wich would you get and why? or would you get something else? Looking for something that I could use on the street and then also for the track. The slimmer fit the better.

street and track i use an A*stars smx bionic vest with the back, chest, rib, and kidney plates. it's obviously more bulky than without the chest/rib protection, but i use it on the street and track and don't even notice it when riding.

i say go for the extra protection in the chest with the Track Vest you're thinking about getting. going down hurts even more when your arms crush into your chest. could prevent some bruising or worse, broken ribs.

you may consider the smx vest. it might actually be cooler although the track vest looks pretty trick! either way -- big ups for getting protection for the street!

Icon - because DVous (or was it K?) tested it by accident. Plus, it has better chest protection.

Save yourself some big money and take a look at this Teknic
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/TEKNI...item414e936dc6
This is similar to what I use on street and track under a leather jacket.

how much bigger in suit size should one go with adding a back protector? say, your chest size is a 36 but the lengths of the 38 would be better for your height. would a back protector make the 38 a better fit, it is bulky enough to go up to a 40?

I use a back protector and a rib/chest protector. I have broken a few ribs more than once going down and it's no fun!

I've found that most suits have the foam, remove the foam and just use a real protector and I haven't had a problem with fit.
