I've noticed that a lot of the recent videos posted on this website feature riders without a vest (Specifically the bonus Defy segment with Harf and most of the shredtown stuff). Ultimately I think its up to the each individual rider to make responsible choices. However at the same time I'm troubled that many young riders may mimic the no vest style and put themselves in jeopardy. I'm bombarded by media that praises these sponsored riders as ambassadors of our sport, however I feel that their decision to ride without a vest is irresponsible and send the wrong message to impressionable riders. What do you guys think about this? Also what do you think about media outlets that chose to publish this content?.. ie magazines, production companies, and well..... this website...

I don't mean to offend anyone with this post, I just think its an important forum for discussion.
