    My GF's bought Hein Gericke trousers and jacket off the bay and they have like a soft gel armour in them which seems like it will be really comfortable.

    I have searched the net for something similar and also asked around in several bike shops but can't find similar anywhere!!!

    I wear kevlar jeans for the ride to work (saves me having to get changed when I get there) but I have taken the armour out as it was just too uncomfortable - I know this isn't wise though so want to find some of these soft gel one's instead.

    Anyone know where I can get them?

    You can get those gel ones from Hein Gericke themselves, is it the ones with simples on the back?

    Just took one out and sure enough it's an official Hein Gericke one. I will look into getting some direct.

    Ok found them direct on HG's website but my mate has just told me that there's a HG shop in Leicester so we are going to pop over on the bikes this morning and check it out.
