Questions and Answers

Q. How do I wear this shirt?
We recommend wearing the shirt as a base layer under your favorite jacket for an extra layer of warmth. It will help keep the armor close to your body in the event of an off and provide a fantastic layer of warmth to make your ride more comfortable and safe.

Q. Can I wear this shirt alone without a jacket?
A. Yes, you could. It would be great for the days when it is sunny 65 degrees and you don’t want to wear anything bulky.

Q. Does this shirt provide abrasion resistance?
A. The performance thermal shirt does not have any kevlar or Cordura in the shirt, but you will have abrasion protection where there is armor. Also, this shirt pairs really well with a flannel or your favorite riding jacket.

Care Instructions

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:

  1. Pull the fabric back on the armor pockets to remove the armor. (Note: failure to remove armor may cause damage to the fabric shell.)
  2. Wash the fabric shells on a low temperature setting and Gentle Cycle.
  3. We recommend using an activewear detergent when laundering your garments to maintain the integrity of the stretch in the fabric.
  4. Be sure not to wash Bohn fabric shells with items that have Velcro, hooks or accessories that could catch and snag the fabric.
  5. Dry shells on low temperature or hang dry.
  6. 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.

Please NOTE:

  • Our garments are made with Lycra® and must be washed regularly. Salt air and sweat left on the garment can break down the Lycra® 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 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!
