearing a jacket.
Guess I'll try one...

I went down last year in a Phoenix jacket, pants, and gloves, lowsided at about 45. Walked away with some good bruises but no rash. I guess I'm a crazy f- cause I still wear the jacket and pants. Only has minor scrapes on the contact areas, after a good wash it was almost like new.
