Chest protector thickness - Knox vs. Forcefield

I currently have the Knox chest protector, and although I like it very much, I do find it to be on the thick side. I am curious if the Forcefield Race-Lite chest protector is any thinner? If so, by how much?

I am finding that with the Pro Sub 4 back protector and Knox Chest protector, it adds quite a bit of "bulk" under my jacket.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
jp129

Since you've gotten no replies, I'll chime in that I too have a Knox Chest Protector. It's pretty thick as you said. I've not worn the Pro Sub, but I've seen them. It is thinner -- basically it's the same material as their back protector. It doesn't look like it conforms, but rather bends.

Thank you for your reply. That confirms part of my assumption. From the pictures it does look like it's thinner but I wasn't sure since pictures can be deceiving.

If I could get measurements, that would be fantastic. I'd like to know how much thinner it is and if it's significant enough to buy a second. Coverage & comfort, I doubt the Race-Lite will be as good as the Knox, but I am willing to compromise to have less bulk for street riding (I wear both BP/CP on the street).
