Loving this. I ride primarily around town (this includes our amazing canyons) and live in Los Angeles so my needs may be a bit different. I rely on Arai for the last 20 years for a good fitting helmet. I wear either a Vanson or a Schott leather jacket with a Knox armoured shirt underneath. In warmer weather I have a Dianese perf jacket with armour built in. For pants either RevIt Alpha chinos or Aether Mojave pants (depends on the weather, the Aethers have nice venting for hot days and added hip armour) I also have a pair of Dianese adventure pants for longer journeys. I wear RevIt gloves with smart phone tech, don't love them but they are protective and pretty comfy, I used to use a pair of Lee Parks deer skin gloves but they have no armour so I had to give them up. For boots I wear Red Wings, which is not the best. In fact investigating some of the boots y'all are endorsing on here.
