Full armor jacket or Outer shell with underarmor?

Im shopping around for a new jacket. I dont have a leather and am looking to get one. I currently have the Icon Timax2 Nylon. Its a very nice and comfy jacket.

A leather that's been really catching my eye is the Timax2 in leather. I found it on ebay for $295. It's $600 msrp.





My other option, which is what im torn between...is if I get undearmor and a nice leather outer shell jacket ..the armor is similar to this:

...well I like adequate armor, and the Timax 2 Leather def looks to have adequate protection IMHO...

I've been looking at replacing my Joe Rocket for a while and finally took the plunge.

I went to Fall River MA and got custom fitted at Vanson. I was suprised how much thicker the leather on the Vanson was compared to the Joe, and my cousins Icon jacket. Night and day difference, but so was the price.

I dont like the under armour , it always seems like it would move around if you got into a spill.
