SIZING QUESTIONS? Confused about your size, in between sizes or need assistance? Please give us a call 704-663-0351 or email us at [email protected] We will get back to you quickly.
MEN: Measure under arms around the fullest part of the chest. Be sure to keep tape level across back and comfortably snug—not loose or tight. If you are unsure of your size, give us a call or email and we’ll be happy to help. 704-663-0351 or [email protected] WOMEN: Our sizes are unisex, so please note: Your bra size is your chest measurement. For example, if you are a 36 C, you’re likely between a Small or Medium. Our shirts will fit differently on Apple or Pair body shapes too. If you carry your weight up top and in your belly and in your arms, you may want to go up a size. If you carry your weight on your hips and legs, your bra measurement usually works well.
Please don’t hesitate to call for a custom fit over the phone with a female. We want you to get your size right the first time. TIP: You may also choose to add a “Fabric Shell” to your order in another size (please indicate the size you would like at checkout in the notes) and then return the one you don’t fit into. We’ll refund you as soon as we get that one that doesn’t fit back.
(Sleeve, Front and Back measurements are notto be used for sizing. These measurements are simply helpful for our customers with longer or shorter torsos and arms.)
Order an extra:Fabric Shell so you’ll always have one clean and ready for your next ride.

Q & A
Q: What type of protection does this shirt offer me?
A: Our Cool-Air Mesh Motorcycle Riding Shirt offers protection on the back and CE-Level 2 protection on the shoulders, elbows and forearms. You also will have an option to upgrade to the Level 2 back vs. a foam pad which is standard.
Q: Will the fabric tear or rip when I put it on? It looks delicate.
A: No, this fabric should not tear or rip when putting it on. It is actually quite strong but lightweight. With just a little mindfulness, this shirt can last for decades and provide long-lasting protection. Just ask the 1000s who already own one. We always recommend putting on the shirt with care and be careful not to tug too quickly to avoid undue stress on the seams. We also recommend that you wash this garment often and do not leave salt residue from salty air or sweat on it for long periods of time. Like any fabric, the salts can eat away at the stretchiness of the material.
Q: Is this shirt abrasion resistant?
A: The main design function of our Cool-Air Shirt is impact protection. While the armor pieces do offer you some abrasion resistance in a fall, the shirt itself is not reinforced with Kevlar® or Cordura®. Our goal with our shirts is to keep the armor right where you need it, if you need it. The armor stays snug to your body and won’t flop around like other riding shirts / jackets do.
If you are concerned with abrasion resistance try pairing the shirt with a lightweight Kevlar® jacket, sweatshirt or hoodie.
Q: Do you wear a shirt under this shirt?
A: That is a personal choice that we leave up to our customers, but most riders choose to wear an undershirt or t-shirt as a base layer beneath their Cool-Air for cleanliness, hygiene and modesty reasons. Remember, the shirts are somewhat “see-through.”
Q: What is the difference between your Airtex and Cool-Air Shirts?
A: The All-Season Airtex Armored Shirt is made from a breathable mid-weight mesh fabric on the front, back and arms with a stretchy Lycra® fabric at the shoulders, elbows and wrist. The Cool-Air Shirt is made entirely from a stretchy, lightweight elastic mesh material. Both types of shirts have shoulder, elbow / forearm and back armor. Airtex Shirts have consistently been popular among our all-season riders. The Cool-Air Shirts are popular for people who ride in very hot and humid climates.
Q: I am in between sizes, how do I know which one to choose?
Great question. If you are in-between sizes or you are having trouble fitting into our size chart, give us a call 704-663-0351 or email us at [email protected]. We are more than happy to help. Indicate your waist, inseam, height and weight if you would like.
Another option: Oftentimes customers will order one size fully armored and then a fabric shell in another size and return the fabric shell of the one that does not fit. This saves time and money in the long run should you order the wrong size.
We do ask that you contact us via telephone or email to request an RMA number and let us know which size you are sending back. This helps to expedite your return within our facility.
Q: I want to order for a friend but I am not sure of their size. A: If you are ordering for a friend, give us a call – 704-663-0351. We can help size that person or you can always opt for a gift certificate.

NOTE: PLEASE USE YOUR CHEST MEASUREMENT FOR SIZING
TO MEASURE CHEST: Measure under arms around the fullest part of the chest. Be sure to keep tape level across back and comfortably snug—not loose or tight.
(Sleeve, Front and Back measurements are not to be used for sizing. These measurements are simply helpful for our customers with longer or shorter torsos and arms.)
CHEST – INCHES
CHEST – CM
Our pocket design enables you to easily remove the armor and wash your fabric shells for years of use.
Follow the steps below to ensure long-lasting wear and care:
Pull the fabric back on the armor pockets to remove the armor. (Note: failure to remove armor may cause damage to the fabric shell.)
Wash the fabric shells on a low temperature setting and Gentle Cycle .
Be sure not to wash Bohn fabric shells with items that have Velcro, hooks or accessories that could catch and snag the fabric.
Dry shells on low temperature or hang dry.
When dry, reinsert the armor pieces into their respective pockets and pull the pocket flaps into place. This ensures the armor will stay in place.
Our garments must be washed regularly. Salt air and sweat left on the garment can break down the stretch in the garment so it is imperative that the garments be washed regularly and not stored for long periods of time with salt or sweat.
Also, pilling and runs can occur if the garment is consistently rubbing against something that agitates the garment (ie. tag, plastic, loose seam, etc.), so please be certain you do not have anything that will agitate the fabric. If you start seeing pilling, turn your jeans, pants or jacket worn over your Bohn garment inside out and feel for the item that is rubbing on your garment.
**Improper care (ie. lack of laundering) and pilling of garments is not warrantied.
With proper care, our garments can last years. We wish you many years of riding protection!
