Default do i wear the motorcycle body armor inside or outside of the jacket?

i am a new rider and am interested in uping my saftey by getting some body armor. i was thinking about getting the Icon Field Armor Vest Chest Protector, it seems to offer a lot of pretection as well as being very affordable! would i wear this outside my textile jacket or inside? also, can you recommend any other armor that is reasonably priced with good protection? thanks.

you wear it inside your jacket. The jacket is a"2nd skin", to protect you against abrasion. it should be the FIRST thing to come into cntact with the road.The armor is meant to absorb impacts. It doesnt protect well against abrasion. Also, having it under the jacket gives an extra bit of cushion when you fall. ------

Inside.Icon makes good gear. You are starting off with the right approach. Get good comfortable gear that looks cool. Then you will be more likely to wear it. I have an Icon Tarmac mesh jacket for summer riding, but I heard perforated leather is actually just as cool and offers more protection. I just got one to try as soon as the weather warms up enough to need it.There are a ton of good companies that make riding gear. Powersportsnetwork,com has reviews.

I am totally agree with AA, i am always wear my armor inside the jacket, because it will protect much better than outside, and obviously jacket is a 2nd skin to protect you against abrasion.
