    nate, I see they have an outlet for force field in Crickhowell.If you have the action shirt do you have to buy anything to go with it to protect the ribs?
    I take it you done your ribs at some time otherwise you wouldn't know about keeping away from joke tellers. cheers

    Maybe 3 broken collar bones, a dislocated collar bone (i didn't know that one was possible until too late either!) a broken shoulder, an arm and several ribs too late for me though lol!

    That was one unlucky ride

    All over protection in one hit and fits under a jacket in winter or shirt in summer

    Much to hot for me! I use normal MX type back and front and side protection with netting over the shoulders. Super lite and lets a bit of air circulate between Jacket and shirt!

    Or as our Cap'n says, get some built in air bags...
