LOL, yeah I researched the crap out of things and then I bought what was available. the shops around here don't really stock much, and I think they only do an order at the beginning of the season. And when they're out, you're SOL.

Nevertheless, I think that even an "average" piece of armour will do 80% of the job, and the premium stuff moves up the final 20%. So anything's better than nothing.

Having said all that, I have Protec shin/knee pads that I really love because they have hardshell protection for both areas, a Protec spine protector that's flexy enough to move around in, and some Protec impact shorts that are crappy because they don't have a hardshell tailbone protector.

Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.
