A* Tech Back Protector and A* GP Tech Gloves
Just got my grubby little hands on both the A* Tech Back Protector and A* GP Tech Gloves.
The A* Tech Back Protector is awesome. The only comparison I have is to the JR back protector and there is no comparison at all. The A* back protector offers superior protection compared to the JR. It is a well put together package that I can't imagine ever wearing a JR back protector ever again.
As for the A* GP tech gloves. Holy moly, let's talk about awesome! These gloves are replacing a pair of 2.5 year old JR Speed Master gloves. The A* gloves are again far superior to the JR gloves in every facet. The stitching is detailed, fit and comfort is 10x better, the leather is better quality. The leather of the JR glove compared to the A* gloves feels like I'm wearing paper gloves!
Really glad I spent the extra dough on the A* equipment. I can definitely see a huge difference in quality and foremost protection. If anyone is on the fence about purchasing the A* Tech Back Protector or A* GP Tech gloves, you should go for it. I'm pretty sure that you won't regret it. Of course the only problem is that they are so damn pricey! But you get what you pay for and you are paying to protect your body.
