    One of the items I don't currently wear while riding. May need to give Troy Lee a look.

    I have a soft one that goes under my jersey, its light and gives me enough protection from things like big flying insects and the guy infront of me throwin rocks.
    I caught a rock from my buddies dirt bike square in the sternum at about 60 mph. bout the size of a marble, thought i was going to die. So even if you dont ride that hard you should always think about some protection like this for all of ridings lil happenings...

    Matt not sure if I mentioned it in the review but this will fit under a jersey also since it is thin. As you said above, anything is better than nothing. Especially when riding behind guys running pit bull rockers lol.

    Thanks for posting the review, as well as your updated thoughts Butch! I never really thought I'd have a need for something like this. But reading Matt's post really brings up some good ideas! Never really thought of that end of it, with bugs stones etc. Heck, even a branch that ya dont see coming nto the trail at just the right height! Gonna defenitely have to look into something of the sort!

    Thanks!
