Post Air bag vests..
A thread on the trackday junkies facebook group got me thinking.. As nice as the suits are with the built in bags, $4k is a tough pill to swallow.

Safermoto.com has this hit-air system that several people have been using for a while and are very happy with, and it's field-repackable, unlike the A* and Dainese suits that have to go back to Europe.

http://www.safermoto.com/air-bag-vests/race/track-vest/
details.. http://www.hit-air.net/wp-content/uploa ... etails.jpg

Full price is $450, I know they're working on a group buy, maybe get the price down to $400?

I really think that this would be a worthwhile purchase.. Certainly cheaper than my year's worth of physical therapy appts at a $30 co-pay per visit!

Discuss.

Pretty interesting but I spent my play money on two guns this month. I'll have to look into the vest over the winter maybe.

Dang, and I thought I was good by getting ONE! This price is like $100 off though.. use "woman logic" to justify it! Besides, how can she say no to safety gear? :D
