Knox, the makers of personal impact protection systems, have apparently responded to demands from off-road riders for lightweight kit, by introducing the low profile Guerilla padded vest and shorts to its Off Road range. Some overlanders do like to use this kind of product in association with clothing that can then be used off the bike, to cut down on luggage.
Designed and manufactured in Britain, the padded vest and shorts, intended to be worn under protective clothing, are suitable for those who feel the need for extra protection.
The sleeveless Guerilla Vest is made from stretch mesh for maximum breathability and coolness, with lightweight Polyethylene (PE) embossed padding on the chest and back.
However, when full impact protection is required, optional Knox CE armour can be added to the chest and back using Velcro attachments. With stretch loops on the shoulders for connection to the many compatible neck braces on the market, this vest is truly versatile.
The Knox Guerilla Vest is in black/white and available in sizes S – XXL at £60.
The shorts are finished in black and are available in sizes XS – XXL at £45 . For further info call Knox on 01900 825825 or visit www.knox-armour.co.uk.
