chest protector
« on: June 12, 2014, 06:40:36 AM »
I've seen this discussed in the past, but with times and quality changing was just wondering what racers are using and getting along with the best, and what has not proved to work so well

I used a Joe Rocket motorcycle suit, felt safer than the chest protectors I had used, took some good tumbles with them to.

This is what I use. Protection for almost everything, light weight and it's mesh so it's not hot to wear.
