I used to Race BMX and my dad insisted I wear a chest protector after we saw a kids collar bone and sternum meet another racers bar end atvery high rate of speed….anyhow. The First one I had was the very rigid very bulkt Motorcross type proctector (sorta looks like football shoulder pads) and I wore it on the outside of the jersey just so I could easily take it off because it was bulky and uncomfortable. Now I had the more modern version after which is what I’m assuming you’re talking about the more for the lack of a better word fluid stuff that isn’t just pieces of hard plastic linked together with nylon webbing like the stuff Six One Six is putting out I liked wearing this more organic feeling body armor under the jersey..and so did my sponsor.
