I made a Hoodie.
« on: April 06, 2017, 06:34:42 AM »

Decided I wanted a new hoodie to ride in so I made this.





I know it seems pretty wanky and kid like but I don't care, I like it.

If you manage to make just one person stop using their phone, then it's a job well done, not wanky or childlike.

Great concept. I love the idea!

...but.

ATGATT. If you are wearing a hoodie and riding, you're not holding up your end of the bargain.

I agree. You could wear armor under it, but that's just the impact part covered, but no abrasion protection, well, maybe just the parts of your body that are covered by the armor.

Yeah, I'm sick of the amount of people on their phones, and then they call bikers reckless and idiots for lane splitting and filtering (it's illegal here, but you won't get a ticket for it. If an accident does happen, it's automatically your fault).

The armour I wear under my hoodie is better than the plastic padding and slide protection of my regular bike jacket.

I also agree with ATGATT. When I was doing my lessons my instructor even went as far as to say don't buy any black clothing, helmets or motorcycles. Only use high vis clothing and white/high vis helmets. Although you look like a prat, it will save your life one day. I suppose its just finding a balance.

Erk, black bike, black jacket, black boots, dark blue jeans, black and silver helmet........but then, I f*ckin' hate dayglow yellow stuff!!

Walking down the street one day recently I saw - police with dayglow vests, traffic wardens with dayglow vests, builders with dayglow vests, schoolchildren walking to school with dayglow vests, cyclists with dayglow vests - at what point does it stop working, when we are all in dayglow yellow?!?!  ;D

Whatever you think, ride defensively and treat everyone as if they are trying to kill you - don't rely on bright colours making them see you.  They won't.  ;)
