Also check out the Fox Raptor chest protector. I didn't care for the shoulder and bicep piece and took those off but the rib protection is EXCELLENT. You could take the heel of your hand and strike yourself in the ribs and would hurt your hand and not even feel it on the ribs. Chest and back protection is also really tough. It's already saved me from a large branch straight to the chest that knocked me off the bike when I flew off of a steep trail and landed in a trees canopy mid air on the bike. Scary!! Not even a scratch on me. It would've been really bad. I won't ride without it. It's an over the jersey protector.

I need one of those vests! Was good for 2 weeks and decided to crunch some other ribs on a nice rock just to see how they liked it.
Felt like a bad bruise when it happened even kept riding ...until 2 days later. amazing how they get way worse before they get better.
