i like my forcefield. its gotten high ratings from both here and in europe.

one thing to be sure is that it all fits in your leathers. armor takes up a good deal of space, things will stretch and flex a little but make sure it all fits.

Nursing cracked ribs right now makes me wish I had a chest protector when I went down... a lot. Can't recommend getting as complete torso protection as possible to everyone.

I have used it.

Get the Forcefield Extreme Flite. Comes with back and chest protection. It is reusable in the event you crash. Many others are instructing to buy new one.
The most comfortable one I have owned so far. Is like a vest with a cummerbund for torso, with shoulder Velcro for adjustment and moves with you as you ride. Best money I spent on protection. You can get these for about 250 new if you look around.

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?
