    Chest protector

    Hi all,

    I'm currently wearing a 661 FF, Fox Titan chest protector (short sleeve), POC elbow pads and MACE knee/shin pads. I've had 3 bad falls this year as I keep pushing my limit on very technical steep terrain (I don't do much jumps or large drops). All 3 times I've landed hard on my side where the Fox Titan chest protector has no padding/armor....must've really bruised my ribs. This last crash I think has pretty much finished me for the rest of this season as it takes me nearly a month to heal each time....hurts like hell coughing or sneezing. I'm looking for something else that offers a little more protection on the side ribs area as I keep pushing myself. Was thinking of the Troy Lee Designs one? Any other recommendations?

    I run the Troy Lee 5955 and love it. Comfortable, side protection, works great w/my Leatt, even mounted my GoPro to it. Surprised I don't see more of them. I run it on top of my Jersey.
