breastplate opinions?

What type of breastplate do you use? Why do you like that style? Which discipline do you use your breastplate for? Elastic or no elastic, 2, 3 or 5 points? What type do you think allows most freedom for shoulder movement? Did the shape of your horse affect the type of breastplate you purchased? Do you prefer buckles or clips? If you use multiple saddles, do they require different types of breastplates to stay in the correct position? Does your horse even need a breastplate, or do you use one for the look/fashion?

*This is for a project I'm working on with a friend, and somewhat to satisfy my curiosity.

Some different breastplate types, for reference.

Amerigo 5-Point

Passier Auriga 5-Point

Dyon 5-Point

Typical 5-Point

Mons 3-Point (attaches to billets, not dees).

3-Point (minus wither bridge).

3-Point (with wither bridge).

2-Point (dee attachment).

2-Point (billet attachment).

I would never ever get a breastplate with elastic because I've seen them snap while in use and its horrible.

I use a 3-Point with wither bridge, made out of biothane with waffle neoprene. I chose the one I did because of the amout of adjustability it has for my growing horse. The neoprene prevents any chafing. My breastplate also attaches by clips. I find them to be much easier seeing as I switch it between multiple saddles. I use a breastplate to keep the saddle from slipping back on trail rides. There are a couple fairly steep hills where I ride.
