Options are limited for gear yet at the few bike shops on the mainland that are within an hour away... but was wondering for those of you out there who bother to wear a back protector, and have a shorter torso like me, what brands are you using?
I mainly ride with my full one piece leather suit on - and if not I've got a leather jacket and jeans on... my leather suit has a bit of room to spare but I'm looking for something fairly thin. When I bought the suit it fit literally like a second skin around the middle, but has bagged out a bit since, with a season on the street and a few track days use out of it.
I probably won't be needing anything 'track-savy' this is just for my own protection for long bike trips, highway speeds, that sorta thing.
At the mo, I'm looking at the Alpinestars Bionic back protector, has a kidney belt as well as shoulder straps which I hear come in handy as they prevent the back protector from sliding down as you're putting your suit on. Anyone use this particular one? How tall are you and how's the length suit your torso?
