I have the same one ! It's really nice !
I used to wear elbow guards with a chest protector before and the body armor is way more comfortable, also look better cause you can put your jersey over it. It protects more than just the chest protector.

However, one of my buddies is a physical therapist and ride dirtbikes. He told me that the best protection ever (he just got one and tried all style of body armor) is the one made by RXR that is inflatable. you put it, then inflate it and it fits your body.

can I wear it UNDER my jersey and still use a EVS neck protector Fl. woods?
I have the Thor Impact and an EVS neck brace just like Fl.woods, I wear the body armor under my jersey, and wear the EVS neck brace over the jersey.
I never tried to wear the neck brace under the body armor as I take if off often when I do breaks.

I meant armor, jersey, neck protector. not neck protector, armor, jersey lol

not quite sure how one would go about putting a jersey on over a neck brace without the use of scissors lmfao

that rxr piece sounds nice. if I get hurt with conventional armor that will be my next choice, I don't imagine shipping to HI from the BK will be very light. I think I'll throw more in weight in BP than the armor weights LOL

I have the same problem with shipping since I live in Tahiti, that's under Hawaii
My buddy talk me a lot about the Rxr (he was treating me for lumbar vertebra injury I caught landing hard on some jumps so we had time to talk lol ) and told me that shipping wasn't very expensive. And trust me, shipping to Tahiti use to be very very expensive. He's very happy with it, he told me that it was super light and he also use it with a leat brace.

thinking of getting the EVS race collar for now, to have some kinda neck protection til I get a neck brace, I really like the nitro circus neck brace since it matches my LTR black/white theme. I just gotta add some red like maybe beadlock rings and a few other subtle touches of red and it's all G but that's more long term stuff. not immediate stuff I feel I need right away..

yeah, that RXR looks bad azz but I would want the $250 one. and really, I use only a helmet, boots and padded shorts atm so it would be 10x better to wear any back/chest/neck protection lol

so for the money I'm thinkin the EVS neck collar

http://www.motosport.com/atv/product...LAR/?id=101993

thor rig SE (full suit)

http://www.motosport.com/atv/product...-SE/?id=112211

and I'm good to go for now

I think I'll get some black or black/gray gear so the dirt/mud don't ruin it anymore lol

yeah, I'm sure tahiti shipping is expensive, it ain't all that far from us in HI lol, but motosport does free ship for $99+ and then only $20 more to HI, I got my 450 bumper from them and that's all it costed iirc.. got something else too but I forget what it was.

so far their cart says for both it's $205 shipped to HI lol. my b-day is thurday so the wife is wanting to buy me the armor. possibly the neck brace I didn't show her that yet lol.

thinkin of getting myself some Max RPM beadlock fronts so I can put my 20x6x10 holeshot SXs to use on my LTR and run my mxr6 18x10s again since I have 22x7 and 20x10 holeshot XCRs on atm and they kinda make the bike feel tipsy compare to before... plus I want beadlocks lol.

these are a possibility for beadlocks $240 shipped for the fronts...

I'm picking up a used fox chest protector now off CL for $20 locally so I'll at least have something if I go this weekend. neck protection and my full suit have a little more time now lmfao.. rockymountain has the EVS neck brace on sale still for like $89.99 in blue and white. found it in another thread on here
