I have the Regulator Skull. I love it and get a lot of compliments. Nothing like passing by cagers and all they see is that big skull on your back getting smaller, and smaller, and smaller.

It's not about showing off our arms dude. Maybe for the cruiser crowd. I wear forarm and elbow protectors when I wear the vest or the Icon Armor vest when it's warm out.

Ebay is your best friend. I got mine for $115 new. But, that was when they first came out. I guess there wasn't that much interest in them at first.

I have the Hayabusa style. It was given to me as a gift when I got my bike. I love my vest and wear it when I'm doing non-freeway trips.

I don't see how this is better than the icon field armor; it has saved my back more than 20 times and is still in good shape. It's way better than this regulator vest if you ask me.

I own both. I just remove the back protector out of the regulator vest for comfort. It slides comfortably over the field armor vest. Throw in a pair of field armor forarm/elbow guards and you're good.
