FF helmet. Always.
Armored gloves, boots and armor mesh jacket in the summer.
Textile jacket with armor, heated gloves in the winter and kevlar reinforced jeans all the time.
The thing that sucks about the "winter" in Arizona is you need cold weather gear going to work and warm weather gear coming home!
