A JACKET WITH SAFETY AND STYLE
The Helite Leather Airbag Jacket is the motorcycle jacket that has it all. This full-grain cowhide jacket is equipped with Helite's revolutionary airbag technology to take the impact out of crashing. When activated, the airbag offers rigid support for the head and neck to reduce the risk of a traumatic brain injury. The head and spine will stay fixed in a natural upright position to reduce whiplash injuries. The airbag itself is expertly integrated into the jacket to create a streamline look. For comfort, the jacket features a soft collar neck, adjustable waist circumference, and good airflow because of the mesh side panels. The Helite Leather Airbag Jacket is perfect for those safety conscious riders with a passion for fashion and style.

I was apprehensive about ordering the leather jacket due to heat. After riding the last few days in 95° weather I can say I'm very happy with my purchase. With the liner removed there is plenty of airflow to keep me cool. I normally wear a large but was told to order a xxl due to European fitment, it fits great.
Jacket is of a very high quality. The stitching, leather, and zippers all exceeded my expectations. The pockets are large enough for my wallet, phone, and whatever else I carry. It looks great to boot.
While the jacket is quite heavy, once it's on I don't even notice. The heft is due to the quality of materials, not bulk.
Clipping in to the tether takes a day to get used to, but it's already second nature. I feel much safer knowing that my chances of neck injury are decreased. My wife worries less when I'm out riding as well.
I really hope more riders start wearing Helite. The protection is well worth the price. I hope to never have to use it but if the time comes I'll be very glad I decided to make the purchase.
