Care Instructions

It’s easy to wash! The fabric pockets allow you to remove armor and wash your garment like regular clothing.

Follow the steps below to ensure long lasting wear.

  1. Pull back the lip on the pockets to remove the armor. (Note: failure to remove armor may cause damage to the fabric)
  2. Wash the shells on a low temperature regular (or gentle – preferred) cycle to prevent shrinking or stretching of the fabric. Be sure not to wash garments with other garments which may have Velcro or hooks that could catch the fabric
  3. Dry shells on low temperature or hang dry
  4. When dry, re-insert the armor into their respective pockets and pull the fabric lip of the pocket over the armor. This ensures that the armor stays safely in one place during wear.

With proper care our garments have lasted our customers decades. We hope you have yours for many years to come.

If for any reason you find that you have damaged a fabric shell or need to replace a worn out fabric shell, see our fabric shells page.

Customer Questions

Q. What is the difference between the Cool-Air shirts and the All-Season Airtex shirt?
A. The difference is the fabric. (See photo comparison on right.)
The Cool-Air is made entirely from a very lightweight, almost see-through mesh while the Airtex shirts are made from a mid-weight mesh and Lycra. Both have the same armor (back, shoulders, elbow and arm) so the protection is the same.

Cool-Air is made specifically for hot and humid riding conditions and the Airtex is a great all-season option.  Both can be worn over a t-shirt and under a jacket if needed.

    Good fitQuality stitching like other Bohn protection I have purchased. Recommend you follow their suggestions for measurements and fit will be excellent.

    All Seasons.Very well made shirt, armor stays n place,doesn't move around even wen off the bike. Feels comfortable just hope I never hav to test how good the armor is. I gave the shirt only a 4 star rating because it's missing chest armor that's was only piece of armor which is very important not n the shirt. If that chest armor was n there I would buy again.

    Bohn Jersey ArmorI have owned the Bohn Armor pants for years. I finally decided to get the shirt. I am very happy with the air flow and the extra protection.
    Thank you

    YupGreat option for wearing UNDER an abrasion resistant outer shell. In my humble opinion: You'd have to be softer than a peeled grape to wear these as an outer layer. I'm 6'4 and over 3 bills and and the XXXL pants fit fine; hardly noticeable when I ride. Just ordered a shirt to go with it. Recommended.

    Nice American made product.A little hot under other apparel in the dog days of summer here in the deep south but will work well the rest of the year. Well made and came true to description.

    Double Armor Minus the DiscomfortGreat product made of high quality materials. Exactly what I was looking for on those days when it is hot and humid and the textile, mesh jacket just doesn't provide 'enough' protection; double the armor minus the discomfort.

    Good armorI am a big guy.But I managed to get into it.seems to be pretty good so far at keeping the gear in the right places.It's pretty cool so far not to hot as I would not use it if it was.overall great product to have while riding

    My Dog is Looking at Me Kinda WeirdProblem is that it’s -30 here in Winnipeg and I have to wait a bit until my first ride of the year with this new kit. My dog is looking at me kinda weird cause I’m wearing in the house lol.
    I’m going to British Columbia early May for my first long trip. My ride is a 2003 BMW GS.
    I was looking for a total system and I saw your ad in the BMW ON magazine. The price was good even though it is in US FUNDS. Ordering was really good as well , she made it really easy to order and nice to talk to. Thank you very much, keep the rubber side down!! --Mario P

    Double Armor Made a DifferenceIn September I had a spill from hitting gravel and slamming down on the top of my right should. I was glad to have my Bohn under my Joe Rocket Phoenix Jacket as double armor made a difference. Unfortunately, friction between the Bohn Lycra material and my Joe Rocket did some minor damage.The area is maybe the size of a small palm of the hand. --David A

    Under Armor System is Safest...I am convinced that an "under armor" system is the safest way to go for most general riding we do. This system keeps the pads in place so there need be no complaining of dedicated riding gear slipping etc. I simply remove the pads from my jackets and wear the Bonn Armor underneath. The mesh fabric is incredibly strong and last forever. I sweat in them as explained above yet the fabric never tears and I've given it the test for sure trying to tug the top off after sweating in them. Soooo, way to go on making this stuff durable over time...RK

    Frequently Drop in on Clients On My Way to the OfficeI am a daily commuter on the north coast of California and ride a 2005 BMW K1200S. Because I frequently need to drop in on clients on my way to the office, I don't like having to show up in a full suit of riding gear. I purchased the Bohn Adventure Armored Pants so that I can have protection while being able to wear office attire. I am very pleased with your product. The pants are extremely comfortable, the armor stays in place and best of all they keep me warm in the winter cold. This product exceeded my expectations. --David M

    Superb ProductAlthough I have not had to put your gear to a test as I recently bought them, I can attest to their comfort and fit and giving one a greater safety factor. I had a horsehide jacket that I had made for me many years ago and now am able to wear it (as it had no protection other than leather) with your shirt and under my Kevlar jeans are your pants. Just did a long trip (with no mishaps-thankfully) and I want to thank you for your superb product. --Peter M

    Everyone Should Try a SetJust got my order today. Love them! Finally protection that stays in place, and comfortable to wear. Every one should try a set, they would be sold. I am retiring next year and plan 30 to 45 day tour of the US. Look forward to living in them on my trip. Been seeing your ads in the BMW Owners News for years. Thanks for a great product. --Bryan

    My Wife Couldn't Tell I Had the Armor OnI just received my order today (Adventure pants and Air Tex shirt). I was reluctant about the fit and whether or not it really would fit comfortably under my normal clothing. The order arrived extremely fast (2-days). I tried it on, and was very impressed. I put my regular jeans and jacket it over it, and you were right! My wife couldn't even tell I had the armor on. I went for a long ride, and was so impressed with your product.
    Everything you advertised on your website is 100% true. Thank-you for designing and selling such a great product. You guys dd a great job. It's made well, fits well, and feels great. I'm very happy and impressed. Thanks! --Andy M

    I Will Enjoy Wearing ThemMy order for top and bottom came Tuesday in time for my short vacation to Hannibal MO coming Thursday this week with my two buddies. I like the fit and design. I am sure I will enjoy wearing them and hopefully never to put them to the 'real test' of a fall. Just nice knowing there is security there also. --Frederick

    200 Miles in 12° C WeatherI received my pants and shirt today. I wore them on a 200 mile run today in 12 degree Celsius weather. I must say that I was very impressed. I wore the pants under my jeans and the shirt under my leather riding jacket. After a while I forgot the pants were there that's how well they fit,they kept my legs quite warm especially the knees because of the pads, nice. The shirt felt like it belonged under my jacket and did a nice job of blocking the draft from the sleeves. I felt piece of mind in the added protection and was very comfy the whole time. I am 60 years old haven,t rode for 20 years body protection just feels right. Just getting back into it,circumstances took me out of riding but you never loose the desire once you have it. I ride a nomad 15. Thanks for a good product. --Mike E

    First Time Without a Jacket Since Sliding My MotorcycleWhat do I have to do to convince you to make a 3X tall in the Airtex shirt? I just wore my shirt for the first time this weekend. Wow what a pleasure. First time I've ridden without a jacket since sliding my motorcycle last September. I was very comfortable and had the peace of mind knowing that if something were to happen, I had a layer of protection between me and the road. The only complaint was having to keep tugging on the shirt to keep my soft white belly comfortable I love this gear and can't wait to get my pants. Keep up the good work. --Gerald C

    Thank You For Quality ProductI bought an armored shirt some 5 years ago, and had to use it yesterday in a 40mph collision with a mini van. The shirt is tore to hell but I sustained very minor abrasions around my wrist - thank you for a quality product. --Jimmie B

    I Am Impressed with the FitReceived my order today and I have to say that I am impressed how well the shirt and the pants fit. Good quality, almost feel like a super hero when I put them on. The true test will come in those hot humid NY days. I hope I never get to test its purpose, and you can ride with just a bit more confidence.
    Great friends will be jealous. --Ron

    Price is a Little Steep but Worth ItToday my wife and I rode our motorcycles for a supper run and the armor clothes were very comfortable. For someone on a fixed income, the shirt and pants are a little steep, but the protection and peace of mind are worth it. --Keith M

    Jacket is the Bomb!!Hello. I just wanted to let you know how much my best friend and I love our Bohn Jackets. We bought them about the same time a couple of months ago and wear them every time we ride. They are simply GREAT. Now my wife wants to get into the picture. She wants armored shirts and pants. I am going to have her call you to help with the sizing. My jacket fits perfectly and is extremely warm. I rode the other day when it was 40 degrees with no problem. I was quite comfortable. You forget all about the armor being there. This jacket is the Bomb!! —Craig S

    I Forgot I Was Wearing Until I Went to the BathroomI received the items that I ordered and I just want to say it is the best!
    I took my bike out for a ride yesterday morning and the adventure body
    armor shirt and pants, was so comfortable and nice that later on in the
    evening while hanging out with friends, I forgot that I was still wearing
    the gear only to find out while making a trip to the bathroom... LOL!!!
    Thank you for your support and protection of all riders everywhere. --Shondon

    ATGATT ZealotI proudly count myself amongst those zealots who cast derision upon those
    who do not wear protective gear. Mostly because their careless behavior
    parallels their lack of proper gear, results in a higher number of crashes
    and therefore injuries, and OUR insurance costs go up.

    I do however take some exception to the characterization that Aerostich
    suits are exclusively involved. Of course my Roadcrafter is my #1 riding
    apparel, as riding 200+ days a year on Long Island requires flexible gear.
    However, I do ride in a leather jacket and jeans with upon occasion. That
    is where YOUR products are involved, as I would never ride in a
    non-armored jacket without my Bodyguard shirt and never in jeans without
    my BodyGuard pants. In particular, the BodyGuard pants under Draggin Jeans
    is a great combination. And yes, I do have just as much attitude regarding
    Bohn gear under "normal" riding gear as I do about wearing the
    Roadcrafter. So there. In my book your gear justifies as much attitude on
    my part as Mr. Goldfine's. Deal with it....

    Seriously, thanks for your great products. I have not personally crash
    tested my shirt/pants on the motorcycle, but in the unfortunate event that
    I do I am sure I will have a proper testimonial regarding how it saved me
    from getting hurt. —Bob

    Adventure RiderI'm an adventure rider and when you hit the sand and mud you're gonna fall that's why they call it adventure riding. It's nice when you hit the ground being able to jump back on the bike with a few less bruises. And being able to keep cool when the ride get technical is great.-- Jerry K

    I Use Two SetsI use two sets of Bohn gear. shorts for my BMW riding gear and top and full legs for my dual sport. have mesh top, shorts and long and long winter.

    Stayed Dry, Comfortable and SafeBohn shirt worn on outside of gore-tech rain jacket over breathable T, both everyday wear, rainy day, makes great dry, reasonable cost, ATGATT ride. 4 days on the road to and from rock n roll hall of fame proved the point/value. Rained every hour. Stayed dry, comfortable, and safe. --Don R

    I'd Rather Wipe Off Sweat Than BloodI've lived through two plane crashes in my time, so I know better than to assume that bad things only happen to other people. Rather than hide from life, I've chosen to do what I can do to minimize the risks I determine are acceptable. As a result, I'm an all the gear, all the time kind of guy. I'd rather wipe off sweat than blood. --Jay H

    Can't Tell You're Wearing ItReceived my Bohn shirt and pants on Tuesday July 9th. Left Brampton ON for Thunder Bay ON on Thursday. 2 1/2 days and the armour was great. Can't tell your wearing it, but I felt so protected. I will buy the mesh shell for the pants... --Dave P

    The Three Sisters--TexasThankfully, I've never had to test my Bohn system. I ride a Honda ST1300, so I'm more of an on-road, long distance rider. I last wore the system under jeans during a Texas ride called The Three Sisters with a local HD motorcycle club. I didn't want to wear all the usual visible armor on that ride, so the Bodyguard system was perfect. Not only did nobody else see it, I barely knew it was there. I had some concerns whether the armor panels would line up in the right places. I'm 5'10" and 270#, and the whole system still fit perfectly. Very versatile and very well designed. --Shawn H

    There are Two Kinds of Bikes--Those that Have Gone Down and Those That Are Going ToMany of us motorcycle enthusiasts have heard the constant refrain from friends and other fellow motorcyclists: There are two kinds of bikes! Those that have gone down, and those that are going to go down! At this point in my motorcycling career at the age of 61, I still remain one of the latter group, touch wood...! However with this product I like the security it offers in knowing that it may lessen the seriousness of my injuries should I become a member of the former group through some unforeseen circumstance! they are easy to put on under most any pair of loose fitting pair of pants or shirts. They offer some degree of protection even from the temperature variances in the air that passes you by.That is to say they remain comfortable in hot weather and offer some degree of warmth on cooler evening rides. I am one who enjoys long distance rides and always make sure I am wearing them. I highly recommend Bohn Armour's clothing to be an indispensable part of any riders safety gear! With 42000 kms on my 2007 Suzuki VStrom 1000, my Bohn Armour gear remains tried, but not yet tested! --Paul H

    I Want my Babies to be Safe When Riding Their BabiesMy husband collects and rides classic motorbikes; Norton, Triumph, etc., I bought him a pair of the leggings after he had a bad fall on his Norton - not only did that dent his tank but it dented his pride and broke his collar bone! We were so impressed by the Bodyguard system we bought a pair for our son who also rides. A great purchase, keeps them warm and protected but you'd never guess they were wearing them! I want my babies to be safe when riding their babies! Do you make them for dogs? Our Westie likes to sit on the tank of the Honda TL125 and go up and down our street! --Gillian H

    Bohn is Proactive Against InjuryI use the Bohn Bodyguard System as a proactive measure against injury. Thankfully, I haven't experienced an accident.

    Robo Cop or BMW Rider?I ride a BMW K1600GTL, either solo or with my wife behind as my pillion. I live in Iowa and ride year around provided the ice is off the road. I wear my Bohn armor under my jeans, shirt and coat depending on the temperature. I ride with a yellow Schuberth Helmet and my favorite is to ride with a flowery shirt over my armor that matches my helmet. Gets all kinds of attention. I was approached at a Steak and Shake by a gentleman that asked if I was a Robo Cop or a BMW rider. I told him the latter. I said I dress for the slide not the ride as I once read in the Air Force Times. --Michael K

    Awesome Extra Layer of InsuranceI did a 400 mile 1 day trip up the island on my V Max. Cold, wet, sleet in places. Stayed comfy and warm in my gear (and the heated grips). Very pleasant ride once I removed the tail bone protector from my Bohn pants - it didn't 'sit well' with the Corban seat. Great to be able to make on the road adjustments like that. Shirt is comfy even under my denim jacket which has armor built in and the pants are invisible under my Draggin jeans. All goes to make up an awesome extra layer of insurance, and comfort. Thanks. --Stacey M

    Dressed Up for a Test DriveI recently drove my PU truck a few hundred miles away to take possession of a newly acquired motorcycle. Temperatures were in mid to high 90 degrees. I did not want to carry all my gears so I just wore my boots and pack my Bohn Bodyguard system along with my gloves for an eventual test drive. After agreeing for a ride with the owner I geared up and went for a spin , which lasted longer than anticipated due to the fun I was having in the back roads of NC. I though that the owner would be upset but found out that this was not the case. He said that he was impressed to see me all dressed up for a test drive and was fully confident that I would be back safely. Done deal the bike found its way to my truck, my gears in my bag and me on my way home in no time. --Alain R

    Timber Wolf Caused a SwerveI was able to get my wife out for a first time long distance tour to Montana, after explaining the benefits of your armored protective clothing.

    Protection Against TextersPurchased it because of all the idiots I see texting and driving these days. We usually take one long trip a season (800 or more miles) and wanted some extra protection. So far I have worn the system on most of my longer rides and its just what the doctor ordered. Very comfortable and can't usually be seen if we stop to go eat or walk around. Great product! --Richard G

    Cars Have Been Cutting Me OffI have a 2012 GW with 75000 miles lately cars have been cutting me off so I thought it best to buy body armor. Would have liked it more if it were in a day glow color so I could wear it as an outer garment.
