What are people's opinion on Kevlar and specifically, Roadskin (who also do Titanite) gear?
I am looking for gear that's lightweight, but still tough, for summer riding, because it's gonna get hot, I'm gonna riding a bike to work and let's face it, get sweaty and stink the office out, especially for somebody who tends to radiate heat as it is (it's one of my superpowers, including the ability to drink lots and never get hungover, but I am still waiting to hear back from my application to The Avengers).
Kevlar seems like a decent option and Roadskin do a kevlar hoodie that works as a jacket.
But they also have products using a material call Titanite, which is the more expensive of the two options. From test conditions in videos it looks like a very robust material. Honestly, it sounds ideal in what I am looking for in protective clothing
However, I am looking at either buying their, fully lined Kevlar Hoodie,
or their more expensive Titanite Hoodie
. As either choice would seem to be durable enough, with armour options available and yet lightweight enough not to boil in the summer and remain waterproof enough to ride in.
Or better-suited gear I've not thought about.
