    Body Armor

    I looking for some durable body armor for my upperbody including spine protection. Price is not an issue, lightweight and being able to move in it is. Anyone have some advice?

    For knees and elbows what are you guys using? Anyone using the POC or 661 evo stuff? How is it?

    This days I am pretty sure all armor is built to last. There's been several threads over this subject which you may want to check out. Use the search up on top and type "armor"

    I think that your best bet would be to go to a bike shop and try different armor on and see how it feels on you. You're going to have a much better idea of what you're looking for if you can actually put it on and move around a bit and see for yourself how it feels for you rather than going off of other people's opinions online.

    Beware of FOX armor - sizing is way off toward the small side, good if you can get the right fit.
    Thor is nice.
    Dainese is nice.
    Check the MX sites for good deals.
    Also check Ebay, lots of armor avail. especially from overseas at good $$ - just make sure of correct size before ordering from overseas.

    I love my Fox armor, but DustyBones is right, the sizing is weird so you have to try it on. One of my local motorcycle shops is carrying it now, which means I guess that its good for moto too.
