Body Protection

I am upgrading my body armor this year, as the stuff I have is pretty old and bulky. I am looking for more minimal style of protection, body only. I like the look of the G-Form product, but maybe there is something out there that might get my attention. I have looked over Chain Reaction Cycles and not a lot grabbed my interest. Give me some suggestions. What you use, like, or want for yourself. Keep in mind, this is for FR/DH bike park purposes and needs to be able to accommodate a neck brace.

I have been using the Seven iDP Control Suit for two or three seasons now Very comfortable, flexible and fairly thin, yet very protective too. Designed to play well with Atlas or Leatt braces too. Seven has some more minimalist offerings too.

the only thing the Control Suit lacks is attached elbow protection; but all the Seven elbow guards are pretty sweet. Or, you could get its cousin, the Atlas Guardian, which does have attached elbow guards.

I ordered the Seven Control suit off Jenson for 55 US. I figured its going to be the best bang for my buck. I don't know yet if it is the minimal I am looking for, but it looks like it provides lots of protection.
