    Body armor that fits well with Leatt

    I posted this in the apparel and protection but its not getting any attention and hoped I could get some responses quickly. I'm going to snowshoe next weekend and trying to get everything ordered this weekend.

    Anyone got a recommendation for body armor that fits well with a Leatt brace? Preferably also has elbow pads with it. I used it with the alpinestar and fits well in the back but in the front you cant zip it up with the leatt under it so it makes the fit kind of tough. Not sure if any armor wont have this problem.

    Also I plan on getting the lizard skins knee and shin pads unless anyone thinks the reviews are really misleading

    Thanks

    six six one has the core save that they say is made to work with the leatt
    :: SixSixOne Protection ::

    Not sure how much better that is that something not made to work with it

    Just wandering if there is anything that fits really well with it or any that doesnt. I could see how some armor in a bad spot could make the fit worse. Wish there was something that could go over the front of the brace to help hold it and keep it from moving. Just trying to avoid having to return stuff since theres no shops near by to try stuff on

    It does not exist,other then knee pads on occasion I prefer to where nothing else,upper body protection is restrictive and in my opinion is counter active and gives a false sense security,riding without inspires confidence and have to pull it off attitude.

    Where I live I pretty much have to make a trip to do any kind of DH riding. I'm just trying to make sure that none of my vacations ever get cut short because of something avoidable. I dont ride anything I think I am going to crash on. Crashes just happen. Sometimes its a freak accident you cant see coming.

    Might just have to get them separately. How does the TLD compare to more of the traditional kind of body armor it looks more like a motox hard shell style protector?

    Kind of leaning towards the TLD CP 5955
    Anyone know how fast they ship from their online store?

    The TLD is not as hot and restrictive as say 661 pressure suits and Fox suits that I have worn. It is lightweight and breathes well.

    I use the 661 Coresaver with my Leatt brace and I fits perfect. You can remove one or two of the upper spin plates so the brace lays nice and flat. the front chest protection is thin and the Leatt comes to just the top of that. Also no problem. I find the Coresaver light and breathable. It is a nice piece of gear that does not feel over engineered or bulky.
