I apologize, if you have dificullty to understand me! I have poor English skills, especially grammar, but strong desire to figure out, that armor do I need.

oskar, POC looks great. Will look at their site tomorrov.

So hard to choose! I have read tons of reviews, looked at all top manufacturers sites and still not sure, what to buy. I think, that full body armor is not for active sports. So, for now my choice is:

back armor (Forcefield Pro Sub 4 Back Protector | Forcefield Body Armour and Climate Control) top rated back armor in the world

chest armor (Forcefield Race-Lite Chest Protector | Forcefield Body Armour and Climate Control) because it's designed to fit well with that back armor

elbow armor (Forcefield Limb Tube Elbow Armour | Forcefield Body Armour and Climate Control) not sure about this, maybe other manufacturers sell better hand armor...

knee armor (Forcefield Limb Tube Knee Armour | Forcefield Body Armour and Climate Control) not sure about this, maybe other manufacturers sell better leg armor...

If not Forcefield, probably I will buy Dainese armor. Their products looks like top quality, but I think little overpriced.

And don't know, if I need better shorts, because they are so expensive from those manufacturers like Forcefield (Forcefield Action Shorts | Forcefield Body Armour and Climate Control), Dainese or other top brands.

I didn't changed my mind on wrist protection. Flexmeter still nr.1 for me (Flexmeter Wrist Guards - Alps Gear)

If anyone use those products I listed above, please, write your opinion about them. Thanks!
