Anyone ever try the R.E.D. kindney belt? Looking for something that will cover the top corners of your hip. It looks like it might cover. I always land on the left corner when I catch an edge.

Stolen, actually. Second bike I've had jacked in the last two years.

I have the R.E.D. Impact vest and it will take care of this issue for you. I also have the impact shorts and rail guard. They make great, lightweight, quality stuff. I am a prety firm believer in wearing good pads. It will let you step up your game big time without having to pay the big costs of it.

Ok, two questions:

(1) How noticible is the vest when you wear it? I was considering upperbody "armour", but I also I don't want to end up rocking a virtual football/hockey uniform either.

(2) How does it effect your layering for warmth? Are you just adding another layer w/the vest, or taking something else off to compensate?

If you get he right fit, it is not obvious at all. People have a tendency to view it as a thick ass foam padded bullet proof vest or something, but there not. I have the older vest and it is not horribly thick, but good enough to protect you if you biff onto your side or back off of a rail. They have articulated pads so your movement is still really great. They are honestly probably as comfortable as you can get for any kind of back and side protection and are not cumbersome at all. It doesn't provide any spectacular amount of warmth but obviously aids some to layering. I would assume that the newer ones have only gotten more comfortable and lighter weight.

*nods* Thanks for the info. I could care less if people notice or not, I more meant that question in terms of being "cumbersome" as so you rightly stated it...but sounds it's a good buy.
