it is Azonic Z-6...they don't make the Z-5 anymore and you wouldn't want it anyway....the Z-6 has tons of improvements

Personally I love the Z-6...it is well vented, fits very nice and protects very well too. Remember to buy one size down because they run large

ROCKGARDN 06 Flak Jacket, doesn't get any better for the price. Unlike some other "catalog" branded armour, ROCKGARDN is made by riders, for riders and has many refinements that seperate it from the rest.

I've got an Azonic Z-6, size medium, brand new, never used, still in the plastic, if you're interested. $110. PM me if you want it.

i am so jealous of the 06 rockgarden flak jackets. i have the 05 which i bought at the end of summer and seeign the 06 i really wish i would have waited. the 05 is soo nice, i personalyl dont think you get to hot, doesnt move around while your wearing it. the 06 has to be amazing. i almost feel like i gotta cheated out of a good thing. oh well once my 05 gets to small or is unusable ill get the 06 :D

a friend of mine thought a storm trooper suit would be really good for biking, you would be able to move everyway but it wouldnt go far enough for something to break. you could just go ragdoll off some huge jump and not get hurt
