Mrs Uber is after some body armour as she’s really pushing her riding at the moment and has the occasional tree-hugging episode 🙂
Originally we were just looking at elbow pads (she wears 661 Kyle Strait knee pads) – but we ended up getting a small 661 Subgear top as it looked like a good setup with shoulder, chest and elbow pads. Unfortunately it seems very biased towards male riders with broad shoulders and narrow hips – so it doesn’t fit very well. We’re considering getting it altered, but I’d like to see if any of the STW female riders have any ideas.
She’s not after a full pressure-suit setup, but would like something that’s comfortable to wear and offers a bit of protection.
Thanks for the suggestions – I’ll check them out! I wear a Forcefield back protector on the motorbike so I know how good that stuff is 🙂 The Rockgardn stuff looks interesting too, CRC are still stocking their gear…
The Rockgardn stuff is pretty good – I’m on my second flak jacket after a really stupid crash that would probably have been air ambulance material without it. It seems like a proper women’s fit, as well; none of the men’s stuff I tried was anywhere near as comfortable.
