Hi to all members, this is my first post (as a new user and TRF member)
My wife, my son and I all use GP-Pro body armour (look it up in the on-line Demon Tweeks catalogue) - they're the mesh vest type with all the armour attached and an itegrated kidney belt.
After quite a few falls (at our local MX practice track, on a little 125 trail bike and a CRF 100), none of us have suffered and real injuries and the kit has done it's job superbly. We've also used similar kit when we were trail riding in Herts and at the Wheeldon Farm scholl a couple of times earlier this year. Worn under a lightweight jersey and jacket, they're comfortable as well.
The ones we have were only £80 each and seem, to us novices, very good value.
Hope this helps.
