Hi. I am planning my 30 day trip and am in Bangkok looking at motorcycle gear. It is not cheap, I am curious if there are good shops in Hanoi or HCMC to buy gear? I wonder if I should get it here because it is available? So I am curious what you veterans think about armour, and leather. There is a leather coat here for $300 that has tons of tiny holes in it, the store claims it will be breezy while biking, it also has a liner if you don't want the wind coming in. Regardless, I got hot in the store just wearing it, but it was a nice coat and looked nice, prob be $500 in the states. I also found nice full armour pants for $200usd. When I wear it in the store and think about the locals wearing flipflops and tank tops I feel like it is overkill. I hear it gets cold in the north?? When I am there (feb22-mar20) will it require a leather coat? Like I said it does have the tiny holes. The other option is a $100 mesh coat, very airy, with good armour--but it still would be hotter than a T shirt. And $120 kevlar jeans, not armour, just kevlar in key places. So yeah, what do you folks think about those options and the heat/cold? I will be biking in the north mostly, but I might go all the way to hcmc, I am fairly open. Maybe it would be better/cheaper to buy gear in Vietnam anyways??? Thanks in advance!
