I've not used this, but it seems to be nice stuff. The few I have spoken with that have used it like it. Maybe worth some research?

WhatTojo said. The Forcefield L2 Pro gets a very high recommendation for safety and comfort.

All good recommendations so far, just make sure it fits well.

I've only had two types, and kept using the A*.
The A* Race Air vest was great, no real complaints, but it had no chest protection.
The Icon Field Armor was good for the street, but did not fit under my leathers at the track, it rode up off my shoulders and I couldn't pick my head up.

Yea the icon one is no good with leathers. Unless you cut it and velcro it to your leathers

I use a knox contour 'race' back protector and Ride Smart taichi chest protector at the track. Fortunately, I've never had to test them.
