gauntlet vs regular gloves and question about hip protectors
I've heard from a ton of ATGATT guys that I should always have full gauntlets on. If I'm going just for a street ride, does the gauntlet/extra forearm protection provide that much more protection? I'm wearing a long sleeve jacket.
Also, I can't seem to find any riding pants that fit well. I was thinking about just buying hip protectors + knee pads underneath some jeans as an alternative. Anyone have any ideas for good hip protectors? The only one I can find are the bionic shorts by alpinestars.

Moto crashes can be violent. In the event of sliding, a jacket sleeve can be pushed up your arm. Gauntlets help prevent the cuff from catching on the pavement as well as provide extra wrist and forearm protection.
A good pair will have abrasion protection on the knuckles and wrist.
Shorty gloves may have the knuckle protection but none of the other benefits.
