I just picked up a safety jacket from dainsese and it says not to wash it? So my question is do you guys wear somthing under your armor to keep it semi clean. I mean it seems like a few rides and the thing is going to run away from you if you just wear it over your skin?

I wear absolutely nothing under my ROCKGARDN Flak Jacket. The instructions on my Flak say not to machine wash it, but that doesn't mean you can't hand wash it or hose it off and spray it with some Fabreze after to help freshen it up. Works pretty good for me. ;)

I too wear nothing under my 661 Safety Jacket. I don't hose it or anything. I love the smell of my own stench.

I have a Dainese Safety jacket - I used to wear nothing (scratchy) then small t-shirts (sopping wet) now trying UnderArmor for Heat, a thin wicking material - way comfy for me. Be careful it comes in Heat and Cold favors with different attributes. It's being pimped on billboards and sold at Copeland, etc. as a baseball player item.....google.....here's a link...

Oh and I don't really bother to wash my jacket although I have a couple of times...it didnt disintegrate, but, obviously, drip-dry it.

Under Armour

nike dry fit shirts are great. Though I do like those nipples :p
I use Under Armour gear under my DH armour. It's very comfortable and doesn't bunch up. I also use Under Armour for other sports (softball, dragonboat racing, tennis, xc riding). They also have loose gear, which is also very comfortable.

I used to borrow Weyvoless' sports bra...
that was quite binding and restricted breathing though..
now i use one of those wicking base layers that roadies wear made by Da feet I think...
it dries so fast i'm not walking around all wet.. pretty cool...
plus, the nips don't get rubbed..then again..WCH's suggestion would work too... =)

You can machine wash armour

I have a Dainese Safety Jacket, and I throw it in the washing machine on the gentle/knits cycle and warm/cold water when it starts to stink ... always unzip the spine protector and zip up the chest zipper and buckle the shoulder clip ... have done this about 10 times, put ~50 days of riding on it, and the jacket still looks new and doesn't smell like a hockey bag.

That said, I usually wear a road bike jersey under the jacket unless it's super hot out.

I've got the Rockgardn and I just machine wash it in a knit bag. Throw all the pads in the knit bag (like a laundry bag made of some mesh material), knees, rockgardn, etc., toss in the washing machine (front loader, size small, at the laundromat), couple cups of detergent and it comes out smelling fresh and clean. Haven't had a problem with any rips/tears/etc, but have only been doing this since April.

So yeah, nothing under the armor... :)

I wear a small sleeveless jersey under my presure suit, which pretty much UnderArmor just cheaper. Also hose down your armor when it stinks and let it dry in the sun.
