    Rockgardn armor

    I'm 6' 3" as well, but I'm a clydesdale @ 235 lbs. They had an XXL/3XL that still seems tight. I read the reviews and the 661 ran tight....blah, blah, blah
    After a couple of months searching, I found Cambria to have the best price. Not to say it hasn't changed since then. That was in March. Try typing it into Google and see who's got it. Price Point, Jenson....the usual suspects. Sometimes I find stuff that's on back order on one site. I'll make someone with price matching give the the price.

    Good luck

    Universal Cycles,
    I do business with these guy all the time and usually if it dosn't fit they will let you return it.
    You need to messure your chest this will give you the size you need go to rockgarden site and look for the size chart. I have a 48" chest and wear the xxl/3x it is still a little tight but stays put. Make sure you beef up the rib pad as I borke 2 ribs wearing mine 2 weeks ago.

    ride-this.com has them on sale. Don't know if that is the best price or not. I am 6'1 at 225 and wear a XL and it fits great. Call the folks at RG, their customer service is great. Often times you will talk to the owner directly.

    and the transition bottlerocket looks just like a heckler too, huh? your a tool, the Azonic armour isn't even close to Dainese, say nothing of it being an exact copy.

    Knowledge is key.....Maybe you should think before you post (he he he)...not even close...maybe compare to the Dianeese top of the line

    Oh yeah that's a much better comparison!?!?!? Again not even close, unless your just counting the body color and labels, they hey it's a perfect match.

    Well if you didn't seem like a total [email protected] before, you do now. Thanks for validating my earlier point.

    Thank you!

    I was going to tell the guy he was a piece short of a puzzle, but it wouldn't have came out so nice and friendly.

    The Azonic is JUNK compared to the Dianese. Wear them. Anyone who has worn both could not say otherwise and be sane.

    Although I can't afford Dainese, I'd like something as comfortable as possible so which one is better, Azonic or Rockgardn ??

    They both have issues. The Azonic tends to ride up a bit more than the RG. The pads fit me better on the Azonic, but the pads on the RG are better. I wore the RG for 4 days a weeks, 6 hours a day all winter long. My friend wore my Azonic. They are both decent units. If you wear them all the time, the pressure points that bruise don't hurt all the time as you get used to it.

    i have the RG and saw the azonic up close.. difference is negligible at best... I opted for RG because it could be ran short sleeve and without the back protector.
