in 1 word, Aerostich!
Where's the mobility off-road riding requires?
Tried a R3 at their pop up in NJ a few years back; great for the road, but too restrictive for off-road IMHO...
I don't do the off roading you do but the Areostich suits have the best armor available.. I can live in my Roadcrafter day after day all day long in comfort..It's now around 15 years old, love it!
Combat boots too are the best IMHO.. Had a get off at 50 on pavement and it saved my knees and elbows, shoulder too.. still busted 2 ribs.. didn't have the back protector then..
"TF energy absorbing material. This viscoelastic material is unique because the faster and harder it is struck, themore it will resist impact. Its remarkable characteristic of stiffening in high-speed impacts yet remaining soft and moldable for comfort make it the perfect choice for protective, comfortable body armor."
this coulda been my face..
