    Neck Brace + Body Armor fitment combos

    I have the TLD 5955 body armor and I really like it, it's extremely comfortable, fits me really well and doesn't move around at all on the trail. It's this one here:

    5955 Chest Body Guard | Troy Lee Designs®

    I'm looking for a neck brace to go with it. Right now with a FF helmet and the armor on I already feel like I have a lot of gear on but obviously I'm fine sacrificing a little comfort for the safety.

    Is anyone else running this body armor, or something similar with a neck brace? If so, what brace are you using, and how well does it fit inbetween the shoulder/chest area of your BA and the bottom of your helmet?

    I use leatt 4.5 chest protector (brace-on system) with a leatt 5.5 next brace. Good thing about the brace on system is I don't need to use the straps that come with the neck brace.
