[QUOTEInterested to hear that the long sleeve is more comfortable. Is it hotter in warm weather? I'd rather be warm than cold of course.QUOTE]
Can't say I noticed a big difference in warmth between the two. The covering of your torso and shoulders is the same so I don't think the extra sleeve length and padding makes a big difference. But the elbow and forearm pads were really comfortable and made the whole piece seem complete on your upper body - full protection.
BTW, I wear flexmeter single-sided wrist guards with this set up as well. As I said, full protection.

Like all protection it is not a cure, just a helping hand...
It was probably my scariest day on a snow board, and i was riding an SBX course and got way out of shape over a big whoop and landed face down... Looking back it was funny, but at the time it really hurt...

Interestingly, I bought the long sleeve version near the end of last season (can't remember why right now) and actually found it MORE comfortable than the short sleeve version! I was very surprised because I thought it would feel more bulky, but it fits really well and the extra elbow AND forearm protection is no encumbrance - actually feels more secure.
It can easily replace a mid layer in your riding gear.
Strongly recommend this for anyone considering body armour.

I have been wanting some armor for awhile. End of last season (October) I got this FlexForce X D30
I didn't get a chance to use it until the other week at an indoor snow center. It is a little bulky and quite warm but it works nicely. The shoulder and elbow armor do move around a bit but there are straps to tighten the sleeves to help prevent this. I can't wait to try it on the proper snow. My mates think im a bit of a dick for buying it. I don't care much what they think! You can't really notice it under the jacket (you just look more of a muscle man :P)
Next on my list are these Men's Flexforce X D3O Long Pant
Having a hard time finding them in NZ though. Right now landing on my knees/ass hurts. Landed on my back/shoulder a few times at the indoor place with none of the usual impact pain.
I should add that I am a fan of D3O. Nice and flexible until impact.

Forcefield Extreme Harness Flite | Forcefield Body Armour
While offering protection, it is not a cure for pain, i cracked 5 ribs broke 1 while wearing this, but the plus side is that it does not wear out like traditional body armour...
It is easily cleaned by sponging down, but is a little bulky and can be a bit restrictive...
I wear this on mad days through the trees, sbx, learning rails etc, but otherwise just out chilling with mates on a lazy day, then i use this...
