Have you ridden your dirt bike and crashed hard without wearing any protection on upper body? It hurts, doesn’t it? And it doesn’t always go away after a couple hours either. I don’t like it either, which is why I started looking for some full-body protection. I didn’t want to spend a fortune, so when I found the EVS BJ22 Ballistic Jersey I jumped at the chance.
What Does Full Protection Mean?
The EVS BJ22 features full torso & new design elbow protection. Full torso padding covers your chest, stomach, and your complete back. You really can’t get much more protection than that.
What If It Gets Dirty?
Don’t worry, this jersey armor is fully machine washable. This makes cleaning it a whole lot easier, and you don’t have to ride with smelly gear. I recommend you air dry it though.
No Elbow Pads Required!
The EVS Ballistic Jersey has built in elbow pads and shoulder protection. This means you don’t have to go out and buy more gear to put on your body and restrict your extension while riding. With the BJ22 Jersey I have no problem with moving around, even with the EVS RC2 on. They are made of strong plastic, and stay together very well.
You Don’t Get Back Protection Like This From A Normal Chest Protector!
The BJ22 is body armor for a reason. The back padding is similar to the front, protecting your backside if you fall and slide or hit something. It is more useful than you may think! Have you fell and hit another riders foot-peg on the way down? That will leave a mark for quite some time.
Less Pain From Riding?!
Something that many riders don’t, but possibly should be wearing, is a kidney belt. The Ballistic Jersey comes with a built-in, double-closure kidney belt, allowing you to adjust it to any size you want. What a kidney belt does is keep your back and stomach tight and straight while riding. It helps reduce back pain, and will keep your internals from juggling around when you stop abruptly from hitting something. It’s so easy to use, and isn’t uncomfortable for me while riding or racing.
