Which body armor would people recommend for £65?
Its many for my back, shoulders and kidney area ,as that is wear i tend to land on in crashes.
I have been looking at the 661 Assault Pressure Suit 2011 , and Thor Quadrant S9 Roost Guard 2012 , from chainreactioncycles. Oh and i don't want them to get me to hot in summer. Any help in a decision please? Thanks

    I have used both pressure suits and over armour, both have advantages....the pressure suits fit well and offer great protection though can get a bit warm, over armour can be a bit restrictive though are easy to take off on your push ups....

    Also take a look at IXS vests, and No Fear, as some can be unzipped again keeping you cool.
