Small Dainese unit that fits in the pocket of my Alpinestar leathers...because it's required.....I never had this kind of protective armor when I was racing and pushing the limits a hell of a lot closer then I do now.

We didn't even have knee pucks..

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Forcefield; soft protection and good coverage of the back. It's important to me as I broke my back six years ago in a bicycle race. No protection there.

The protection the Forcefield stuff offers is amazing; outclasses everything else and certainly the hard protection, which I personally would never use.

Surprisingly, I find my self agreeing with yet another liberal lawyer.

I have the Forcefield piece as well. Thin, lightweight, and very good protection.

No surprises there... Hail all liberal thinkers, the conservative ones included...

+1 on Forcefield, I use their complete under suit. Great stuff and I find that the few times I have had to call on their protective abilities, they do a good job and do not slide or ride up as you are sliding down the track.

Funny, I posted this on another site and basically got the same answer. 100% agreement.
Is the place out in SF the only place to get them in the US?

I've never seen a Forcefield back protector.
Here is what I use.
Branded as "Knox" and Technic.
Kevlar backed with a thick foam outer.

I also use Forcefield with my jackets, but on the track, it rides up on me for some reason, probably due to the tight fit of the one-piece suit. I use Dainese Wave with the suit.
