Not to hi-jack your thread but I figured it was not worth making a post of my own regarding a similar request. I am looking for a new vest as well, but one that is CGA and under $100. Haven't paid much attention to the new gear out there so if any guys have some recommendations let me know. I currently have a Jet Pilot A-10, nice vest but I just don't want to deal with the state police if they happen to come over. A lot of times when I see them approaching while I am riding I just let go of the handle and act like I am fixing my board.
