I went into the motorcycle accessories shop the other day and noticed that most of the jackets with "standard" padding have very thin pads compared to my old Alpine Star jacket. The salesperson told me that that's the direction jacket design has been headed in lately. Is this true? The salesperson insisted it's just as safe, but I feel safer with my old jacket b/c the padding feels almost twice as thick.

Are new jackets less padded?

Hadn't noticed but there are standard for CE armor so as long as the standards are met it shouldn't be a problem. I tend toward hard armor anyway.
