Can I wear the Custom leather vest when it is raining?
This leather vest is high-quality and can be worn when it is raining. However, it was not designed to be waterproof so the best solution is to wear a waterproof jacket under your Custom airbag. If you want to wear a waterproof jacket over your Custom, it must be large enough to guarantee an optimal inflation of the airbag and to keep an optimal protection. Stretchy leather on sides ensure a fitted cut and a high comfort. Very low cut underarm for full freedom of movement and to wear over other clothing or motorcycle equipment.
How can I maintain the Custom leather vest?
Like every leather vest a maintenance is necessary to keep its flexibility and its color. We recommend to maintain the airbag vest on a regular base using suitable products. Caution, do not wash the vest with a washing machine or with cleaning supplies, you can damage the leather.
Can I wear a backpack over a Helite airbag system?
Yes, while keeping in mind that the more resistance there is, the slower the airbag will deploy properly. We recommend to adjust your backpack straps fairly wide.
