Hey Red5...Just got it today.

Things I like.

The material is very soft. I won't have to wear a shirt underneath it no more.

Has an extra velcro strap on each side to tigten your back support up.

The spine protector is extra wide...more protection

very well ventilated

Purdy!!!

I'm glad your happy. Hey as long as it suits your needs, you should rock whatever your feeling. ;)

It's actually very similiar to the RG gear (for this year anyhow) except for the body material and some of the adjustment straps. The RG FlakJacket has more adjustment.

doesn't have the back straps....I always ride with the elbow guards....I never have money with me...no need and if I do it goes into the camelback.

Conclussion: For where I ride, Hot Southern California....I will take the Azonic because of the ventilation

how much $$ SMT? think it's better than a 661 pressure suit, the yellow one?
I got a cool hook up for my price but I think they are 150. Same pattern (for ventilation) as the 661. I like the wider back (might have it confused with the other one)

I'll see if I can get a close up pic later of the body material. It's actually a really fine mesh. When it streches it opens up more allowing it to breathe very well.

It's nothing like lycra I can assure you of that, if it were that would definitely be extremely unbearable. Pics don't do it justice.

Didn't feel a thing...yes they protect you well
