The RP and CO are the flavor of the day. They are no better than many other products and cost an arm and a leg. So many people think if it costs more...it is "cooler". I get a kick out of the fact that some people buy a name more than the product. I rode in a RP a couple of times and didn't like the fit and feel.

Try on as many as you can before making a decision based on what fits you the best. Most people at events, after they ride, are usually happy to let you try their body protectors on.

I'm looking at the Airowear Outlyne. I've been hunting to be able to find where I can try one on, but I really like the way they're made for women- although they ARE pricey, I would love to try one on and possibly get one, since they meet standards. Hey, if they're good enough for the olympics... =]

There is one Tipperary that is certified, it is The "tipperary air esprit". I own one and I really like it. This one has almost a turtle shell back. It is very protective. I didnt get the tipperary eventer vest or ride light cause they really don't look all that protective...

Yeah, and if I had known that mine wasn't certified two years ago when I started competing, I would've gotten a different vest!

I have a Charles Owen and it is fantastic. I had an Intec Flex Rider and I hated it so much, it was acctually painful to wear.

I love everything Charles Owen makes, even though most is expensive, it's all really good quality.

I personally don't like the CO's. I just think they are way too uncomfortable. Yeah, they are protective, but I don't want to be pulling down the whole time I ride. Rodney Powells are super comfy, but also very very protective

I'll check out both of those just to see what i'd like better
