Question Good body protectors?

My riding instructor has suggested that since my riding is becoming more serious and I'm jumping higher and trying new stuff I should get a body protector. There's so many brands to choose from though, so I was wondering if you could suggest any good brands or types of body protector, as long as they're not over 100 and preferably a brand that I could purchase in the UK or order online, thanks a lot!

In fact Airowears are much cheaper in Europe than they are in US. Very comfy, so I'd recommend to look into one as well.

I have a Tipperary sport :) I will event in it. It is $300 but well worth it!

PT, with all respect Tipperary are not certified and provide no real protection.

Why would the sell them if they weren't certified? So many people are using them....

Yes, I personally find it ironic, especially for the price, but they are not certified still (you can check pretty much any Internet shop selling them, you'll see they are not unlike Airowear, Woof, CO, RP, etc.). The reason people use them is because they are so light, flexible and comfortable. Until quite recently most certified vests felt like you are packed in a box and/or restricted in motion (and for some people even newer ones feel this way). With newer technologies it's not a case anymore really (say, Airowear is very comfy, Woof (I have one) doesn't feel like a box either, I've heard RP is really nice as well but I never had a chance to try it).

I got my Airowear from the UK. It was cheaper and you can customize the colors! Love it.
