What is Goth about purple Butterflys?

I say option #3 because the three straps in back make it look more like a straight jacket.

I like the design on the back of the GOLD DIGGER ONE.
But, I really like playing cards and Queens are usually a winning hand

You'll be more likely to wear the Cleo 9 months out of the year.

IMO the other 2 don't flow enough air to be comfortable most of the time.

Leather gear will offer the most protection, but in my experience, it takes a LOT of discipline to put on a leather jacket during the hot April through September months down here.

The best protection in the world won't do you any good if it's hanging in the closet because it was too hot to wear.

Just as important as what jacket you get will be how it fits you; too loosely and the armor will shift when you go down. If it's too constrictive, it can limit movement.
