Looks good but you’d be the laugh of the town on your EUC riding around with that on. I have the name brand FOX version (that’s much more robust BTW) and I’d only ride around with it if I’m going 30MPH on the main roads. You’d just scare pedestrians if you ride the sidewalks wit that much armor. 

Id go for body armor you can wear under a long sleeve shirt comfortably like the Demon D30 FlexForce. You don’t want your armor showing.

I have the flex force D30  upper.  The good thing is it really fits under a shirt.  You can take all the pads out for washing or you can insert what pads you want depending on how much protection you want.   I also use for some of my more extreme skiing.

I took this jacket:

 it has pads for elbows, shoulders and back, a liner for cold weather and some vents for warm weather riding.

Textile or leather jackets work well to protect against abrasion/road rash from falls. That joe rocket is a motorcycle jacket which is what I would recommend, it doesn’t need to be expensive since you’ll only be going like 30mph max on an EUC. You better be riding on the roads or at least bike path and not the sidewalks though or you’ll look ridiculous haha.

Can someone recommend an armored jacket that is normal looking? I want it to be easy to take on and off because I hop on my MTen3 several times a day for short jaunts around downtown.  It should be like taking on and off a normal jacket.  I want to wear this instead of a winter jacket.  I’ll figure out something else for summertime.  (I also wear FF helmet and Wrist Guards).  I work in a corporate-type job, so I need to look normal as possible, no road-warrior/Batman type armor; I want something that could pass for a normal jacket.  Any suggestions?

 

Thanks in advance.

How about those mc-leather jackets with paddings; I think they are as normal looking as you can get if you want any protection.

Wear body armor underneath normal clothes.

You’re still going to need to have a winter jacket, 99% of motorcycle jackets are for warm weather so get body armor instead to layer under a winter coat.
