    Protective: Axo vs. Fox vs. Rockgardn

    I am looking for a full upper body protective solution. Seems like the following are all about the same price:

    Axo Air Cage Pro
    Fox Launch Suit
    Rockgardn Flak Jacket

    Anyone have any experience/advice on these or other brands?

    Flak Jacket. I pretty much did a lot of research on armored gear after I cracked two ribs at Plattekill and ended up with the Flak, in the begining felt overkill and bulky but then after a couple nasty crashes I knew it was the most valuable piece of gear I own, that and my TLD helmet.
    The only thing I didn't dig are the arm pads, I guess that at Rockgarden they focused more on the core itself that did not pay too much attention to the arms, oh well, I wear it with my 661 arm pads and couldn't be happier.
    You should also consider the Race Face armored vest, it looks sweet, and costs around the same price.

    Flak Jacket gets another vote. Customer service at RG is the tops. Give'em a call, they'll take care of you. Who better to fit you to a jacket than the designer himself.
