suggestions please?

hey im buyin gear for riding in the street but i cant figure out what i want to get... i only shop icon brand.

so far im thinkin for street riding i should get: icon armor vest, elbow and leg armor and the icon air frame helmet, but then i think, maybe i can just get an icon jacket and the icon armor chest vest... since to what i can understand jackets come with shoulder and elbow protection but not chest/tailbone etc....

what do you guys think?

Shop for what fits properly rather than brand specific items. Starting especially the helmet, them try on various brands/ types of gear.

Instead of looking at gear by name (brand specific) look for gear that fits properly first!.
#1 helmet: You should look for the helmet that fits your "head shape". Try on different brands and models until you find the proper fit. A knowledgable person at a good shop should be able to help here. (Color and graphics after proper fit) example http://www.webbikeworld.com/motorcyc...helmet-faq.htm

Next look at your gear: leather, textile (crossover types) depending on the climate, riding conditions, versatility, material quality, armor type and durability etc. Proper fit and comfort as well as protective quality. If it doesn't fit well and is not comfortable, you are not likely to wear it ALL THE TIME. This goes for gloves, boots and pants as well.

Icon is an awesome brand. I love the fit and the style; we just got the new 7th Seal 2008 design in this week. Had a few customers asking about it.
