youtube links didn't work
The youtube links in my last posts didn't work so here they are:
661 pressure suit

I think 661 has two models of this pressure suit. I have the one w/ the foam impact absorbing material under the hard plastic shell. It works great for tree branches and rocks.

BMX riding body armor
I ride up in Tahoe and spend as much time as I can going back country. I also used to ride alot on the East Coast and this stuff works great for hitting ice patches and sliding into things.
I use the 661 pressure suit along with the 661 full face helmet. I've literally fallen the entire way down Mott's Canyon at Heavenly one winter, landed flat on my chest from up high, hit numerous tree's and rocks and honestly I have shaken it off every single time. For the $150 this stuff costs I haven't found anything that provides better protection and still gives you mobility.

I tried on the POC PVD2 body suit that is much lighter. It is supposed to harden upon impact and does not contain any hard plastic pieces. It does absorb some impact. I had the sales guy punch me. Starting softly and then punch me harder multiple times. Then I compared it to the new 661 pressure suit, and honestly the 661 suit absorbs a lot more impact so I just stuck with what I have.
I was shopping around for something that is lighter and absorbs just as much impact. I have to say that with out the hardened plastic on the chest/back/and shoulders you really do feel it more. It is a little extra weight, but I literally do get right up after a super hard crash. It's alot better than spending 2 weeks hurting and a few days out of work.

I got the new Demon d3o version 2 jacket this season.
Like you, I wanted front protection as well as shoulder/elbow/back.
I was using the POC jacket and it has great protection but was somewhat heavy.
I'm very happy with this piece. Lighter than the POC, but with lots of protection.
Just be sure to order it with the chest pad insert.
