Air garments are all the rage lately, and for good reason. If this new HELITE Free-Air Vented Jacket works as good as the Alpinestars air vest we “tested” a couple days ago (more on that to come…), you’ll be glad you spent the money should you find yourself flying through the air without an airplane.

HELITE Moto Press Release:

With its fashionable, sporty and visible look, this new light and airy Hi-Vis version is perfect for taking a ride under higher temperatures. For maximum visibility day and night, this jacket combines retro-reflective panels with neon yellow on the front, shoulders and back.The jacket is worn as any other motorcycle jacket, but with extra protection! It is provided with Helite’s mechanical airbag system: easy to use, 4 years warranty and reusable. This unisex model fits any body type from size S to 4XL. Price = $939

This one doesn’t use a battery, but triggers its CO2 cartridge via a mechanical system. The press materials say it’s reusable, too, meaning it doesn’t have to be returned to the manufacturer for recharging post-accident. Of course there’s a video.
