    I’ve got an old 661 pressure suit but am just checking out some of the body armour now available (with an eye on my trip to Whistler Bike Park in 6 weeks).

    I like the idea of the soft body armour – I already have knee pads of this type and they are way comfier.

    I’ve been looking at the Forcefield Pro Shirt – no annoying velcro and it’s allegedly very breathable – but I’ve heard that before! Anyone tried it? Wondering what it’s like comfort wise when I’m sweating away?

    This is for DH – not pedalling around in.

    You boys need to bring your xc bikes and hit some trails!!
    We can still get you to the GLC for post ride beer 😉

    There’s been too much spending on big bikes BearBack!! (not by me).

    I’m gonna bring the big bike but am planning on hiring something for a couple of days pedalling…

    I’ve been using Forcefield stuff for 2-3 years – always been really comfortable and I’ve never had a problem overheating in it.
