    This is the one I wear, not sure how it compare's with other's tho! had about three now.
    I think they work & fit well, only broke one collar bone in one too lol!

    I use the Forcefield one, that costs about a hundered quid I think
    Its a sort of strechy zip up top, with good shoulder and arm/ elbow protection,  but possibly a bit lacking in the chest area?
    One of the best bits is how comfortable and unobtrusive it is - as at least you ALWAYS wear it then! Very Happy

    It doesn't work!
    All it does is add to the weight of the missile and increase the impact - I've tried it lol!

    Judging by the way ive seen you dismount , a full Iron Man suit will be required :bounce:

    All i'll say is see if you get somewhere to try it on , as some of the sizes are all over the place . Bit hard these days to actually do that !
