I don't know if they would send to the USA but I get all my riding gear through them. Shoot them an email and find out.

I want to get some body armor for my girly but I am worried about being too bloody hot. Humidity is always 80 - 100+% here so sweat ass off.
Dririder have got great reviews - Australian Dirt Bike Mag tested it here jan '05.
Hydration - simple idea! saves lugging pack around.
Versatility - rain, hail, shine. even hot days it breathes so well, you don't have to take it off.
Watertight - the waterproof liner works so well you'll be amazed!
Durability - scraped trees, bushes. Doesn't tear or scuff. It also washes up well.
They didn't like:
Tight fit - tight across shoulders, around torso, under your arms. Suit narrower body shapes or just order bigger!
No zip off sleeves - no problem but sometimes bare ams feel nice.
Style - colour combo's and design a bit dated.
