    Body armour vests / shirts

    Looking to get a protection vest or shirt as I recently broke my left collarbone and looking to protect it a bit when I get back to riding. Been looking online and two that seem to fit the bill are the TLD BP 5850 short sleeve shift, and the Leatt 3DF body vest.
    Main difference looks like the TLD also has shoulder protection, but the Leatt looks to have better back protection.

    Can anyone comment any more on these? Or recommend any others? Never worn armour before so want it to be comfortable enough that I don't notice wearing it.

    It's for the Megavalanche in July.

    I just picked up a raceface flank core ambush protector shirt. It has foam chest protection and it has removable d3o padding on the shoulders and back. I have a pack with a back protector, so I just run the shoulders. I'll try it for the first time on an enduro race this weekend. So far, it fits really well with a backpack on and the shoulder pads are in a comfortable place.

    I have an Alpinestars Paragon. I like it so far.
