I'm thinking about buying one, but wanted to see what you guys think.

Desto, have you used one. I think you are right about them making improvements on them because I once had a discussion on TT with a guy who had one and loved it. I'll have to search for it.

You've used both and like the Azonic better?
I like the fact that it is cheaper by about $100.
When did you have the Dainese Safety Jacket? I understand that they made improvements to help with past issues with longevity.

The protection is great!!! You also get 2 types of show shoulder cups with the UFO one!

I have the FULL (knee guards too) version from about 4 years ago. I do love it as it has saved me soooo many times from brusies and scrapes. There are a couple of downsides though.
- Mine is the old version with a lycra-type suit which all the cups are sewn on too. It is WAAAAAAY hot in summer.
- Its kind a difficult to clean well
- The lycra suit part has stretched.
I had a look at the newer ones and I would buy one again...they seem to have a really wide open mech now which MUST be cooler and the stitching looks much better.
The alround protection for a dumbass like me with a 9-5 job a wife and kids is exactly what I need.
Next time around (next year) I will probably buy the suit you showed with separate knee protection.
