There is absolutely no reason what-so-ever that you could not wear a wrist brace.
If you need it, then use it. No one will ask you to remove it, nor can you get disquallified for having it on.
The vest, absolutely. I hvae that vest and I love it. Yes, it is ASTM approved and meets BETA level 3 standards of protection.
Do not get any vest that is not ASTM approved nor certified. The Tipperary vests that you see that are quite popular, are NOT certified nor approved. I wouldn't touch them with a 10 foot pole.
The helmet, there is nothing wrong with it. I see alot riding in that model of helmet and it works fine. So long as your equiment is ASTM approved, you're good to go.
Remember, no type of equipment out there will protect you from any sort of fall that can happen out on the CC course. Anything can happen out there while on course, but the equipement you choose to put on your body, shoud beable to help protect you from severities that could happen to you.
