    Default body armour

    Hi everyone,



    I thought about getting some body armour for this season but there seems to be so much out there at various prices I was just wondering if anyone could shed any light on the differences in types. Are there any makes I should avoid, or any particularly good ones?



    Cheers





    Nick

    Nick - i've gone for some downhill mountain bike stuff made by 661, called a pressure suit (not the assault pressure suit) dianese also make similar, i know at least one other hoverer who's used it and likes it - i think i paid about 120



    it's not as rigid as the moto x stuff and is vest like with the pads attached, it also has a spinal protector

    I just came on to put up a link to a company I've been shopping at today, and found your posting:

    Their own brand roost jacket is one of the best I've seen and is articulated to avoid abdominal bruising (plus at a very good price), but the extreme is fabulous value, you hardly know you're wearing it and it's half the price of Dainese



    Having raced DH mountain bikes, I know what a lot of those guys are wearing and this type of suit gives freedom of movement for very little more than a traditional deflector. Can't recommend them enough
