All-

Helite's Leather Airbag Jacket combines a mechanical airbag apparatus with traditional cafe styling. Tune in to see how it held up over my winter commute! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LYQTQR0PpM

Very nice review. For me, I think I'm leaning towards the vest which will give me more options for using different coats.

I tested the vest 2 years ago. It's more flexible because you can wear it over any jacket - but it's also bulkier and more cumbersome, especially in hot weather. Decisions, decisions....
