    Hi all,

    I'm looking at some racing jackets and jawbones to decide what to have as a daily wearer.
    They look quite similar to me and I have had racing jackets before
    What's the difference between them?

    The Jawbone is the first pair. Had to be discontinued due to a trademark conflict with those bluetooth things.

    So they revamped it into the Racing Jacket (which was the originally proposed name for the Jawbone).

    The Racing Jacket has removable icons, holes in the stems for a strap kit, and I believe it has relief cuts to accept a Wind Jacket gasket (not sure on that last one). Lenses and jaws are compatible with the Jawbone.

    RJ icons are larger too. Everything else is interchangeable

    yes but even the jawbones can accommodate the wind gasket without much problem. the jawbones look more aggressive i think. there are holes at the end of the racing jacket for a strap.
