AlpineStar Protector Help

I originally got the large tech series, but it rode up under my suit and hit my neck. I supposedly have the medium, now. But, I am having the same problem with it riding-up and interfering with my helmet.

A. Would someone verify my size, please? It says 510mm. It has 7 plates and 6 black center connectors.

B. How do you keep these things from riding-up and chopping your neck off and/or hitting your helmet and stopping you from raising your head all the way?

I have tried it under two different outfits with all other back protection removed.

I think I'm still about 6' tall. Maybe I shrunk over xmas????

You must not have the straps tight enough. I'm about the same height, have the large and it's fine.

I'm just over 6' tall and mine fits perfect...right after zipping my leathers, I tilt my head all the way back and it settles right into the perfect spot...
