If your lookin for some real nice body armor I just got the new Rockgardn Flak Jacket. So far I really like it, the for arm and elbow sections are removable and so is the back protector. It also works with most neck braces and collars.

Hey Guys
just saw this thread and I gotta say It's absolutely amazing how some peeps will get on a bike and get aggressive with next to nothing but their skin and a helmet....and sometimes not even that. Anyway being an old fart, owning a business, and having an 8 year old, I knew that I needed to be able to walk away from almost any wreck I could get myself into.

The last one I had pinned in third as I clipped a tree, my quad took 3-4 good bouces as it chased me 30+ feet down the trail before it finally bounced over me and broke my rib....through a Thor Chest protector! My Doc said that it was a miracle hat I didn't break my pelvis/hip+++. That's when I decided to look a little deeper into the protection industry myself and found a company in Canada that manufactures safety vests for competition snow-mobilers. Imagine getting pounded or run over by one of those! , So long story short I saw them being featured on Dirt Trax Television whom Tekrider had confered with to design an "off-road" vest for quad/bikers as well. I ended up ordering one, and I've gotta say that it's a phenomenal vest. It's totally plyable to fit the individual and gives protection alll the way aroung the body including...the ribs and the tailbone along with all the rest of what's important . It's comfortable to ride in and possibly offers the most protection of any that I have sen or tried.....and indeed, priced accordingly. It is however worn on the outside of your jersey and is made both to fit either with a Leatt brace or without one. You will still need to wear your own elbow-forearm guards though.

The company as I mentioned is Tekrider and you can find them on line. They have phenominal customer service and will do almost anything to truly satify ther customers....including putting Ashley out front to deal with them.... They went out of their way to get me a perfect fit since I'm shaped a little differently than my peers. Every now and then they have a -really good intro sale and give a really decent discount. I told em that I'd spread the news across the border, so if your interested in one tell 'em Gary from Missouri sencha. They'll prolly make you a decent deal....
