Body armor, dainese ultimate vs action

I actually ordered the action jacket because i tried something very similar to it (maybe a newer version, or maybe older i don't know) with minor cosmetic differences.

Dainese - ACTION PROTECTION W2 - Multisport Winter - America - Inglese

But i later noticed this one,

Dainese - ULTIMATE JACKET - Multisport Winter - America - Inglese

Seems like it's got all the same features,plus this thing on the chest, which i presume is removable. I think i still have time to change my mind, so any feedback on these two would be nice.

I own a very similar jacket, the Alpinestar Bionic 2 protection jacket (Bionic 2 Protection Jacket - Alpinestars Official Store)

I haven't ridden in it yet.... so you'll have to wait a week or so for me to tell you how it fares

I've never heard of this company. I must admit it looks pretty neat. The split along the chest seems like it wouldn't hamper mobility. Had i known about this i would have considered ordering this one.

Although, i was able to try the one i ordered in person, maybe thats the safest bet.

Alpinestars has been around for a while. They actually used to make ski stuff (hence the name), but have branched out. Their motorcycle gear is what they are known for nowadays (boots, jackets, etc)
