Chest Protector to use with Leatt

What chest protector are you using with your Leatt? I currently use a 661 that I expand to fit over the Leatt. Does it work? Yes. Is it the best set up? NO, the chest protector once expanded is very loose on my body. I need to look at a different option. What are you using?

I don't wear a neck brace, but tekvests are made to work with them. Far better protection than the plastic junk, and way more comfortable than any pressure suit i've tried. Should be pretty easy to find them in your neck of the woods; they're made for snowmobiling but work great on moto. Now's the time to shop around too, all the racers/riders are dumping their gear for the summer.

Leatt now makes pressure suits and chest protectors that integrate with their neck braces.

Atomic-Moto has some...

Leatt Body armour

I just bought the adventure suit, it is fantastic, and the although the arms were a little loose, I just unzipped them and am using other arm-our. Leave the front and back removable pieces on. The back protector is CE certified level 2, so offers better protection. This fits extremely well. I scored a new one off CL for $170, so under $400 all in for the neck ring and armour!
On another note, especially for Americans with the dollar what it is, check out the price on this brace:

Smokin' deal, I bought one and love it.
No, I do not work for either company
