Neck / Collar protection

Anyone use a device to protect the neck / collar bone?
I can't find much that's not too restricting.

What about that one neck restraint system? Kinda like a HANS device. I remember Brian(bdmpastx) won one awhile back.

leate(sp) brace.
I think it only keeps the neck from over extending though. Which is definetly a good thing.

I have a Leatt, I have been meaning to test it out on the track soon, i know for the motard and dirt I'm good as it is, but for the sportbike and nsr, I think I need to do some adjustments to the brace.

looks stiff enought to just bend around you neck (use plastic in the bottom of it to keep it from flying off)

Stupid!
The long part on the top goes behind your neck. Looks like it keeps your head from being extended all the way back.
