Re: Interested in group buy for impact armor chest protector or back protector?

I'm interested, if you can hook the two together somehow, also how much?
Bohn makes a value one that is both a back protector and chest protector that would work well for most.

I'm hoping to get the price the socalsv riders got....
Looks like the group buy on the sv board was as follows..

$65 for chest protector ($90 retail)
$130 for back protector ($185 retail)
Plus tax and shipping.

Which if bought together would be $80 off of the normal online price.

Recovering from 5 fractured ribs (and a broken collarbone)---if these things work--it would be money well spent.

Im gonna go get one of those Dainse mesh full armout under jacket for my dirt bike endevours cuz broken ribs are a plain in the ass--much worse than the broken collarbone

Re: Interested in group buy for impact armor chest protector or back protector?

I'd go for a chest protector if it were compatible with my Bohn back protector.. $65 sounds like a great deal.

Take a look through the thread linked to the svriders board...has pics of it showing it's thickness.

Edit:I've attached the pic. The one one the right is the chest protector

Are you talking about the A* tech series? I have the A* tech series back protector. I don't see why it wouldn't work with most/all back protectors. You can just stick it in the front of your leathers.....only thing I can see getting in the way is if a particular back protector wraps around you some....then you'd have to discuss with Mike (or me) when he makes the template and describe it in your measurements.

Re: Interested in group buy for impact armor chest protector or back protector?

Is it held in place with straps? and if so, would they interfere with the back protector straps? If he says the chest protector will work comfortably and effectively with the Bohn back protector, I'm in for one .. What's the next step?
