    X post from Turner: body armor help
    Hi, I did some resaerch but didn't find the info I was hoping for so here it goes:

    I need to buy a body armor to use for freeriding in the Alps this summer.
    I am looking for upper body protection but nicely ventilated as well. I am considering those for the time being because they are well-built and relatively reasonably priced.I think I will buy a pair of forearm guards when things get extra rocky but I don't feel like having the whole thing permanently attached to the suit.







    I like the look of the second one but the lack of protection for the shoulders bugs me.
    Any other options?

    I'd definitely check out the RockGardn flak jacket if i were you www.rockgardn.com

    well ventilated, not crazy expensive, good protection, and the arms are detachable
