Thanks for the much needed info. I have been battling the chest protector I have since I started riding a couple months ago. I just wish I good find some of these products to try on before I buy. Any suggestions on where to go to find them, in the Denver Colorado area?

I know what you are saying...try then buy...unfortunately on some of this gear you can't. BUT on a good note...Velocity Gear will ship for free and i know that there is a size chart somewhere. In their size listing they include what the chest measurement is as well as offering 2 lengths, which is nice for shorter torsos.

The Knox suit...sigh...is only sold in Europe...BUT they will ship here!!!! and have a printable .pdf measurement chart here:http://www.planet-knox.com/chart.pdf and have a 30 day no questions asked return policy. And if item is defective will refund shipping too.

The SixSixOne suits you can check out in stores. Call your local MX gear store and ask if they can order items from Parts Unlimited. They are the distrubuters.

EVS and AlpineStar make some too.

PS...the TT store carries these last 3 items. Starting on this page http://shop.thumpertalk.com/catalogs/Parts_Unlimited_Offroad_2005/default.asp?p=159&s=3 to the next page...

I hope this helps...ride well

I took my wife down to Performance Cycle on Broadway, 2 blks N of Evans. I just let her try on a bunch of stuff to see what she felt most comfortable in.

They are having a big clearance sale in a couple weeks, so that's a bonus.
