the bike jackets that fit like a second skin offer no advantage to standing shooting, either with there padding in or with it taken out, i have triedit both ways and found them to be a disadvantage, with the padding in, in the forearms and elbow area the damn things are too stiff to bend your supporting arm up correctly, and with the padding removed it isnt much better with the jacket zipped it was very difficult to even get near a decent standing position for shooting.
