Back/Chest Protector

How many of you guys wear it for road use? I'm fixing to buy a Dainese jacket that doesn't have either one, and just need some feedback to see if I should size up and add more protection.

Thanks!

I use one under my Joe Rocket jacket, it gets a lil hot, but I dont like to ride without it, specially the chest plate. I do the same with knee/shin pads, ATGATT, would be the easiest way to say it.

One size up in the jacket should accomodate both plates, right?

+1 I use it with a size plus and I can feel the jacket flapping when I pick up some speed, when I use my size, it feels a little snugg, but is cool like that, so better try it on first.

I learned the hard way.

Fitment is always different throughout the brands. Seems like there is no set standard
