Me and a friend are starting to ride DH, but were unsure of what gear we should wear. Were far from pro, but I'v ridden bikes my whole life and my friend's just starting.
Biggest thing is, were riding quite a distance from home, so safety is a concern.
Were comfortable to spend ~$350 or so on gear, but it could be more if needed.
Main question is the Full Body Torso protection, is it worth it or is it to bulky? I'd need to fit it in a backback too. Obviously i'd throw a jersey over the top of it.

I'm pretty certain on Full Face/Knee/Shin/Gloves but i'm unsure on what to do with the top of my body, i'd like to protect my elbows and arms too.
What are wrist guards like, Do they restrict alot of movement? Most of my friends have broken wrists.

P.S: I understand that riding DH comes hand in hand with injures but i'd like to minimize the risk since we are riding quite from from home.
