- Body Armour
this new Alpine Stars top potentially looks quite good:
Anyone tried it?Posted 4 years ago
I am looking for a bit of extra protection than just my usual knee pads for uplift days and wondered if anyone has any experience of the different body armour available. Ideally something that gives back / shoulder and rib/chest cover.
I was thinking about the TLD 7850
Any suggestions?Posted 4 years agoarocheMember
Bluegrass Grizzly all the way.
Anything else I had never came close, – too much like american footballer attire. With this one, it’s good and tight too (light and stretchy), so people nearly wouldn’t notice you’re wearing armour.
Has d30 back and shoulders and lightweight foam on the chest. You’d nearly forget you’re wearing it sometimes. Throw on some elbow pads if/when you feel you need them.
The problem with a lot of the other ones is that they’ve bugger all protection for your back. Most other injuries will heal up ok, – but if you mangle your back you’re F-ed.Posted 4 years agofuzzheadMember
I’ve got one of these (albeit in a slightly older version). 661 Core Saver.
Good back protection plus a bit on your shoulders and chest to take the sting out 😉Posted 4 years ago
