Do you want a Back protector or a combination back and chest protector.
I prefer the back protector as the combo ones get to be bulky and can limit movement.
FWIW we carry the Alpinestars in stock, but due to their MAP policy I can only post retail.


Rykoson, FWIW I normally can beat Cg's pricing on ANY Alpinestars product.

I have one like this, never crashed in it so I really can't say anymore about it other than get somthing that is comfortable and that you want to and will wear.

I think webbikeworld does some gear comparisions, you might find it and others listed on their.

Actually, we have almost all the back protection options from ALpinestars and Dainese too in stock at prices that other dealers cant touch. Come see why Houston shops at 2 Wheel Toyz.
