Dirt Gear: Roost Guard vs Pressure suit

Pros and cons of each?

Pressure suit has built in pads for elbows, shoulders, back, chest, and kidney belt.

Roost Guard + elbow pads + kidney belt covers same areas?


Riding properly offroad sucks in a big heavy jacket, but so does crashing without padding. So what do you wear for poker runs, hare scrambles, mx, etc?

I have always worn a pressure suit until this last year. Then I started wearing a kidney belt and a chest protector "shirt". It's made by shock doctor but I think the design got bought from someone else. It's a lot like the TLD one here, https://www.troyleedesigns.com/products/1211-02 it has padding in the front and along the spine.

The pros of changing over was better airflow and a little better movement. Pressure suits tend not to breath as well. Pressure suits are nice because it's an all in one deal. That is nice!

Neither. Try a Tekvest sometime.

The pressure suits I tried were uncomfortable ... bunched up, crept up my back, pinched in the armpits... My concentration was on fighting the gear, not riding.

"Roost guards" are not for impact protection, they're for roost protection. The plastic chest protectors are rather uncomfortable with a pack on, but do offer moderate protection against wrecks.
