Just received my new chest protector from Impact Armor (http://www.impactarmor.com/). It is custom made and fitted to each individual. You send him your measurements, and he'll make up a foam template for you to try on for size. Then simply give him the okay, or discuss any adjustments needed, and the final product will be ready for you.

I will be "field testing" this for the first time in 2 days at the track. As expected, the sizing is perfect, covering the bulk of my ribcage and sternum. It is meant to be worn and held in place by a snug fitting suit, as there are no straps. I zipped it inside my one piece, and it molds perfectly to the shape of my upper torso. Plus I feel like I can take a very hard blow to the chest without batting an eye.

The armor itself is perforated to allow airflow, and is enclosed in a breatheable pouch that unzips to allow removal of the armor piece.

Best part is, you get all this for $90 plus shipping. Hard to beat considering it is a custom piece of protection. Also, it doesn't hurt to know that this is the same chest protector used by the likes of Nicky Hayden and Colin Edwards.

Here is a pic...


Oh yeah, the name tag and emergency medical data card are nice touches too :01_thumbu

excellent stuff. he makes them for lots of pro racers. i had a set... and it saved me... as it did my friend... during wsmc racing. i just keep it out in the sun... to soften it up... and it fits perfect. chest and back is the way to go. he'll even put your name or # or whatever on it to personalize it... and i recall that there are color choices too.

good choice... enjoy... nick - mri

Nah, you'll be fine I'm sure. I won't be anywhere close to fast either (at least not on the streets).
