“20 years ago we set out to make the most versatile, comfortable armored clothing available.

You can wear our shirts alone or under a jacket and our pants under your favorite jeans or rain-gear.

Comfort, safety and freedom of movement. That’s what Bohn has always been about.”

—Paul English, Founder

What is the Bohn BodyGuard System?   

The Bohn Body Armor BodyGuard System™ (shirt + pants or shorts) fits comfortably under your clothes and offers lightweight, CE Level 1, low-profile armor on the shoulders, elbows, forearms, tailbone, hips, thighs, knees and shins. The breathable back protector in the riding shirts features a reinforced spine for added protection and soft, flexible padding for extra comfort.

With three riding season fabric options available (All-Season, Hot/Humid and Cool/Cold riding), and removable armor, you can mix and match the armored system to suit your riding needs, comfort and style.

The comfortable, stretchy fabric holds the armor snug to the body in the event of a fall.

It’s the ultimate, lightweight, breathable protection you have been searching for!

"I wear my Bohn armour (shirt and pants) every single time I ride. I unfortunately laid my bike down on Hwy 1 near Big Sur, CA in March of this year. However, I walked away from this mishap without a single scratch on my arms or legs because of the Bohn products I was wearing. Thank you!"

"Jim and I are all about “All The Gear, All The Time” and we LOVE the Airtex shirts.
I don’t know what we would have done without them on our Nova Scotia trip as we rode our motorcycle in sweltering heat. On that trip, I even found myself wearing the shirt without a shirt underneath, it was so hot out.
- Jim and Jean Parker

Paul English ~ 1953-1916 Founder, Bohn Body Armor

“If you’re like most riders, you like to ride in jeans. It’s what riding’s about – it just feels right. But these days you like to be protected, too.

Wearing heavy armored jackets and gear is just too much for casual riding – especially in the heat! That’s why the Bohn Bodyguard System works so well for so many riders. Our BodyGuard System™ is a snug-fitting base layer of pants and shirts with comfortable and slim armor pads built in just where they’re needed.

Cool and comfortable – even after a 12 hour day in the saddle. Discreet, too! You can’t see them underneath your jeans.

Thousands of riders just like you have trusted the Bohn Bodyguard System for more than 20 years, and enjoy peace of mind on their ride.”
