Is it better to opt for Torso Armour (http://www.cramster.in/motorsport.php) or Breezer or DSG Nero?I am looking for gear which gives allround protection for chest,spine and other area of upper half. If Torso armour is better option, then what are different options while selecting jackets?

If you are asking about riding jackets with built-in armor, then DSG is way better compared to Cramster. The stitching and quality of material is pathetic in cramster.

Better still go for AlpineStar. They cost more than DSG but quality is very good.

You can buy a bionic spine protector for additional protection if required. The jackets contain CE approved protectors for elbows, shoulder and a foam protection for the back.

Aditya, I am asking which would be a better option to have:- dedicated Torso armor(Cramster has one for 4.8k) or a riding jacket with built in armor?

Recommended jackets without armor/protection, which are waterproof and take care of cold weather?

Safest bet is to invest in a good leather riding jacket with built in CE approved armor. Leather has the highest abrasion resistance and will protect you best in case of a crash. Additional armor such as kidney protectors, bionic armor, spine guards etc, can protect you better.

AlpineStar leather jackets are waterproof and last quite a long time. Leather is almost an all weather gear and if required you can buy a warm thermal inner liner which you can wear inside the gear.

I got myself Alter Ego pants from PRS
JoeRocket.com
Cost -- 10.5K

AFAIK they do not stock any other brands & I found Joe Rocket's quality to be very good.

Recently cam across the Quencho glasses in an wildcraft outlet in bangalore .The cost of the Glasses was very resonable and very few variety was available.
Good gear for riding in the city and for daily use.

I bought this Cramster Twister recently for Rs 1500.00, initially felt little uncomfortable, but am getting used to it.

Also does anyone have any idea about where do we get RJays riding gears in Bangalore. They have some real good riding jackets. There is one store in Mumbai by name Bachoo Motors. He will ship the product, but do not want to take the risk with the size.

Thanks in advance.

Friends, does any of you ride your bike to work / college during monsoon? What kind of riding gear do you have? I have a Joe Rocket for long rides, but need something for the monsoon in city rides. Can you suggest something?

@navpreet - lovely jacket and gloves bro...superb stuff!!!
