N00b gear choice question
Hey, new guy here - seeing all the horror stories and squids on the street here has made me a bit gear paranoid. Got some recommendations? I've got a Scorpion EXO-400 helmet already, here's what I plan to get with my bike:
jacket - Scorpion stinger
pants - scorpion XDR awe
boots - puma Flat2 V2
gloves - A* GP Pro
Any recommendations for shin guards and back protector? I've been looking at stuff from this company called POC Sports, tho its a bit expensive. Any counter suggestions or experiences would be appreciated!

+1 for choosing to wear gear!
Your choices are all fine, although you are sure to get differing opinions.
The gloves are pretty pricey for the street but if you are OK with that you can't beat A*'s.
Consider Forcefield Body Armor for the back and leg protectors. Again not cheap but they are very good and they are soft, so they conform to your body. Downside may be a little heavier than some.
Good luck and remember 2 things.
1) Some gear is better than no gear.
2) You can cool off faster than you can heal up!
