Forcefield Body Armour

I have purchased the highest quality personal body armor to wear while riding the motorcycle. It's called "Forcefield". It protects the complete thorax, the spinal column, the coccyx (tailbone) and it protects the collar bone and shoulder, elbow, fore arm. Apparently it will withstand up to a 75 joule impact while dispersing the force over the armor. It is so tough that it can withstand repeated crashes. If it is ever damaged it will be replaced free for the life of the product. The best part is that it is non restrictive. Riding safely.

Pictures to come.

Life is a ride that should be thouroughly enjoyed. ATGATT!

Snakeboy,
Just curious that now that you have had the armor for awhile how you have liked it? My commute is about to get a lot longer and a little sketchier so I am looking at upgrading my gear. Thanks brother.

wnc/mtn=klr,

I did forget to mention the brand. It is a Forcefield. Once you get it set to you body size with the adjustable velcro its fits well. I have heard of 661, they make some nice products.
